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, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail 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

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2050 PSI (almost 34 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.8 GPM. 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. These values correspond to 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.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 21.4 lbs. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. A set of two solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles 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 wand. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
  • Pressure hose: The included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 3 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
