Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BCXP22000
In a nutshell, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22000 is a medium duty pressure washer that allows:
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 13 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2000 PSI (around 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the AR Blue Clean BCXP22000 has a cleaning power of 3400 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22000's motor can be easily started by a convenient ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
The AR Blue Clean BCXP22000 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W16 x H36 in. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the BCXP22000 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Since the unit weighs only 34 lbs, it is very easily carried around. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 8" wheels.
The AR Blue Clean BCXP22000 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
