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

Good Product For The Price
Just used power washer for the first time. No problems with assembly.

I didn't experience any leaking problems from hose connection that has been reported by other users. Instructions are still vague about how to get cleaner flowing from tank.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Quiet
Cons: Power Cord Storage Needs To Be Larger

David,
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 click is the low pressure setting- it opens a valve in the tank so the rushing water can mix with the soap and be sprayed out the end of the wand. It won't work with the turbo nozzle.

Once you're done with the soap, twist the nozzle back towards the narrow setting until it clicks again, then spray for a minute to clear the soapy water out of the spray hose and you'll be ready to rinse.

It's a good idea to rinse the tank out when you're done- if soap dries in the tank it can clog up the feed tube.

Disappointed
Not as good as they make it to be. Very light and tips over easily. Hose connection is made of plastic and cheap. It was made to look stronger than what it is at home.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Durability, Low Quality
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert

Mark,
This is a light weight, consumer grade pressure washer. Several of the staff own and use this unit on a regular basis- the hose reel does make it a little top-heavy, but it stands up to regular household use.

Pressure washers do best when you pay out the hose, then move the unit. Trying to move the unit by pulling on the hose will not work as well.

Not Happy With Hose On New Pressure Washer
The manufacturers need to use better material on the pressure hose as it is very stiff and will kink if the operator is not careful the machine will tip over very easily- also so not so good.
Pros: Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Difficult To Use, Hose Is Very Stiff Gets Cat Tails In It Have To Keep Going Back A, Hose Is Stiif And Curls And Kinks A Real Pain
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Wally,
Brand new 1/4" hose has a mind of its own- you may want to try unspooling the hose and laying it out in the sun before you start setting up the rest of the unit. That will help it "relax" and not want to be so curly when it's time to start washing.

Once you've done this a few times it will be easier to handle.

Better Than Gas
AR Blue 1800 PSI Pressure Washer is a solid product but I think the features they've added to it are not as good as the unit itself. But once it was operating, it was pretty powerful and the jet nozzle is great for covering a lot of ground quickly. Very good for household chores. Overall, I was pleased with it's performance when operating correctly.

There were three negatives however as some of the features I felt did not function as advertised. The new pressure switch which is... more

Mark,
The Start/Stop should function on its own since tying the trigger open can be a safety hazard. You can try pulling the trigger & letting the water run for a bit before starting the motor- this will drive out any air in the pump and prevent vapor lock. If this doesn't help, please contact the folks at AR Bue Clean Tech Support, toll free, at 866-235-5112. They will be able to help troubleshoot or offer warranty assistance. Please be sure to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them.

If you look at the product page for the AR Blue Clean Surface Cleaner you will see a line in the Features that says "Adapter Part # PW3082750 Needed To Be Compatible With AR390". You can click on this link to order that AR Blue Clean Adaptor for AR390.

Turbo nozzles have a small disc with a hole in it that spins very fast under the pressure of the water. If the water supply has dirt or grit in it, it can jam up the spinning disc. You may want to add an inexpensive water filter to your garden hose to prevent dirt from getting through.

Hopefully this will make your pressure washing easier and more productive!

The Detergent Dispenser Quit Working After 10 Minutes
The washer was easy to set up. It worked great for the first 10 minutes, but then the detergent quit dispensing. I used the detergent I purchased from this site so I believe it should not have clogged the machine. There is no troubleshooting in the manual.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, Fast
Cons: Unreliable, Bad Instructions
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Gertrude,
Remember to turn the wand all the way to the low pressure/detergent setting each time you want to dispense soapy water.

The detergent should be fine, but there might have been some grit or debris in the water flow that's blocking the opening. You may want to try rinsing out the tank with fresh water and trying again.

If that doesn't fix it, please call the folks at AR, toll free, at 866-235-5112. The warranty will cover any repair or replacement needed. Be sure to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them- they will probably ask for it.

I will say that the instructions were less descriptive than I needed, but searched of the AR Blue website filled in the blanks for me.

Went To Electric After Multiple Gasoline Failures
I am a light user (small deck, patio, garage, lawn furniture). I went through four gasoline power washers with Kawasaki or Honda engines. I never abuse equipment and they all failed.

I decided to try an electric and so far the unit has performed well especially when you factor in the price/value to results. O.K.,the electic has less power which equates to more time. The plus of having it start EVERY TIME outweighs the cord hassle. For $200 the combination is hard to beat.

This pressure washer beats my old Karcher hands down in quality to the price. My only complaint is the rather flimsy plastic hose connector, but that is easy to upgrade.

I'd Never Recommend This Unit To Anyone
I'm going to go through what I don't like about this unit after using it one time.
The water inlet is a cast part and poorly designed to the point of not holding on the plastic water/hose attachment. Immediately, the connection was leaking. 2 sides of the casting are flat and allow the plastic connector become cock-eyed on the casting. Plus because the unit is top heavy, it tips over very easily and will inevitably break the water connection in no time at all.

Then there is the hose. ... more
Pros: Arrived Fast
Cons: Unreliable, Low Quality, Durability, Difficult To Use

Lee,
I'm sorry you're having problems with your pressure washer; I think I can help.

If the Turbo Nozzle and/or the spray wand are not operating properly, you can give the folks at AR a call, toll free at 866-235-5112 within 90 days and they'll be happy to replace it. Backflushing the turbo nozzle might also help get out any grit that is interfering with the spinner in the nozzle tip.

Because of it's compact size and weight, you will need to brace the unit with your foot and keep a hand on the carry handle when you're rolling the hose out and in- this is true for any of the small electric pressure washers. None of them will allow the user to pull the hose from a distance.

The AR390 earned its recommendation since several of our team members own this unit and use it on a regular basis. I checked to see how they handle power cord and nozzle storage. The most common method is to store the nozzles, wind up the hose, then coil the power cord around the carry handle & tuck the GFI connector through the carry handle so it doesn't flop around; it also helps keep that 3rd nozzle in place. This is also pretty typical for most consumer-grade pressure washers.

You can use this link to view our Return Policy; it's also at the bottom of our website under Customer Service.
