Power

The Sun Joe SPX4001 in use

The Sun Joe SPX4001

Fueled by a 14.5-amp universal motor, its axial pump can generate a forceful pressure of 2030 PSI (roughly 34 times that of a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 1.76 GPM. While these PSI and GPM values represent the maximum capabilities of the washer under specific conditions, it's important to note that under typical usage, the working pressure is 1450 PSI and the flow rate is 1.24 GPM. When these values are taken together, they yield a cleaning power of 1798 Cleaning Units.

As an electric pressure washer, the SPX4001 is easily activated by an ON/OFF switch, offering convenient operation. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design, the Sun Joe SPX4001 provides excellent maneuverability. With its strong metal frame, the assembly is built to last, providing stability and safeguarding internal components, even in challenging environments. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the SPX4001 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Weighing in at a mere 32.4 lbs, this unit is designed for effortless portability and convenience. Complementing its lightweight frame, two 8" wheels are integrated, facilitating effortless transportation.

Main Features

Along with the Sun Joe SPX4001 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 0.4 gal tank. The washer has a dial that allows the user to manually select the detergent dilution ratio. Upon attaching a soap nozzle, the pressure washer seamlessly integrates the detergent into the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: Utilizing a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan, the unit offers a convenient solution for storing the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose when it's not in use, keeping it neatly organized.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: In the table below, you can see the 5 included nozzles alongside their respective recommended surface uses.
