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, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • applying 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

Powered by a powerful 420 cc engine, its triplex pump can deliver a pressure of 4000 PSI (around 67 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Powerhorse 1574200 has 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

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

At 126 lbs, we can't really say that the unit is a lightweight, and manually lifting or transporting it could be a challenge. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 420 cc engine, the triplex pump and frame. However, the unit is manipulated smoothly thanks to its two 10" never-flat wheels, which play a key role in its maneuverability.

Main Features

The Powerhorse 1574200 in use

The Powerhorse 1574200

Along with the Powerhorse 1574200 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The included 35 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
