This pressure unit is powered by a universal 120V 60Hz Motor which is able to produce a maximum force of 2000 PSI at 1.4 GPM. This ar blue clean 2000 pressure washer, produces a cleaning power of 2800. It’s not a surprise that this is a famous electric power washer.

What can you clean with the AR Blue Clean AR390SS?
This is a pressure washer that sits firmly in the medium-duty group of pressure washers. This means that it’s great for the vast majority of cleaning tasks, it can tackle a wide variety of surfaces.
This is the perfect group for homeowners.
You’ll easily get rid of seasonable build up like pine cones, needles and all the other seasonal muck that appears.
You will easily remove dust, dirt, mud, grime and even moss. This is a pressure washer that will easily clean your patio furniture, your outdoor equipment such as your BBQ or lawnmower.
It’ll even handle heavy machinery, cars, bicycles, stairs, windows, decks, and even sidings. This very well known electric pressure washer unit isn’t a light-weight like other electric power washers on the market, but with its durable wheels, you won’t have any problems moving it around.
I was even able to pair this up with a pressure washer sand blast kit and remove paint and rust from some garden tools, to get them ready for new paint.
Above I covered a list of pros and cons, but I wanted to swing back around and focus on some things I really like.
The Total Stop System (TSS) is really useful. It saves money and prolongs the life of your pressure washer pump. The warranty that you get with this unit and the customer service is just excellent, you’ll be hard-pressed to find better.
While this isn’t the smallest unit, it is tightly packed for convenience, with its built-in hose reel, the holster for your professional lance, and the onboard detergent tanks, everything has it’s place so it takes up as little space as possible.
There are a lot of plastic parts, which could have been better manufactured or at least made with more durable materials. The lance is made from zinc steel, which would be better if it was brass.
If you are after something that is more of a commercial, industrial grade cleaner, then this isn’t the unit for you. Though this does cost a lot less than an industrial-grade cleaner. However, if you are after a compact pressure washer that has everything your need for medium-duty jobs, then the Blue clean AR390SS is for you.
This is a pressure washer that will tackle those tougher stains, but they will require more effort from your and the power washer. The ratio between power and price is perfect with this unit.
If you are after a residential cleaner then this is a versatile pressure washer which will fill your needs, given its excellent warranty coverage and its pressure output, other units on the market with similar possibilities, well they cost almost double. The value for money from this pressure washer is insane.
I tested this unit thoroughly which is what led to the conclusions I’ve made in this Blue Clean AR390ss review, hopefully, you’ll be able to make an informed decision, knowing the good and bad of this pressure washer.
There are more powerful unit outs there, but this is still an excellent purchase. This is a pressure washer which is highly rated, it was included in the Top-rated Consumer Report in 2016 for electric pressure washer tests
This model is unique, unlike others in the brand line-up. The new and improved aluminum garden hose adapter, larger cord storage and gun holster set this product apart from the original washers from AR Blue Clean. It has a well-designed body that is extremely durable and can stand hefty tasks.
All in all, ARs new electric pressure washer is an exceptional product that combines functionality and durability.
