Zoom on the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200
In a nutshell, the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200 is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- applying 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. Its sturdy metal frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the MAXX2200 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Because the device weighs just 49 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. 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.
The AR Blue Clean MAXX2200's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a removable 0.2 gal tank. The unit features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.

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.
- The AR Blue Clean MAXX2200, which can reach a PSI of 2200, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other electric units that cost between $225 and $315. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX4601 with 3000 PSI.
- In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS has the highest GPM of 1.7.
- The MAXX2200's Cleaning Units, 2640 CU (PSI x GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to electric devices of similar price. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS, which can reach up to 3910 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
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.
