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, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away 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 motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 1150 PSI (around 19 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.24 GPM. Combined, these values mean that the Sun Joe SPX2000 has a cleaning power of 1426 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX2000'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 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.

With a weight of only 17.4 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 6.5" wheels.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX2000 in use

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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.24 gal tank. It must be noted that the Sun Joe SPX2000 doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. 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 20 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand may be conveniently 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 accessories of the Sun Joe SPX2000

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: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Sun Joe SPX2000 comes with power cord, wand, nozzle cleaner, spray gun and pressure hose.

The Sun Joe SPX2000'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 SPX2000 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Sun Joe SPX2000 and its 1150 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $100 and $150. 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 Realm BIOP with a PSI of 2400.
  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.24 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX3200, with 1.76 GPM.
  • The SPX2000 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 1426 CU (PSI x GPM). If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Realm BY02-BCMT, which can reach up to 3675 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 800 and 1700 Cleaning Units, the Sun Joe SPX2000 is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

STRENGTHS:
  • Portable

    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.
