Description

Zoom on the PowerStroke PS80544B

In a nutshell, the PowerStroke PS80544B is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a powerful 212 cc engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (almost 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.66 gallon.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W20 x H37 in, the PowerStroke PS80544B offers great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PS80544B convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 70 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 212 cc engine and steel tubing frame. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the PS80544B to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

The PowerStroke PS80544B comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 1 gal tank. The PowerStroke PS80544B has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

The PowerStroke PS80544B's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the PowerStroke PS80544B compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The PowerStroke PS80544B, with a maximum pressure output of 3100 PSI, has an average pressure output, when considering gas-powered units in $400 to $500 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the DeWalt DXPW3625, which reaches up to 3600 PSI.
  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 2.5 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 Lifan LFQ3370E, with a GPM of 3.
  • The 7750 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), of the PS80544B result in an average cleaning efficiency, compared to similarly priced gas-powered units. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Lifan LFQ3370E with its 9900 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.

Price comparison
