Zoom on the Simpson MS60763-S
The Simpson MS60763-S is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free 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.
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. 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.
Along with the Simpson MS60763-S itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The Simpson MS60763-S has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 7:1 ratio. 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 steel wand.

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, which can reach a PSI of 3100, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other gas-powered units that cost between $300 and $400. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 that can reach 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 being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Predator 3100, with 2.8 GPM.
- In comparison to other gas-powered units of similar price, the 7440 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the MS60763-S are average. 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.
