Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX1000

The Sun Joe SPX1000, a light duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Sun Joe SPX1000 in use

The Sun Joe SPX1000

Its axial (wobble plate) pump, which utilizes a 11.5 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1450 PSI (almost 24 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.45 GPM. These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1150 PSI and rated flow is 1.09 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 1253.5 Cleaning Units.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX1000 gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D12 x W9.8 x H19 in, the Sun Joe SPX1000 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX1000 convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 11.7 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. On top of its light weight, the transportability and ease of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 6" wheels.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX1000 in use

The Sun Joe SPX1000

The Sun Joe SPX1000 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching a foam cannon (not included) to the end of the gun. The Sun Joe SPX1000 is not equipped with a soap dilution mechanism, and thus, it is up to the user to ensure the detergent’s correct dilution ratio when using it.
  • Pressure hose: The 20 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand. Sun Joe's adjustable wand removes the need for different nozzles. By turning the pressure adjustment knob, it is possible to easily change the water pressure from an intense, 0° jet spray to a gentle, 45° fan spray.
