I hear about a lot of entry-level pressure washers claiming crazy high outputs and specs but when tested, don't come anywhere near what they advertise. When the VE56 showed up I thought for sure it was going to be like the rest. Much to my surprise, it did pretty great in the testing.
It does 1.84 GPM at 1090 PSI with the stock gun and nozzles and 1.86 GPM at 1050 PSI with the OG upgrades. The biggest difference between this and most other entry-level pressure washer units is that it uses a 5 piston pump instead of a 3 piston pump like you'd find on a SunJoe. That's how it manages to achieve a higher flow rate.
You'll have to remember that this is still an entry-level pressure washer and is not serviceable; it's rated for about 80-90 hours of run time. The construction of this is on par with other entry-level pressure washers.
What’s NOT included with this is the OE accessories that you’d normally see with most pressure washers. We did you a solid by asking Active not to include them with this unit.
Please note: The stand-alone Active V52/VE56 Unit can not be sold or shipped to Canada due to manufacturer brand limitations.
