The machines that we will be looking at are the PowRyte Elite High-Pressure Washer and the Sun Joe SPX3001. Without wasting any more time, let’s jump in to find out the similarities and differences between these two devices.

Cleaning Performance

PowRyte Elite High Pressure Washer
With a pressure rating of 3800 PSI, this pressure washer does an incredible job of cleaning out dirt and grime from cement, decks, trucks, garbage cans, animal cages, and many other surfaces. 2.8 gallons of water flow through the machine every minute. This gives the pressure washer impeccable cleaning and rinsing capabilities on most surfaces no matter the impurities you are dealing with.

When it comes to cleaning options, this pressure washer comes with 4 quick connect tips for the spray gun to ensure that you get the perfect jet for the job. These four nozzles are one 0-degree nozzle, one 15-degree nozzle, one 25-degree nozzle, and a 45-degree nozzle.

Unfortunately, this pressure washer does not come with a built-in soap tank. If you need to apply soap in your cleaning job, you will need to make do with the external detergent dispenser. It’s not the most convenient, but it will still get the job done.

This machine comes with a 14.5 amp 1800 watt mortar that sends out water at 2030 PSI.1.76 gallons of water are pushed out every minute and although these numbers this may not sound like much when placed side by side with the PowRyte machine, the results are quite impressive.

The high-pressure hose is 20 feet long to ensure that you don’t have to keep moving the machine as you clean. Even if you are pressure washing a large SUV, this hose is long enough to go around the car without having to constantly move the machine. However, it would have been great if this hose would have come with a reel on the machine to make it easy to neatly roll it into a compact space after use.

At 35 feet, the power cord is also quite impressive. You won’t need to have a power outlet close to the area that needs cleaning because this long cord will give you the freedom and flexibility that you need to clean without worrying about power outlets.
