Description

The SIMPSON MegaShot 3000 PSI @ 2.4 GPM pressure washer delivers optimal performance with ease. Its small size makes it perfect for homeowners. The Honda engine makes cleaning fences and patios, driveways, siding, cars, and more a snap, allowing you finish your outdoor chores quicker. The MS60809 comes with a 25’ hose, Dial-N-Wash adjustable spray gun, and 4 Quick-Connect nozzles.

Zoom on the Simpson MS60809-S

The Simpson MS60809-S is a heavy duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • targeted spot cleaning for hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and thoroughly removing stubborn stains
  • comprehensive cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and readying surfaces for painting
  • gentle cleaning of delicate surfaces, and low pressure cleaning of larger areas
  • applying detergents or chemicals, and rinsing surfaces afterward

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

Power

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes the brand new, specially built for pressure washers, Honda GCV170 (opens in a new tab) 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. Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

For this gas-powered pressure washer, the 166cc (4.8 hp) engine is started using a time-tested pull-start mechanism.

Fuel for the pressure washer is housed in a tank capable of holding up to 0.25 gallon of gasoline..

Design & Handling

The Simpson MS60809-S is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23.8 x W18.3 x H36.5 in. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly, providing stability and protection for internal components, even under demanding working conditions. The handle adds to the MS60809-S convenience of transport.

This unit, weighing 61 lbs, strikes a comfortable balance between portability and stability, ensuring easy maneuvering for users of various strengths. A significant portion of this weight is attributed to the inclusion of the 166cc Honda GCV170 engine and a sturdy welded steel frame. However, with its two 12" never-flat wheels, the MS60809-S remains highly maneuverable.

Main Features

Along with the Simpson MS60809-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: Even without a built-in soap tank, the device relies on a siphon hose to provide detergent. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Simpson MS60809-S will dilute the detergent with a 7:1 ratio. Upon connecting a soap nozzle, the pressure washer takes over the task of seamlessly combining the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of easy-to-use straps, the unit provides a convenient way to store the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose when not in use, keeping it organized and readily accessible.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand.
  • Nozzles: Below, you'll find a table outlining the 4 included nozzles and their recommended surfaces.

Some of the included accessories

  • Dial-N-Wash®: Simpson’s Dial-N-Wash® is an adjustable pressure regulator that allows you to choose a desired pressure for your specific cleaning application.

Its design assures its compatibility with most pressure washer standard spray wands and standard guns with threaded fittings.
  • Onboard storage: The Simpson MS60809-S allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation) and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Simpson MS60809-S also comes with wand, spray gun, pressure hose, oil, soap hose and pressure regulator.

The Simpson MS60809-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 MS60809-S compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Featuring 3000 PSI, the Simpson MS60809-S achieves a lower pressure value compared to competing gas-powered pressure washers within the $400-500 price category. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Simpson PS61201 that can reach up to 3500 PSI.
  • When measured against items within the price range mentioned earlier, this washer, with its 2.4 GPM, falls on the lower end of achievable water flow rates. If you're looking for optimal debris removal capabilities, consider the Lifan LFQ3370E as one of the top choices in this price range, with a flow rate of 3 GPM.
  • With a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the MS60809-S falls on the lower end compared to similarly priced gas-powered devices. If prioritizing the highest overall cleaning power, the Lifan LFQ3370E with its 9900 Cleaning Units may stand out for its exceptional cleaning efficiency among similarly priced units.

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7000 and 7500 Cleaning Units, the Simpson MS60809-S is on the average side of the price range.
