As the Sun Joe SPX3000 and the Ryobi RY14122 have different manufacturers, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

  • Fuel: Both units are electric pressure washers.
  • Engine & Pump: The Ryobi RY14122 and the Sun Joe SPX3000 both use an axial-type pump to put water under pressure. The Ryobi RY14122's pump is powered by a 13-amp motor, while the Sun Joe SPX3000 uses a 14.5-amp motor.

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Ryobi RY14122 compare to the Sun Joe SPX3000.

  • 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 1700 PSI of the Ryobi RY14122.
  • Water Flow: When operating at low pressure, the Sun Joe SPX3000 can generate a much higher maximum volume of water than the Ryobi RY14122. It can deliver up to 1.76 GPM (gallons per minute), whereas the Ryobi RY14122 offers a maximum water flow of 1.2 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 Ryobi RY14122 and its 2040 C.U.

Design Comparison

  • Design: With its compact, portable design, the Sun Joe SPX3000 will be the better option if you consider portability, mobility, and ease of storage as important factors, as the Ryobi RY14122 can be considered less mobile, with a hand truck design.
  • Weight: Weighing 23.4 lbs, the SPX3000 is far lighter than the 34 lbs of the RY14122.
  • Maneuverability: Both products benefit from a set of wheels, which greatly contributes to their maneuverability. The Ryobi RY14122 has a foam-padded handle and the Sun Joe SPX3000 a standard handle, both of which aid in maneuvering.

Feature Comparison

  • Soap Addition: Both washers allow for the addition of chemical detergent solutions to the water. For that, the Sun Joe SPX3000 has an advantage over the Ryobi RY14122. The latter offers a single soap tank, whereas the former benefits from a dual soap tank system that lets you easily store and use 2 different cleaning solutions.
  • 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 15° and soap nozzles, but the nozzle similarities stop here. The Ryobi RY14122 adds a turbo nozzle, while the Sun Joe SPX3000's set includes 0°, 25°, and 40° nozzles.
  • Reach: With its included 25 ft high-pressure hose, the Ryobi RY14122 will allow you, out of the box, to move farther away from the unit than the Sun Joe SPX3000 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 RY14122 and SPX3000 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.
