Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO
In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO is a light duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas

The Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO's axial pump, powered by a 13.5 amp induction motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1300 PSI (approximately 22 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM. The Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO thus has a cleaning power of 2600 Cleaning Units.
The SPX9004-PRO is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started 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
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.
With a weight of only 43 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry 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.
Along with the Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. It must be noted that the Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
- Pressure hose: This washer comes with an easy-to-connect 25 ft high-pressure hose. But, there is no proper storage solution designed 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 table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate 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 trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation) and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
- Accessories: Included with the Sun Joe SPX9004-PRO are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as nozzle cleaner, spray gun, power cord, pressure hose and wand.
