The PowerStroke PS80519B is a gas-powered pressure washer offering a maximum water pressure of 2200 PSI and flow of 2 GPM. (Read full specs)
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
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 150 cc 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.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s engine.
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 steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the PS80519B convenience of transport.
Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 58.1 lbs. Its 150 cc engine and steel tubing frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. However, the two never-flat wheels allow the PS80519B to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.
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 features an automatic soap dilution mechanism, that will dilute your 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: 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 following table illustrates the 3 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
|Concrete, brick, masonry||Suitable||Suitable||Suitable|
|Siding, gutters, house||Use with caution||Suitable||Suitable|
|Fencing, deck, patio||Use with caution||Suitable||Suitable|

- Onboard storage: Stay prepared for any job with PowerStroke PS80519B's handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store any nozzles and accessories which you may need for the job.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation) and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
- Accessories: The PowerStroke PS80519B comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get funnel, oil, wand, pressure hose, soap hose and spray gun.
- Emissions: The PowerStroke PS80519B is CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.
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, which can achieve a PSI of up to 2200, falls behind the other gas-powered pressure washers in the $185 to $265 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 Ryobi RY803111 that can reach up to 3200 PSI.
- The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Powerhorse 750143, with a GPM of 2.5.
- Amongst similarly priced gas-powered devices, the 4400 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the PS80519B rank as low. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Ryobi RY803111 and its 8000 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced 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.
