Zoom on the Simpson MS60763-S
In summary, the Simpson MS60763-S is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 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), resulting in the Simpson MS60763-S's cleaning power of 7440 Cleaning Units.
The Kohler RH265 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.
A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.5 gallon is used to store gasoline.
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.
The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 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: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured 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: 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 steel wand.
- Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

- 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.

- This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Lifan LFQ3370, with a GPM of 3.
- 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. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
