Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L18.1 x W10.5 x H12.3 in, the Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the SPX9004-PRO convenience of transport.
Since the unit weighs only 43 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. Because the SPX9004-PRO is so lightweight, it doesn’t utilize wheels.
The Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. As the Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 25 ft high-pressure hose is included with the unit. However, it doesn't feature any proper storage solution for it (no reel, strap or hook).
- Spray gun and wand: The device comes with a classic ergonomic spray gun and a wand.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

- Wall-mountable: The unit can be stored on the wall thanks to a wall mount kit (not included). This is a welcomed feature when we need a neater storage solution or to clean the same area regularly (garage, barn, workshop, storage room, etc.)
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: The Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get pressure hose, power cord, nozzle cleaner, wand and spray gun.

- With a maximum GPM of 2 (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the top in terms of water flow, in its respective price range. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Greenworks GPW2200, with 2.3 GPM.
- With 2600 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the SPX9004-PRO is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices.
