Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX2005P
In summary, the Sun Joe SPX2005P is a medium duty pressure washer, which provides:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
Using a 13 amp universal motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2100 PSI (roughly 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.8 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3780 Cleaning Units.
The SPX2005P is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started 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 SPX2005P makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX2005P convenience of transport.
Since the unit weighs only 13 lbs, it is very easily carried around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. This light weight compensates for the fact that the SPX2005P doesn't have any wheels, as it's not something necessary.
The Sun Joe SPX2005P'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. 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 wand.
