Description

Zoom on the PowerStroke PS142012

In a nutshell, the PowerStroke PS142012 is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The PowerStroke PS142012's aluminum axial pump, powered by a 13 amp 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.

Being an electric pressure washer, the PowerStroke PS142012's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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 offers superb mobility, with a 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.

Standing at only 45 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. 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'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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 1 gal tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the PowerStroke PS142012 will dilute the detergent with 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. But, there is no proper storage solution designed for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX3200, with 1.76 GPM.
  • The 2400 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), of the PS142012 sit at an average, in reference to other electric units of similar price.
