Description

Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX

In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX is a medium duty pressure washer that allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX's axial pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2050 PSI (approximately 34 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.8 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 1600 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM. The Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX thus has a cleaning power of 1760 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX'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 D12 x W14 x H30 in, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX2688-MAX convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 21.4 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. On top of its light weight, the transportability and ease of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two solid wheels.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 3 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
