  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Sun Joe SPX4601 in use

The Sun Joe SPX4601

With a 14.5 amp induction motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 3000 PSI (roughly 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). 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, resulting in the Sun Joe SPX4601's cleaning power of 2530 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX4601 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

The Sun Joe SPX4601 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23.5 x W18.5 x H35.4 in. Its sturdy metal frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the SPX4601 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Since the unit weighs only 45.4 lbs, it is very easily carried around. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 9.4" wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX4601 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 1 gal tank. The detergent dilution ratio can be manually selected, using a dial. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The included 20 ft ⌀1/4" 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
