The SIMPSON MegaShot 3200 PSI @ 2.5 GPM pressure washer, you get optimum performance for minimum effort. Clean siding, driveways, cars, prep for painting and more quickly and easily. This is a perfect option for homeowners, because it’s lightweight and easy to maneuver. Powered by a HONDA engine, the MS60920 comes with a 50’ hose, ergonomic spray gun and 4 Quick-Connect nozzles.

Zoom on the Simpson MS60920-S

In a nutshell, the Simpson MS60920-S is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer that allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application 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

Powered by a 187 cc (6 hp) engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3200 PSI (around 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (CETA-certified values). Combined, these values mean that the Simpson MS60920-S has a cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Honda GC190 engine.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.48 gallon.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23.2 x W21 x H34.8 in, the Simpson MS60920-S offers great mobility. The strong welded steel frame assures assembly longevity. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 65 lbs. Its 187 cc Honda GC190 engine and welded steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. But, as the MS60920-S does have a set of two never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Simpson MS60920-S comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. The Simpson MS60920-S includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using 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 included 50 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
