Description

Briggs & Stratton CR950 Series™ engine delivers 208ccs of cleaning power. Adjustable axial cam pump allows user to adjust pressure between 300-3200 PSI. 2.5 Max GPM per PWMA PW101-2010. Fully welded durable frame. 30’ flexible hose for fewer kinks and easier storage.

Zoom on the Husqvarna HB32

In a nutshell, the Husqvarna HB32 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer that allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

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.

Power

Using an impressive 208cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Briggs & Stratton CR950 engine.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.8 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the Husqvarna HB32 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the HB32 convenience of transport.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 80 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 208cc Briggs & Stratton CR950 engine and its welded steel frame. However, the two 10" pneumatic wheels allow the HB32 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

The Husqvarna HB32's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 30 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by 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.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

The Husqvarna HB32's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Husqvarna HB32 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 $600.

  • With its 3200 PSI max pressure output, the Husqvarna HB32 is in the expected pressure range, for gas-powered units in the $600-700 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the DeWalt DXPW4035 with 4000 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. 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 DeWalt DXPW4035, with 3.5 GPM.
  • The HB32 has 8000 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other gas-powered devices of this price. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the DeWalt DXPW4035, which can reach up to 14000 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
