Zoom on the Simpson MS60809-S

In summary, the Simpson MS60809-S is a heavy duty pressure washer, which provides:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

The Simpson MS60809-S's axial cam pump, powered by a 160 cc (4.4 hp) engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (approximately 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (CETA-certified values). The Simpson MS60809-S thus has 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.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.25 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D26 x W18 x H35 in, the Simpson MS60809-S offers great mobility. Its sturdy steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the MS60809-S convenience of transport.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 56 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 160 cc Honda GCV160 engine and steel frame. The MS60809-S can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.

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 though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The Simpson MS60809-S features an automatic soap dilution mechanism, that will dilute your detergent with a 7:1 ratio. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • 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 easy-to-use straps.
  • 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 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.
