Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Sun Joe SPX3000 in use

The Sun Joe SPX3000

The Sun Joe SPX3000's axial (wobble plate) pump, powered by a 14.5 amp motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2030 PSI (approximately 34 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.76 GPM. The Sun Joe SPX3000 thus has a cleaning power of 3572.8 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX3000'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 D15.6 x W13.5 x H33.9 in, the Sun Joe SPX3000 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX3000 convenience of transport.

Because the device weighs just 23.4 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two solid wheels.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX3000 in use

The Sun Joe SPX3000

Along with the Sun Joe SPX3000 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: The unit's dual soap tank system allows the use of two different detergent solutions, according to your cleaning requirements. Each tank has a capacity of 0.24 gal. The Sun Joe SPX3000 is not equipped with a soap dilution mechanism, and thus, it is up to the user to ensure the detergent’s correct dilution ratio when using it. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store 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.

    Excellent machine for the price

    + PROS: Easy to handle. Does an acceptable joy on most projects. The different nozzles are a plus. Very convenient to use when you don't want to pull out the big gas pressure washer. Heavy-duty high-pressure hose.
    - CONS: Wish the high-pressure hose was longer
