As the SPX3000 and the SPX2688-MAX 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 SPX2688-MAX 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 SPX2688-MAX uses a 13-amp motor. Both motors are of the Universal type.

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 SPX2688-MAX.

  • Pressure: With very similar maximum reachable pressures (2030 PSI for the Sun Joe SPX3000 and 2050 PSI for the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX), both devices should do an equally good job at lifting and blasting off dirt.
  • Water Flow: With a respective maximum water flow of 1.76 GPM (gallons per minute) and 1.8 GPM, the SPX3000 and the SPX2688-MAX should be able to rinse dirt and debris as quickly and efficiently.
  • Cleaning Power: As the difference in Cleaning Units between the Sun Joe SPX3000 and the SPX2688-MAX (1798 and 1760 C.U., respectively) can be considered negligible, we can say that both theses devices share the same overall cleaning efficiency.

Design Comparison

  • Design: With their compact design, both units are constructed with a strong focus on portability in mind.
  • Weight: With an approximate weight of 21.4 lbs, the SPX2688-MAX is slightly less heavy than the SPX3000 (which weighs around 23.4 lbs).
  • 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 SPX2688-MAX, this is achieved via a foam cannon attachment, whereas the SPX3000 uses a dual detergent tank system.
  • Trigger Gun & Wand: Each of these 2 units comes with a fairly standard ergonomic trigger gun and a classic wand.
  • Nozzles: Both pressure washers come with 0°, 15°, and 40° nozzles, but the nozzle similarities stop here. The SPX3000 also has 25° and soap nozzles.
  • 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 SPX2688-MAX both offer onboard storage that allows you to neatly keep the accessories you need at hand. Both washers feature a set of hooks to help you neatly store their high pressure hoses when not in use.
  • Accessories: In addition to the standard set of included accessories, both units also come with a garden hose adapter.
