As the SPX3000 and the SPX1000 are both Sun Joe pressure washers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

  • Fuel: Both units are electric pressure washers.
  • Engine & Pump: The Sun Joe SPX3000 and the Sun Joe SPX1000 both use an axial-type pump to put water under pressure. The Sun Joe SPX3000's pump is powered by a 14.5-amp motor, while the Sun Joe SPX1000 uses a 11.5-amp motor.

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Sun Joe SPX3000 compare to the Sun Joe SPX1000.

  • Pressure: With a maximum reachable pressure of 2030 PSI, the Sun Joe SPX3000 provides a much higher force to blast off dirt and grime than the 1450 PSI of the Sun Joe SPX1000.
  • Water Flow: When operating at low pressure, the SPX3000 can generate a much higher maximum volume of water than the SPX1000. It can deliver up to 1.76 GPM (gallons per minute), whereas the SPX1000 offers a maximum water flow of 1.45 GPM. The former should thus allow you to rinse away dirt and debris with significantly better efficiency and speed.
  • Cleaning Power: With its 3572.8 C.U. (Cleaning Units = PSI x GPM), the Sun Joe SPX3000 offers a much higher overall cleaning efficiency than the SPX1000 and its 2102.5 C.U.

Design Comparison

  • Design: With their compact design, both units are constructed with a strong focus on portability in mind.
  • Weight: Weighing 11.7 lbs, the SPX1000 is far lighter than the 23.4 lbs of the SPX3000.
  • Maneuverability: Both products benefit from a set of wheels, which greatly contributes to their maneuverability. Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them.

Feature Comparison

  • Soap Addition: Both washers allow for the addition of chemical detergent solutions to the water. For the SPX1000, this is achieved via a foam cannon attachment, whereas the SPX3000 uses a dual detergent tank system.
  • Trigger Gun & Wand: While each of these 2 units comes with a fairly standard ergonomic trigger gun, the Sun Joe SPX3000 sports a classic wand, while the Sun Joe SPX1000 has an adjustable one.
  • Nozzles: The SPX1000 doesn't come with any nozzles (its aforementioned wand removes the need for any), but the SPX3000 is supplied with five (0°, 15°, 25°, 40°, and a soap nozzle).
  • Reach: Both products include a 20 ft high-pressure hose. Therefore, neither of them will, out of the box, allow for a higher freedom of movement around the unit. As both units feature a 35 ft power cord, their maximum allowable placement from an electrical outlet is the same.
  • Storage: In contrast to the SPX3000, which offers convenient onboard storage to keep your accessories at hand, the SPX1000 does not have such a feature. Both washers feature a set of hooks to help you neatly store their high pressure hoses when not in use.
