Power

The Sun Joe SPX3001 in use

The Sun Joe SPX3001

The Sun Joe SPX3001's axial (wobble plate) pump, powered by a 14.5 amp universal 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. These are maximum values that can only be reached in specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1450 PSI and rated flow is 1.24 GPM. The Sun Joe SPX3001 thus has a cleaning power of 1798 Cleaning Units.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX3001 gets easily started by a simple 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 D14.4 x W16.5 x H33.5 in, the Sun Joe SPX3001 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX3001 convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 29.8 lbs, it is very easily carried around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two solid wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.
