This review looks closely at a pressure washer with a very small footprint; the budget range Sun Joe SPX4000 is small, yet perfectly formed and ideal for home-use.
Sun Joe produce compact pressure washers for a variety of uses, such as the 3001 and 4000, though they all share the same compact design.
This model makes our list for these reasons, plus the fact that it carries such a small price tag for a budget to mid-range model.
Quality of Build
Sun Joe is known for being one of the leading brands for home-use washers.
As is the case with most Sun Joe washers, this model has a full 2-year warranty.
Ease of use
Budget and mid-range washers are known for their ease of use; this one is no different.
Value for money
For smaller home-based tasks, this model is perfect. It’s also very inexpensive.
Things I like
- Total Stop System (TSS) stops accidental activation
- Easily movable thanks to base-mounted wheels
- Collapses into an even smaller footprint for storage
Things I don't like
- Exterior casing made of inexpensive plastic
- Only offers 20-feet of hose, whereas other models have 25-50
- Will only allow parts from the manufacturer to be attached, such as nozzles and hose reels

Who This Product is For:
Electric pressure washers are specially designed for prolonged, intense cleaning outdoors, and the Sun Joe range targets the casual home user who only needs a model good enough to clean their vehicle and exterior home surfaces.
Decking, driveways, walkways and exterior walls or fencing are the kinds of surfaces that you should be targeting with the SPX4000.
Anything larger and you’ll probably need to consider a premium-range pressure washer.
