Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX3501

The Sun Joe SPX3501 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • use of 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 SPX3501 in use

The Sun Joe SPX3501

Powered by a 13 amp motor, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 2000 PSI (around 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.09 GPM. Combined, these values mean that the Sun Joe SPX3501 has a cleaning power of 2180 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX3501 is started simply 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 SPX3501 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX3501 convenience of transport.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 41 lbs. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. A set of two solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX3501

The Sun Joe SPX3501's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.32 gal tank. The washer has a dial that allows the user to manually select the detergent dilution ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: Using a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan, the included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
