AR Blue Clean AR383 Electric Pressure Washer Review
Life is messy. Home’s get dirty, cars splash through mud puddles, and porches get grimy. It is a fact of life and whether you like it or not; this also means you have to do a little scrubbing. Pressure washers take the manual labor out of cleaning while ensuring that your home, car, and all other items are sparkling clean and looking brand new. One popular choice in pressure washers is the AR Blue Clean. It is easy to use and very portable. To see what other features it has to offer; read on for our full AR Blue Clean review below.
Features of the AR Blue Clean
When you want to give your home a makeover by cleaning it from top to bottom, the AR Blue Clean promises to be just the powerhouse that you have been searching for. It is powerful enough to clean decks and patios, but gentle enough to work well with siding and vehicles. This is because it puts out a max PSI of 1,900 using a 1.5 HP with 13 AMP universal motor. The pump is a tri-axial plunger pump to deliver even more impressive performance.
This machine comes with everything that you could need in the way of attachments. It gives you a professional style washer gun, two different wands, a 20ft long high-pressure hose and a 14-ounce detergent bottle. The wands are quick change wands and one is a washer turbo wand.
This pressure washer is environmentally friendly because it uses 80% less water than your typical garden hose while producing 40% more power. It is also electric rather than gas-powered and therefore very quiet when in use. The power cord extends to 35ft to ensure you can reach everything you need to reach with ease.
It is easy to assemble as well. You simply have to pull it out of the box, insert your hose reel, attach the handle and your garden hose. From there, you plug it into a 3-prong outlet that has a ground on it and start using it to clean everything you have outdoors.
In the event that you need support for the AR Blue Clean, you should know that their customer support team is considered best in class for their support. All contact information is found in your owner’s manual and you can make contact anytime.
The Blue Clean also comes with a full 1-year “Bumper to Bumper” warranty. This means that if you have any issues with your purchase within a year of purchase; it will be covered.
This pressure washer weighs in at only 27 pounds. It measures 28.5 x 12.25 x 11.25-inches. This means that you will never have issues moving it around your yard. To further ensure it is easy to move around, you also have a set of tires on the rear of it.
This pressure washer is certified by the CSA International, which proves that it is safe to use in all areas of the world.
Buyer’s Feedback on the AR Blue Clean
For all of its features, this pressure washer does not rate as highly as you may expect with its 3.9-star average. However, considering it has more than 3,000 reviews, this is still fairly impressive. If you look a little further to find out why some people had issues with it; you will see that most issues were defects from the factory and that those issues presented themselves well within the warranty period. Therefore, those people were not out by much. The only other complaint is that the plastic hose adapter does leak and that you need to upgrade to a brass connector. This is a minor issue for most, because the upgrade is affordable.
In truth, you will find much nicer reviews about it and a lot of people who say that it is a wonderful pressure washer to use. They like the variety of attachments, the easy maneuverability, and the way that it can get rid of all their home’s dirtiest areas. Those who say that they did have to contact customer support, say that their questions or concerns were handled by a friendly team member. They like that one wand has a rotating tip and the other one adjusts to spray out different amounts of water, eliminating the need for tips everywhere. There are even some owners who say that this pressure washer is comparable to stronger gas powered ones and that it can blast away mold, mildew, and all other “yucky” stuff.
Our Opinion of This AR Blue Clean Pressure Washer
The simple truth is; not all pressure washers will be right for everyone, but this one does seem to come close to it. It is affordable and powerful. It has two wands, which is not always available with one single purchase. It has plenty of reach with the long cord and hose. It is powerful without being dangerously overpowering. We like that it has a decent sized detergent bottle for you to use. However, we can understand that a leaky pressure washer is not a good thing. If the brass fitting is required to ensure that your machine will work, we feel that it should be available through contacting customer support, but there are enough people that love it that we do not feel it is that big of an issue. Therefore, we also do not think that it is a universal issue that you should expect to have when you purchase this machine. The build quality is there for us, it does not seem like something that was pieced together, and all in all, we think it should work well for anyone who simply wants a cleaner area to live and play.
