Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX3500

In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX3500 is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

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 SPX3500 in use

The Sun Joe SPX3500

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp induction motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2300 PSI (almost 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.48 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 3404 Cleaning Units.

The SPX3500 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 D16.7 x W14.5 x H36 in, the Sun Joe SPX3500 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX3500 convenience of transport.

Standing at only 36.8 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. 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 two solid wheels.

Main Features

Along with the Sun Joe SPX3500 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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.32 gal tank. The detergent dilution ratio is selected manually, via a dedicated dial. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
