Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX3200
In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX3200 is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial pump, which utilizes a 14.5 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2030 PSI (almost 34 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.76 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 3572.8 Cleaning Units.
The SPX3200 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 L15.4 x W13.3 x H13.3 in, the Sun Joe SPX3200 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX3200 convenience of transport. The handle’s design prevents it from falling apart, since it is molded in the frame.
With a weight of only 27.5 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of four solid wheels.
Along with the Sun Joe SPX3200 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: Detergent storage is ensured by a 0.2 gal tank. The device has a dial which allows you to manually select the detergent dilution ratio. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
