The details

If the name Sun Joe sounds familiar, it's because it is. The brand is an arm of the Snow Joe company, which, if you were hit with record-breaking snow this past winter, you may recognize as the brand name behind your favourite electric shovels and snow blowers.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the Sun Joe electric pressure washer has earned the top spot as Amazon Canada's best-selling pressure washer.

The pressure washer generates up to 2030 PSI of water pressure and 1.76 GPM of water flow, thanks to its powerful 14.5-amp/1800-watt motor.

The unit has a safety lock switch that automatically shuts off the pump when the trigger is not engaged to save energy and prolong the pump life and features two dual detergent tanks.

To customize your clean, the Sun Joe pressure washer comes with a range of accessories, including a 34-inch extension wand, a 20-foot high-pressure hose, a 35-foot power cord with GFCI protection, a garden hose adapter, a needle clean-out tool, and five quick-connect spray tips.

What people are saying

As Amazon Canada's no.1 best-selling pressure washer, the Sun Joe Electric High-Pressure Washer has earned more than 28,000 five-star reviews from shoppers.

According to one reviewer, the Sun Joe pressure washer is "one of the best" they've tried. Compared to its competitors, the Sun Joe "stands out as one of the best" because of the water pressure and volume.

"Single-handedly, [it's] the best $200 I've ever spent," raves an Amazon shopper. The pressure washer has "revolutionized my car cleaning experience."

It's "great" for clean-up jobs around the yard, says another user. It's done a "very nice job" of removing mud, moss, and gunk from hard-to-reach spots outside.

While the Sun Joe has earned a 4.4-star rating or higher for ease of use, assembly, and portability, some users say that while it "works well," the electric Sun Joe is "not as powerful" as gas-powered units.

The unit "only reaches its maximum advertised PSI of 2030" when you "use the smallest pinhole attachment," which only sprays a "surface the size of a dot," according to one user. Which is "not much larger" than the "tip of a Sharpie."

It's "not bad," but there's a "lack of real power," echos a second reviewer.

The verdict

With spring cleaning in full swing and patio season just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how to best tackle those tough stains and hard-to-reach spots outside.

For more than 40,000 Amazon shoppers, this means taking their beloved Sun Joe SPX3000 High-Pressure Washer out of storage to get the job done. With thousands of five-star reviews singing its praises, shoppers say the pressure washer has "revolutionized" the way they clean.

However, some users note the electric-powered unit is not as strong as its gas-powered alternatives, something to keep in mind before heading to checkout.
