Description

Zoom on the Simpson CM61236

The Simpson CM61236 is a medium duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching high areas, and removing stubborn stains
  • comprehensive cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and readying surfaces for painting
  • delicate surface cleaning, andbroad area cleaning with reduced pressure
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces

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

Power

Powered by a 15-amp induction motor, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2700 PSI (around 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (CETA-certified values). Although the provided PSI represents the maximum achievable value, it's typically only reached at initial discharge. Under normal operating conditions, the unit has a rated pressure of 2100 PSI. With these values combined, the Simpson CM61236 boasts a cleaning power of 2520 Cleaning Units.

With its electric design, the CM61236 starts up effortlessly with a quick press of an ON/OFF switch, ensuring ease of use. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design, the Simpson CM61236 provides excellent maneuverability. With its strong steel frame, the assembly is built to last, providing stability and safeguarding internal components, even in challenging environments. The handle adds to the CM61236 convenience of transport.

Weighing 41.8 lbs, this unit offers a manageable weight that allows for easy handling by most individuals. The unit's weight is principally a result of the inclusion of the motor and a strong steel frame. However, with its two 9" never-flat wheels, the CM61236 remains highly maneuverable.

Main Features

The Simpson CM61236'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: Despite the absence of a soap tank, detergent supply is facilitated through the use of a siphon hose. Upon attaching a soap nozzle, the pressure washer seamlessly integrates the detergent into the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of convenient hooks, the unit provides a convenient way to store the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose when not in use, keeping it organized and readily accessible.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles and the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
