Review Of The PowerStroke PS80519 2200 PSI Gas Pressure Washer

Powerstroke PS80519 2200 PSI Gas Pressure Washer

Among other choices available out there, the Powerstroke PS80519 can be a good solution for those who need to get a little gas pressure washer which is easy to maneuver. At 55 lb, it is lightweight enough for a gas unit. The 7 in. never flat wheels make it ideal for portability. In this review you will find information regarding the main features of this compact gas power washer, along with some advantages and disadvantages.

For car washing and other small cleaning jobs, an electric model should work for you. They are also an ideal choice for indoor cleaning. But, for some of us, gas is the way to go when it comes to power washing. Featuring 2,200 max PSI and 2.0 max GPM, it definitely is more powerful than many electric models out there. If you have been using an electric powered with a lower CU to do exterior cleaning around the house, you will find that it can get the job done faster.

Generally, sidewalks, stairs, fencing, deck, and garage door are all candicates for medium duty (2000-2800 PSI) pressure washers. They are not powerful enough for exterior paint prep but still provide the power you need to clean your concrete driveway. The lack of electric cord is also another plus point of gas powered units. They will give you greater mobility since there is no need to be close to a power outlet.

The pressure is not adjustable but there are three different nozzles that come with the Powerstroke PS80519. They can help adjust and target the pressure. You can use the green 25 degrees high pressure nozzle to clean concrete, brick, and masonry. It is the most powerful and very targeted. The 40 degrees white nozzle provides a broader spray. It is suited for siding, gutters, fencing, patio, and lawn equipment.

The PS80519 is designed for use with pressure washer detergents. There are times when the use of chemicals is needed for a higher quality result. The blue low pressure soap nozzle is used to apply detergent. The application of detergents is done through a downstream chemical injection system. Chemical is introduced to the water flow after it leaves the pump so no harsh chemicals are ran through the pump.

Designed for residential use, the PowerStroke PS80519 is powered by a small 4-cycle 140cc OHV engine. No need to mix oil with gas. It uses 4-stroke engine lubricant (SAE 30 or SAE 10W30) to operate. The fuel tank has a maximum capacity of 0.21 gal. Starting the engine is accomplished by pulling the rope. The medium consumer gas unit is cold water. If the surface you are cleaning is mixed with oil or grease, a cold water power washer probably will not cut it.

Powerstroke PS80519 - What is in the box

When shopping for a power washer it is important to first determine how often you will be using it. This PWMA certified unit comes with an aluminium axial cam pump which means it is intended for occasional use. Units with brass head axial cam pumps or a brass head triplex pumps are an ideal choice for frequent use.

This machine features an onboard storage for the nozzles. It also has a hook-and-loop strap to secure the high pressure hose in place. Located on the sides of the machine are storage areas to keep both the trigger handle and spray wand. With all of these features transporting and storing this unit will not be a challenge.

The Powerstroke PS80519 2200 PSI Gas Pressure Washer has received some very positive feedback from its customers at Amazon.com. The product currently has a review rating of 4.2/5 stars. The one thing consistently commented on is that it has plenty of power for various applications. There are some complaints about this unit concerning initial start up but not a lot of the reviewers have reported this issue.

It may not be strong enough to reach 2nd story windows and siding. But if you are planning to use it for power washing your concrete patio or driveway, then based on the customer feedback you will be happy with this product. One customer commented that it runs a very long time with very little gas. The 3 quick connect nozzles and the extended-reach 25′ high pressure hose also make power washing easy.

Obviously, not all reviewers have been satisfied with this product. It may or may not work for you. But if you have a need for a compact gas powered power washer that offers plenty of power, the PowerStroke PS80519 is definitely worth considering.
