Power

The Sun Joe SPX4600 in use

The Sun Joe SPX4600

Powered by a 14.5 amp induction motor, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 3000 PSI (around 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM. These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 2300 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM. Combined, these values mean that the Sun Joe SPX4600 has a cleaning power of 2530 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX4600's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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 SPX4600 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23.5 x W18.5 x H35.4 in. The strong metal frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the SPX4600 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Standing at only 36.6 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. A set of two 9.4" wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
