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 Useful
I have the AR390SS, which has all metal fittings except for the connection to the water source. It uses standard 1/4" NPT pressure fittings for the tips, so you can add to this with parts found pretty much anywhere. It is slower to use than a gas-powered unit, but it still has enough power to do what *I* need it to do. The soap delivery system works well for some things, but for my car I added a very nice MTM Foam Cannon, which fits the unit and works well with its GPM and PSI ratings.

Having Trouble
Soap dispensing system inoperable. Have the right soap, instructions say just turn the knob. Does not suck a drop of soap out of the dispenser. Nothing in the docs/troubleshooting address this issue. Will call the PWD guys and see what they say.
Pros: Quiet, Price
Cons: Bad Instructions, Soap dispenser not working yet.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
John,
I checked the Owner's Manual, and it doesn't really explain that soap will only be applied while using the black, 65° spray tip (it's flatter than the pointy black turbo nozzle). This tip sprays only at low pressure, and allows a siphon to form so the soap will be sucked out of the detergent tank into the water stream.

I would suggest turning the detergent knob to MIN when starting; once you see the soap flowing you should be able to turn it up if you need to.

If using the black tip doesn't let the unit apply soap, please give the folks at AR a call at 866-235-5112 so they can help you resolve the issue. Please also have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call AR.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

John,
PED customer service is 100% correct. Please make sure you are using the black nozzle that has "SOAP" in white letters on this side of it. If that doesn't start the detergent siphon then please call 1-866-235-5112.

Great Piece Of Equipment
I have a gas power washer currently before buying the AR Blue washer. The reason for buying this washer was because of convenience. It's light, easy to use, powerful, and for the price couldn't have done any better.

The instructions are thorough and easy to read. Set-up was also very straight forward. I recommend this washer to anyone who wants quality and convenience.

No Problems At All
Had this for about a year now and use it for washing our RV and cars while hooked up to a filtered, deionized water tank. So far I love it no problems at all.

An adjustable spray tip would be nice instead of changing tips for spray patterns.

Charles,
The really nice part about about this unit using interchangeable tips is that you can add an Adjustable Spray Tip if you'd like. There are a couple styles to choose from- one has multiple nozzles all on the same head, and the other style changes the spray just by rolling the nozzle back and forth.

Since your unit accepts quick connect nozzles you can also add 2nd Story and Turbo nozzles for additional cleaning tasks. You have the best of both worlds available to you.

Great To Have Something You Don't Have To Worry Whether It Will
Great unit, good power, reliable, only downfall is the same with all power washers. A better way to reel the hose up would be helpful.

Would buy again though. And would definitely recommend.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Price, Reliable
Cons: None of the above, better hose reel would be nice.

Laying the hose out in the sun a few times will help it uncurl- that should make it easier to work with, and also easier to put back onto the reel.

Great Delivery Time- Great Machine- Great Price
I ordered the AR 390SS on 10/25/16. It arrived on 10/27/16. Following the instructions it was fully assembled and ready to go in about 20 minutes.

I did some porch railings and about half my house in about 35 minutes. This thing is awesome!! Does a great job.

Easy to use and move around. A nice selection of tips. I am going to order the 36" wand.

I highly recommend this machine. I am 76 and have no difficulty at all using it.

Almost Perfect
After years of using a gasoline powered pressure washer, I admit I really like this machine. The unit is lightweight and very portable and as a result, I find myself using the machine routinely to wash the cars, garden tractors, trailers, etc. The gas unit only gets pulled out for the BIG jobs.

On the negative side, there have been many complaints about the black hose and reel. I live in the Northeast and have found unspooling and rewinding the hose to be problematic. Maybe on the rare 80... more

This is a great little washer for washing the grime off of the sandy and salty winter cars. The only problem we are having is with the hose kinking that appears to be permanent because the hose is plastic.

Harold,
If you can find a warm, sunny spot (not always easy to do in the winter, I grant you) it will help to lay the hose out straight and let it warm up before you use it. As you continue to use it will relax a bit as well.

Best $200 Washer Out There By A Mile
This is my third electric washer. I had a Karcher, one from the big orange box, and this AR. THIS THING IS AS WELL BUILT, POWERFUL, and well engineered as the Karcher which cost twice as much.

Get this one if 2000 PSI and no gas motor fits your needs.

I was truly blown away by the performance of this machine. Very consistent power throughout entire commercial job. Easy attachment, simple setup, and power.

This is the most powerful electric power washer I could find. I didn't want to maintain another gasoline engine for something I only anticipated using sporadically.

I also bought an 18 foot wand to clean my gutters which are 15 feet off the ground. It easily flushed out the pine needles and leaves. No shortage of pressure here.

We were looking for a good electric pressure washer to clean off the deck and some other areas around the property.

This unit does the job, but a little too much plastic for me. The hose reel, frame, and wheels could be a little stronger and it would really impress me.

An Ok Washer
A lot of features I like. However, the soap dispenser does not work. I followed the manufacturers instructions for making sure the detergent was dilute according to the instructions. Still does not work.

The right wheel cover fell off the first day and the nozzle holders don't work well.

Now the unit seems to not want to get up to pressure like it did right out of the box. Eventually it does though.

I would give it a C+ grade.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Fred,
Making sure the soap has been thinned to a watery consistency is a good start. Please make sure you're using the black soap tip- it opens a siphon to add the soap to the water stream.

The thing about a Siphon is that it needs to be started so it will work against gravity. When you first start using the soap tip you may want to try raising up the soap bucket so gravity helps move the soap solution through the hose.

Once the soapy solution starts spraying you'll be able to put the bucket back on the ground. Please make sure your pressure washer is getting enough water from your garden hose to maintain the pressure- a hose longer than 50 feet can starve the pump, especially if it's running up hill.

If you continue to have problems, please give the folks at AR a call at 866-235-5112 so they can help you troubleshoot further, or find Warranty Service near you. Please also have the serial number of your unit handy when you call them- they'll probably ask for it. If you also need a copy of your invoice just click on the My Account link at the top right corner of our website, and follow the prompts to print one out.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience.

Almost Perfect
I purchased this pressure washer to replace a Karcher that ceased working after limited use. This is a much better washer. I've already put it through the ringer, using it to pressure wash a fence, and have put way more hours on it than the Karcher. The fittings, hose, wand, spray tips, basically everything about it is better than the Karcher.

The only con I have been able to come up with is the dumb footplate that you stand on when winding up the hose. It's pretty useless instead of that... more

Nice But Has Some Quality Issues
Over all its worked good but has some quality issues. First thing I noticed was the hose crank handle is so cheap and flimsy it bends like its going to break off every time I use it, it will its just a matter of time..

I emailed the company with NO response ! The hose length is not as advertised !!! Says hose length is 30' Ft not even close.. Mine is under 25' Ft and the hose is cheap, holds coil memory and will kink ! Not happy with that at all !!! Hose is junk period !!

I checked your file, and we don't show an email from you- and our system automatically logs every contact. If it was AR that you emailed, you may get better results giving them a call directly at 866-235-5112. Please be sure to have the serial number of your unit handy when you call them.

I will be happy to check with the folks at AR about the hose length- 30 feet was the length they told us was included with this unit, but sometimes specs change and we don't get the word. We'll do the update right away if it has changed, and ask AR to get in touch with you directly if you were shipped the wrong hose.

1st Impression
You asked for a 1st impression. I haven't used it much, but initially I'm not happy with the power of the spray. I'm not happy with the clips that hold the nozzles to the unit for storage. Very loose and fall off. It's overall, fair.
Pros: Easy To Store, Price
Cons: Not very powerful
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Bob,
Thank you for your review. The pressure of the spray will be affected by the nozzle you use. The black soap nozzle is low pressure so detergent can be added to the water stream.

The green 25° nozzle is a nice fan spray that will take on many cleaning tasks. The 0° red tip is a very strong spray that is great for durable surfaces, but please be sure to test it first- it can damage wood and stucco.

Please also make sure enough water is getting to the pressure washer's pump. It should be hooked up to city water so there's enough volume and back-pressure for the pump to operate properly.

If these tips don't help, please give the folks at AR Blue Clean a call at 866-235-5112, and have the serial number of your pressure washer handy in case they ask for it.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any disappointment.

Out of the box cleaned a 14 x 40 deck non-stop, a 12 x 20 deck, and a 1800 sq ft. boat dock in one day.

It's as close to a gas high pressure washer you will find and half the price and light enough you can carry up and down steps with no problem.

Excellent Price / Performance
I purchased this unit to power wash my home, deck and garage. It was amazing: all the parts are contained on the unit, no separate hoses or cables, and it is portable with a handle and wheels.

I liked that it is the most powerful PSI (2,000) of the electric units I searched, and it performed very well over the week that I used it.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: None of the above

Great For General Homeowner Use
Very easy assembly, setup and use.

Plan to use it for cleaning patio pavers, deck and siding. It has done a good job on the pavers so far. I'd like it to be just a little more powerful to get the moss out between the pavers, but that's a gas-powered unit that costs $200-$300 more.

I think it's a solid unit at a very good price.

Better Off With A Nozzle On Your Hose
What a joke. Only good for cleaning a pre-cleaned car. No power at all.
Cons: No power
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
James,
I am sorry you're disappointed with the performance of your pressure washer- you should be getting a huge step up in cleaning performance over your garden hose, so something is up.

First of all, is the unit getting enough water? Your garden hose should be at least 5/8 inch diameter, and no longer than 50 feet long. You should be hooked up to city water, not a well, that can produce at least 2 gallons per minute. The filter screen inside the hose connection should be clear of grit and debris. Your high pressure hose should be completely extended to make sure there are no kinks.

If you are using an extension cord, is it a heavy enough gauge that the unit is getting all the power it needs? Are you using the correct nozzles? The black nozzle is low pressure so it can apply soap; the other nozzles should spray water at high pressure.

If all of these ducks are in a row and you're still not getting a high pressure spray, please give the folks at AR a call at 866-235-5112 so they can help you troubleshoot and/or replace your unit under their Factory Warranty. Please have the serial number of your unit handy when you call them- they will ask for it.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Used it only a couple of times, did what I expected it to, more or less. When I pushed it on hard stuff-dirt on 90 year old train wheels, didn't touch it, may have to get out the hand scrapper and lots of elbow grease.

That is assuming that the hose connection can be fixed. The company is in contact so I will see what comes from that. The hose connection at the washer broke off INSIDE the washer and there was no unusual stress put on it.

Best Pressure Washer I've Ever Used
We used the washer several times using the wand and the 10" patio cleaner. I was skeptical that the patio cleaner would work. Well, much to my surprise and pleasure the patio cleaner performs great.

So far the only thing that is a pain, which has been mentioned by others is the hose not reeling very good. Been able to work through that, ambient temperature was a little cool so hopefully it will get better when it warms up.

Good But No Cigar
Unit is okay. Power washer kind of swirls the pattern, which is good. The handle to rewind the hose is flimsy and is difficult to use without breaking it. Unit can tip over.

Hose connection leaks tons of water - poor design. Doesn't really seem much different than the 1300 PSI unit I was replacing.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Features
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
John,
You may find that a turn or two of Teflon pipe tape (available at grocery or hardware stores, usually under $1) on the hose connections will cut the leaking to a minimum.

Your pressure washer is covered by the 1 year Factory Warranty until 3/17/2018. The folks at AR will be happy to help you resolve any issues with your pressure washer, just give them a call at 866-235-5112. Please have the serial number of your unit handy when you call, they will ask for it.

If you need a copy of your invoice, just click on My Account at the top right corner of our website and follow the prompts to print one out.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Awesome Pressure Washer
The power washer works great and PWD was easy to work with. They had it to me within a few days. It is incredibly easy to assemble and operate.

The only complaint I have, which is very minor, is the hose is much to stiff for the roller. You can't wind up the hose using the handle or unwind by simply pulling it. You have to grab the side of the roller and manually wind and unwind.

Other than that, great power washer for a great price.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Easy To Store, Price
Cons: hose roller isn't the best for the hose

Doug,
I believe you will find that as the weather warms up the hose will become more pliable and easy to handle. If you have a sunny day to lay the hose out flat for a bit it will help relax the curves and make it easier to get on the reel.

Was very easy to set up and use this pressure washer, though two screws were missing for non-essential attachments and AR mailed five out to me.

The pressure washer worked very well and seemed like better than 2000 psi. Would not recommend keeping extra nozzles on clips on PW as they easily fall off.

Deck Revival
Bought the Blue Clean pressure washer four weeks ago, have returned our picnic table from old and grey to like new.

The deck was stained from years of leaves and algae to a greenish covering which was unrecognizable as wood to like new. The fence and lattice work also is totally clean.

The driveway looks great, starting on the house next. We just bought the house and have added thousands to the value.

This pressure washer has several convenient features. Hose reel, convenient power cord storage.

Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Frank,
I'm sorry you're disappointed in the performance of your pressure washer- 2000 PSI should be plenty to clean a wood deck, in fact you need to be careful you don't raise the grain and damage the wood.

A couple things you may want to check to make sure you're getting the best out of your machine. First, make sure you have enough water getting to the pump- 2 GPM or more out of a city water tap is ideal, along with using a garden hose that is at least 5/8" in diameter and less than 100 feet long.

Please also check the screen between the pressure washer and garden hose- if there is debris or grit clogging it the pump may not be getting enough water.

If you're using an extension cord, please make sure that the cord is a thick enough gauge to get enough electricity to the unit so you are running at full power.

For deck cleaning you will want to use the 25° (green) tip. A Sprayglide Roller would help you keep the tip a consistent distance from the wood. If you want a more concentrated spray you should be able to pick up a 15° (yellow) tip at a local hardware store (a 3 orifice would be good), but please be careful- it can damage wood.

If none of these ideas help, then please call the AR folks directly at 866-235-5112. They will be able to make sure your unit is operating properly. Please have the serial number of the pressure washer handy if you do call them- they will probably ask for it.

Works Well But Could Be Improved
Washer was easy to assemble and works well overall. The hose reel needs to be improved as it is difficult to use and the crank does not seem very sturdy.

Also the wand holder keeps coming off when I pull the wand out. However the rest of the washer seems to work well and does a good job.

If you expect it to perform like a quality gas powered washer you will be disappointed. For an easy to use electric unit I thought it was great.

Cons: None of the above

What A Waste
This is a cheaply made unit. It doesn't work any better than the cheapest one you can buy at WalMart. It saved me no time versus the other lower power electrics I have used in the past. I am not impressed.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Norman,
I apologize for the feelings you have on the unit. However, with an electric unit, you are limited to the 15 amps a standard household outlet can supply. With that in mind, the motor 15 amps can power, will not be able to drive a pump any larger than 2000 PSI. All of your consumer grade electric units wont exceed 2000 PSI. In order to have an electric unit with higher PSI, you would need to have a larger motor that could not be ran off a standard household outlet.

After reading all the reviews on all the different pressure washers, i liked everything that was said about the ar390ss, the only real complaint people had was the stiff pressure hose, not very flexible.

After using the ar390ss i found that the best way to use it is to remove the hose from the reel and lay it out flat then hook it up, works for me. The washer does everything i expected it to do, i would buy it again, great buy for all the features. Very happy.

Beware ...owner's Manual
My preference is for a powerful electric washer for occasional home use. The AR, after on-line review, appeared the best for me. Especially of interest is a deck washer attachment. The optional deck washer description had an easily overlooked fine print indicating that an extra cost adapter was necessary. The person who took my phone order ought to have mentioned there was the adapter issue.

It wasn't until I received the unit and deck cleaner that I couldn't figure how to attach. A call to... more

Frustrated By Lack Of Service
New AR390SS, fresh out of the box, GFI trips about every third time the pump is cycled on. Called customer service line got a machine offering to take a message. No return call yet, it's still the same day but it's Friday and they'll be closing in an hour. Very frustrating.

Totally Awesome Except For One Little Issue.
I bought this unit to replace a smaller Karcher unit that lasted only 2 years. Did some research and chose this unit based on the reviews from this site. I could not be happier with every aspect of this piece of equipment except for the trigger on the handle. It's just a little flimsy and bends under pressure, side to side only, as I've been using it.

The over all build and performance is far superior to the Karcher unit I just replaced and I feel this unit will last a long time, based on... more

Initial Unpacking
I ordered the AR390SS as a Christmas gift for a friend (he burned out his last pressure washer this past summer).

The box(s) showed no apparent damage, however, when we unpacked it there was some minor damage to the machine.

* One of the 'hubcaps' was loose in the box and the plastic was broken. (we glued it back on)

*) One of the plastic 'holders' for the tips was busted. Since this is part of the body of the machine, there is nothing we can do about this.

Since it is currently... more

No, you need to use the black low pressure tip, to create a suction, and dispense detergent. This holds true on all of the units in the industry.

Works Well, But Is Not Very Powerful.
I just used it yesterday and was pleased with the unit. I live in Houston and was removing some mildew and mold that developed on my siding, concrete areas, and gutters over the past 2 years.

I could remove them but I had to get under 2 inches away to be effective. I would have thought this unit would be stronger and even remove paint but that is not the case.

I like the unit but offer this comment to others.

I received a call from AR today. They are sending some parts to try to remedy my situation. They are clearly interested in supporting their customers, and there product.

I still have an unexplained issue with the pressure washer but I feel well supported by both AR and Pressure Washers Direct. They are both showing me very good customer service. I'm confident that I will be taken care of.

Because of the support I've received I can recommend the product.

Bought this item on Black Friday and being in Michigan I have Not used it yet.

A few observations after unboxing:
1) The Pressure hose is a bit stiff.
2) Easy to assemble
3) I wish the trigger end of the pressure hose had a standard 1/4 inch quick connect so you could add more hose if needed.
4) With the hose reel on top the unit is a bit tipsy.

Finally A Pressure Washer That Works!
I have had a number of pressure washers for cleaning my decks and patios over the years. I purchased a name brand unit less than a year ago with a patio cleaner and hose reel and found it to be wanting. The hose was so stiff, it was difficult to role up for storage or to use, and the patio cleaner quit working the first time I used it. The second time I took it out, it blew up. The manufacturer told me to return to the store for a refund which I did. I then did a little more research and found... more

Do Not Buy Adaptors
I purchased the patio cleaner and the extender wand with this machine. Neither of these fit the machine. Several phone calls later I am still waiting for some attachments to make these work. The website does not give you complete information. I am not happy with all of the hassle this purchase has caused.

Product Expert
Debra,
I apologize for the issues you had. However it is very clearly stated on our website under the surface cleaner that the adapter is needed with the AR390SS. It states on the features page of the surface cleaner.

Adapter Part # PW3082750 Needed For AR390 (sold separately)
•Adaptor is needed for AR390SS and AR383SS units


Also, since you were our customer and may have missed that on the surface cleaner page, we already took the liberty and sent you the adapter free of charge. I apologize you had to wait, but it is coming for free.

I purchased the AR390SS to replace a SnapOn power washer I purchased from Costco. The SnapOn failed after about four or five uses. The pressure pump seal failed and it would not stop leaking even after taking it apart. Took a chance on the AR390SS. It cost less, was better engineered, better quality & more convenient to use.

I used it for the first time last on a 50' sail boat deck. What a pleasure! Ran it about four hours without a problem. I don't use a pressure washer very often so... more

Ar390ss Works Great Great Value!
Great performance, light-weight and easy to use. Two issues that make me treat this unit with more "care" than the worn-out Karcher it replaces:

1) The hose from the unit to the spray-gun is made from a stiff plastic that tangles easily and is hard to manage as you move around, and with the top reel, I am concerned that the unit may get tipped over and break the plastic hose connector. Extension not yet available per AR Blue customer support.

Girl's Pressure Washer Does A Boy's Job
I am a woman in my mid 50's that lives alone. My home is a ranch on several acres which I take care of myself. I have my father's huge Honda compressor combo pressure washer....a beast of a gas machine. It's on wheels but weighs a ton.

I wanted a way to clean my decks without dragging the beast up stairs. This pressure washer is light, easy to move and does the job.

Highly recommend!

Very Disappointed
First time I used it the pressure didn't seem all that great, but I accepted that it was likely the limitations of an electric powered washer. It would not draw cleaning solution from the tank. I put it away and have simply been too busy to address that issue.

Today I used it for the second time....and after about 10 minutes of use it literally burned up. Smoke was pouring from it and it died. Waste of money. Wish I had mine back so I could buy a gas powered one from Home Depot or Lowe's.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Tony,
This unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty, so please give the folks at AR a call, toll free, at 866-235-5112 before your warranty expires on 3/10/2016. You will want to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call so they can set up your claim and send you a replacement.

A 2000 PSI machine, either gas or electric, has plenty of power for cleaning jobs around the house. Electric machines depend on water running through them to keep them cool, so if you walk away from the unit for more than one minute without turning it off, it will overheat.

Large jobs like cleaning siding should be broken into segments to let an electric unit cool off, but you certainly should have gotten more than 10 minutes of use. Please make sure you are hooked up to city water that provides enough water volume to keep the pump cool.

You must have the black nozzle attached in order to draw soap from the tank, and the suction straw in the tank must be connected properly. Please see instructions on Page 11 of your Owner's Manual.

Other customers have reported excellent results with their AR390SS units, so if you've set it up according to the Owner's Manual your replacement unit should serve you well.

Tony,
I am very sorry to hear about the issue you had with your AR390ss. I want to reiterate the one year bumper to bumper warranty you have with your Blue Clean Pressure Washer. Please call 1-866-235-5112 to speak with either Tom or myself and after a quick conversation we will have a replacement machine shipped out today. We have a saying here at AR Blue Clean and that is simply "Happy Customers". Please let us prove that to you.

Initial Problem, Resolved, Great Product.
Initially the pressure washer surged on and off with the red (0-degree) nozzle. After reading the manual thoroughly I thought perhaps cleaning it with the nozzle cleaning tool would correct the problem, no change, it was in fact useless. Still thinking that not enough water was getting through the nozzle (the other nozzles worked fine) I tried blowing through it with an air compressor, and that did it.

It has all the tips on hand and conveniently located on the machine. The electric cord and the high pressure hose and are long enough for any job big or small.

Not Super Powerful, But Good Overall.
I put it together and used it to give my boat a thorough cleaning this weekend. I like that it's quiet and not so powerful that you do damage, but the other edge of that sword is that there are some times when it takes a long time because you really have to get right up to within an inch of the surface to clean the dirt off. I guess I'd rather have the piece of mind that I won't ruin the surface, but it does take a while if you have "deep" cleaning to do...

Get's the job done, is very strong and reliable. That being said, there are 2 smaller issues with the design. The gun is a bit short, so your back hurts after a while. I'll see if I buy some kind of extension.

The second issue that I have is that you can't lock the gun when cleaning, which means that you have to squeeze the handle all the time. I suppose it is a safety issue, but I would really like some kind of lock that simply keeps it going without me having to squeeze the handle. These... more

I have had a Honda powered Karcher for the last 12 years primarily for home use. Concrete, fencing, siding, etc. When it finally needed to be put to bed, I opted for taking a chance on the convenience of electric power.

Best move I could have made. This little machine has plenty of power, lightweight, with no leak issues so far.

Best part is that it starts every time I plug it in :)

Awesome!
My prior pressure washer was a Husky which I really liked. But it got to the point where I needed a new system. After reading reviews, I decided to spend a few dollars more (than the competition) to get the AR 390SS.

Now, honestly, I have never used a gas unit...just electric. But, after spending an afternoon with this one, all I can say is I wish I had purchased it a long time ago! I really like it!

This is the first time I've owned a power washer and wasn't sure what to expect. I did a lot of research to find AR Blue Clean to be best reviewed. It is easy to use and very powerful, so powerful that it took off some of the paint on my garage door frame ... oops. It also took off some of paint on my cast iron outdoor table. I need to be more careful. The hose is a little stiff and has a lot of spring back but other than that, this is a great product so far.

Review Of Ar Blue Clean Supreme 2000
I purchased this pressure washer for doing light jobs around the house (washing vehicles, spot stain removal on concrete gagrage sidewalk) and although I have only used this pressure washer on a few occassions to date it has has proformed as expected.

Attachment assemble easily, brass over plastic threaded connections make a big difference by helping to reduce the risk of cross threading.

The chemical feed tank seems to pickup the cleaning solutions without any problem and is adjustable... more

Great Product
I purchased this pressure washer in hopes that it would take care of the things I needed to do around the house. It works great. I've done both of my decks and results are awesome.

I didn't want the hassle of a gas powered pressure washer with worrying about fuel and oil and cranking it up and cleaning the carburetor. So this is just what I was looking for.

The only complaint that I have with this unit is the hose and hose reel. Doesn't work exactly how you would expect and the hose is... more

Underpowered
Received as promised. Everything works fine. However, the pressure seems under powered. Cleans patio furniture fine, but of limited help on patio pavers.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Keith,
The most effective tool for cleaning pavers will the the Turbo Nozzle that came with your pressure washer. It concentrates the spray and rotates it so it gets into all the little nooks and crannies of the pavers and agitates the dirt right out.

The Turbo is very powerful, so please test it first in an inconspicuous area to get the feel of how far away you need to be so you don't etch the surface of the paver.

A Surface Cleaner will focus the water onto the pavers and give you a faster, smoother finish. Since you have one of the sturdy SS models you will also need the PW3082750 adaptor to hook up the surface cleaner to your unit.

Just What I Need
It didn't seem right to always borrow a friend's gasoline powered pressure washer, so I bought the AR390SS for myself. This first month of ownership I have cleaned two long exposed aggregate sidewalks, a brick porch and part of an exposed aggregate driveway. Although the machine is a little bit slower than my friend's gas model, the setup and put-away time is much less and not having to deal with an internal combustion engine is a real plus.

There have been absolutely no glitches with this... more

Very Good Machine
Great pressure washer, like the long hose between the machine and the handle. Didn't want a washer with too much pressure as I use it to wash the rubber roof of the RV. It is perfect for the job, the hose is long enough to reach the top of the RV and maneuver around while cleaning.

Didn't realize that the tip has to be changed to apply cleaning solution which is a bit inconvenient, especially when you forget to bring the tips up the ladder with you..

Does A Great Job!
I had another electric washer that just wasn't making the grade. I had to replace the high pressure wand and when the second wand stopped working I knew it was time for a new washer. I did some research and decided to go with the Blue Clean washer. I am very pleased with the choice of three nozzles and the metal wand.

I also like the hose reel and the cord storage. The machine could be a little heavier or have a wider base because it tends to tip when pull hose off the cord reel. This can be... more

Great Machine
Rather than pay someone as much as $1500 to power wash my deck and privacy fence, I decided to buy a washer and do it myself. This machine was easy to use and perfect for the job.

The "power" nozzle instantly stripped away 15 years of dirt, mold, and oxidation. I did have to contact the manufacturer to get a new plug, but there was limited delay and this fixed the problem.

In fact pretty easy to use.

As I mentioned in previous review, I gave this as a Chirstmas-gift to a friend. Finally, it is warm enough in Vermont to actually USE it. Yesterday, he asked me over to his place to 'christen' his new power-washer. We removed nearly everything from the garage and spread it out on the lawn. For the next 2-3 hours, the AR390SS was running. We washed riding-mowers, trash-cans, gas-grilles... even the entire floor of the garage which had at least 1/4 inch of crud from the winter.

Thank you for the pressure washer recommendation. I ordered it from you the same day, and it arrived when scheduled.

It's a work horse and easily cleans our patio, outdoor play equipment, eaves, and everything else. It's sturdy too.

Heat build-up is the weak spot with electric pressure washers. For best performance we recommend taking a break to let the unit cool off periodically, especially in hot weather- it's good for the pressure washer as well as the person doing the washing!

Takes Too Long To Bleed Air Out
Works good but it takes 20 min are more to bleed air out of washer when I first go to use it. Right now not pleased.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Randy,
You are correct- 20 minutes is far too long to remove the air from the pump; it should only take a minute to let the water flow through and drive out any air, maybe 2 minutes- but not more than that.

Please make sure you have enough water getting to the pump- if it's starved for water it would sound like there's air in the pump. You should have at least a 5/8" hose, no longer than 50 feet, hooked up to a city water supply that puts out at least 2 gallons per minute. If you are running off a well it may not be putting out enough water.

Also check to make sure the inlet filter where the garden hose attaches is clear- if it's blocked it will limit the water flow (page 5 in your Owner's Manual).

If these tips don't help please give the folks at AR a call at 866-235-5112 to see if your unit needs to be repaired or replaced under their 1 year Factory Warranty. Please have the serial number if your unit handy if you call them; they will need it to set up your claim. If you need a copy of your invoice just click on "My Account" in the upper right corner of our website and follow the prompts to print one out.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience.

I purchased a flat surface attachment with the idea that it would help me clean my iPay deck, but unfortunately there is no way to attach it with the parts they included...not happy to have wasted $30 .
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert

James,
You haven't wasted your money. In the Features for the Surface Cleaner it says "Adapter Part # PW3082750 Needed For AR390 (sold separately). Adaptor is also needed for AR390SS and AR383SS units."

Since you purchased an AR390SS, you will need the PW3082750 Adapter in order to use the surface cleaner with your pressure washer.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Good Working Unit Other Than Footpeg
Overall it is a very good washer. I was never a fan of the reel type hose and am still not. The unit wants to tip over when unraveling the hose. More weight at the base of the unit would help but this of course makes the unit harder to handle.

There is a foot peg at the base on the backside of the unit but maybe because I am left handed and working from the front side I have no access to this peg. Maybe the engineers could design a foot peg for the front and this problem would be... more

I ordered this to clean my driveway and patio which are made of brick pavers. It took the dirt and mildew off all of it without any chemicals!

I was so happy with this performance that I used it on my wood dock and boathouse. These had not been cleaned in a few years. The dock was pretty green with algae and the boathouse was loaded with spider webs and mildew. Water pressure alone took most of it off. Only need to apply some bleach to the building and it will be a done deal.

Randy,
We are happy to help! You may want to try washing your car or outdoor furniture before really cold weather sets in, just to build your confidence in the replacement unit.

Please also be sure to use a Pump Saver product (any brand will work) when you store the pressure washer for the winter, and don't let it freeze. That way you'll get the best performance possible come Spring.

Your Owner's Manual will have detailed instructions on how to prep and store your pressure washer properly to keep the warranty intact.

Over the last 25 years or so, I've owned a number of electric pressure washers and this is the best so far. I know, I know, the technology is constantly improving, so the newer ones should be better, but that's not been the case.

Great Product/value
I bought it to clean the brick pathways around my house that were buried under 15+ years of algae/moss. The AR390SS left them looking like they had just been laid in the ground. Had to do a few passes in some areas, but for the price, this was a great deal.

I did a fair amount of research and the AR390SS was highly rated (and Pressure Washers Direct was lowest price). I can't compare it to others, since I don't do a whole lot of power washing, but I can definitely recommend this machine.

Exactly What I Need
I ordered this so that I would not have to drag my gas powered unit to jobs where it was likely to be too much.

The AR390SS is light, powerful enough to handle nearly anything I ask. Because it can be used anywhere, it is used on many thing that would be scraped or somehow manually cleaned before. It has taken the job of cleaning encrusted oyster cages from hours of grunge to minutes of effortless cleaning. Does a better job with no worry of cage damage.

Easy to assemble and it fits the bill. I think I need more PSI to do the work. I'm cleaning paver stones( a big area) and I'm used to probably 3k or 4k PSI.

Brian,
You might want to try the AR Blue Clean Patio Cleaner. It is designed to clean fairly flat surfaces quickly. The spinning arm has jets that focus the high pressure spray directly on the surface, leaving a smoother finish than a spray nozzle will.

You don't need to push down on the Surface Cleaner; it 'hovers' over the surface on the powerful spray.

Since you have an AR390SS you would also need to order the AR Blue Clean PW3082750 Adapter to attach the Surface Cleaner to your unit.

Purchased an electric power washer for jobs not requiring the blast of my 3200 psi gas washer. This unit is very easy to move around and set up versus my big brute. Does a remarkable job cleaning brick walkways and patios. Removing the grime off exterior walls was easy, too. There is always the danger of blowing out mortar or damaging siding with the hi pressure washer. This unit works perfectly.

Ordered the pressure washer on recommendations from my brother who has a AR washer. I'm very pleased with my purchase, the washer is of good quality construction and has very good pressure.

It came with good assortment of nozzles but could have better storage for the nozzles on the unit.

The Worst Power Washer I Ever Bought In My Life
The worst power washer I ever bought in my life. It's nothing but a total piece of garbage you use it more than three or four times everything on it leaks and then they won't take it back because I had it over 30 days total BS.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert

Chester,
This unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty through AR, so you are covered until 2/24/2017! Please give the folks at AR a call, toll free, at 866-235-5112. They will be happy to help you.

Please be sure to have the serial number if your pressure washer handy when you call them. If you need a copy of your invoice just click on My Account in the upper right corner of our website and follow the prompts to print one out.

I checked your account and I don't see where you've contacted us directly. We would have been happy to explain that the Pressure Washers Direct Return Policy limits folks who have changed their minds and want to return a new item to 30 days; but everything we sell has a Factory Warranty on it from the manufacturer to help our customers.

If it's your garden hose connection that's leaking, a new hose gasket (about a quarter at a hardware or grocery store) and a couple wraps of Teflon pipe tape (about a dollar) will stop the leaks. If it's the high pressure attachments that are leaking the folks at AR will have safe solutions for you.

Chester,
The leaking you reported in not a common occurrence with any of our machines. I am guessing that it could be a very simple fix. Please call 1-866-235-5112 and ask for Tom or James and one of us will take care of this for you. We will assess the issue and either send you a replacement part or replace the entire machine under your one year bumper to bumper warranty. No need to worry, we have you covered.

Andrew,
This unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty, so your machine is covered until 2/27/17. Please give the folks at AR a call before that date, toll free, at 866-235-5112. Please also have the serial number of your unit handy when you call so they can set up your claim.

If you're going through Consumer units that quickly you may want to invest in a Commercial Electric Pressure Washer. Click on Select Style to filter for cold water units. The heavier duty components will stand up to extended use and should make the additional cost a practical investment.

You will also want to check to make sure you have enough water getting to the pump (a well usually won't provide enough water volume, causing pumps to fail prematurely) and that you are following the directions in the Owner's Manual and not letting the unit run while you walk away to do something else. Pro level units usually come with better quality hoses that are more flexible and durable as well.

Great Pressure Washer For Everyday Joe
Bought this to do household weekend chores. Started with house siding. Very good and fast so continued to front porch concrete. I was impressed so decided to do back patio. What the heck, do the shed too.

All in all it ran flawless for few hours, cleaned very well after experimenting with various nozzles. Winterized it for now but looking forward to Spring to do the cars.

Glad I bought this larger washer as it handled all these tasks with ease.

This Is A Good Machine
I purchased the AR Blue Clean Supreme two weeks ago. Its primarily purpose will be washing my pool filters, which I'd been washing at a car wash. It took around $8 to clean two sets of filters.

Since our yard and pool is surrounded by oaks--big ones--things get a bit pricey. I clean every week (lot of work). Washing filters at home will also save time.

The pressure washer did a great job and I'm quite satisfied. 2000 PSI is more than enough for my purpose. At some point I'll pressure... more

Happy With It
Although I've used it only three times so far, I was pleased with how it worked, and especially the brass fittings and how easily it packed up after using it. It also rolls very well even on uneven surfaces.

I had a Karcher electric previously and the pressure hose and electric cable were loose and not easy to store. Admittedly, it was an older machine and things have changed.

But, I'm happy with this unit.

I've only used it once, but on about a 2 to 4 hour job of pressure washing my composite deck. It worked like a champ and seems easy to care for.

One thing to note - plan on storing it indoors or in a heated garage, since there is water that really can't be drained (in the inner-workings of the motor, etc.).

I finally decided to buy a pressure washer to clean my wood deck, concrete patio, concrete driveway, and my sidewalk.

I debated between gas and electric, fearing that electric would not provide enough power. Not to worry. This electric pressure washer easily and quickly cleans off 15 years of dirt and grime from concrete in no time at all.

Easy to operate, no water leaks, very quiet motor.

Margaret,
I apologize for the issues you are having with the unit. AR is one of the best consumer grade units available and it is not normal to hear these issues. However, they are also the best manufacture to work with. They should be sending you a brand new unit along with a prepaid label to send the defective one back. Any questions or concerns, give us a call directly at 800-710-7499. Thanks

Hi Margaret,

The lack of water flow may be caused by the garden hose adapter not fully connected. The blue/black adapter attached to the garden hose has a check valve. No water will flow through this adapter until the clear adapter is fully engaged into the blue sleeve.

Arrived quickly, easy assembly, works great! More powerful than my previous electrics and has already lasted 3 times longer at about twelve hours of use in three sessions cleaning concrete pavers and block walls. I am very happy with this machine. Two minor items: the turbo nozzle does not always start spinning on the first trigger squeeze and I could do without the hose reel. It's also quieter than the other washers I have owned. Hope it lasts a long time!

Fun To Use
It's a nice power washer. I read many of the reviews prior to purchase- these were very helpful.

The hose is stiff and stays in the helical form when uncoiled. I didn't have the time to unroll it completely and let it sit in the sun for an hour, as suggested. Although the manual provides information on assembly, there is nothing on its use. I had to read this information on the website or view the video, For example, it wasn't obvious where I was to store the nozzles.

Al,
The Features for this unit say "Adaptor PW3082750 (sold separately) needed to use AR accessories". This is because it's needed for accessories (things that are purchased after the sale) like the .AR Blue Clean Surface Cleaner that currently retails for $29.99.

Very Nice
This pressure washer is full of features and well designed. However, after one use the PW is making a screeching noise when handle is released.

It doesn't seem to affect the operation yet. Although when doing a lot of power washing it does get annoying.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Fast
Cons: Bad Instructions, Noisy

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience.

Great For Smaller Jobs Around The Yard
I had been borrowing neighbors' power washers to do smaller jobs around the outside. This is perfect for doing garbage cans, litter pans, concrete patio and sidewalks and the like.

Its compact foot print doesn't take up very much room in the garage and the reel for the water hose, clips for the power cord, caddy for the wand and especially the on board storage for the different styles of tips is genius. No more pawing fruitlessly though stuffed "junk" drawers to switch them.

More convenient than gas. At 2000PSi has enough power for around the home jobs. Cleaned stone from my patio with no more effort than my old gas model that always took lots of maintenance. I don't miss the pull cord either.

We had a heavy motorized washer that was difficult for me to handle. All the mixing of fuel and pulling cord to start. Just too much for a woman at age 75.

"I just love this machine. Just the fact that I don't have to pull a cord to start it is a pleasure to me. And yes the pressure hose is a little stiff but most pressure hoses are. The trigger on the gun could be a bit more strong, so it would not wobble right and left. I will be careful with it."

Noisy Motor-junk
Very disappointed with this noisy pump.. Tip holder junk, nozzle keeps falling not holding. I own several electric washers to clean my swimming pool-back yard for the advertise price and quality not worth the price. I do not recommended for this price. Writing this review so other potential buyer will not make same mistake that I did.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Pepito,
I apologize for the issues and concerns you have. One note is the pump on the AR is a bit higher quality than the normal consumer grade wobble pumps typically found on most consumer grade units.

This may cause it to be a bit noisier than other brands you are familiar with. Also, I will get your concerns over to the team at AR so your opinion can be heard.

Great Mobile Little Unit
Bought this for a project at a friend's house and my freind hasn't let me take it back home yet. Cleaning everything... decking, railings, stonework, teak furniture that had grayed out from the weather. Washed it down to bare wood again and ready for oil. Will look brand new when finished.

This unit paid for itself on the first job. It would have taken hours to sand the wood furniture in prep for oil. My friend will probably purchase his own unit to have on-site all the time. Thank you for... more
