SUN JOE SPX3000 Pressure Washer Review

It's a great pressure washer without breaking the bank!

It’s summer time again, and home outdoor probably needs a cleaning. After looking around, we settled with the Sun Joe SPX 3000 Power Washer. It was at a really price and seemed to have most if not all the features other higher end Pressure Washer has. With excellent reviews online, we decided to buy one.

At this point, we’ve owned different Joe equipment, and are very familiar with its quality.

My Review

Packaging

The Sun Joe SPX3000 2030 came in a box and was packaged well. Everything was included; a 20-foot high pressure hose, 35-foot power cord, garden hose adapter, needle clean-out tool, 5 nozzles,  and a TSS (Total Stop System) trigger that automatically shuts off the pump when the trigger is not being used. This is to save energy and prolong pump life.

Material Quality

The Sun Joe SPX3000 2030 Pressure Washer feels really light. The frame may feel a bit flimsy for some people, but it is durable enough to get the job done. I personally, don’t have any issues with this because it makes it easy to move around. 

All the other parts are solid, from the pressure gun to the nozzle spray attachment and hose. 

The wheels are made of cheap rubber, so there is a hint of rubber smell out of the box. Other than that, you’ll probably won’t notice any difference when moving the Sun Joe SPX3000 Pressure Washer around. With it being light, it doesn’t require heavy duty wheels anyway.

Spray Gun Attachment

I can speak for all of the Sun Joe products, they are typically very easy to setup and install. This was the same for the Sun Joe SPX3000 Pressure Washer. Setup time was about 15 minutes, with a few pieces to attach. You have your detergent tub, the handle, and spray gun to name most of it. The Instruction Manual was very thorough and easy to understand.  

Performance

I have to admit, the performance from the Sun Joe SPX3000 was impressive. I did not expect much due to the price tag and how light the unit felt. I was able to clean an entire deck, pergola, large paver and wash my car without a problem. Overall, I’m satisfied with the performance.

Final Thoughts

The The Sun Joe SPX3000 2030 Pressure Washer has exceeded my expectations. I am very satisfied and happy with my purchase. Having owned one another brand (from Home Depot – can’t remember the name), that ended up not working and having spent much more for that, I didn’t have high expectations for the Sun Joe Pressure Washer.

Needless to say, I would highly recommend the Sun Joe SPX3000 to anyone looking for a good pressure washer for normal home use and not wanting to spend too much. I would say that the Sun Joe SPX3000 is a budget pressure washer, but it certainly doesn’t perform like one!

Overall, TGR gives the The Sun Joe SPX3000 2030 Pressure Washer a strong 4.7 out of 5 rating.
