We will also cover a few of the projects and chores that you can handle and check off your to-do list with one of these outstanding machines.

What Is a Simpson Pressure Washer?

Simpson is a name synonymous with high-quality pressure washers. Simpson pressure washers are designed and manufactured for residential and home shops as well as for commercial and industrial applications. Simpson pressure washers are great for the do-it-yourself homeowner seeking high performance at a reasonable price or the business entrepreneur who needs high performance day in and day out. 

Simpson pressure washers are equipped with Honda, Kohler or Simpson OHV engines and manufactured with high-quality components. They are designed for ideal performance and renowned for being quick and easy to start. Axial cam pumps with patent-pending technology provide high pressure from the nozzle, resulting in greater force of impact and cleaning performance.

Typical uses for Simpson Pressure Washers include cleaning your fences, driveways, fences, and siding. You can prep and clean surfaces you are about to paint. You can clean cars, boats and other recreational vehicles as well as farm and industrial equipment. There are also Internet accounts of people using pressure washers for peeling potatoes, getting balls out of trees, and slicing fruit, to name just a few of the less conventional uses for products like this.

Product Specs

Like all Simpson pressure washers, the SIMPSON MegaShot 3100 PSI @ 2.4 GPM really delivers in performance and simplicity of use. Its small footprint makes it easy to store and easy to maneuver, so it is ideal for any homeowner to keep on hand for any pressure cleaning chores that pop up.

The Kohler engine is reliable, efficient, and designed for high performance. That makes cleaning siding, fences, walkways, decks, driveways, patios and, of course, your car and boat a breeze. Those usually dreaded, difficult chores not only get done faster but far better.  The MS60763 comes with a 25-foot hose, an ergonomic spray gun, and 5 Quick-Connect nozzles, each designed with a specific need or task in mind.

Pricing 

The price range is from $300 to $750, depending on the capabilities and performance of each machine. The average homeowner can spend less on a machine with a lower pressure and lower water usage and still get great results for typical residential applications. At the higher end of the scale, you get more pressure, higher water volume, and industrial cleaning capabilities. The choices, decisions, and trade-offs are yours to make and we hope this review will help you decide which is right for you and your Simpson pressure washer needs.
