Zoom on the Husqvarna HB32

The Husqvarna HB32 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile 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

With an impressive 208 cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 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), resulting in the Husqvarna HB32's cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Briggs & Stratton CR950 engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

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 and sturdy welded steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the HB32 convenience of transport.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 80 lbs. Its 208 cc Briggs & Stratton CR950 engine and welded steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. However, the two 10" pneumatic wheels allow the HB32 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

Along with the Husqvarna HB32 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The included 30 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

Other Features

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Husqvarna HB32 are also the owner's manual and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as wand, pressure hose, soap hose and spray gun.
