Sun Joe SPX3000 Electric Pressure Washer Review

By on May 26, 2017

 

When I was a kid, one of the “toys” that always seem to get me hyped up is the electric pressure washer when it’s turned on at the deck in the yard.

My father never allowed me to operate it myself and I have to wait until he turns the switch on to start playing with it. This unspoken arrangement also helped me avoid doing any clean up chores afterwards 😀

Now that I’m an adult in my own right, I still experience a tinge of excitement and look forward to any day which I will be using it.

Now I get more pleasure from seeing dirt blasted out of my sight and reclaim the house as mine from the effects of nature.

Look what becoming an adult has done to me…

The electric pressure water washer is one of those tools that many people have always wanted to own since a kid.

But being a home owner taking care of your own house, you’d probably want it for the practicality it brings… even if there is a small element of fun in this device.

This is where the Sun Joe SPX3000 Electric Pressure Washer comes in.

With it’s perky color, you would be excuse if your initial impression of it is that it probably needed a facelift to hide it’s lack of “inner-beauty”.

That would be a mistake.

Because this is one of the best water pressure washers available in the consumer market. It’s bright color is more of a show of strength rather than a decoy to take your attention away from what’s under the hood.

Drawbacks of Sun Joe SPX3000

One of the first things I looked for when I saw this beauty of a machine was what range of colors were available.

For machines like this, I personally like dull colors so as to hide it’s real prowess. I love to see the looks on the neighbors’ faces when they only realize that it packs packs a punch when turned on.

There doesn’t seem to be a wide selection of colors for this product.

Also like all electric pressure washers, the hose connecting to the machine can fall off when you make sudden squeezes of the trigger. But this can be easily fixed with a metal adapter.

Note that all such machines face this problem.

I was also hoping that there would be some way to eliminate the hassle of changing nozzles when cleaning. As of now, you would have to manually change them.

Is Sun Joe’s SPX3000 Electric Pressure Washer that delivers 2030 PSI worth buying?

If all you really want is a dependable electric pressure washer to clean your patio, or deck, or any other outdoor area at home, this machine will alleviate all your cleaning headaches with one fell swoop.

However, do not discount the extra features that make it more than just a basic housekeeping gadget.

It’s mobility and maneuverability makes it pretty portable when you take into account the size of this beast.

After using it on your lawn, you will soon find yourself tempted to use it on everything else including your car, driveways, heavy equipment, etc.

There is something satisfying about cleaning that is hard to describe. And I know that I’m not alone in experiencing this pleasure as I have friend who actually treats cleaning as a hobby.

I think it has something to do with removing bacteria and dirt that we instinctively feel is bad for our health and well-being.

Anyway, there are also other variances to this product too. You can find lower powered variants in the SPX1000 and SPX2000. There is also a SPX3001 model that includes a hose reel.

But for the power and bang for your buck, the SPX3000 delivers the best value. I can definitely see this as a permanent fixture in the garage of many homeowners.
