Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX3501

In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX3501 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
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free 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 induction 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.

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.

Standing at only 41 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two solid wheels.

Main Features

Along with the Sun Joe SPX3501 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 removable 0.32 gal tank. The device has a dial which allows you to manually select the detergent dilution ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to 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.

The Sun Joe SPX3501's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Sun Joe SPX3501 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Reaching a 2300 PSI max pressure output, the Sun Joe SPX3501 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other electric units in the $240 to $300 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000, which reaches up to 3000 PSI.
  • This washer reaches 1.48 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Greenworks GPW2700, with 2.3 GPM.
  • The 3404 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), of the SPX3501 result in an average cleaning efficiency, compared to similarly priced electric units. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Greenworks GPW2700, which can reach up to 6210 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
