Simpson PS3228-S vs MSH3125-S - The Differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Simpson MSH3125-S and the Simpson PS3228-S.

But before checking out explanations regarding their power, design, and features here's a table that summarizes the main pros of each of these 2 pressure washers:

As the MSH3125-S and the PS3228-S 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: While the Simpson MSH3125-S features a fairly standard, axial-type pump, the Simpson PS3228-S boasts a higher-end, triplex plunger pump. The former's pump is manufactured by AAA. The pump on the Simpson MSH3125-S is powered by a 187 cc engine, while the Simpson PS3228-S uses a 196 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 PS3228-S.

  • Pressure: With very similar maximum reachable pressures (3200 PSI for the Simpson MSH3125-S and 3300 PSI for the Simpson PS3228-S), both devices should do an equally good job at lifting and blasting off dirt.
  • Water Flow: These 2 units offer the same maximum water flow. Each of them should be able to deliver a maximum of 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute) and to offer the same rinsing power.
  • Cleaning Power: As the difference in Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) between the Simpson MSH3125-S and the PS3228-S (8000 and 8250 C.U., respectively) can be considered negligible, we can say that both theses devices share the same overall cleaning efficiency.

Design Comparison

  • Design: Both units are constructed with a wheelbarrow design. Therefore, if either of these 2 devices should provide better mobility, it would be due to its wheels and weight (which we detail just below).
  • Weight: Weighing 55 lbs, the MSH3125-S is far lighter than the 82 lbs of the PS3228-S.
  • Maneuverability: Both products benefit from a set of wheels, which greatly contributes to their maneuverability. The PS3228-S has the advantage of having a reversible handle, which allows it to take up less space when not in use.

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 PS3228-S 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 PS3228-S both offer onboard storage that allows you to neatly keep the accessories you need at hand. Both washers feature a set of hooks to help you neatly store their high pressure hoses when not in use.
