Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX202E
The Sun Joe SPX202E, a light duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
Its axial (wobble plate) pump, which utilizes a 11 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1450 PSI (almost 24 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.48 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2146 Cleaning Units.
The SPX202E 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 and approximate dimensions of L15.4 x W8.2 x H12.1 in, the Sun Joe SPX202E makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX202E convenience of transport. The handle remains sturdy and will never fall apart, as it is molded in the frame.
Since the unit weighs only 11.2 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. Even though the SPX202E doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.
Along with the Sun Joe SPX202E itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail 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: A neat storage for the included 20 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of easy-to-use straps.
- 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.
- 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 SPX202E comes with nozzle cleaner, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), spray gun, pressure hose, wand and power cord.
The Sun Joe SPX202E'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 SPX202E compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Sun Joe SPX202E with its 1450 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other electric pressure washers in the $80-110 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Realm BY02-BCOH that can reach up to 2100 PSI.
- Considering the above-mentioned price range, this washer's maximum water flow of 1.48 GPM (gallons per minute) is higher than the average. 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 Realm BY01-VBS-WT, with 1.65 GPM.
- With 2146 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the SPX202E is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Realm BY02-BCOH and its 3360 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Sun Joe SPX202E is on the cheap side of the price range.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
