Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX2002-MAX
The Sun Joe SPX2002-MAX 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, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
The Sun Joe SPX2002-MAX's axial pump, powered by a 13 amp motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1900 PSI (approximately 32 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM. The Sun Joe SPX2002-MAX thus has a cleaning power of 3040 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX2002-MAX'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, the Sun Joe SPX2002-MAX makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX2002-MAX convenience of transport. The handle remains sturdy and will never fall apart, as it is molded in the frame.
With a weight of only 16 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two solid wheels.
The Sun Joe SPX2002-MAX 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 the included foam cannon to the end of the gun. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
- 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 allows for an easy storage of 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. An oscillating turbo lance is also included for high impact cleaning.
- 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: The Sun Joe SPX2002-MAX 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 turbo lance, pressure hose, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), wheel brush, wand, power cord, nozzle cleaner and spray gun.
