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, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
The PowerStroke PS80544B's axial cam pump, powered by an impressive 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.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s engine.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.66 gallon.
Design & Handling
The PowerStroke PS80544B offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W20 x H37 in. 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.
The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 70 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 212 cc engine and steel tubing frame. The PS80544B can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.
The PowerStroke PS80544B's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description 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. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
- 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.
