Power

The Sun Joe SPX9005-PRO in use

The Sun Joe SPX9005-PRO

With a 13.5 amp induction motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 1300 PSI (roughly 22 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 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 1000 PSI and rated flow is 1.8 GPM, resulting in the Sun Joe SPX9005-PRO's cleaning power of 1800 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX9005-PRO 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 SPX9005-PRO offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D22.3 x W18.3 x H35.4 in. The robust and sturdy steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the SPX9005-PRO convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

With a weight of 57.3 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. A major component of its weight are its motor and steel frame. However, the two 9.5" wheels allow the SPX9005-PRO to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

The Sun Joe SPX9005-PRO

Along with the Sun Joe SPX9005-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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 1 gal tank. However, since the Sun Joe SPX9005-PRO does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 5 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

The Sun Joe SPX9005-PRO's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Sun Joe SPX9005-PRO compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Sun Joe SPX9005-PRO and its 1300 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $480 and $600. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX9009-PRO, which reaches up to 1800 PSI.
  • The water flow of this washer, which reaches up to 2 GPM (gallons per minute) is one of the highest values found in the above-mentioned price range.
  • The SPX9005-PRO ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 1800 CU (PSI x GPM). If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Sun Joe SPX9009-PRO with its 1890 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
