Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P
In summary, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Using a 13 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of up to 2300 PSI (roughly 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3910 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BCXP22300P gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
With its hand truck design, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P provides great mobility. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the BCXP22300P convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Weighing 55.3 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its motor and steel tubing frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 8" wheels, the BCXP22300P remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.
Along with the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail 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: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its metal wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 3 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
|Concrete, brick, masonry||Suitable||Suitable||Use with caution|
|Siding, gutters, house||Use with caution||Use with caution||Not recommended|
|Fencing, deck, patio||Use with caution||Use with caution||Not recommended|
|Lawn equipment, boat, RV||Use with caution||Use with caution||Not recommended|
Note: The shape of the nozzles above is for illustration purposes only and may differ.
Red cross: Not recommended. Green check: Suitable. Orange check: Use with caution.
- Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
- Onboard storage: The AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P features a handy storage tray, which allows you to neatly store all its nozzles. The storage solution offered by this model is quite singular, as it allows storing the nozzles directly on the gun, instead of on the unit.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P comes with nozzle cleaner, pressure hose, power cord, wand, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water) and spray gun.
The AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- With a maximum pressure output of 2300 PSI, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P finds itself in the expected pressure range among electric units that cost between $195 and $255. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX4600, which reaches up to 3000 PSI.
- With a water flow of up to 1.7 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the upper end of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Realm BY02-BIMK, with 1.75 GPM.
- Reaching up to 3910 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the BCXP22300P is one of the more efficient amongst its similarly priced peers. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Realm BY02-BIMK and its 4550 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 3500 and 4000 Cleaning Units, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
