Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P
In a nutshell, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
- intense cleaning of hard surfaces
The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.
Powered by a 13 amp universal motor, its aluminum axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2300 PSI (around 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1800 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM. Combined, these values mean that the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P has a cleaning power of 1980 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 robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the BCXP22300P convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of only 31.3 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 8" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.
The AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 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 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its metal wand can be easily 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.

- 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: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P also comes with power cord, wand, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose, spray gun and foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water).
