Description

Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX1050

In summary, the Sun Joe SPX1050 is a light duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces

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

Power

Using a 10.5 amp universal motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 1500 PSI (roughly 25 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.58 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). 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. Together, the values result in 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.

Because the device weighs just 12.7 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. Even though the SPX1050 doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX1050 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed 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: This washer 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 3 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

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: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Sun Joe SPX1050 also comes with foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), wand, pressure hose, spray gun, power cord, garden hose adapter and nozzle cleaner.

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 and its 1500 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $70 and $100. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX2700-MAX, which reaches up to 2100 PSI.
  • Considering the above-mentioned price range, this washer's maximum water flow of 1.58 GPM (gallons per minute) is higher than the average. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX, with a GPM of 1.8.
  • With 1400 Cleaning Units, the SPX1050 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the WEN PW19 and its 3200 Cleaning Units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 1000 and 1500 Cleaning Units, the Sun Joe SPX1050 is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
