Description

Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX1050

The Sun Joe SPX1050, a light duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 10.5 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1500 PSI (almost 25 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.58 GPM. These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1000 PSI and rated flow is 1.4 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 1400 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX1050 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, the Sun Joe SPX1050 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX1050 convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 12.7 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. Because the SPX1050 is so lightweight, it doesn’t utilize wheels.

Main Features

Along with the Sun Joe SPX1050 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the gun.
  • Pressure hose: The unit comes with an easy-to-connect 20 ft high-pressure hose. However, it doesn't feature any proper storage solution for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: A dedicated slot enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 3 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

Other Features

Some of the accessories of the Sun Joe SPX1050

Some of the included accessories

  • Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
  • Onboard storage: The Sun Joe SPX1050 features a handy nozzle storage solution located directly on the wand, instead of on the unit.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: The Sun Joe SPX1050 comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get pressure hose, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), garden hose adapter, power cord, spray gun, nozzle cleaner and wand.

The Sun Joe SPX1050's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Sun Joe SPX1050 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Sun Joe SPX1050, which can achieve a PSI of up to 1500, falls behind the other electric pressure washers in the $60 to $100 price range. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Westinghouse ePX3100 with a PSI of 2300.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the 1.58 GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer makes it one of the better performing units in terms of the delivered volume of water. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Westinghouse ePX3100, with a GPM of 1.76.
  • The SPX1050 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 1400 CU. When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the Westinghouse ePX3100 and its 2356 Cleaning Units.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other electric washers between 900 and 1600 Cleaning Units, the Sun Joe SPX1050 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.

    After assembly, I used this pressure washer to clean my deck. I then stored it away properly for quite a while (typical of many home owners I think) until I needed it again. It leaked from connecting points of the pressure hose, O-rings are good (no abrasions, not cuts and still pliable) it simply failed to seal and leaks were significant-not just small streams. I attempted several times to get Sun Joe to replace this unit or at least provide a reasonable discount toward a different pressure washer. Even though it had catastrophic failure after a SINGLE ONE-TIME USE Sun Joe refused. Why anyone would buy equipment from a company that does not stand behind their products any better than this is beyond me.

    + PROS: NO PROS
    - CONS: I would rate it lower if possible. They do not stand bhind their equipment.
