Zoom on the Simpson MS60850-S

The Simpson MS60850-S is a heavy duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate 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 MS60850-S's axial cam pump, powered by an impressive 208 cc (6 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 MS60850-S thus has a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Simpson engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the Simpson MS60850-S grants mobility and stability to the unit. Its sturdy welded steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the MS60850-S convenience of transport.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 69 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 208 cc Simpson engine and welded steel frame. Since the MS60850-S has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Simpson MS60850-S's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a 5-in-1 nozzle and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The Simpson MS60850-S includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 7:1 ratio. Detergent is automatically added to the water when "soap" is selected on the 5-in-1 nozzle.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzle: a 5-in-1 nozzle is included.

    Simpson's 5-in-1 nozzle Simpson's 5-in-1 nozzle offers five spray pattern settings (0°, 15°, 25°, 40°, soap). Selection of a specific spray pattern is made by simply rotating the spray selector to the desired setting.
