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 and high-reach cleaning

- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
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.
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.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Portland 63254 comes with wand, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), power cord, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose and spray gun.
