The Sun Joe SPX3000 is an outstanding pressure washer—as long as you go into it with reasonable expectations. It delivers 2,030 PSI (pounds per square inch, a measurement of water pressure) and 1.76 GPM (gallons per minute, a measurement of water flow). This puts the model squarely in the medium-duty range, making it perfect for small jobs, whether outdoor furniture or vehicles like cars and bikes. You can even do driveways, decks, and patios if they are small.
This medium-duty washer worked great for cleaning patio furniture, grills, bikes, and cars.
We used it to clean our porch furniture, some white picket fencing, siding, and a grill we left outside all winter. The grill was caked with grime and grease, and the Sun Joe cut through it with ease. Because it isn’t overly powerful, the Sun Joe removed the superficial dirt from our porch furniture and siding without damaging it.
When we tried to clean an asphalt driveway, we had to use such a narrow nozzle and hold the wand so close to the ground for effective cleaning that our cleaning area was tiny. It was impractical to clean only a few inches at a time, and we switched to a more powerful 3,000 PSI gas power washer for this bigger job.
