Zoom on the Powerhorse 750143
In a nutshell, the Powerhorse 750143 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
With a powerful 212 cc (6 hp) engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3100 PSI (roughly 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Powerhorse 750143's cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s engine.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon.
Design & Handling
The Powerhorse 750143 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W25.5 x H38.5 in. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the 750143 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 68 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 212 cc engine and steel frame. But, as the 750143 does have a set of two 10" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.
The Powerhorse 750143'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: 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: A neat storage for the included 30 ft ⌀5/16" 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.
