  10 Questions
Q: I have this unit and want to buy a aftermarket foam lance. What type of a brass fitting/type will I need to buy to use the foam gun with this exact model?
by Chris on March 21, 2012

A: Since AR has very unique fittings, you will have to purchase an AR brand foamer attachement.

Unfortunately we do not carry an AR foamer or any foamer that would work with the AR brand pressure washers.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: WILL A WATER SUPPLY FROM A GRAVITY FED DRUM WORK WITH THIS UNIT NEED TO WASH BIKES AT THE TRACK THANKS BOB
by BOB on February 25, 2012

A: No, more than likely it will not. This machine not only requires at least 2 gpm's of water coming into the machine, you also need about 40-50 psi going to the machines intake in order to get proper operation.

Your best option would be to look into purchasing a Karcher brand machine. After initially priming their machines, all of Karcher's pumps have the capability to accept water from a tank with minimum psi and gpm's.

I am posting a link to all of the Karcher machines we carry:

Q: Hi Bill!

I am in the designing and bidding process of modifying my heavy equipment service truck with a pressure washing capability.

I need you to find me the right model (please!)

It has to be electric powered(I have an onboard generator), medium to low pressure, but most important..... weather proof.

It will be mounted to my truck and exposed to the elements 24 hours a day. And a model that is easy to drain (freeze proof) would be a big plus.

What do you think sir? can you find me the perfect one?

by Anonymous on October 16, 2011

A: Unfortunately we do not carry any pressure washers that are fully weather proof, especially in an electric version. Your best option, from what we offer, would be to purchase either a Kranzle or DirtKiller brand electric pressure washer. Both of those brands use freeze proof pumps on their machine.

I am posting a link to both brands below:


Kranzle

DirtKiller

Q: Having trouble finding an electric that will work on a low pressure gravity feed. Seems some will not work at all, only on hose pressure. What models would be good for this?
by Ron from New Jersey on September 22, 2011

A: The only brands of pressure washers that could do what you are looking for is either Karcher, Kranzle, or Dirkiller. All other brands of electric pressure washers will NOT be capable of this. This AR machine will NOT do what you are looking to do.

I am posting a few links below to these 3 brands of products we offer:

Q: Is the unit (AR Blue Clean 1500) "new" or "refurbished"? Also, what is the warranty period and who supplies the warranty coverage?
by Tom from Pennsylvania on July 25, 2011

A: All pressure washers we offer are completely brand new, direct from the manufacturer. We do not even offer "refurbished" or "reconditioned" machines on our site. This model comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty. Any issues with the machine within that period would be handled by AR directly.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I like the AR Blue Clean 1500 psi and I wanted to know if it can be mounted on a wall with the bracket that is attached? can I add a 50 foot hose and if you have them what is the cost?
by Monti Joines from Maine on June 15, 2011

A: In most cases you could mount this, but would not be a pressure washer I would deem suitable for mounting, it just does not have the power to add on long extension hoses. If you wanted to do something like this, I would suggest going with the AR610 or 620. None of these though are really meant to be put on a wall, but with the correct bracket could be done.

Thanks,

Q: Moving to a house on the water with a boat house, need something small to wash the bird droppings from the deck . Will the little 1500 unit do the job.
Thanks a bunch

by Bill Ducz from Florida on May 07, 2011

A: Yes, this would be fine for something like that. Worse case, you would have to add a little detergent from time to time.

Thanks,

Q: Is this unit powerful enough to remove grafitti with paint off a wooden fence? I have kids who keep using my fence as an art canvas, and need to find something that will pull the paint out of the wooden fence.
by Cindee Zentz from Colorado on May 05, 2011

A: To do a job like this, you really should use a gas pressure washer. More than likely you would want to use a rotary/turbo nozzle as well. Removing paint from wood can be a little tricky as well. In most instances you may end up damaging the wood, so you have to be real careful and you may not be able to get all of it.

Thanks,

Q: Hi i am looking for Ar118 model my country voltage 220 volt can you advise me .
by David Tan on April 11, 2011

A: Unfortunately this model only comes in 120 Volt.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Can an extension cord be used or is it limited to the 25 foot power cord it comes with? How will this unit work for cleaning of a ski boat?
by Jeff from Idaho on April 04, 2011

A: Using an extension cord is not recommended with electric pressure washers. However, if the situation requires you to do so, you can use a 25' cord as long as it is an outdoor rated 14 gauge cord. You may increase the extension cord length up to 50' but then you have to increase the size of the cord to a 12 gauge cord.

Pressure Washers Direct Recommended

AR is famous for their high performance pumps, and even in this economical hand held unit they put in a pump that's a step above most units in this price range.

The pump has 3 stainless steel plungers that are more durable than the typical wobble plate pumps on other units in this class.

Plus, the handy size easily fits in tight places a larger unit may not- just grab and go!

No Pressure
This machine is well built but it just doesn't deliver. I read in one of the reviews that if you put your finger on he stream of water it hurts. Well, my 3 year old son did it and he just kept laughing. It doesn't even clean the dirt from the pavement or from the bricks on the floor of my back yard. I am most definitely returning it.
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight
Cons: No Pressure At All
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Amy,
Please make sure that you have squeezed the spray trigger and let the water run for a minute before starting the motor- this drives out all the air from the pump. Also check to make sure the nozzle is turned all the way to the MAX position.

You will also want to make sure there is nothing blocking the screen where the garden hose attaches, and that you are using a garden hose at least 5/8 in diameter, and less than 30 feet long so the pump is getting enough water.

Please be VERY careful with the spray- a garden hose is about 30 PSI, so 1500 PSI could seriously injure you or your son.

If none of tips help, please call the folks at AR, toll free at 866-235-5112. They will be able to help with some simple troubleshooting or warranty replacement.

Wife Cleans House!
This unit is light weight and does the job of car/boat wash, deck cleaning, and house cleaning without blowing paint away. So easy my wife cleaned the house- now that is value.

It also eliminates ethanol fuel problems.

Won't Connect Properly
Bought the washer and began to assemble...could not connect high pressure hose fitting into the gun...called...talked to James...he asked for pictures..did that and he sent a replacement gun.

I still can not connect hose to gun without it easily falling out- could it be the hose? Don't know the answer but I have a new product that I can't use. HELP!
Cons: Difficult To Use

Edward,
Your pressure washer has a 1 year Factory Warranty, so please give the folks at AR a call, toll free, at 866-235-5112. (Be sure to have the serial number of your unit handy when you call).

Since the second gun didn't work, they will be able to replace the hose or replace your pressure washer.

Great Machine!
I needed to clean my gutters and a white concrete wall that had turned black through the years - the machine was very easy to use, and I am no "spring chicken"!

The only problem I had was setting the machine up - the directions could have been better. Other than that, I would highly recommend this product.

I have operated a couple of power washers in this caliber of machine... this one is far superior to those and while I have only had a short period of time I am satisfied with it's performance and is a better product than I had anticipated.
