Zoom on the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200
In summary, the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200 is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning

- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 13 amp motor, its aluminum axial pump delivers a pressure of 2200 PSI (roughly 37 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200's cleaning power of 2640 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200's motor can be easily started by a convenient ON/OFF button. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
The AR Blue Clean MAXX2200 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23.2 x W18.7 x H36.5 in. The robust metal frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the MAXX2200 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of only 49 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 5" wheels.
In addition to that, the unit can be detached from the frame to become a versatile hand-carry device that allows you to use it anywhere on-the-go.
Along with the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.2 gal tank. The detergent dilution ratio can be manually selected, using a dial. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
- Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

The AR Blue Clean MAXX2200'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 MAXX2200 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- Reaching a 2200 PSI max pressure output, the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other electric units in the $240 to $300 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX4600 with 3000 PSI.
- The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000 has the highest GPM of 1.8.
- The MAXX2200 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 2640 CU (PSI x GPM). If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000 and its 5400 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 2500 and 3000 Cleaning Units, the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200 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.
