Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX202E
In summary, the Sun Joe SPX202E is a light duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
The Sun Joe SPX202E's axial (wobble plate) pump, powered by a 11 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1450 PSI (approximately 24 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.48 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1015 PSI and rated flow is 1.3 GPM. The Sun Joe SPX202E thus has a cleaning power of 1319.5 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX202E 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 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 is molded in the frame to ensure that it will never fall apart.
Standing at only 11.2 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. Even though the SPX202E doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.
The Sun Joe SPX202E's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose 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 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 easy-to-use straps.
- 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.
- 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 SPX202E also comes with foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), wand, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose, power cord and spray gun.
