AR Blue Clean AR390SS 2000 PSI Cold Water Electric Pressure Washer

When talking about cold water electric pressure washers, the name AR Blue Clean AR390SS cannot be left out. In the pressure washing industry, Annovi Reverberi (AR) is a name that denotes quality. The company has a fantastic reputation for producing quality high pressure pumps. When it comes to residential power washers, a number of their products such as the AR112, AR116, AR118, and the AR383 have received very positive feedback from many homeowners. Now let’s take a look at the AR390SS pressure washer in more detail.

As mentioned above, the original Blue Clean washers have received mostly very positive feedback. The AR Blue Clean S-Line pressure washers have some improvements over the previous models. With upgraded pump and motor, they should last several years over the cheaper ones. The AR Blue Clean AR390SS is a high end model in the new S-Line. Powered by a 120V 60Hz universal copper motor, it is capable of delivering 1.4 gallons per minute at 2000 PSI. The features seem pretty similar to the AR383, the best selling electric pressure washers on Amazon.com with almost 2000 reviews at this time of writing. But given the upgrades, you will get a better machine.

With 2000 PSI and 1.4 GPM of flow, it is capable of tackling many common outdoor cleaning chores. For an electric power washer. 2000 PSI is definitely on the strong side. Electric powered units are usually available in lower pressure ranges. Many Amazon’s customers have been pleased with its cleaning power. It is certainly not as powerful as a medium duty machine with 5000 cleaning unit. Furthermore, it only offers 1.4 GPM flow rate. However, based on the customer feedback, it does a good job of removing dirt and grime from sidewalks, decks, and driveways.

The AR390SS comes with a a nickel pro-style lance with a number of nozzle attachments. The package includes a rotary turbo nozzle for high impact cleaning and three quick connect nozzles for less-intense cleaning. There are 0° pencil spray nozzle, 25° fan spray nozzle, and low pressure soap nozzle. The 25° angle quick connect nozzle is ideal for cleaning windows. This model is equipped with a detergent tank for mixing in cleaning liquid. Use the soap nozzle when applying detergent. Located on the front of the machine is a knob that enables you to adjust the detergent concentration.

Another thing you will appreciate about this consumer unit is the built-in hose reel that makes the unit easy to pack up and store. The hose winding mechanism includes a handle to make rolling up the 25′ hose onto the reel easy.The 35′ power cord can also be rolled up on the unit. There are L-shaped tabs on the right side of the machine to keep the cord tidy during use and storage. The features do not stop there. All the accessories can also be stored on the unit when not in use.

The new aluminum swivel garden hose adapter, gun holster and the larger cord storage are some features that set it apart from the original Blue Clean washers. Of course, the basic principles remain. This unit operates with TSS auto start feature. The pump does not run unless you squeeze the trigger. To prevent the trigger from accidentally engaging when not in use, the spray gun also comes equipped with a trigger lock button. This pressure washer is also provided with a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) to protect you from electrical shocks.

Every product has its own pros and cons. One complaint that has been made about the AR390SS relates to its high pressure hose. Reportedly, it is stiff that makes it hard to reel in or out. It could be better if it used a better material. Pulling out the hose from the reel can cause the unit to tip over. Other than that, there are no many bad things to say about this power washer.

As of this writing, Amazon reviewers give the AR390SS 4.3 stars out of 27 reviews. Many reviewers have been impressed with the overall performance of the pressure washer. Users have also found that this unit makes very little noise. Although it is not the most affordable electric pressure washer on the market, its quality design and all the upgrades justify its price.

The AR Blue Clean AR390SS is not completely flawless. But if you need a powerful, quiet electric pressure washer, then based on the customer feedback it is the right product for you. The reviewers have reported the 2000 PSI model to be better engineered, better quality and more convenient to use than its predecessors.
