Zoom on the Simpson MS60763-S
In a nutshell, the Simpson MS60763-S is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3100 PSI (around 52 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 MS60763-S has a cleaning power of 7440 Cleaning Units.
The Kohler RH265 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.5 gallon.
Design & Handling
The wheelbarrow design of the Simpson MS60763-S grants mobility and stability to the unit. Its sturdy steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the MS60763-S convenience of transport.
Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 58 lbs. Its 196 cc Kohler RH265 engine and steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Since the MS60763-S has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
The Simpson MS60763-S comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Simpson MS60763-S will dilute the detergent with a 7:1 ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
- 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 enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand.
- Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The Simpson MS60763-S's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Simpson MS60763-S compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- Reaching a 3100 PSI max pressure output, the Simpson MS60763-S has an expected pressure value, compared to the other gas-powered units in the $300 to $400 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse WPX3400, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
- In the aforementioned price range, the GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer, which can reach 2.4, can be considered in the average. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Predator 3200, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
- With the MS60763-S's 7440 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), its cleaning efficiency range may be considered average, compared to gas-powered units of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Predator 3200 and its 8960 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7000 and 7500 Cleaning Units, the Simpson MS60763-S is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
