As the Sun Joe SPX3501 and the Ryobi RY142300 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 RY142300 and the Sun Joe SPX3501 both use an axial-type pump to put water under pressure. In either case, the pump is powered by a 13-amp Induction motor.

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Ryobi RY142300 compare to the Sun Joe SPX3501.

  • Pressure: As the Ryobi RY142300 and the Sun Joe SPX3501 share the same maximum attainable pressure of 2300 PSI, they should both allow you to blast off dirt with the same force.
  • Water Flow: When operating at low pressure, the Sun Joe SPX3501 can generate a much higher maximum volume of water than the Ryobi RY142300. It can deliver up to 1.48 GPM (gallons per minute), whereas the Ryobi RY142300 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 3404 C.U. (Cleaning Units = PSI x GPM), the Sun Joe SPX3501 offers a much higher overall cleaning efficiency than the Ryobi RY142300 and its 2760 C.U.

Design Comparison

  • Design: With its compact, portable design, the Sun Joe SPX3501 will be the better option if you consider portability, mobility, and ease of storage as important factors, as the Ryobi RY142300 can be considered less mobile, with a hand truck design.
  • Weight: At 41 lbs, the SPX3501 is somewhat lighter than the 49 lbs of the RY142300.
  • Maneuverability: Both products benefit from a set of wheels, which greatly contributes to their maneuverability. The Ryobi RY142300 has a foam-padded handle and the Sun Joe SPX3501 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. Whether you choose the Ryobi RY142300 or the Sun Joe SPX3501, you'll be able to store your cleaning chemicals in the unit's onboard soap tank. However, as the Ryobi RY142300 can hold 1 gal of cleaning solution, it benefits from a bigger detergent tank than the Sun Joe SPX3501 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 15° and soap nozzles, but the nozzle similarities stop here. The Ryobi RY142300 adds a turbo nozzle, while the Sun Joe SPX3501's set includes 0°, 25°, and 40° nozzles.
  • Reach: With its included 25 ft high-pressure hose, the Ryobi RY142300 will allow you, out of the box, to move farther away from the unit than the Sun Joe SPX3501 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 RY142300 and SPX3501 both offer onboard storage that allows you to neatly keep the accessories you need at hand. The RY142300 features a set of hooks to neatly store its pressure hose. However, the SPX3501 pushes the convenience further by offering a hose reel.
