Power Comparison

  • Fuel: Both units are electric pressure washers.
  • Engine & Pump: The Sun Joe SPX4600 and the Sun Joe SPX4601 both use an axial-type pump to put water under pressure. In either case, the pump is powered by a 14.5-amp motor.

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Sun Joe SPX4600 compare to the Sun Joe SPX4601.

  • Pressure: As the Sun Joe SPX4600 and the Sun Joe SPX4601 share the same maximum attainable pressure of 3000 PSI, they should both allow you to blast off dirt with the same force.
  • Water Flow: These 2 units offer the same maximum water flow. Each of them should be able to deliver a maximum of 1.3 GPM (gallons per minute) and to offer the same rinsing power.
  • Cleaning Power: Sharing an identical Cleaning Power of 3900 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), both devices offer the same overall cleaning efficiency.

Design Comparison

  • Design: Both units are constructed with a hand truck design. Therefore, if either of these 2 devices should provide better mobility, it would be due to its wheels and weight (which we detail just below).
  • Weight: At 36.6 lbs, the SPX4600 is somewhat lighter than the 45.4 lbs of the SPX4601.
  • Maneuverability: Both products benefit from a set of wheels, which greatly contributes to their maneuverability. Both offer a foam-padded 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 SPX4600 or the SPX4601, you'll be able to store your cleaning chemicals in the unit's onboard soap tank. Their soap capacity is equal, as the tanks of both units can hold 1 gal of detergent.
  • Trigger Gun & Wand: Each of these 2 units comes with a fairly standard ergonomic trigger gun and a classic wand.
  • Nozzles: Out of the box, the SPX4601 and the SPX4600 both come with a 5-nozzle package. The set of included nozzles is the same in either case: 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 SPX4600 and SPX4601 both offer onboard storage that allows you to neatly keep the accessories you need at hand. The SPX4600 features a set of hooks to neatly store its pressure hose. However, the SPX4601 pushes the convenience further by offering a hose reel.
