Power

The Sun Joe SPX4800 in use

The Sun Joe SPX4800

The Sun Joe SPX4800's axial cam pump, powered by a 14.9 amp induction motor, can provide a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (approximately 53 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 2500 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM. The Sun Joe SPX4800 thus has a cleaning power of 2750 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

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D25.8 x W17.1 x H17.4 in, the Sun Joe SPX4800 offers great mobility. The strong metal frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the SPX4800 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

With a weight of only 37 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two never-flat wheels.
