Zoom on the Simpson MS60763-S
The Simpson MS60763-S, a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- 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
Using a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (roughly 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7440 Cleaning Units.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Kohler RH265 engine.
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. The robust and sturdy steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the MS60763-S convenience of transport.
The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 58 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Kohler RH265 engine and its steel frame. The MS60763-S can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.
The Simpson MS60763-S's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The Simpson MS60763-S includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 7:1 ratio. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.

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.
- The Simpson MS60763-S, with a maximum pressure output of 3100 PSI, has an average pressure output, when considering gas-powered units in $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 Stanley SXPW3425, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
- This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Predator 3100, which can reach up to 2.8 GPM.
- As the MS60763-S has a total of 7440 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced gas-powered units. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Westinghouse WPX3400 and its 8840 Cleaning 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 cheap side of the price range.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
