Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX2500

In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX2500 is a light duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

With a 13 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of 1885 PSI (roughly 31 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.59 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards), resulting in the Sun Joe SPX2500's cleaning power of 2997.15 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX2500'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 D14.1 x W15.7 x H29.7 in, the Sun Joe SPX2500 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX2500 convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 23.8 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 5" wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

Along with the Sun Joe SPX2500 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.32 gal tank. The Sun Joe SPX2500 is not equipped with a soap dilution mechanism, and thus, it is up to the user to ensure the detergent’s correct dilution ratio when using it. Detergent is automatically added to the water when the unit is set to low pressure mode and to the 'Fan Spray' pattern.
  • Pressure hose: The unit comes with an easy-to-connect 20 ft high-pressure hose. However, it doesn't feature any proper storage solution for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • 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.

  • 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: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Sun Joe SPX2500 also comes with power cord, pressure hose, nozzle cleaner, spray gun and wand.

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Sun Joe SPX2500 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With a maximum pressure output of 1885 PSI, the Sun Joe SPX2500 finds itself in the expected pressure range among electric units that cost between $120 and $150. 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 Realm BY02-BCMH with a PSI of 2300.
  • The water flow of this washer, which reaches up to 1.59 GPM (gallons per minute) is one of the higher values found in 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 Sun Joe SPX3200, with a GPM of 1.76.
  • Boasting with 2997.15 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the SPX2500 is one of the more efficient devices in its respective price range. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Realm BY02-BCMH and its 4025 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
