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, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
With a 11 amp motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of 1450 PSI (roughly 24 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.48 GPM, resulting in the Sun Joe SPX202E's cleaning power of 2146 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX202E'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 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’s design prevents it from falling apart, since it is molded in the frame.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 11.2 lbs. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. 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: Using a set of easy-to-use straps, the included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- 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: The Sun Joe SPX202E 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 foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), wand, spray gun, nozzle cleaner, power cord and pressure hose.
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 and its 1450 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $60 and $90. 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 WEN PW19 with a PSI of 2000.
- As this washer can produce a flow of water of 1.48 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned price range. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Pulsar PWE1600, with a GPM of 1.6.
- Amongst similarly priced electric devices, the 2146 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the SPX202E rank as low. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the WEN PW19 with its 3200 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
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.
