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 hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • application 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.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Simpson engine.

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 steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the CM61082 convenience of transport.

Weighing 56 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. 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 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 is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using 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 table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
