Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX2598-MAX

The Sun Joe SPX2598-MAX is a medium duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • 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

The Sun Joe SPX2598-MAX in use

The Sun Joe SPX2598-MAX

Powered by a 13 amp motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2000 PSI (around 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM. These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1500 PSI and rated flow is 1.2 GPM. Combined, these values mean that the Sun Joe SPX2598-MAX has a cleaning power of 1800 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX2598-MAX is started simply 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 SPX2598-MAX makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX2598-MAX convenience of transport.

Because the device weighs just 15.8 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

  • With a maximum pressure output of 2000 PSI, the Sun Joe SPX2598-MAX finds itself in the expected pressure range among electric units that cost between $100 and $130. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Westinghouse ePX3500 that can reach up to 2500 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the 1.6 GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer makes it one of the better performing units in terms of the delivered volume of water. 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 Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX, with 1.8 GPM.
  • Amongst similarly priced electric devices, the 1800 Cleaning Units of the SPX2598-MAX rank as low. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Pulsar PWE2001V and its 3200 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
