The AR Blue Clean AR390SS is the most powerful, durable and reliable electric pressure washer we make. Cleaning power comes from a 14 Amp / 1.6 HP universal motor and tri-axial pressure washer pump delivering 2000 PSI at 1.4GPM of adjustable cleaning power that you can use to quickly blast away dirt, mold and grime to reveal a fresh clean look. Power wash clean wood surfaces like decks, siding and fences clean to look new again with no need to sand, scrape, or paint. Safe to use on most concrete, stone and stucco surfaces. Clean cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, ATVs and bicycles in minutes.

Finally don’t forget patio furniture, garbage cans, pet cages, lawn mowers, outdoor equipment and much more. The AR390SS is certified by CSA International for safety.

AR Blue Clean AR390SS pressure washer review

Effective cleaning, if not with as much power as gas models, helped this AR electric pressure washer score impressively in our tests. So did a smattering of helpful features. For starters, there’s a hose reel that’s attached at one end, so you only unreel what you need and easily rewind it after. (You only have to screw in the wand.) Besides the four replaceable nozzle tips, you get a turbo nozzle. You get a built-in soap tank. And this model alone, among tested products, has an adjustable cleaning-agent control, so you can use use cleaning agent only at the rate you need–without running out as quickly. As with most other electric models tested, the AR is fairly quiet.

(Note: Because of the greater risk of injury, we recommend no pressure washer that comes with a zero-degree replaceable nozzle or setting, no matter how well it cleans.)

AR Blue Clean AR390SS pressure washer Test Results

Very easy to move and transport. Easy to operate — just plug it in — but may need an adapter for some outlets. Very convenient hose storage, built-in reel with only a wand connection. Cord is very easy to wrap and store. Wand very easy to remove and use. Very easy to use and read on-off switch.

The AR Blue Clean AR390SS is part of the Pressure washer test program. In our lab tests, Pressure washer models like the AR383 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Cleaning: Versatility and efficiency in cleaning a range of surfaces. The better performers have multiple spray patterns that can cover various cleaning chores, from light, superficial cleaning to deep cleaning of concrete, decking, and other hard-to-clean surfaces.

Power: A combination of pressure, measured in pounds per square inch (psi), and flow, measured in gallons per minute (gpm). Higher pressure results in better cleaning of a given surface; coupled with a higher flow as well, you’ll get the job done the fastest.

Noise: A combination of measurements, based on dBA, reflecting the proximity of the operator to the pressure washer. While our Noise score averages measurements taken close by the machine and at the end of the hose’s typical reach, we strongly strongly recommend hearing protection for working close by a gas-powered model in particular.
