Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX4800

The Sun Joe SPX4800 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces

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 SPX4800 in use

The Sun Joe SPX4800

Powered by a 14.9 amp induction motor, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3200 PSI (around 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Combined, these values mean that the Sun Joe SPX4800 has a cleaning power of 4160 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Sun Joe SPX4800'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 SPX4800 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D25.8 x W17.1 x H17.4 in. Its sturdy metal frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the SPX4800 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Because the device weighs just 37 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two never-flat wheels.

Main Features
