Description

Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX2690-MAX

In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX2690-MAX is a medium duty pressure washer that allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach 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

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 13 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2100 PSI (almost 35 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 SPX2690-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, the Sun Joe SPX2690-MAX makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX2690-MAX convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 17.8 lbs, it is very easily carried 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 SPX2690-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: A neat storage for the included 20 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 3 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
