- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces

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.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.66 gallon of gasoline.
Design & Handling
The PowerStroke PS80544B offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W20 x H37 in. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. 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. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 212 cc engine and its steel tubing frame. But, as the PS80544B does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.
Along with the PowerStroke PS80544B itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a 1 gal tank. The PowerStroke PS80544B features an automatic soap dilution mechanism, that will dilute your detergent with a 20:1 ratio. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
