Description

Zoom on the PowerStroke PS142012

The PowerStroke PS142012, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The PowerStroke PS142012's aluminum axial pump, powered by a 13 amp induction motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (approximately 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). The PowerStroke PS142012 thus has a cleaning power of 2400 Cleaning Units.

The PS142012 is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

The PowerStroke PS142012 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D24 x W18 x H36 in. The robust and sturdy metal frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PS142012 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

With a weight of only 45 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 10" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The PowerStroke PS142012 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 1 gal tank. The PowerStroke PS142012 includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 25 ft high-pressure hose is included with the unit. However, it doesn't feature any proper storage solution for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
