Zoom on the Powerhorse 1574200

In summary, the Powerhorse 1574200 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile 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

With an impressive 420 cc engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of 4000 PSI (roughly 67 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Powerhorse 1574200's cleaning power of 16000 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1.7 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Powerhorse 1574200 offers superb mobility, with a 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 are mainly responsible for its heavy 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

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. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • 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: 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.
