Zoom on the Portland 63254

The Portland 63254, a light duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces

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

The Portland 63254 in use

The Portland 63254

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1750 PSI (almost 29 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2275 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the 63254 is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D10 x W10.5 x H31 in, the Portland 63254 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the 63254 convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 19 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. A set of two 4" never-flat wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

  • Pressure hose: The 20 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand can be easily stored in a dedicated slot. The adjustable wand lets you adjust the spray pattern and intensity for each task, by twisting the spray nozzle at the far end of the wand.

The Portland 63254's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Portland 63254 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Reaching a 1750 PSI max pressure output, the Portland 63254 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other electric units in the $70 to $100 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 SPX2598-MAX with 2000 PSI.
  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.3 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Realm BY01-VBS-WT, with a GPM of 1.65.
  • The 63254 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 2275 CU (PSI x GPM). When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the Sun Joe SPX2598-MAX and its 3200 Cleaning Units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Portland 63254 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.

    Sadly I bought it new very excited power sprayed the deck had to keep it real close inch by inch took forever it did the job that’s the only time I used it put it away for the winter pull it out to just rinse off a window it didn’t have hardly any power for being brand new used once it was worse than a garden hose you had to have it right up against something otherwise it was just a week low pressure stream or mist. I’m going to try an old ring kit tonight but I feel that using something once it should still be new.

    + PROS: Affordable easy to use
    - CONS: Not very powerful needing work after one use whether it's SEALS or sticky valves I don't know the handles leaking it's hard to get that black nozzle piece off the spray gun to put the soap container on there it's kind of a mess carrying it the wand does wobbling all over the cords are coming undone I don't know I should have got a gas one or something a little bigger
