Zoom on the Simpson CM61082

In a nutshell, the Simpson CM61082 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer that allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

Powered by a 196 cc engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3200 PSI (around 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (CETA-certified values). Combined, these values mean that the Simpson CM61082 has 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

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

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 56 lbs. Its 196 cc Simpson engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. The CM61082 can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The Simpson CM61082 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
