Power

The Portland 63254 in use

The Portland 63254

Powered by a 13 amp universal motor, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 1750 PSI (around 29 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Portland 63254 has 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 very easy to carry around. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. A set of two 4" never-flat wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

The Portland 63254

Along with the Portland 63254 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the gun.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 20 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by 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.

    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
