Description

Zoom on the PowerStroke PS80555E

In summary, the PowerStroke PS80555E is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The PowerStroke PS80555E in use

The PowerStroke PS80555E

With a 196 cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values as per PW101-2010), resulting in the PowerStroke PS80555E's cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

The engine provides a convenient and reliable start of this gas-powered pressure washer, with a dual start mechanism: you may choose the more convenient electric start, or the classic pull-start mechanism. The electric start requires a battery, which is included.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.26 gallon.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20.3 x W17.3 x H37.5 in, the PowerStroke PS80555E offers great mobility. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PS80555E convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Weighing 56 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc engine and its steel tubing frame. But, as the PS80555E does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

Along with the PowerStroke PS80555E 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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 1 gal tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the PowerStroke PS80555E will dilute the detergent with a 20:1 ratio. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
