Zoom on the Simpson MS60805-S

The Simpson MS60805-S is a heavy duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • use of 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

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 160cc (4.4 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (almost 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

The Honda GCV160 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.25 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Simpson MS60805-S offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23.8 x W18 x H35.8 in. Its sturdy welded steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the MS60805-S convenience of transport.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 56 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 160cc Honda GCV160 engine and its welded steel frame. Since the MS60805-S has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Simpson MS60805-S in use

The Simpson MS60805-S

The Simpson MS60805-S's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. The detergent is diluted with a 7:1 ratio by the Simpson MS60805-S's automatic soap dilution mechanism. 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 table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

  • The Simpson MS60805-S and its 3000 PSI, ranks amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $400 and $500.

  • This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. 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 Lifan LFQ3370E, with 3 GPM.
  • The MS60805-S has 7200 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other gas-powered devices of this price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Lifan LFQ3370E with its 9900 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
