This product was not only lightweight, easy to use, ( I have arthritic hands)... AND It got the job done!

I wanted to power wash my coated cedar plank deck. I did not know if the Sun Joe would have enough power but I was also afraid of gas powered power washers blowing holes in the wood. Sun Joe has plenty of power for me. My deck never looked better. I also bought a double swivel connector but do...

Great

WOW what a unit i've had a few different pressure washer's but this one takes the prize so easy to put together. So many different nozzles to do any type of job. long electrical cord and long hose to reach just about anywhere..soap or detergent dispense holds enough to do big jobs ,and the power wow...

Giving Five Stars across the board is not something I do very often. I have a Sun Joe electric mower, and a Sun Joe electric chipper, both of which I really like. I thought that if this pressure washer was of like quality, it should be a good one. My first electric pressure washer was an all plastic...

Rating provided by a verified purchaser

Overall I like this machine a lot. This machine has a few drawbacks that make me concerned. It's a good option in the medium duty category. The fittings are all brass and it feels sturdy where it should be for this price range. Pros - - Easy to set up. 15 minutes out of the box and you can b...

As a woman, being able to assemble anything right out of the box, deserves 5-stars on it's own! The unit is very simple to assemble, the operating instructions are easy to understand, and the unit works great! On the day I took it out of the box, I power washed a concrete porch, walkway, driveway...

I have used gas powered pressure washers for years, and had become jaded by their functionality, against electric models. That all changed with the first use of the pressure washer. This electric pressure washer is more convenient than a gas powered unit. It really can be run almost anywhere you hav...

Our only complaint is that the different spray options are not on the main nozzle.Every time a different spray is required a different nozzle has to be changed. It slows down the spraying considerably, otherwise, the spray is fine.

I used this to clean my concrete patio, gutters, siding, car & car mats, bird bath, plastic chairs, you name it! For an electric pressure washer to be rated over 2000 psi is impressive. I'm ordering the extension hose to have more flexibility & not have to move the unit around as much for those job...

Easy to assemble. Needed to read manual only once to figure out how to get soap out the end of gun (need to have right nozzle or brush connected). Only thing missing in an nice accessory bag hanging on the left side to carry my extension tubes, turbo nozzle, tire brush and combo nozzle. Do I get...

Bought this electric pressure washer knowing that the pressure would not be as strong as a gas operated model but it would be easier on maintenance. Was able to use this pressure washer several times now. Would have liked more pressure but at this price point it is sufficient. Great job cleaning car...

This machine is a workhorse. It removed 9 years of dirt and grime from our driveway. It took a while, but we could not be happier with results.

I purchased the SPX4000 because I did not want to deal with the hassle of a gas pressure washer due to some physical limitations. Before buying this pressure washer, I was concerned there wouldn't be enough power to clean my very dirty concrete walkway and double driveway but my concerns were put to...

The pressure washer works very well, I have only had an issue with some fittings leaking and SNOWJOE/SUNJOE has replaced those with absolutely no issue. The customer service is AMAZING.

I went through two of these in 2 days. The sprayer is cheap and doesn’t work properly. Do t buy this. It’s a complete waste of money

This is my third power washer, first by SunJoe. Excellent instructions (although should say 3 screws, not 4). Works very well. Like good selection of nozzles including rotating one. Very powerful. Also bought Patio Cleaning Attachment.Did 6 steps in 10 minutes.

Decent little unit. Plenty of power for around the house. Easy assembly. Would have liked the 25 foot hose extension.....great for siding with the 15° I can strip paint with the 0°

Easy to set up, easy to move around, and enough power to do all jobs around the home.

Questions & Answers

Does this unit have enough power to clean a concrete patio?

Absolutely. Quick & easy setup, & more than enough power for your needs.

YES cleans Driveways also

Yes it does but I wouldn't try to use it for business. Good for home owners that use it once in a while.

I had this unit for about a year now and I'm very happy with it. I wasn't sure about purchasing an electric washer due to power concerns vs a gas washer but I'm glad I got this. And since it sits unused more than used there's no worries about it not starting. I haven't used the detergent reservoir, just plain water. We had concrete walks and patio,brick walls, and aluminum siding that haven't been cleaned in years and this unit did very well on all of them. A little bit of advice, when you pull the trigger and then let off, let the pump stop completely before pulling the trigger again. It took me a while to figure that part out.

Yes,no problem!

Yes. I've used on concrete successfully

It should clean concrete OK. I use my pressure washer to clean locker rooms and restrooms. It does a pretty good job.

I think it does. I cleaned my sidewalks with just the medium head and it did a great job. Unfortunately, it isn't working this year. :(

any surface cleaner available to use with this electric pressure washer?

A surface cleaner refers to a disk shaped device that attaches to the wand for cleaning driveways and pavers. As I do not yet own this pressure washer, I cannot answer this question. But, I have seen the surface cleaners for sale at numerous places that sell pressure washers. I would also like to know the answer to this question, since my main purpose in purchasing this pressure washer is to clean my driveway.

Is/are there any extension hoses available for any of the Sun Joe pressure washers ?

Dear Jim, Yes, we do have an extended hose that will work on the Sun Joe 3000 PSI Max 1.3 GPM 14.5 Amp High Performance Brushless Induction Motor Electric Pressure Washer. The model number of the extended hose is SPX-25HD. Hope this helps, if you have any other questions please let us know. Thanks Customer Service Team Snow Joe + Sun Joe

I have no idea, but I have a question: Why doesn't my SOAP feature not bring up the soap through the tube? I have tried everything. I tried to call SUNJOE but have not gotten through.

Does this do well on vinyl siding and windows? I also have loose paint on my deck, will this loo...

I don't have a deck but will work good on vinyl sidings and windows.

Yes it does well on vinyl but if you have a two story house you will need an extension pole.

It works great on windows and siding. Not sure about the paint on your deck.

Yes, vinyl siding, windows, and with the right attachment, would rip loose paint right off. We have used ours on siding and windows, cars, and deck. Does a great job!

Generally speaking, you can use the equipment for any surface cleaning. You can be successful removing loose paint. However, you must be careful regarding selecting the nozzle pattern and the nozzle distance from the material that you’re cleaning. You can be your own worst enemy by destroying the material that you intend to be cleaning. I never use this tool for cleaning windows. It’s not worth the effort for the results you obtain using it. For cleaning dust and dirt from windows, I wash the window with soapy water and a sponge (just like a car), rinsing with the garden hose and then squeegee the glass. Then I wipe the window glass with a water and white vinegar solution (it’s cheaper and more effective than any window cleaning spray) using a microfiber towel and then squeegee the glass again. Step One removes the dirt, dust, and water from the window. Step Two removes the other contaminants, and moisture that facilitate streaking on the glass. If you’re seldom successful eliminating streaks on glass, you’ll greatly appreciate how effective this two step process is.

Yes,used it for windows, will remove flaked paint, pick your nossel with care! To harsh a jet will carve the wood.

It will do a good job on windows. On the siding, depends on how close you can get and what your trying to wash off. You can't use bleach with this unit. It won't do well on dried paint.

How do you get it to suck the soap out of the soap chamber?

Good question! Mine does not seem to suck the soap either, even when the soap volume knob is turned way up...

I've never had that issue. Is the lid sealed properly and the tube attached to the lid? If so, you may have an issue with the pump and need to return the unit for repair or replacement.

It only works with the “soap” nozzle attached. It might need to be on the Low setting to get it to work. If it’s still not working it might have a clog in the line.

There is a special nozzle that you use that allows the wand to dispense the detergent in the tank. And there is a knob on the unit that allows you to adjust the amount of detergent dispensed. My unit came defective because it didn't dispense the detergent even when using the detergent nozzle. I called Sun Joe and they replaced my unit with a new one.

There is one clear supply tube that goes from the soap tank thru the green rubber soap tank cap and back to the pump circuit. Pull loose the green rubber cap enough to look into soap tank. Confirm the suction tube is lying down on the bottom of the tank so it remains below the liquid level. You can slide the green cap along the tube to extend the tube further into the tank. Replace the cap carefully, ensuring that the cap is sealing completely around the lip of the tank opening. It is easy to not get that cap seated completely since it is very flexible. Check the tube where it exits the rear of the green cap to be sure it is not kinked and is connected at the other end.

Possibly by changing the switch to other way. It’s put away for winter.

Dear James, In order to have the detergent dispense from the Sun Joe 2030 PSI 1.76 GPM 14.5 Amp Electric Pressure Washer with Pressure-Select Technology, first you must dilute the detergent before placing it into the detergent tank. Afterwards you place the black soap nozzle on the tip of your wand and operate the unit as the soap will dispense. Hope this helps, if you have any other questions please let us know.
