Handling and build quality

The SPX3000 is an electric unit so (compared to gas machines) it is quiet (your neighbors will appreciate that), more portable and you don’t have to deal with fuel or maintenance. On the other hand, its use is limited only to places close to an outlet (the electrical cord is 35 feet long).

The assembly is simple, takes only 10-15 minutes. It’s very easy to use, the wand is long enough and comfortable even for taller people and provides good access to hard-to-reach places. The whole unit seems solid and sturdy, it’s easy to move around when packed together (see the photo below), only gets a bit cumbersome when both the hoses are attached – but you won’t probably move it often in that state, the pressure hose is long enough so you can for example walk comfortably around your car while washing it.

The only problem some users mention is leaking from the plastic garden hose connection (it’s quite weak and can deform) – so if you run into any trouble, the most recommended solutions are: a) calling the manufacturer (they will send you a brass connector for free), b) using this and this connectors, c) using the Powerwasher 8006 Connect-kit (the reviews are rather mixed here, some people say it works great, some that it doesn’t fix the problem).

Power and areas of use

You could be pleasantly surprised how much power this unit offers – more than enough for an occasional home use. The additional PSI (when compared to similar models) does make a difference, only some users’ tests show the GPM is actually slightly lower when using the pressure tips, about 1.2 gallons per minute. The useful Total Stop System is used so whenever you release the trigger, the pump is automatically shut off to release to pressure on it and prolong its life.

The various nozzles work great, they’re stored conveniently on the back of the handle and switching them is really easy and quick. Here is short chart showing recommended tasks for every nozzle:

Picture Degrees For
extreme power to cut heavy dirt in small areas – tar and grease spots on concrete, caked mud (underside of lawn mower for example) + second story facade from ground
15° intense cleaning – stripping paint, removing oil stains, grease, heavy mildew and rust
25° home siding, brick patios, wooden decks, driveways, sidewalks
40° cars, trucks, boats, patio furniture, lawn equipment
soap low pressure detergent application – cleaning equipment, removing mildew and stains, degreasing

A few shots before and after washing

And there are also dual tanks for two different detergents which you can switch between and also regulate the amount that will be sprayed out.

Users report all kinds of job they accomplished easily using the Pressure Joe SPX3000 – cleaning large concrete patios covered with mildew and grime, fence lines after many years of sun fading and lot of mold, house siding, lawn equipment and of course simpler tasks like cleaning a car, truck, wooden decks or outdoor furniture.

It doesn’t seem to be ideal for the hardest jobs like stripping paint for example, also cleaning a second-story siding from the ground is problematic. You can take a look at some before/after photos on the picture nearby:

Conclusion:  If you want a quality pressure washer for a good price and mainly for an occasional home use, Sun Joe SPX3000 would be a great choice for you. It’s perfect for all light or medium jobs like cleaning your car, lawn equipment, wooden fence or decks, patios, driveways, house siding and so on. We highly recommend it.

However, for more frequent applications or larger areas to clean (driveways, large decks) we would rather recommend you a gas machine.
