Description

Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX1650

The Sun Joe SPX1650 is a light to medium 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

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

Using a 11 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of up to 1900 PSI (roughly 32 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.5 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 1300 PSI and rated flow is 1.2 GPM. Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 1560 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX1650 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 SPX1650 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX1650 convenience of transport.

Because the device weighs just 17.6 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two solid wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX1650's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, with a more detailed description 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: A neat storage for the included 20 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 3 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

Other Features

Some of the accessories of the Sun Joe SPX1650

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 SPX1650 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 SPX1650 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 wand, power cord, spray gun, pressure hose, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water) and nozzle cleaner.

  • Able to deliver a maximum pressure of 1900 PSI, the Sun Joe SPX1650 is one of the electric products that produce an above average water pressure, in the $100 to $130 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 Sun Joe SPX2700-MAX with a PSI of 2100.
  • Considering its water flow, this washer, with a GPM (gallons per minute) of 1.5 is in the average compared to other devices in its 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.
  • With 1560 Cleaning Units, the SPX1650 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the WEN PW1900 with its 3200 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
