Zoom on the PowerStroke PS80544B
The PowerStroke PS80544B is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
The PowerStroke PS80544B's axial cam pump, powered by a powerful 212 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (approximately 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). The PowerStroke PS80544B thus has a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.
The engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.
A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.66 gallon is used to store gasoline.
Design & Handling
With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W20 x H37 in, the PowerStroke PS80544B provides great mobility. Its sturdy steel tubing frame provides 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. Its 212 cc engine and steel tubing frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Since the PS80544B has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
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: Detergent storage is ensured by a 1 gal tank. The PowerStroke PS80544B 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: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

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, which can reach a PSI of 3100, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other gas-powered units that cost between $300 and $400. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
- Considering its water flow, this washer, with a GPM (gallons per minute) of 2.5 is in the average compared to other devices in its price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Predator 3100, which can reach up to 2.8 GPM.
- Reaching up to 7750 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the PS80544B is one of the more efficient amongst its similarly priced peers. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Westinghouse WPX3400 and its 8840 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 7500 and 8000 Cleaning Units, the PowerStroke PS80544B 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.
