Just setup and you are ready to clean. The Clean Machine features a 149cc SIMPSON OHV engine paired with an OEM Technologies axial cam pump.

Zoom on the Simpson CM60912

The Simpson CM60912 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

Using a 149 cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2400 PSI (roughly 40 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2 GPM (CETA-certified values). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 4800 Cleaning Units.

The Simpson engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.24 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D16 x W12 x H32 in, the Simpson CM60912 provides great mobility. Its sturdy steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With a weight of only 43 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 6" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The Simpson CM60912's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 1 gal tank. The Simpson CM60912 has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 7:1 ratio. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 3 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
