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 or high reach areas
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
The AR Blue Clean MAXX2200's aluminum axial pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2200 PSI (approximately 37 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The AR Blue Clean MAXX2200 thus has a cleaning power of 2640 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the MAXX2200 gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF button. 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 and approximate dimensions of D23.2 x W18.7 x H36.5 in, the AR Blue Clean MAXX2200 provides great mobility. 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 very easy to carry around. A set of two 5" wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.2 gal tank. The detergent dilution ratio can be manually selected, using a dial. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: The 25 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.

- Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.

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.
Note: Even though we couldn’t list its price on this page, our research indicates that some retailers sell this unit around $310.
- 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 $300 and $400. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX8000-PRO, which reaches up to 3200 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. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Greenworks GPW2200, which can reach up to 2.3 GPM.
- With the MAXX2200's 2640 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), its cleaning efficiency range may be considered average, compared to electric units of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Greenworks GPW3000 and its 3300 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.
