Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX4003
In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX4003 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 or high reach areas
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
Its axial pump, which utilizes a 14.5 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2200 PSI (almost 37 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 3520 Cleaning Units.
The SPX4003 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
The Sun Joe SPX4003 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W19 x H37 in. The robust metal frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the SPX4003 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 27.3 lbs. A set of two 8" wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
Along with the Sun Joe SPX4003 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.42 gal tank. The device has a dial which allows you to manually select the detergent dilution ratio. Detergent is automatically added to the water when the unit is set to low pressure mode and to the 'Fan Spray' pattern.
- Pressure hose: The included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand can be easily stored in a side hook. Sun Joe's adjustable wand removes the need for different nozzles. By turning the pressure adjustment knob, it is possible to easily change the water pressure from an intense, 0° jet spray to a gentle, 45° fan spray.
- Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Sun Joe SPX4003 also comes with wand, nozzle cleaner, power cord, pressure hose and spray gun.
