As the AR Blue Clean AR383 and the Sun Joe SPX3000 have different manufacturers, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

  • Fuel: Both units are electric pressure washers.
  • Engine & Pump: The Sun Joe SPX3000 and the AR Blue Clean AR383 both use an axial-type pump to put water under pressure. The latter's pump is manufactured by Annovi Reverberi. The Sun Joe SPX3000's pump is powered by a 14.5-amp motor, while the AR Blue Clean AR383 uses a 15-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 AR Blue Clean AR383.

  • Pressure: With a maximum reachable pressure of 2030 PSI, the Sun Joe SPX3000 provides a somewhat higher force to blast off dirt and grime than the 1900 PSI of the AR Blue Clean AR383.
  • Water Flow: When operating at low pressure, the Sun Joe SPX3000 can generate a much higher maximum volume of water than the AR Blue Clean AR383. It can deliver up to 1.76 GPM (gallons per minute), whereas the AR Blue Clean AR383 offers a maximum water flow of 1.5 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 AR Blue Clean AR383 and its 2850 C.U.

Design Comparison

  • Design: With their compact design, both units are constructed with a strong focus on portability in mind.
  • Weight: At 23.4 lbs, the SPX3000 is somewhat lighter than the 27 lbs of the AR383.
  • 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 AR Blue Clean AR383, this is achieved via a foam cannon attachment, whereas the Sun Joe 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 AR Blue Clean AR383 has an adjustable one.
  • Nozzles: The AR Blue Clean AR383 doesn't come with any nozzles (its aforementioned wand removes the need for any), but the Sun Joe 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: The SPX3000 and AR383 both offer onboard storage that allows you to neatly keep the accessories you need at hand. The SPX3000 features a set of hooks to neatly store its pressure hose. However, the AR383 pushes the convenience further by offering a hose reel.
  • Accessories: In addition to the usual set of included accessories, the AR Blue Clean AR383 also comes with a Turbo Lance.
