Description

Zoom on the PowerStroke PS142012

In summary, the PowerStroke PS142012 is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted 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

Its aluminum axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp induction motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (almost 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2400 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the PS142012 is started simply 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 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D24 x W18 x H36 in. The robust metal frame guarantees longevity of 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. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 10" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

Along with the PowerStroke PS142012 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 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. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: This washer comes with an easy-to-connect 25 ft high-pressure hose. However, it doesn't feature any proper storage solution for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

The PowerStroke PS142012's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the PowerStroke PS142012 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The PowerStroke PS142012, a device which can produce up to 2000 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $170-210 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX4600 that can reach up to 3000 PSI.
  • This washer, with a GPM of 1.2 (gallons per minute) has a somewhat lower water flow value compared to 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 SPX2005P, with 1.8 GPM.
  • With 2400 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the PS142012 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Realm BY02-BIMK with its 4550 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the PowerStroke PS142012 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.
