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 hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (almost 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 7440 Cleaning Units.
This gas-powered pressure washer’s Kohler RH265 engine is started by a traditional 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. The robust and sturdy steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the MS60763-S convenience of transport.
With a weight of 58 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. A major component of its weight are its 196 cc Kohler RH265 engine and steel frame. But, as the MS60763-S does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be 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 detergent is diluted with a 7:1 ratio by the Simpson MS60763-S's automatic soap dilution mechanism. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
