Zoom on the Powerhorse 1574200

The Powerhorse 1574200, a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate 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

The Powerhorse 1574200 in use

The Powerhorse 1574200

Using an impressive 420 cc engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of up to 4000 PSI (roughly 67 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 16000 Cleaning Units.

The engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 1.7 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

The Powerhorse 1574200 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D29 x W24 x H46 in. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the 1574200 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The unit's weight of 126 lbs renders its carrying and transportation challenging, as it is far from lightweight. Its 420 cc engine, the triplex pump and frame add up to a large chunk of the device's weight. However, the unit is manipulated smoothly thanks to its two 10" never-flat wheels, which play a key role in its maneuvrability.

Main Features

The Powerhorse 1574200

The Powerhorse 1574200's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a dedicated tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 35 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

The Powerhorse 1574200's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Powerhorse 1574200 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Able to deliver a maximum pressure of 4000 PSI, the Powerhorse 1574200 is one of the gas-powered products that produce an above average water pressure, in the $700 to $800 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Pressure-Pro PP4440K with 4400 PSI.
  • With a water flow of up to 4 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the best of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water.
  • With a rather impressive value of 16000 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the 1574200 has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Pressure-Pro PP4440K with its 17600 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
