This month’s interview features Kyle Notch. Kyle is the president of AR North America overseeing the AR Blue Clean Brand. He has been with the company since it was founded in 1998 working in the warehouse. Working his way up through the company, he has worked in every part of the company at some point.
Kyle is currently serving as the Vice President of CETA (Cleaning Equipment & Trade Association). In his free time shows up to events in a lifelike replica of a Batman costume he acquired.
Having created one of the most successful consumer electric pressure washers ever sold in the AR383 we like to think Kyle has more knowledge on electric pressue washers than any other person alive.
What are the most important factors a consumer should look at in a search for an electric pressure washer?
As a guy I always want the most powerful tool available. For pressure washing that does not always make sense. Start by really thinking about the cleaning projects you need the tool for. Electric pressure washers are perfect for house siding, decks, patios, driveways, garage floors and vehicle cleaning (cars, trucks, RVs and ATVS). The electric pressure washer was created for these common cleaning tasks because not everyone wants the gas engine noise, maintenance and storage that comes with a much larger gas pressure washer.
Electric vs gas. When should a consumer purchase an electric pressure washer instead of a gas?
First, because you don’t always need over 2,000 PSI to do the job. It’s common to hear stories about people using the gas and damaging wood surfaces like decks and siding. Most any pressure washer will clean whatever you can throw at it. Higher PSI represents allow a quicker time. Most gas washers have a small gas engine. These require more maintenance, gas, oil, flushes and etc. Electric pressure washers don’t require gas, oil are smaller, lighter weight. In some cases they may take more time, but you will spend less time in maintenance over the life of your pressure washer.
Why should consumers look at AR Blue Clean over competitors?
Annovi Reverberi has a 59 year history of making high pressure pumps and related cleaning equipment. An engineering tradition of Italian design that represents the best understanding of high pressure components . We design all our pressure washers end to end with that experience, No other brand is just pressure washers. We don’t sell chainsaws, lawn mowers or any other outdoor tools. It’s all we do. It’s why AR Blue Clean has become the test choice for Ace Hardware, Do It Best, True Value, Rural King and many other retail stores. They know their customers can count on AR Blue Clean products and customer services.
What are the most popular uses for an electric pressure washer?
I first want to mention that our electric pressure washers are designed to be easy to use. Pull it out of the box connect the power and water, hoses and start cleaning. The most popular uses are cleaning around the house. Specifically, house siding, decks, patios, outdoor furniture, cars and so much more.
What else should people consider after purchasing an electric pressure washer?
Extended hose for hard to reach spots, extending the reach and ability to clean. If you are cleaning patios, driveways, garages I would tell you to get a floor cleaner. That will cut your cleaning time down significantly while maximizing cleaning. Don’t forget extra nozzles, a gutter cleaner, and detergent.
When people buy any electric pressure washer what is the one thing they most overlook?
Using it frequently. The worst thing for a pressure washer is not using it. Using it lubricates the seals. It’s built to process water. If you go for more than 4 months without using it, we would recommend running pump saver through the system. The seals need to protected and using pump saver and etc. Absolutely don’t store it in below freezing temperatures without having done this minimum maintenance.
What is the future or electric pressure washers?
The pressure washer tool can be a critical tool in maintaining one’s property as people look to water conservation. In general our electric pressure washers use 80% water than a garden hose. I think about this as I watch people using garden hose to clean a sidewalk or storefront. They could use an electric pressure washer to do a better job using less time and water. As an industry, we need to all get the word out electric pressure washers are a great tool for anyone with outdoor cleaning projects.
Thank you Kyle!
