  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Simpson MS60763-S in use

The Simpson MS60763-S

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.

Main Features

The Simpson MS60763-S in use

The Simpson MS60763-S

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.
  • 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, which can reach a PSI of 3100, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other gas-powered units that cost between $300 and $400.

  • 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.
