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 2300 PSI (around 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.48 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Combined, these values mean that the Sun Joe SPX3501 has a cleaning power of 3404 Cleaning Units.

The SPX3501 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 SPX3501 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX3501 convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 41 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.

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: Detergent is stored in 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: A neat storage for the included 20 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
