As the AR Blue Clean AR390SS and the Sun Joe SPX3001 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 SPX3001 and the AR Blue Clean AR390SS both use an axial-type pump to put water under pressure. The latter's pump is manufactured by Annovi Reverberi. The Sun Joe SPX3001's pump is powered by a 14.5-amp motor, while the AR Blue Clean AR390SS uses a 13-amp motor.

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Sun Joe SPX3001 compare to the AR Blue Clean AR390SS.

  • Pressure: With very similar maximum reachable pressures (2030 PSI for the Sun Joe SPX3001 and 2000 PSI for the AR Blue Clean AR390SS), both devices should do an equally good job at lifting and blasting off dirt.
  • Water Flow: When operating at low pressure, the Sun Joe SPX3001 can generate a much higher maximum volume of water than the AR Blue Clean AR390SS. It can deliver up to 1.76 GPM (gallons per minute), whereas the AR Blue Clean AR390SS offers a maximum water flow of 1.4 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 SPX3001 offers a much higher overall cleaning efficiency than the AR Blue Clean AR390SS and its 2800 C.U.

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 29.8 lbs, the SPX3001 is slightly less heavy than the AR390SS (which weighs around 31.1 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. Whether you choose the Sun Joe SPX3001 or the AR Blue Clean AR390SS, you'll be able to store your cleaning chemicals in the unit's onboard soap tank. However, as the AR Blue Clean AR390SS can hold 0.38 gal of cleaning solution, it benefits from a bigger detergent tank than the Sun Joe SPX3001 and its 0.32 gal tank.
  • 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°, 25°, and soap nozzles, but the nozzle similarities stop here. The AR Blue Clean AR390SS adds a turbo nozzle, while the Sun Joe SPX3001's set includes 15° and 40° nozzles.
  • Reach: With its included 30 ft high-pressure hose, the AR Blue Clean AR390SS will allow you, out of the box, to move farther away from the unit than the Sun Joe SPX3001 and its 20 ft high pressure hose. As both units feature a 35 ft power cord, their maximum allowable placement from an electrical outlet is the same.
  • Storage: The SPX3001 and AR390SS both offer onboard storage that allows you to neatly keep the accessories you need at hand. Moreover, both feature a reel to allow you to conveniently and neatly store your pressure hose.
