Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX1500

The Sun Joe SPX1500 is a light duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

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

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

Power

The Sun Joe SPX1500 in use

The Sun Joe SPX1500

Using a 12 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of up to 1740 PSI (roughly 29 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.59 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 1160 PSI and rated flow is 1.36 GPM. Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 1577.6 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX1500's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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 D12.9 x W10.6 x H25.6 in, the Sun Joe SPX1500 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX1500 convenience of transport.

Because the device weighs just 13.5 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 5" wheels.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX1500 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. As the Sun Joe SPX1500 doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it.
  • Pressure hose: The included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to 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.

Other Features

The specs of the Sun Joe SPX1500

The Sun Joe SPX1500

  • Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Sun Joe SPX1500 comes with spray gun, power cord, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose and wand.

  • With its 1740 PSI max pressure output, the Sun Joe SPX1500 is in the expected pressure range, for electric units in the $80-110 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the WEN PW22 that can reach up to 2100 PSI.
  • The water flow of this washer, which reaches up to 1.59 GPM (gallons per minute) is one of the higher values found in the above-mentioned price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX, which can reach up to 1.8 GPM.
  • The SPX1500 has 1577.6 Cleaning Units, which can be considered low in comparison to other electric devices of this price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the WEN PW19 and its 3200 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
