  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

Using a 14.9 amp induction motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 4160 Cleaning Units.
