Did you love taking things apart as a kid?

Yeah? (I loved it, too)

When did you last take a machine apart just because you could?

Two years ago? Not since you were a kid? Well, we got you covered…

…Here you’ll get to see a disassembled AR Blue Clean brand electric pressure washer with its 144 parts organized neatly.

Here’s what the AR Blue Clean pressure cleaner looks like put together:

What do you think?

Is 144 parts more or less than you thought it would have?

My big surprise was how few bolts were used and how much plastic clip-in fastening was.

Taking the entire pressure washer apart took me around 2 hours because there was lots of fiddling getting the pump and motor apart as I didn’t want to break anything.

Behind The Scenes

Let’s take a look at some more pics from the disassembly and photo shoot.

Here’s what the AR looks like with the front open:

I disassembled it with a screwdriver, needle nose pliers and wrenches and then spent time organizing it neatly on flooring I had bought:

Here’s the camera setup.

I had a friend come over with his DSLR camera and some lightning equipment. The disassembled pressure washer was in the PressureWashr test facility and we needed to find a way to get a proper birds-eye view picture. Here’s the camera setup we ended up with. It’s a piece of a tripod hung from the shed purlins:

And here’s a better view of the lighting setup.

The white boards reflected the flashes to increase brightness and try and reduce shadows:
