Description

Whether you’re a pressure washer pro, or just a homeowner who appreciates the value of pro-grade gear, SPX3000-MAX will perform for you. The powerful 14.5-amp induction motor is designed to last longer, run quieter, and work cooler than traditional universal motors, blasting up to 2800 PSI of pressure and up to 1.3 GPM to quickly wash away dirt and debris. (source: Sun Joe (opens in a new tab))
Note: Sun Joe claims that this unit provides 2800 PSI and 1.3 GPM. In fact, the stated PSI value is only at the initial trigger pull, while the stated GPM value is with a nozzle opened to the lowest pressure. Under a typical load, the working pressure is 2200 PSI and the flow is 1.1 GPM.

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 SPX3000-MAX in use

The Sun Joe SPX3000-MAX

With a 14.5 amp motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of 2200 PSI (roughly 37 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.1 GPM, resulting in the Sun Joe SPX3000-MAX's cleaning power of 2420 Cleaning Units.

The SPX3000-MAX is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started 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 and approximate dimensions of D13.5 x W15.6 x H33.9 in, the Sun Joe SPX3000-MAX makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX3000-MAX convenience of transport.

Standing at only 37.5 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 8" solid wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX3000-MAX

The Sun Joe SPX3000-MAX comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Two different detergent solutions can be used to match your needs, thanks to a dual soap tank system. Each tank has a capacity of 0.24 gal. The device has a dial which allows you to manually select the detergent dilution ratio. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using 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 5 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.
