Zoom on the Simpson PS60869

The Simpson PS60869, a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • precise spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and effectively removing stubborn stains
  • comprehensive cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and readying surfaces for painting
  • soft cleaning of delicate surfaces, and gentle cleaning for larger areas with low pressure
  • utilizing cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces clean

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 PS60869 in use

The Simpson PS60869

Using a powerful 270cc (9 hp) engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of up to 4000 PSI (roughly 67 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 3.5 GPM (CETA-certified values). When these values are taken together, they yield a cleaning power of 14000 Cleaning Units.

For this gas-powered pressure washer, the Honda GX270 engine is started using a time-tested pull-start mechanism.

Fuel for the pressure washer is housed in a steel tank capable of holding up to 1.6 gallon of gasoline..

Design & Handling

With its wheelbarrow-inspired design, the Simpson PS60869 aims for excellent mobility and stability, enabling effortless maneuvering and dependable performance across diverse environments. The welded steel frame's robustness ensures the assembly's longevity, maintaining stability and protecting internal components, even in the harshest environments. The handle adds to the PS60869 convenience of transport.

At 120 lbs, we can't really say that the unit is lightweight, and manually lifting or transporting it could be a significant challenge for users, especially if they need to move it frequently or navigate over uneven terrain. The main contributors to its weight are its 270cc Honda GX270 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame. Despite this, the presence of two 13" pneumatic wheels reduces the complexity of moving the PS60869, even on rugged surfaces.

Main Features

The Simpson PS60869 in use

The Simpson PS60869

The Simpson PS60869's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Despite the absence of a soap tank, detergent supply is facilitated through the use of a siphon hose. Once a soap nozzle is connected, the pressure washer automatically blends the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of convenient hooks, the unit provides a convenient way to store the included 50 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose when not in use, keeping it organized and readily accessible.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: Review the table below to learn about the 5 included nozzles and the surfaces they're recommended for.
