Q: On the fence is the other AR SS worth $30 more
by David Duval from New Hampshire on May 16, 2015

A: The performance will be closely to the same. The SS has nicely upgraded accessories which will last longer and easier to use.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I bought an AR 390 love it! from you guys and would like to make my life easier. Ive found its easier to disconnect the hose from the sprayer when I wind it on to the reel. is there a quick disconnect that would fit my washer? I would also like to improve the time it takes to switching to the mtm foam cannon and back to rinsing. is there a quick disconnect for my washer for that? thanks!
by Dave Wolfs from Ohio on June 26, 2014

A: Since it is an M22 connection, you can purchase adapters to make this possible.
You will want to get one of model D10035 for your gun. You will then want to purchase anywhere between 2-3 of the adapter D10037. Purchase two if you just want to do your standard lance and foamer, purchase 3 if you would like to make your turbo nozzle a quick connect too so you don't ever have to thread them together again.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I want to use this with a MTM Hydro Foam Lance, what adaptor is needed. I was originally looking at the AR383 but it's my understanding there are no adaptors for the 383 to work with the Foam Lance. I'm hoping you have a solution for the 390 because it has metal threads. Thanks
by Jesse on March 21, 2012

A: The MTM Hydro foamer attachment will connect to the AR390 with no problem or any adapters needed. The foamer attachment comes with an M22 threaded adapter that will connect to the trigger gun just fine.
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.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Hi Bill,
I am interested in the new AR 390. I am a home owner using this for small jobs around the house. I was going to buy the AR383 but I think with the new 390 they fixed the hose reel problem? (not just for storage now) Also a longer 30' hose. Since it's new I can't find any reviews for it. The 383 is 1900psi the new is 1800psi would I miss the difference in power? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks

by Hank Mayberry from Ohio on March 27, 2011

A: Yes the new AR390 does comes with a 30' hose versus the AR383 comes with a 25' hose. However, both hose reels are designed for storage use only. With any residential grade pressure washer that has a hose reel installed on it, you should always remove the entire hose from the reel during use. This will prevent any possible blockages within the hose that would cut down on the pressure.

In regards to the psi difference, more than likely you would not notice the difference. However, there is definitely a difference in pressure. Typical pressure from a garden hose is around 70 psi, just for you to compare.

Pressure Washers Direct Recommended

AR produces some of the best electric pressure washers available in the market today, and this is definitely one model that I would recommend.

Unlike most electric pressure washers in this category, this model uses brass fittings- which is a huge plus over the more commonly used plastic fittings.

The reliable pump is paired with a heavy-duty motor and contained in an easy to transport, stable frame. Storage slots on the side keep the wand and nozzles from getting lost, and a pressurized... more

Very Good Machine
I recently bought the AR Blue Clean 1800 psi pressure washer. I am an older person and found the assembly instructions easy to use. So far I have cleaned part of the siding on my mobile home, my covered wood deck the stairs leading up to the deck and an outdoor chair that had set under pine trees and was full of dark gunk. The machine is easy to use and did a great job on everything I have done so far. Everything looks like new. I have great plans for my new favorite toy so I better get back to... more

Not Perfect
I added the special soap in the special compartment, but it barely uses it. I've tried turning the switch dispenser to the opposite side but it's the same. The hose connection leaks a little bit.
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Marcelo,
You will need to turn the adjustable nozzle all the way to the wide setting, and then a little further until you feel a click. (For folks reading this, some nozzles will pull out for the soap mix instead of twisting.) The low pressure allows the unit to suction the soap from the dispenser. This will mix at approximately a 10:1 ratio. Unfortunately, to keep cost low on all brands of consumer electrics, they use plastic connections which can leak slightly. I would recommend getting a garden hose quick connect kit to cover the plastic threads and seal it with Teflon tape. This will allow the plastic threads to hold up for the long haul. However, since the unit is under warranty, you could contact AR directly to see what they have available to fix the issue. They can be reached at 866-235-5112

Adjustable Wand Issues
Would love this, but I have great difficulty with getting the adjustable wand to pull in and out for high turbo use. Now, the high setting will not push in at all. I hate to trash this system, but my concern is that a replacement wand will present me with the same issue. I am a small woman and I have difficulty with this, although I would say that now it is simply broken after less than a year's use as it will not push inward far enough. The motor churns on and off because of the wand. I have... more

Have Owned Many Other Washers, This Is Best One So Far
Customer service excellent. Volume of water to pressure a big deal.

Very reliable. Own three washers, are used heavily and all have held up very well. Much better value than other brands I have owned.

No Decision Yet!
I really can't give any opinion at this time. Winter has come very early this year. I did get a chance to use the power washer one time.

It was a shaky beginning with burps and coughs and all kinds of noises. After a while it calmed down and ran OK, but I'll hold off giving an opinion until the spring,

Used Twice. So Far, So Good.
Bought this in April 2011 and have used it twice. First time to clean mildew from a deck. Worked pretty well but I wish it had a bit more power.

Second time I cleaned screens, vinyl siding and small driveway all with great results. Only one minor complaint and that is with the user manual which is very sparse for information. I had to call AR North America to get clarification on how to get the detergent flow to operate. Customer service was very helpful in explaning the operation. more

Motor Burned Out After Several Uses
The unit stopped working completely (the motor burned out) after using a half a dozen times over a 3 month period! Don't buy this power washer...be wise and invest the extra dollars in a real washer (gas powered!)
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Unreliable, Low Quality, Durability
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
William,
Our records show you've had this unit for over 2 years. To get the longest service from your pressure washer, please be sure to store it where it won't freeze, and use a pump saver product over the winter (any brand will do).

To get the longest motor life, you also need to make sure you turn the motor completely off when you walk away from the unit. If you release the trigger to stop the water flow and leave it for more than 5 minutes, you also stop the flowing water from cooling the pump and motor and it will fail prematurely.

Surprisingly Effective
I purchased this unit to replace an old, but very reliable, Karcher unit. Initially, I thought I'd buy another Karcher, since I had such good luck with them (more than 20 years of regular use). However, when I went through the reviews (on this site and Amazon.com), it became clear that there were many more issues/complaints for Karcher as a brand, than AR, so I bought the AR. While the jury is still out, and I doubt it's reasonable to hope for the same lifespan as my old Karcher, I'm... more
Pros: Features, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Plastic Hose Connectors

Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Don,
It's not only the PSI that makes for effective cleaning; it's the volume of water, or gallons per minute (GPM) that the unit can push, and the size of the hole in the nozzle (the orifice) that concentrates the water.

Higher GPM or a smaller orifice size can make the spray seem more powerful on the same (or lower) rated PSI pump. Pumps are rated on a test bench, with nothing hooked up to them so the largest possible number can be posted- how the water is routed after the pump can also affect how much pressure comes out of the spray tip.

That's where the "Cleaning Units" rating can come in handy- it levels the PSI/GPM playing field so you can compare units based on performance.
