Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX2000

In summary, the Sun Joe SPX2000 is a light duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

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

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Sun Joe SPX2000 in use

The Sun Joe SPX2000

Powered by a 12.5 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 1740 PSI (around 29 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.59 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Combined, these values mean that the Sun Joe SPX2000 has a cleaning power of 2766.6 Cleaning Units.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX2000 gets easily started by a simple 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 D13 x W10 x H31.5 in, the Sun Joe SPX2000 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX2000 convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 17.4 lbs, it is very easily carried around. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. A set of two 6.5" wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX2000

Along with the Sun Joe SPX2000 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.24 gal tank. However, since the Sun Joe SPX2000 does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. Detergent is automatically added to the water when the unit is set to low pressure mode and to the 'Fan Spray' pattern.
  • 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand can be easily 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.

Other Features

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.
  • 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 SPX2000 also comes with wand, spray gun, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose and power cord.

    Got this and was looking forward to using it. Very light compared to my old unit. Fairly easy to assemble. Started to use and amazed at the powerful spray. Now the disappointing part, and why I would not recommend this power washer: when moving the unit around the hose keeps popping off from the unit. There is a garden hose adapter that you attach to your garden hose. Then you attach the adapter to the water inlet port on the machine. But when you move the power washer around the garden hose adapter becomes uncoupled from the water inlet port of the washer. These connections are all cheap plastic instead of brass. So I went to a hardware store and bought a brass coupler that connects the garden hose to the washer port and still the same problem. This is because the port the coupler attaches to on the unit is made of the same cheap plastic. Very disappointing.

    + PROS: Lightweight, Powerful spray, affordable
    - CONS: Cheap plastic hose connections.
