Let's go one step up with AR - The new Supreme model goes above and beyond the standard Blue Clean models with metal inlet and quick connects. So no more plastic stripping off at connection...finally a model that has all the upgrades everyone is looking for in a consumer unit.

This model also comes with many other great features, includes a built-in hose reel, which keeps the hose tidy. You will also receive spray tips and a turbo nozzle to get those tough cleaning jobs done. A lot of... more

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.

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.

Wish I Had Bought This Years Ago
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.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations

Great Purchase
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!

Totally Elated
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.

Pressure Washer Ok But Attachments Are A Mystery
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
Product 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.

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

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

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
Product 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.

Wise Choice
After quite a bit of research on a replacement for my broken Karcher K3.86, I plumped for the AR390SS. So far this machine has done everything that I've asked of it, cleaning off my very dirty driveway, paths, entry way, patio, outdoor furniture and fencing.

Since getting it in early March, it has been in use every weekend for several hours at a time. Initial impression are of a well thought out and engineered unit that is also pretty well built. The lance has a very nice weight to it, with... more

Fast shipping, very easy to assemble, but would be nice to include the 5/8" allen wrench.

Works well, the sidewalk difference was amazing. Have to keep the nozzle pretty close to the surface, but mine had not been done for 15 years.

Hose is a little stiff, but nice and long, as is the electrical cord. Great to have all of the different nozzles. Glad that I went electric and avoided the gas hassle and pollution.

For doing the house, sidewalks, decks and screens, it is a... 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.

Impressive!
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.

Power Washer "blues"
I've been through many power washers over the past ten years, just doing general maintenance and car washing.....mostly had Karcher and the "green machine" from a Big Box store......combined total of 5 units....all failed for one reason or another, pumps, motors, pressure switches, kinked hard plastic hoses.....

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 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.

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.

Product Expert
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.

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.

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.

Assembly was simple and it works great. Like the hose reel.

It's exceptionally quiet compared to other brands.

As one who doesn't follow direction, I did this time and it went together easily.

Enjoyed the first use but noticed a kink in the pressure hose when putting it away.

Be careful with the hose.

So Far, So Good
Purchased and have used several times, so far so good.

Only problem I see is the windup hose, flimsy and too easy to upset machine when winding.

Otherwise good pressure, good cleaning easy to use.

Great Pressure Washer
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.

I would definitely recommend this washer.

Best I've Seen
I have owned several other brand pressure washers before, but the AR Blue Clean is a vast improvement over the others.

I could immediately tell during the minor assembly that this was a quality machine. The fit & finish is flawless and everything seems to have a place and purpose. I have used this unit to wash my truck several times, and it works flawlessly.

I use the included turbo nozzle almost always, and it makes washing my dirty truck a breeze. I actually look forward to... more

Good Unit But Could Be A Little Beefier
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

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.

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.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

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.

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.

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.

Cleans my aluminum siding pretty well and cleans the concrete pretty good.

Nice unit the only negative is I wish they put the part where you put your foot to roll up the pressure washer hose at the front not the side. And the wheels on the unit are a little cheap but are adequate.

For the price I would definitely recommend this unit.

What Took Me So Long
I'd been wanting a pressure washer for a few years now and a friend recommended getting an electric one.
I did a little research and decided on the AR 390ss.

I've used it 3-4 times so far to clean my truck,camper,and the driveway. I'm very pleased with the results. I'm going to get the flat surface cleaner attachment in the near future.

I also like the fact that the unit is pretty quiet and only runs when the trigger is engaged.

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.

Hose roll is a great feature and makes use very easy to unroll as much hose a needed. Power washed my concreted driveway and sidewalks. The unit had more than enough pressure to easily clean it with the 45 degree attachment. Same can be said for my wooden deck and patio.

Well designed and easy to use, would recommend it.

Nothing in my home or beach home has been any problem. Stubborn stains or paint on bricks or concrete come up with ease. Epoxy adhesives as well. The attachments allow me to really blast away something or do a more general cleansing. Just a great tool.

The machine has plenty of power, seems stable, the hose seems stiff but in time it should loosen up.

Henry,
If you can lay the hose out straight in the sun for a bit before you use it, it will be easier to work with.

Decent Unit
My Karcher died a premature death so I decided to try the AR Blue Clean Supreme. So far so good. Easy setup and appears to be made well.

The hose is my only complaint with the unit. It kinks fairly easily and is difficult to straighten out.

Super easy & quick to to get it ready. Cleaned the entire house carport and driveway. Also did all the brick work making them look like brand new! This has the same power as my gas washer has. I love the fact that it stops as soon as you release the trigger and starts up as soon as you pull it. !!! That is super for me. Also very quiet not loud like my gas unit.

Kent,
The Auto-Stop is handy, but please remember- page 14 of the Owner's Manual says to turn off the power washer off if it's not being used after five minutes. Water rushing by helps cool the pump and motor- they can overheat if the water flow is stopped for too long while the power is on.

Easy to use, no problems so far. Next is my driveway! I don't run it continually. Give it a few minutes in between jobs like the book says.

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.

What I Expected.
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.

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.

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

* 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.

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.

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

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.

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)
ēAdaptor 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.

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.

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...

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

After no success and anticipating a replacement, the washer started normally and seems to be working fine.

I believe I made the best choice for performance, convenience, design, etc.

Really Like This Power Washer
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.

Not only did it clean my vinyl... more

Have used only the Pressure Washer on 2 occasions, however each time, it has provided me with Excellent results. Takes a time or two, if you've never used one, to become familiar with the process, however it's breezed right through cleaning very old mildew/mold stains from my brick house and sidewalk area.

I would definitely recommend this AR Blue Clean Supreme 2000 PSI unit to anyone needing a "typical homeowner" unit. Sure there are more powerful units out there, but at this... more

Used my AR390SS for the first time this past weekend. Assembly was easy, and I was very impressed with the quality of the unit. It is solidly constructed and doesn't feel flimsy when rolling it around, etc... I found the operation to be smooth and the pressure power just right for cleaning the railings and bricks on our porch. Have to say that I'm really glad I purchased this product.

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

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.

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.

Not Off To A Good Start
I put my brand new AR Blue Clean Supreme 2000 to immediate use on a weekend in October, to remove mold from the vinyl siding and small concrete porch on the north side of my house.

After running it for a couple of hours, not constantly, the motor suddenly stopped working.

It sounded like a car with a weak battery, just would not turn over. And I had no water pressure, of course.

Unplugged it and walked away for awhile, then plugged it back in and it worked fine.

But I was very... more

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.

Best Of A Long Line Of Pressure Washers
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. The AR Blue is quiet, maintains pressure well, dispenses soap properly and doesn't constantly cycle when the trigger is released. It's not perfect, however--the hose reel is funky and hard to use without tipping the machine back and forth and who decided that the... more

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.).

My Newest Favorite Toy
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.

Great Customer Service
I have had many questions deciding on the correct pressure washer for my needs and the accessories that I will need to do the jobs I will be using it for.

Mike has been so very helpful every step of the way answering all my questions very quickly so I can get the most out of the pressure washer. I want to thank him for his excellent customer service. Without it, I would have been completely lost.

A Wonderful Unit!
Just like everyone here. Was reading every review and placed my order. Got the box and started it up! A wonderful unit!!! Will clean patios and sidewalks quite well. Unit is capable of clearing mildew and algae on concrete so long as it is feasible for a medium size house. It is great for washing cars and getting stuff like dirt and mud off. Love the soap feature. Only weird thing is the spout on the unit is plastic and the adapter is metal. Despite that for the price and performance... more

Broken Out Of The Box
Received the unit in a very timely fashion. Minimal installation required. Attached hoses, turned on water, and engine just kept revving with no water from spray. Awaiting replacement from the manufacturer.

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

Margaret,
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.

Please call me at 866-235-5112 to confirm we are taking of this problem for you.

Best,
Tom Sletten

Excellent Machine!
I wanted a power washer to clean my concrete patios and driveway. Living near the ocean, they got pretty dirty from the last few bad winters. The AR Blue Clean 390 SS with the rotating nozzle at 2000 psi did a great job. Very happy with the results.

I had some questions when I called to order it. The lady I spoke with was very helpful and knowledgeable. So, a good experience all around.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Could Make Plastic Water Hose More Flexible

Worth The Money
Purchased Blue Clean AR390SS on 3/4/2015. Just now got to use it. The purchase and delivery went very smoothly. Did have to call A.R. Blue Clean doing assembly because some very minor enhancements to the machine were done and the information had not gotten into the manual.

After about an hourís use, water was leaking around the connection where the lance screwed into the spray gun. Found the O-ring had broken. Both times that I called Customer Service I got live people immediately who were... more

1st Use
My husband and I always used gas-powered washers. Well, now I need electric due to the ease of maintenance of the machine, and the size to haul it around by myself.

This power washer was powerful as promised. I will not lie, my gas powered one was more powerful, but this one is much easier to haul around and does a very good job. All-in-all, a good buy for me and what I need.

Former Gas Powered Washer Owner
I was tired of dealing with maintaining my gas powered washer, I only used it for household jobs so I thought a 2000 psi electric would be more than adequate. I researched and read a gang of reviews then contacted Pressure Washers Direct. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff.

After answering my questions, I decided on the AR390SS. Great Price, free shipping, and it arrived very quickly.
Assembly was easy, used it very briefly right out of the box it worked great. I am confident this... more

Great Machine So Far.
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!

I used it for the first time today. I work as a custodian for a large company that does not have an electric power washer.

I needed it to clean floors and walls in small bathrooms at a local school so I bought this one it works great. I also have the AR deck cleaning kit for it but don't know how to attach it.

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.

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.

Review Of 2000 Psi Electric Washer
The blue clean 2000 pair washer performs well. While a gas powered washer has more power, the weight and convenience of this electric model makes it easy to use.

The reel for the wand hose gets a little hung up when you reel the hose in, but it does make for easy storage
