Sun Joe SPX3000 Pressure Washer Review

Best-Selling and Certainly One of the Best Pressure Washers on the Market

If you like to spend a lot of time outdoors, and by outdoors I mean your backyard you will know how much work it takes to keep it clean and tidy. Personally, I like to fire up the grill as often as I can and have some people over.

Cleaning up after them is the easy part. Cleaning the grill however, is the hard part and I don’t mind saying I loathe it! Now, it is unreasonable to expect that a grill will ever be spotless but still, I would like to at least make it look better than a meteorite crash site!
I’ve tried everything without much success until one day I saw some workers taking down posters glued to the side of a building. We weren’t talking just one layer of paper here either, there must have been 20 layers or more that have been glued over one another for years. Nonetheless they managed to get them all down, and to my surprise the wall underneath looked brand new. And then it hit me. Pressure washers!

Of course, I don’t the need an industrial-grade model but I really could use something to clean stuff around my home and backyard. I did some digging, and found the Sun Joe SPX3000 Electric Power Washer, which I’m pleased to tell you all about below.


I chose to review this model for a number of reasons, but mainly because it is crammed full of useful features that make this pressure washer one of the best out there if you need to clean stubborn stains. Oil, grease, rust, and rubber are all substances this machine has been built to deal with (and very efficiently).

One reason it’s so good is due to the power this beast produces. The motor operates at 14.5 and 1800 watts, is capable of delivering 2030 PSI of pressure and 1.76 GPM continuous water pressure. Those figures are more than sufficient to kick any type of dirt into the stratosphere!

Detergent Selection Dial

Another thing I like about this pressure washer is the dual detergent tanks which allow you to switch seamlessly between different types of dirt and locations that need cleaning. Selecting which detergent tank will be in use is done by pressing the detergent section dial.

Hand Trigger

If you decide to do your pressure cleaning all at once, this one allows you to choose between two options: The trigger gun and the spray wand holder. The gun can easily be disengaged and turned back on whenever you need it.
Oh, and it also has a garden hose adapter. Increasing its already outstanding practicality is the pump which automatically turns itself off in order to save power as well as detergent.

Easy to Use

Getting this washer to work is as simple as pressing a single button, that’s all there is to it. This is due to the fact that it’s an electric power washer which is much easier to use than gas. Honestly? Even a small child could get this thing to work. Of course, I would advise you not to do that since pressure washers are incredibly powerful and dangerous when not used properly.

On the other hand, electric pressure washers have to be connected to a power outlet which stifles their mobility somewhat. Luckily, this model comes with a really long hose and power cord which allows you to reach even the most remote location in your backyard be it your barbecue, garage or the driveway. It also comes with a variety of different nozzles which can be changed without any fuss (or swearing)!

Indoor Use

Noise shouldn’t really be top of the list when choosing a pressure cleaner, but it’s still nifty when you have one which makes virtually no noise at all. The only thing you will be able to hear is the sound of a high-pressure jet colliding with the surface you are cleaning. Don’t forget that you can use this power tool indoors without an issue because it doesn’t produce any potentially harmful exhaust fumes.

The Verdict

I will be blunt. This is one of the best electric pressure washers you can buy. It is powerful enough for just about any job you throw at it, and it is packed with useful features that make it a breeze to use. If you decide to buy this one I don’t think you’ll regret it for a second.

If you need more clarification before making a decision head on over here on Amazon. After all, it’s their #1 best-seller for a reason!
