Description

Zoom on the Rainier RPX2700

In summary, the Rainier RPX2700 is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Rainier RPX2700 in use

The Rainier RPX2700

With a powerful 212 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2700 PSI (roughly 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Rainier RPX2700's cleaning power of 6210 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s engine.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The Rainier RPX2700 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of L21 x W19.5 x H39 in. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RPX2700 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 64 lbs. Its 212 cc engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the RPX2700 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

Along with the Rainier RPX2700 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 0.5 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose (2700 PSI rating), which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun: The included classic ergonomic spray gun can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

  • With a maximum pressure output of 2700 PSI, the Rainier RPX2700 finds itself in the expected pressure range among gas-powered units that cost between $225 and $270. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the A-iPower APW3100, which reaches up to 3100 PSI.
