The Powerhorse 115176 in use

The Powerhorse 115176

The Powerhorse 115176's axial cam pump, powered by a powerful 212cc (6 hp) engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3400 PSI (approximately 57 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Thus, the Powerhorse 115176 achieves a cleaning power of 9180 Cleaning Units.

For this gas-powered pressure washer, the engine is started using a time-tested pull-start mechanism.

Containing gasoline, the pressure washer's steel fuel tank can hold a maximum of 0.95 gallon.

Design & Handling

Enhanced mobility is a key feature of the Powerhorse 115176, thanks to its hand truck design. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly, providing stability and protection for internal components, even under demanding working conditions. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the 115176 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

At 68 lbs, this unit strikes a balance between portability and stability, making it easy for most users to handle. A significant portion of this weight is attributed to the inclusion of the 212cc engine and a sturdy steel frame. Even so, the 115176's two 10" never-flat wheels maintain easy maneuverability.

Main Features

The Powerhorse 115176 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. The Powerhorse 115176 features an automatic soap dilution mechanism that dilutes detergent according to a predefined ratio of 15:1. The pressure washer automatically dispenses and mixes the detergent with the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: For easy organization, the included 30 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose can be stored on the unit using a set of convenient hooks when it's not in use, ensuring a clutter-free workspace.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table provides information on the 4 included nozzles and their recommended surface uses.
