Zoom on the Simpson CM61082

The Simpson CM61082 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Using a 196 cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (CETA-certified values). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7680 Cleaning Units.

The Simpson engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D16.5 x W13 x H33.3 in, the Simpson CM61082 offers great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the CM61082 convenience of transport.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 56 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Simpson engine and its steel frame. But, as the CM61082 does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Simpson CM61082's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a dedicated tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
