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 or delicate surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 150cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2200 PSI (roughly 37 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM (values as per PW101-2010), resulting in the PowerStroke PS80519B's cleaning power of 4400 Cleaning Units.
The engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.
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 robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the PS80519B convenience of transport.
With a weight of 58.1 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its 150cc engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Since the PS80519B has a set of two never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
Along with the PowerStroke PS80519B 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: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The table below shows you the 3 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The PowerStroke PS80519B's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the PowerStroke PS80519B compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The PowerStroke PS80519B with its 2200 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $195-255 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 Westinghouse WPX3200 that can reach up to 3200 PSI.
- In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 2 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Kärcher G2900E, which can reach up to 2.6 GPM.
- The PS80519B ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to gas-powered devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 4400 CU (PSI X GPM). In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Westinghouse WPX3200 and its 8000 Cleaning Units.
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.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
