  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas

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.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX1000 is started simply by an 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. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. 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

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. It must be noted that the Sun Joe SPX1000 doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook. 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.
