Zoom on the Sun Joe SPX9006-PRO
In a nutshell, the Sun Joe SPX9006-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, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial pump, which utilizes a 13.5 amp induction motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1300 PSI (almost 22 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2600 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the SPX9006-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 SPX9006-PRO offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D22.3 x W18.3 x H35.4 in. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the SPX9006-PRO convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of 62.4 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its motor and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 9.5" wheels, the SPX9006-PRO remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.
Along with the Sun Joe SPX9006-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: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 1 gal tank. It must be noted that the Sun Joe SPX9006-PRO doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: Using a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan, the included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
- 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.
