Design & Handling
The wheelbarrow design of the Simpson MS60921-S grants mobility and stability to the unit. The strong welded steel frame assures assembly longevity. The handle adds to the MS60921-S convenience of transport.
The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 71 lbs. Its 187 cc Honda GC190 engine and welded steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. The MS60921-S can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 10" pneumatic wheels.
Along with the Simpson MS60921-S itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The Simpson MS60921-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 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 convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The 5 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.
