Design & Handling
The PowerStroke PS80544B is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W20 x H37 in. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PS80544B convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 70 lbs. Its 212cc 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 has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
- 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
