Actually, the Power Washer infuses the chore with a bit of fun.
You don’t have to reach uncomfortably – the lightweight aluminum arm
extends from 52 inches to 72 inches – nor do you have to scrub: A
liquid-cooled motor spins the all-purpose rotating brushes (according to
the manufacturer, the adjustable pivot maintains brush contact at
angles up to 60 degrees). Powered by a 12-volt rechargeable battery (the
charger also is included), the Acti-Matic uses a quick-connect fitting
to mate up with any garden hose; the fitting also allows you to adjust
water flow for washing, rinsing and water conservation. Only seven
pounds with battery installed, the Power Washer also incorporates a soap
dispenser, easy-grip handle and locking trigger.
