Zoom on the PowerStroke PS80519B
The PowerStroke PS80519B, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 150 cc engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2200 PSI (around 37 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). Combined, these values mean that the PowerStroke PS80519B has a cleaning power of 4400 Cleaning Units.
The engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.
Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.31 gallon.
Design & Handling
The PowerStroke PS80519B offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19.2 x W17.2 x H34.8 in. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The handle adds to the PS80519B convenience of transport.
The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 58.1 lbs. Its 150 cc engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. The PS80519B can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two never-flat wheels.
The PowerStroke PS80519B comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The PowerStroke PS80519B has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps.
- 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 3 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

- The PowerStroke PS80519B, a device which can produce up to 2200 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the gas-powered pressure washers in the $190-250 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3200 with 3200 PSI.
- When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. 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 Westinghouse WPX3200, with 2.5 GPM.
- With 4400 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the PS80519B is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Westinghouse WPX3200, which can reach up to 8000 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 3500 and 5000 Cleaning Units, the PowerStroke PS80519B is on the cheap side of the price range.
