Zoom on the PowerStroke PS14120B
In summary, the PowerStroke PS14120B is a light duty pressure washer, which provides:
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1600 PSI (almost 27 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 1920 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the PS14120B is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 32 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L31.3 x W10.8 x H20.2 in, the PowerStroke PS14120B makes mobility one of its core strengths. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 28.4 lbs. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 7" never-flat wheels.
Along with the PowerStroke PS14120B itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a dedicated tank. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
- Pressure hose: The 20 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of easy-to-use straps.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.

The PowerStroke PS14120B's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the PowerStroke PS14120B compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The PowerStroke PS14120B, a device which can produce up to 1600 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $80-110 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Realm BY02-BCOH with 2100 PSI.
- In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the WEN PW20, with a GPM of 1.76.
- The PS14120B has 1920 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other electric devices of this price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the WEN PW20 with its 3572.8 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 1500 and 2000 Cleaning Units, the PowerStroke PS14120B is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
