Item 1578182 has a 270cc Honda engine on it, which is roughly equivalent to 8hp. There are many variable to determine psi, like what pump is used, how many gallons per minute is being produced, and the Horsepower of the engine that’s being used.

On your pressure washers does downstream chemical injection means that the chemicals are dispense after the pump so the chemicals not through the pump

This pressure washer features a downstream chemical injector which means the chemical/soap is added to the spray/stream after the pump. An upstream injector will add the chemical/soap to the water before it reaches the pump.
