When I was choosing my electric pressure washer, of course I’ve tried searching the forums and Google but only found a lot of guesses and bickering. So I think, this article will help you get more information to make a right decision. And though it is an Ivation pressure washer review, you’ll find useful tips and advices in choosing electric or gasoline-powered one (for example, Simpson PS3228-S 3300 PSI pressure washer). We’ll also discuss Ivation troubleshooting, you’ll find here it’s manual and spare parts review, including washer turbo wand.
The Ivation IVA 9175l pressure washer is a machine for home use, intended to cleaning cars, RVs, boats, decks, etc. The washer pump is powered by 1800W brush motor and delivers 2200PSI at 1.8GPM. The maximum pressure allows you to clean siding up to second story. And this is more than enough for the foam cannon, it works amazing.
Iva 9175L – contents of delivery
Iva 9175L pressure washer comes with five interchangeable quick-connect nozzles: 40°, 25°, 15°, 0 degree and a foam nozzle. An onboard nozzle storage is convenient to store the attachments. By changing among the available nozzles you can concentrate the flow to a narrower stream with more pressure or wider with less concentrated water flow. Soaping nozzle applies detergents over a much wider area. High pressure nozzles remove most of the mold stain from vinyl siding and brick.
The cord is approx 30 ft and it provides a good movement range for this compact and lightweight unit. It is two prong and has a polarized plug with something like a GFI switch.
There are also a gun handle, a spray wand, and a turbo wand. The soap dispenser is a built in module and trust me, you’ll surely meet the times when you need detergents to combat stains and dirt.
High pressure hose connects to the front of unit with a large knurled knob. The other end goes the the wand and has a metal nipple
The brush motor only runs when the trigger is pulled and stops as soon as you release the trigger.
Bonus Turbo Spray Wand
The turbo spray wand is very useful for vehicle undercarriage and other hard to reach areas. This wand provides ideal maneuverability. If you need to change the gun, the “Tool Daily Deluxe Washer Gun, with Replacement Wand Extension“. The high pressure hose is interchangeable with the “YAMATIC Kink-Free Pressure Washer Hose.” You should consider, that the hose by Ivation only works with the Ivation gun, and may be (I’m not sure) with the Greenworks gun with the female end.
