Zoom on the Simpson MS60805-S

In a nutshell, the Simpson MS60805-S is a heavy duty pressure washer that allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The Simpson MS60805-S in use

The Simpson MS60805-S

Using a 160 cc (4.4 hp) engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (roughly 50 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 7200 Cleaning Units.

The Honda GCV160 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.25 gallon.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D26 x W18 x H35 in, the Simpson MS60805-S provides great mobility. Its sturdy steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the MS60805-S convenience of transport.

With a weight of 56 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its 160 cc Honda GCV160 engine and steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the MS60805-S to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

The Simpson MS60805-S in use

The Simpson MS60805-S

Along with the Simpson MS60805-S itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a dedicated tank. The Simpson MS60805-S includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 7:1 ratio. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
