As the MSH3125-S and the MS61049 are both Simpson pressure washers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

  • Fuel: Both units are gas-powered pressure washers.
  • Engine & Pump: The Simpson MSH3125-S and the Simpson MS61049 both use an axial-type pump to put water under pressure. The latter's pump is manufactured by OEM Technologies™. In either case, the pump is powered by a 187 cc engine. It is worth noting that both engines are manufactured by Honda. Both devices use a conventional pull-start mechanism to operate.

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Simpson MSH3125-S compare to the Simpson MS61049.

  • Pressure: With very similar maximum reachable pressures (3200 PSI for the Simpson MSH3125-S and 3300 PSI for the Simpson MS61049), both devices should do an equally good job at lifting and blasting off dirt.
  • Water Flow: When operating at low pressure, the MSH3125-S can generate a slightly higher maximum volume of water than the MS61049. It can deliver up to 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), whereas the MS61049 offers a maximum water flow of 2.4 GPM. The former should thus allow you to rinse away dirt and debris with somewhat better efficiency and speed.
  • Cleaning Power: As the difference in Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) between the Simpson MSH3125-S and the MS61049 (8000 and 7920 C.U., respectively) can be considered negligible, we can say that both theses devices share the same overall cleaning efficiency.

Design Comparison

  • Design: The Simpson MS61049 looks more like a hand truck, while the Simpson MSH3125-S looks more like a wheelbarrow. The major difference between these 2 types of 2-wheel carts is that one is more horizontal, while the other one has a more vertical stance.
  • Weight: Weighing 55 lbs, the MSH3125-S is far lighter than the 71 lbs of the MS61049.
  • Maneuverability: Both products benefit from a set of wheels, which greatly contributes to their maneuverability. Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them.

Feature Comparison

  • Soap Addition: Both washers allow for the addition of chemical detergent solutions to the water. In both cases, this is done via a siphon hose.
  • Trigger Gun & Wand: Each of these 2 units comes with a fairly standard ergonomic trigger gun and a classic wand.
  • Nozzles: Out of the box, the MS61049 and the MSH3125-S both come with a 5-nozzle package. The set of included nozzles is the same in either case: 0°, 15°, 25°, 40°, and a soap nozzle.
  • Reach: Both products include a 25 ft high-pressure hose. Therefore, neither of them will, out of the box, allow for a higher freedom of movement around the unit.
  • Storage: The MSH3125-S and MS61049 both offer onboard storage that allows you to neatly keep the accessories you need at hand. Both washers offer a way to store your high pressure hose. For the MSH3125-S, this is done via a set of hooks, while the MS61049 allows it thanks to straps.
