This power washer is very well designed and has an excellent build quality. It comes with a great selection of attachments and dual detergent tanks that make it flexible enough to tackle any household cleaning job. It is strong enough to clean down masonry walls and gentle enough to wash your car or clean porch screens.
Snow Joe engineered the SPX3000 with a number of features intended to prolong the life of the machine. Coupled with an excellent warranty and CSA listing, this Sun Joe pressure washer is a great investment for your home or garage. We honestly couldn't find any flaws with this all around electric pressure washer.
Performance and Features
The SPX3000 electric pressure washer cuts through grime and dirt using a powerful 1800 Watt electric motor that draws 14.5 Amps at peak. This exceptionally efficient motor generates a massive 2030 PSI of cleaning power. To show just how well this machine performs, a standard gas pressure washer generates around 2200 PSI. That means the Sun Joe SPX3000 delivers commercial level performance from an electric powered pressure washer designed for home use.
The Sun Joe is very simple to use and requires just a quick setup straight out of the box. It features a quick connect system which makes it fast and easy to swap out attachments. One of its most useful features is the dual onboard 0.9L detergent tanks. This allows you to carry a relatively large quantity of two different detergents and you can change from one to the other by just moving the unit's detergent switch. This is a great timesaver during larger cleaning projects, like cleaning a classic car where different materials require specific and very different detergents.
Also featured on the SPX3000 is the Total Stop System (TSS) which only allows the motor to run when you pull the handle to spray. This reduces stress on the motor and pump, extending the life of the pressure washer. The TSS also saves water and energy, a welcome addition in an era of constantly rising energy prices.
The Sun Joe comes with a 34 inch extension wand that enables you to tackle awkward jobs that would ordinarily requiring calling in the professionals. Roofs, soffit and fascia, undersides of vehicles all become easily accessible.
Included with the Sun Joe SPX3000 are five quick connect nozzles that are very easy to swap out and are used for different cleaning jobs. A soap nozzle makes an even and gentle detergent application very easy. It also comes with four spray nozzles that are stored neatly in the units handle. They range from a high pressure 0 degree nozzle, ideal for targeted cleaning and removing tough dirt; to a low pressure 40 degree fan spray that is perfect for rinsing cars and delicate window screens.
The Sun Joe has a well made garden hose adaptor that is great for preventing leaks and stopping kinks where the hose connects to the machine. The pressure hose itself is 20 feet long, giving you plenty of room to maneuver; which is particularly important when working on ladders or tight spaces. Together with the Sun Joe's 35 foot power cord, it means an end to constantly repositioning the washer while you're working. This was one of the main disadvantages of electric washers compared with gas washers, but the Sun Joe solves this problem nicely.
Warranty and Support
Sun Joe offers excellent customer support for the SPX3000 in the form of a two year warranty, which is unprecedented for products with electric motors. This speaks volumes about their confidence in the engineering design of the SPX3000. The pressure washer has also been CSA listed, a further endorsement of its quality and safety.
