Pressure Washers Direct Recommended

The MSH3125-S Simpson unit has a durable Honda GC engine, which has earned it's place at the top of the small engine heap for being quieter and easier to start than other engines in its class.

Amongst all of the consumer grade pressure washers we carry, this model has been by far the most reliable and durable pressure washer in this category.

Put it all together and you wind up with a very versatile pressure washer at a very reasonable price.

Absolutely Terrible
Ordered this unit hoping for a high quality piece of equipment for home use. Unit arrived with a kinked hose, which caused a small pin-hole water leak in the hose.

I proceeded to try to use it anyway, which quickly (after about 10 mins) turned the small pin-hole turned into a bulge, then the hose exploded. THIS WAS THE FIRST USE, unacceptable. VERY unsatisfied, after spending this much money I had higher expectations.

Dustin,
I apologize for the unit arriving with a damaged hose. I got in touch with Simpson, and they are sending a new hose directly to you. You should have it in a few days.

Again, I apologize for the damage and any questions give me a call directly at 800-710-7499. Thanks

Bad Start Good Ending
When the box arrived the top of the box showed oil had soaked through it. Yes, oil... After opening it up I had determined that the oil filler cap was loose, causing whatever oil remained in the engine compartment to come out. The instructions said the engine is empty of oil but I wouldn't expect it to be completely empty. I also wouldn't' expect it to have that much oil in it. I would also expect that handlers would read the side of the box that says "This end up"!

Works As Expected
I have used roughly 5-6 times since purchasing 2 months ago. So far, it has worked as expected. The only thing I can't figure out is why the pressure relief valve continues to emit water, even when it is in use.

Prior to purchasing, I had borrowed a Simpson from my son-in-law and was impressed by how well it worked. This was a major factor in my decision.

The unit starts easy and is very powerful.

Alan,
I'm glad you are pleased with your pressure washer! You may want to give the folks at Simpson a call at 877-362-4271 to talk to them about the valve; they will be able to help you decide if it's a simple adjustment or a Factory Warranty issue.

Please have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call Simpson, just in case they ask for it.

Thank you for your business!

I needed a better PW to replace my electric one. I chose this one for the price and the Honda engine. I put it together in 10 minutes added gas and went to work on my sidewalks.

I also bought the turbo tip with this and it doubles the amount of work you can get done in short time. It took just a minute to show my wife how to operate it and off she went. We love it and it has performed perfectly.

Pressure Dropped Off
After using this pressure washer for a weekend, the pressure has dropped off considerably. On first use, you could feel the pressure pushing back against your hand and arm when squeezing the trigger. Now there is no push back and you can even place your hand in the spray in front of the nozzle, which I would have never considered doing when it had max pressure.

Is there a pressure adjustment that I am unaware of? I have read the manual and could not find a pressure adjustment on the machine.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Wayne,
There isn't a pressure adjustment- spray pressure is controlled by which nozzle you choose. The first thing to check if the pressure drops is the water supply. Page 15 of the Owner's Manual shows a filter screen where the garden hose attaches. Please check and make sure that isn't clogged with grit or debris.

If your water source is a well, the garden hose length can only be 30 ft. maximum. If you have city water your supply hose can be longer, but using a narrow gauge hose over a long length (or uphill) can also starve the pump of the backpressure it needs to operate properly. You can try a shorter and/or larger diameter garden hose.

The only other thing I can think of is to make sure you squeeze the trigger and let water run through the unit before starting the engine. This purges all the air out of the pump (and will make it easier to start as well).

If none of these tips help, you will want to give the folks at Simpson Tech Support a call, toll free, at 877-362-4271. Please be sure to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them in case they ask for it.

1 Star For Quality, 0 Star For Customer Service
I have a 3 month old Simpson and it is the worst product I have used. Following my story that I told the Simpson service guys. But the response is precious. Essentially it says, if the engine is not working and Honda does not cover it, go talk to the gas company. So I am about to call CEO of BP now :-).

Here is the issue that I had:

When I first got this item in August, I had started it up and it worked fine till it ran out of gas. After filling the gas, it was almost impossible to start... more
Cons: Low Quality, Durability, Unreliable, Difficult To Use
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Anuj,
I saw this review on your file; I believe it is a copy of an email that you sent to the folks at Simpson. Our email to you on 11/20 said: "I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with your Simpson pressure washer. Per your statement the machine ran fine on first start up and ran fine through the first tank of fuel; so there was no issue with the machine when it was purchased and delivered ."

The engine is warranted through the folks at Honda; their decisions are based on their tech's report. MDA muddied the waters since any residual gas from setup and testing would have run through with the first tank of gas, when you said the unit worked fine.

A small amount of gasoline sitting for 3 or 4 months (August thru November) will lose most of it's volatile compounds, and can separate into water and varnish- "bad gas". That's what could be gumming up your carb if you didn't use a fuel stabilizer either in your gas can or the tank of the pressure washer. A Pump Saver product (any brand) should also be used if the unit is going to sit idle for more than 30 days.

Factory Warranties cover defects in materials or workmanship. With respect, a stuck carb float from bad gas isn't a defect. To avoid future issues we suggest using fuel stabilizer in your gasoline storage containers and Pump Saver product in your pressure washer.

Glad It's In One Piece
So far the product is great. The only problem I have is with the shipping. The power washer came fast but the packaging was terrible. Oil from the washer leaked in the box and by the time the box reached my front door it was ripped and falling apart.

I'm not sure if the issue is with Pressure Washers Direct, Simpson, or Federal Express. For the price of the equipment one would think the security during shipment would be more of a priority.

If you're like me you anguish over buying home improvement/maintenance equipment. I gave up on the flashy/cheap residential brands long ago, and try to stay within the pro-consumer/contractor boundary. My small farm EATS equipment, so I do my research (some would say too much) and eventually make the purchase. Such was the case with buying a new pressure washer to replace my 8 year old (electric) Karcher.

For readers of this review, I'd like to chime in with the information that consumer-grade electric pressure washers do need to be turned off during lag times or they'll overheat. It's the water rushing through that keeps the pump cool.

This is my first pressure washer and I was told that Simpson was a great brand. The pressure washer starts very easily and you need an extension wand and other high pressure nozzles for the 2nd floor to clean your home.

The real negative of this pressure washer is that it vibrates and spins when on a hard surface. When you use any cleaner, you need another person to hold the hose in the cleaner as the vibration and spinning of the washer will knock over the cleaner. This is a major... more

Jimbo,
You may want to try bracing the wheels when your pressure washer is on a hard surface to keep it from spinning.

You wouldn't need to buy actual wheel chocks- something like a chunk of wood in front of one wheel and another chunk behind the other wheel should keep the pressure washer steady.

I have only used it a couple times but so far it is a great machine for the money.

I wish the hose was longer. The nozzle for soap is plastic should be metal like the rest, mine has blown off a couple times.

I compared this machine with others and this is the best bang for the buck.

Lasted Twenty Minutes
Purchased it from a chain store last Black Friday. Stayed in box till last weekend. Within 20 minuted of use, there was a separation between the silver and gold parts of the engine and the water flowed out like a fire hydrant. The store gave me my money back, although I'm considering giving it another try.

I assumed the Honda engine would be bullet proof, so I'm not sure if I should try a Briggs and Stratton, etc
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Robert,
With respect, if water came out perhaps it was the pump that separated from the engine? Water doesn't run through the engine on any of the gas units I am familiar with.

Honda engines have earned their reputation as the best on the market. There are, however, different grades of Honda engine that may affect your buying decision. Their "GC" engine that's on this unit is consumer grade. It's a good engine and will perform fine for most homeowner tasks.

The Honda "GX" engines are commercial grade and have heavier duty components and will last longer- but they are more expensive.

Simply Simpson
Previously had a similar pressure washer with Honda engine that I used for 13 years. This unit has so far lived up to my expectations from Honda. Fill it up with oil, hook up the water and away we go. Started first crank and the 3200 psi really does the job and the unit moves around so easy.

I take care of two locations, my main house which is stucco and my vacation home on the river which is 100% wood with lots of deck, so you can imagine how often I use a pressure washer. Love it!

Good So Far
So far I am happy with the msh-3125-s...the arrival had similar issues as have been stated before, there were oIl stains on the box and some oil on the machine. No big deal to me...I just wiped it up.

The machine started fine and ran fine. Pressure washes like a champ. I would agree that the nozzle holder could use a redesign as it does not appropriately hold them while the machine is in use. I would purchase again.

Dud, Doa Out Of The Boxbox
Arrived with box saturated in oil from pump. Get to return.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Brent,
Sometimes there is residual oil left in the unit from testing. If the unit is tipped during shipping (even though it's marked "Do Not Tip") a small amount of oil can leak out. When the oil saturates the air filter, or gets in the spark plug well it will prevent the unit from starting- plus we know it's a mess to clean.

Your name and email address didn't match any of our orders. I would hope you refused the shipment since the box was showing the oil damage. The next step would be to contact the folks you bought it from so they could have another one shipped out.

Shipping damage isn't covered by Factory Warranty, but if you need to talk to the folks at Simpson their toll-free number is 877-362-4271.

Definitely A Great Buy
I just purchased this pressure washer and have been using it a lot. It starts the first pull every time and has some serious power. Very easy to move around and I would recommend it to anyone.

I have owned my fair share of pressure washers and this is bar none the best one I have purchased. Very easy to do maintenance on as far as changing oil and cleaning the air filter.

For the price it's a steal and I bought it off line and it was at my doorstep in 4 days. By this model and you... more

Nice Little Package...
This is a nicely put-together pressure washer. All the right features in a nice, small, but well-built unit.

The only time it took more than one pull to start it was the very first time I used it, and even then it was only two pulls.

Great pressure! I love it.

Megashot 3100
The MegaShot worked flawless on my driveway, walk and a few other projects.

The only big improvement/drawback is Simpson should have made is a clutch or manual lever (on all its powerwashers) that disconnects the pump from the motor ie: power takeoff . That way the Honda engine can run without the pump running water continuously .

Works Great
I've used it a couple of times and it works great.

Only problem is getting the RV Antifreeze to get sucked in the water inlet. When I pull the cord, more than a few times, the Antifreeze stays in the short garden hose!

I called a local dealer and he could not say I was doing anything wrong. Any suggestions?
Jack Recommends This Simpson Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Jack,
The Pump Saver products we sell are made specifically for pressure washers- the are thin enough to load properly while still effectively lubricating the seals in your pump and excluding water from behind the seals to prevent freeze damage.

The RV product you are using may be too thick to be drawn completely through the pressure washer pump. I have no way of knowing if diluting it would reduce it's effectiveness- adding water may create more problems than it solves.

Using a product that isn't meant for pressure washers could also interfere with the Factory Warranty on this unit. It might be more cost effective in the long run to use a pressure washer Pump Saver product (any brand) to store your unit.

Timothy,
I am sorry you didn't read through the Owner's Manual for the engine. Page 7 of the Honda Owner's Manual shows & describes how to check the oil before use- it details pulling out the dipstick, wiping it, re-inserting it and then pulling it out again to check the level- just like a car.

Honda tests their engines before shipment, but then has to drain them so they are safe to put on a truck. There will be some oil left in the engine case which is why they tell you to wipe the dipstick when you check the oil level. They include a copy of the Owner's Manual with the pressure washer, there's a copy on the Honda small engine website, and we have a downloadable copy on the product page.

Factory Warranties only cover defects in materials and workmanship. I'm sorry, but they don't cover problems that are caused by not following the instructions in the Owner's Manual.

Product Expert
Jonathan,
I checked your file, and I don't see where you called us; was it Simpson you contacted? Your hose and spray gun are covered by the factory warranty for 30 days, so getting a replacement from them shouldn't have been a problem.

If it was a Return Authorization you were waiting for (no matter who it was from) you may want to check your Junk Mail folder- sometimes they wind up there. If you didn't get the return information at all, please call Simpson at 877-362-4271 again to follow up. Please also have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them in case they ask for it.

If you still don't get the return authorization, please call us at 866-618-9274 or email us at 'service@pressurewashersdirect.com' and we will ask our sales rep at Simpson to step in and assist.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Pressure washer arrived quickly and well packed, ordered extra hose and m22 hose to hose adapter and extension wand. Wand was shown with trigger gun adapter tried several times to share with tech the part I needed still to this day do not have part to complete my set up and begin psi washing my property. Will end up at the big box store before I can begin psi washing the part I needed is #2510103 tired of trying will report on Simpson Megashot 3100 psi later.
Pros: Compact
Cons: Difficult To Use, Handle Makes It Hard To Move

Kevin,
I checked your file, and I see where you reported your spray lance arrived damaged and we sent out a no-charge replacement that was delivered to your front door yesterday (8/22). We also replaced the D10040 M22 male-to-male hose adapter from your order, although since they are solid brass they usually don't get damaged.

The Simpson 80185 Spray Lance you ordered doesn't come with an adapter, according to the description we got from the folks at Simpson. You can order General Pump Deep Cavity M22 to 1/4" FNPT Adapter 2510103 from us if you'd like, we try to keep it in stock.

Simpson will cover wear & tear items like hoses under their Factory Warranty for the first 30 days after delivery. You may want to give them a call before 7/28 at 877-362-4271 so they can send you a replacement.

Please also make sure the hose isn't coming in contact with the hot engine muffler- that can also cause a bubble, and wouldn't be considered a warranty issue.

Good Performer At A Good Price
My Simpson MegaShot 3100 pressure washer arrived in Michigan 2 days after a Sunday afternoon order placement. The box was in perfect shape as were the contents.

This washer is very easy to set up and it started in 2 pulls. The only feature I didn't like is it vibrates just enough to scatter nozzles out of their rubber nesting. I will use a piece of elastic Velcro to prevent losing the nozzles in the grass. It also needs a simple way to hang a solution bottle but I will deal with before... more

Great Pressure Washer!
Before purchasing any large appliance or vehicle, I research the product. I was happy to see that many people gave this pressure washer a good rating. I have always been a Honda engine person as their engines have never failed me.

The pressure washer was delivered safely in a large box well-protected and well packaged. It was easy to assemble with good instructions.

I use my pressure washer mainly for washing the patio and cleaning my mowers. It is also great for cleaning garden tools. more

Usually you can double the length of the original hose with minimal fall-off in pressure; at 3 times the length there could be enough fall-off that you'd notice it.

When you emailed us last month about this, we suggested :

I'm sorry, but we do not sell replacement o-rings here, I suggest trying a website like www.pressureparts.com"

You may also want to give the folks at Simpson a call, toll free, at 877-362-4271 to see if they have the piece you need. O-rings are usually considered wear items, so please be aware that it might not be covered by the Factory Warranty past the first 30 days.

Just Right
Luv my new Simpson Mega Shot 3100 PSI Pressure Washer. Starts up on one or two pulls and has plenty of power for the average home owner or small business.

Big advantage of this model is the larger gas tank compared to other models (almost .5 gal) so less time stopping to refuel. Like other reviews wish the pressure hose was of better quality but you just need to keep the hose straight to avoid any kinks.

Plenty of power compared to older model this model replaced which was about a 1/3... more

Matt,
I am sorry to hear you're having problems with your pressure washer. It's the busy season for pressure washer repair and I know how inconvenient that can be- but Federal Regulations won't allow an engine to be re-shipped once it's been fueled since it's a fire/explosion hazard.

If you feel that you aren't being treated fairly by the repair shop, please contact me directly at 800-710-7499 or
service@pressurewashersdirect.com' with the name, address, and phone number of the Authorized Warranty shop, along with the name of the person that's helping you. I'll be happy to get our contact at Simpson to step in and smooth out any wrinkles.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for the inconvenience.

My Simpson MSH3125-S Pressure Washer arrived with all parts and everything seemed to be in order. I did notice some residual oil on the High Pressure Hose and spotting inside the box (maybe 1 or 2 tablespoons at most- no biggie.)

After assembling, servicing, and hooking up the water supply, the Honda engine would not start. Problem was someone floated the air cleaner in oil. I've never seen or heard of this type of issue before.

Ed,
There can be residual oil from testing left in the unit, which shouldn't be a problem unless the box is tipped during shipping- then it can find it's way into the air filter.

We will work with the folks at FedEX to improve service in your area. We appreciate your business, and apologize for the messy air filter.

Just As Expected
I have been researching pressure washers and the Simpson MSH-3125-S kept coming up as one of the best. Decided to purchase it and it has been a wonderful product.

Starts easily, simple to use right out of the box. Was delivered on time and all the parts were with it.

Only thing I wish they would do is put a clear strip in the gas tank so you know when you are low on gas and to figure out how to keep the extra nozzles from vibrating out of their holding spots. Not a big deal though.

The pressure washer arrived and assembled just as advertised. Looks good, starts good , and works good.

I also ordered a 15 inch surface cleaner. Surprise!! Doesn't work! The nozzles aren't both angled the same and it doesn't spin. I assume that is the problem but it simply doesn't work. Did they not check it before shipping?

A little disappointed.

Not Happy
I used the power washer 1 time. Two days later went and bought sealer for my driveway when I started my power washer the pump was not working so I called Simpson like I was told they gave me shop by my house that covers there pumps for them they they said Simpson will send a new pump but they are very slow doling so.

Now it is going over 2 weeks and here I sit not very happy with my power washer and wondering how long it is going to last when I get it back. First time to buying on line.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Greg,
If it helps I can tell you that the large majority of Simpson pressure washers we sell serve their owners very well- but I understand your concern.

I would hope that you've called the shop to check on your repair. Sometimes during the busy Spring season it is the squeaky wheel that gets the grease, and Simpson won't know to send the pump unless the shop has asked them to.

The second thing you could do since you have been waiting a fair amount of time is to call the folks at Simpson (877-362-4271) and let them know the name & phone number of the repair shop that has your unit, and the name of the person there that you are speaking to. They should be able to contact the shop and move things along if need be.

If that doesn't get things moving, then please send the name and phone of the shop, along with the name of the person there that you're working with, to me at 'service@pressurewashersdirect.com'. I will ask our sales rep at Simpson to step in and resolve the delay.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for the inconvenience!

Happy With This Purchase
Received this earlier this month (April 2016). Very happy with its performance.

So far power washed our second home and its peeling deck. The place has well water with fairly low water pressure so we were a bit concerned when we heard you should not use more than 30' of water supply hose. We needed to connect to a 100 feet of hose. One thing that may have help was the first hose was 5/8" then connected down to a 1/2" hose which may have helped enhance the pressure.

So Far, So Good
So far so good. All of the parts were there and everything went together easily. I have used it to pressure wash my sidewalk, driveway, and deck.

My last pressure washer was a two stroke 2700 PSI. The extra pressure actually made a difference, it doesn't use as much gas, and it is quieter. The big tires are nice as well.

The only annoying downside is that the nozzles will not stay in the holder. That is pretty annoying and I would think that it would be easily corrected by the... more

Great Little Machine
I've had this washer for two weeks and have used it almost everyday. I has worked very well on driveways, house, garage, etc.. . Starts easy and does what I need.

The only draw back is the very (too short) wand. I tried to use an attachment to scrub my garage floor and it killed my back. I went to a Big Box store and spent $20 more dollars on a longer wand that works much better. It's hard to believe they would put such a junky wand on such a nice washer.

Great Value
My old washer had 13 years on it and only had 2700 psi so I decided to upgrade.

I did considerable research and purchased the Simpson MSH3125-S. Has a Honda 190 cc engine which starts easily. It comes with 4 quick connect nozzles, 0, 15, 25 and 40 degrees as well as a soap dispensing nozzle. The zero nozzle has very little utility where the 40 is good on wood while the 15 and 25 work well on concrete.

Pros: Honda engine, good pressure, compact design and good air filled tires.

We bought this unit for a 10 plex condo and it has performed well above expectations. It is extremely powerful.

Performed very well on outside walls and walkways and on pool deck. Definitely recommended.

Two features that could be improved Is the location of the oil change valve and the handle is too short and awkward to push or pull if you are tall.

Engine Doesn't Start On My Second Use
I purchased this pressure washer couple of weeks ago, and today I had some time to give the washer a go. I filled the engine with the provided Engine Oil, filled up the gas and it started on the 1st pull.

Later, that day I wanted to do a quick car wash so I set everything up and nothing- engine does not start. I contacted Siimpson customer service and they said I can return the product or go to a service location near by. Too bad today is a weekend and can't get a hold of any service... more
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Jason,
I understand your frustration, and I'm sorry you couldn't get the unit going over the weekend.

Something you may want to try is pulling the trigger on the spray gun and letting water run through the unit for a couple minutes before you try starting the engine. This drives out all the air from the pump, and prevents vapor lock. It's Step 8 on Page 3 of the Owner's Manual.

The pump and the engine are connected- if the pump can't turn, the engine can't turn over either.

There are also some Troubleshooting Tips on page 20 of your Owner's Manual.
Engine will not start (see Engine Manual for further engine troubleshooting):
No fuel- Add Fuel.
Pressure builds up after two pulls on the recoil starter or after initial use- Squeeze gun trigger to relieve pressure.
Choke lever in the "No Choke" position- Move choke to the "Choke" position.
Spark plug wire not attached- Attach spark plug wire.
Engine switch in OFF position- Place engine switch in ON position.
Choke lever in the "Choke" position on a "hot" engine or an engine that has been exposed to thermal heat for a long period of time- Move choke to the "No Choke" position.

I hope one of these tips will help and save you the trip to a service location. If you do wind up having to take the unit in, and there's more than one service location in your area, you may want to call them ahead of time and find out who can turn around your repair in the shortest amount of time.

Excellent Machine
Purchase was simple, delivered quickly, simple set up and the pressure washer actually exceeded my expectations, just a bit.

While I've only used it a couple of times so far, I'd expect it to be running strong for a long time.

Have only used this washer a few times but am sure I'm going to be well pleased with it. It's quite compact and simple to use and store. With the multiple supplied easily changed nozzles there seems to be one for any job.

Could Not Be Happier
Have only used it once, but it has met all my expectations.

Compact, breaks down easily and easy to handle and move about. Hose and and spray nozzle handle attaches easily and securely to unit. Attaching is easy and very accessible.

A plus, is that l can buy DeWalt power washer accessories at big box stores as Simpson makes all, or at least most of their units.

Built in the U.S.A. and powered by a Honda engine! What more could l ask for?

William,
The nice part about larger pressure washers is that as long as you stay within the PSI and GPM requirements, accessories are interchangeable with any brand as long as the connectors match.

What The...?
About 15 minutes into use, the pump blew apart. One bolt sheared, and others blew out of the pump housing where the silver part bolts to the pump. A piece of the pump broke off. Up to that point, things were wonderful. What luck.

Of course I can't exchange it. I have to wait for the podunk repair shop to evaluate, submit, get approval, see if warranty will cover, order parts, replace the parts, etc.... and of course, as of a week after I dropped it off to them, they have not looked at it... more

Stacey,
I apologize for the issues you are having with the Simpson unit. However, the unit can't be shipped back due to Federal Shipping regulations on Gassed items. This is why everything we carry comes with a full manufacturer warranty. It is pressure washing season, so many of the service centers are busy.

With that being said, they will take a look at the unit and make the necessary repairs as long as it is covered under the warranty and nothing was used improperly. Again, I apologize for the issues you are having, and if you are unsatisfied with their findings, give me a call directly at 800-710-7499.

I Definitely Do Not Have Buyer's Remorse
I borrowed my buddy's power washer to do some home work i.e. mold and just plain cleaning and I wasn't satisfied with his 2300 PSI, 2.0 GPM because it wasn't powerful enough to clean the wood deck well.

SO, I bought this model and I AM TOTALLY SATISFIED! I was scared at first about buyer's remorse lol, but once I cranked it up and got it started, I felt like I had power in my hands!

I felt like taking it on a test run on that stubborn stain on my wood and BAM GONE. I WIN! lol.

Good Power Washer, But...
Everything that was said about the Honda engine is correct. It's easy to start with plenty of power. The design of the Simpson leaves me wondering what they were thinking. The machine vibrates so much that on concrete, when using the full spray, it spins around 360 degrees and tangles up the hose around the washer. I had a craftsman 2400 pis for 15 years and had zero issues like this.
Would appreciate knowing if there is an adjustment that can be made.

Bills Recommendation
The Megashot is a great choice for folks with large projects in mind. The 3100 PSI and 2.5 GPM make short work of estate homes, broad expanses of pool decks and patios, etc.

The Honda engine is quiet and reliable, and their reputation for being easy to start is well deserved.

The sturdy cart is well balanced, and the low profile makes it easier to wheel around and store.

Engine started right away and has lots of pressure for home use. It is very rugged with large wheels and steel rims. Very easy to maneuver around rough terrain!

I had bought the generac 3000psi and although it was good the non flat tire came off as I went down stairs so I took it back to a big box store and bought this one. Much happier!!!

45 Minutes
This is the second Simpson in 2 months that's averaged 45 minutes before it broke.
First one bought at Costco and returned, started leaking oil through the water input fixture.

Upgraded to the 6598, which ran great for 45 minutes. Then the engine and pressure started pulsating, so I checked the gas.

The gas was full, so I checked the oil and found water in it. I returned it to TSC. Luckily both broke quickly and the retailers took them back.

I used the pressure washer one time and it quit working. I had to go and buy a new spray handle at a cost of $50.00 and another $15.00 for parts to get the new wand hooked up.

I would not recommend that anyone buy this product unless you're ready to spend more money for replacing the spray handle.

Cons: Unreliable, Haa, Does Not Siphon Soap Detergent
John Recommends This Simpson Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
John,
Pages 13 & 14 of the Owner's Manual show how to properly attach the siphon hose, and to use the black spray tip that allows the siphon action to happen. Soap is only applied at low pressure.

If you've got the siphon hose hooked up properly & you're using the black tip but soap isn't flowing, you may need to check what you're using for soap. It should be labeled pressure washer safe so it doesn't eat through the pump seals, and it should also be diluted according to the maker's instructions.

The soap solution needs to be fairly watery so the siphon hose can suck it up; if it's thick like dish detergent it won't siphon properly. Some pressure washer safe detergents can be used straight from the bottle, some need to be mixed with water before they're used.

But the pumps are different. The Simpson's OEM pump is much more powerful and smoother running than the Karcher.

Carlton,
I understand your disappointment and apologize for any inconvenience. As we explain in the Return Policy link at the bottom of every page of our web site, it is Federal Law that does not allow re-shipping an engine that has had gasoline in it, since it poses a fire/explosion hazard.

If you didn't get an Owner's Manual for the Honda GC190 engine, you can download one by clicking on this Honda GC190 link. It will have details about the engine controls and basic troubleshooting that you may find helpful.

If that doesn't help, any Authorized Honda Small Engine Service location can do Factory Warranty work. I checked the Honda Small Engine website, and they list Forestry Supply 236 Frank Rd Fitzgerald, GA 31750-9011 (229)423-3426 as the closest to your zip code, but you may want to check the Yellow Pages or Google for a closer location.

I bought the Megashot 3100 based on the reviews and am completely satisfied. After two electric pressure washers that were so-so, I decided that a gas engine was the next logical step.

I used the 3100 to clean a deck, siding on the house, brick paver sidewalk and a long driveway. It worked great in all circumstances.

Johnathan,
The suction hose does not need to be plugged up when you are using the unit. It will only siphon using the low pressure black spray tip. On the unit I have at home, I just roll it up, and tie a twist tie around it.

I believe the black cap you are referring to is just a cap that fits over the threads during shipping to protect them. Sometimes, as the unit travels, they get knocked off. No need to be concerned with this.

My only disappointment was the soap feature. I really wanted the high pressure (or higher pressure) soap feature to quickly wash the cars. The soap nozzle disperses the soap over the car but I still have to hand wash. I guess it's for soaping with detergents that have to soak and don't require high pressure.

Dale,
Most pressure washers dispense soap at low pressure. Using the black tip opens the valve to the soap siphon and allows the water rushing by to draw the soap up into the water stream. Low pressure prevents driving soap deep into cracks where it would be difficult to rinse out.

If you'd like a nice layer of foam for car washing, take a look at this Detergent Foamer from MTM Hydro. The video shows how well it works washing cars quickly.

If it's the garden hose that is giving you problems, getting a quick-connect kit from the hardware store will save the threads and your knuckles- they usually run about $5 for plastic and under $10 for brass. We sell Garden Hose Quick Connect Kits, but you would also pay shipping from us- it might be less expensive to get the connectors locally.

If it's the high pressure hose that is tough to connect, then an M22 Quick Connect Kit will change the threaded M22 threaded connector to a snap-in quick connector.

After reading many of the reviews, I have concluded that if you buy the Simpson Megashot, you have a 50% chance of getting a lemon. If you get the lemon, it sounds like company makes a "lemonade fix" by not being able to quickly replace parts or resolve problems. I would not want to take a chance buying this model and you may be hurting your Customer Relations by selling such a pressure washer!

I apologize for the fitting being the wrong size. We removed that turbo nozzle out of the accessories tab and have not been recommending the turbo nozzle for that unit. The fittings on the MTM Hydro will not fit Simpson or Generac pressure washers. The part will be delivered on Tuesday of next week.

As far as the hose, the 1/4" diameter hose comes on all consumer grade pressure washers to save on manufacturing costs. I would recommend jumping up to a 5/16" hose if you are unhappy. I apologize for the issues.

On its second use, I've got no water coming out of the gun once the engine is started. Pressure just builds. Flows fine when off so not clogged. Tried replacing gun, same problem.

This is the single worst purchase I've made all year.

Good Machine
1) Owners manual states the engine oil capacity is 20 ounces, but the machine comes with 16 ounces.
Adding the 16 ounces it came with, plus another 4 ounces overfilled the engine. Apparently, after test running the engine and draining it to be shipped, at least 4 ounces of oil were left in the crankcase.

2) Honda engines are known to start easily and this one is no exception. Added oil & fuel, choked it and it was running after the second pull.

Waiting A Month Now
I still can't use my Simpson pressure washer. It arrived a month ago without any nozzles in the shipment. I immediately contacted them about the missing nozzles, was promised they'd be shipped out and received in 7 to 10 days, but on day 13, I contacted them again saying the nozzles never arrived, and then on day #13 I was told there is a delay and the nozzles would be shipped out on day #13. I'm still waiting, and so the pressure washer sits in my garage unused.

Ed,
Again we apologize for the delay in shipping out the replacement nozzles, it does appear the nozzles have shipped and you should have them any day if not already. Please let us know if you need anything else and again we apologize for this inconvenience.

Impressive So Far...
I am a normal guy, Joe Homeowner.... And all I had done so far was borrow my father-in-law's pressure sprayer every spring to spray the moss/algae/gunk off my cement patio and wooden deck.

So I did some research, bit the bullet, and sprung for this $400 sprayer... (I was expecting to pay $250-$300...).

This past weekend, I broke it in with a good 4-5 hour session cleaning off my patio. Then last night, I went for another hour and a half.

I must say... Its pretty impressive. Simple to... more

Excellence
I have had a few pressure washers for home use, and this is the best one yet ! The extra 300 PSI over what I had makes a difference.

The only thing I don't like is that it did not come with a pressure regulator. I didn't realize that until I put it together. The others I've owned had one.

I had to order the Dial-N-Wash. I need the yellow pattern but need to turn the pressure down to clean my pool filters.

I have only had the Simpson for a month or so but, believe it to be a very good product. Pressure washed a large driveway and few other items. It starts easily,it was easy to assemble, it arrived within 4 or 5 days of order.

The instructions are a little conflicted on the water pump, it says not to service the water pump, but also states to drain the water pump and fill with antifreeze in the winter.

Terrible Shipping
Shipped direct from the factory. Came with all the parts, but leaking oil.

The oil then soaked the filter, which impeded air flow and wouldn't allow it to run or start.

I not only had to buy oil, but a new filter too and had to clean the entire unit which was dripping in oil. When it does work, it works well.

Engine is great, plenty of power. Hose is a bit stiff and gets tangled a bit.

Plenty Of Power At A Value Price
I was looking for that magic combination of durability, power and reasonable price. I did my research and I believe I found it. One of the main applications I wanted it for was the ability to clean an old concrete driveway. This has plenty of power for that. As a matter of fact, be careful because any loose material can quickly be dislodged. I blasted some loose mortar right out of my brick walkway before I got used to managing the powerful spray. It is suitable for any task a homeowner might... more

I have had a 1400 psi pressure washer for 10 years. Living in western Washington, we get a lot of rain and moss. I could not keep up with the moss using my old pressure washer. The Simpson 3100 psi was like driving a sports car compared to the VW I have been using. What used to take me all day to clean, now takes hours. My back is not hurting and I have cleaned more concrete drive and sidewalk than ever in one season. It is that powerful.

Works Great, But Handle Was Slightly Bent
Power washer works great... Starts easily, hooks up easily, and can be started and operated by my wife. My only disappointment was that my handle was slightly bent and had to be forced down onto the power washer to get it to stay.

It was not something that I wanted to go thru the hassle of a return for but it was a disappointment. Besides that I was completely pleased.

Works Great, Instructions Could Be A Little Better Though
Everything was delivered well and it fired up after just a few pulls. It seems that it is a requirement that there can be no pressure in the wand when trying to start the engine. This isn't emphasized in the manual and I would guess this would be a problem for most people.

When I tried to start up the 2nd time it wouldn't start. After a quick web search I found others talking about it. I squeezed the wand trigger, released the pressure and it started right up. Ran for a good hour with... more
Dennis Recommends This Simpson Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Dennis,
On Paige 15 of the manual, in start up procedures, there is a warning to depress the trigger gun when the engine does not start after 2 pulls. This is due to the pressure being built up from manually turning the pump while trying to start the engine.

This goes with all Pressure Washers. If you fail to relieve the pressure, the engine recoil could kick back causing injury. Please make sure the start up procedures are properly followed.

RISK OF UNSAFE OPERATION: If engine does not start after two pulls, squeeze trigger of gun to relieve pump pressure. Pull starter cord slowly until resistance is felt. Then pull cord rapidly to avoid kickback and prevent hand or arm injury.

After doing a lot of research I decided to but this Simpson unit. It is pretty much the top of the line in residential units. The next step up is a big one dollar wise.

I bought the washer to see if it could help take old paint off the house siding. It didn't work very well doing that job as once the narrow nozzles got through the paint the high water pressure tore up the soft wood below.

It did however work very well at cleaning our deck and teak furniture (with the more gentle tips). It took me about a week to clean the black age off the teak furniture with an orbital sander a few years ago, but only an hour to do the job with the washer. It set up... more

Simpson Pressure Washer
This Simpson pressure washer was very easy to put together. It took a few pulls and I was on my way. I used it to clean all my plastic lawn furniture that had gotten dirty with dirt over the past couple of years and I could not wipe off by hand with cleaners. This Simpson Megashot took off all the dirt in no time at all and the furniture looked brand new. For that reason alone it was worth the purchase.

Awesome Engine
The Honda motor starts on the 1st or 2nd pull every time.. My Troy Built required at least a dozen pulls to start and was almost impossible to start after it had been running for a while.

This Honda is also a much quieter running motor.. Maybe the best part is the fuel consumption.. It uses at least 2/3 less fuel than my Troy Built.. It's design is compact and extremely simple to service.. Very pleased with the value..

I had replaced the pump and wand on my old pressure washer about midway through it's useful life. After many years of faithful service I felt it was time to upgrade. I wanted something over 3000 PSI.

Did a fair amount of research and chose this unit. Am VERY happy with it. Lighter than my old unit, easier to transport at the job site, eaiser to load in my truck. Just a great improvement over my older unit.

Only problem I have is the nozzles viberate out of their holder on the frame.... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Nozzles Viberate Out Of Holder When Not In Use

Solid Pressure Washer
This is the perfect tool for cleaning the exterior of my house. For less than the cost of paying someone to do it for me once, I now own the tool. In addition to cleaning the siding ahead of painting, I've used it to clean any number of things that have gotten really dirty over time, from storage containers, to my generator, to the cars (nice to be able to blast the underside to clear salt from the winter.

the only negative for me is the hose it came with is not quite long enough for me... more

My Wife Loves Her New Power Washer!
I did the research, and this was the one that came out on top everywhere, and it did not let me down once I got it set up for my wife.

I couldn't rip it out of her hands. She loves it, and it's powerful. It is so easy to use. Shipping was fast and the product was great.

Very good experience. I'm going back to this company again for my next purchase. Thanks everyone.

Works great. Had a little trouble getting it started initially. Turns out the machine tipped over during shipping, or in some way, oil permeated the air filter. I could not get the machine to run until I cleaned the spark plug after flooding it, and replaced the oil soaked oil filter.

Since then it has started easily, and done a great cleaning job. I had borrowed a similar washer, Karcher brand, from a friend, and like this one better. It is a lower profile and easier to slide into the... more

Great Value
I did a lot of research and Pressure Washers Direct had exactly what I wanted. Quality with a Honda Engine.

I have used it for a total of 16 hours and love every min of using it. The only thing I would change is extending the wand a bit. This thing purrs like a kitten and starts on the first pull, HOT or Cold.

This pressure washer does it all: dirty motorbikes, moldy decks, stained concrete. It gets the job done in less time, and everything looks great.

The different nozzles make it work awesome for each type of cleaning. I live in the forest in the Pacific Northwest, and this pressure washer is a tool I wish I had years ago.

A Lot Of Features For The Money
My first gas powered washer. It sure beats the electric ones I have had in the past. If you stop it you have to remember to pull the trigger on the wound to release the water pressure. If you don't, the built-up pressure keep's the pull to start rope from starting the motor. There is nothing in the outdated instruction manual about this step. Make sure the colored wound tips are on completely and fitted tight or when you pull the trigger it can fly quit a distance and be hard to find. A very... more

So Far, So Good
Haven't had the pressure washer very long. The few times I have used it, I have been happy with the results. The wheel came off the first time I used it.

The clip that holds the wheel on must have been loose. I used wire to temporary repair it. It has enough pressure to do most jobs. I would not want one with less pressure or volume flow.

Ok For Price
Honda engine is what sold me. Works as advertised. Everything was OK except for the following:
-frame handle kind of crude difficult to extend simple thing like that could benefit from better engineering.
-like others have commented, hose is pretty stiff.
-like others have commented, keep gas cap loose or it will vapor lock.
-little clumsy to start in that you need to keep the trigger depressed while keeping one foot on the frame and pulling the start chord.
Hope it lasts for a long time.

One of the advantages of buying at Lowes is that when you get one of the "lemons" it's not a pain to get a replacement.
I have been wrestling my Simpson all summer...runs for about 5 min....clearly not working properly. I read the reviews and they were all good...but the one that got shipped to me has something going on. No way I should be having issues with a pressure washer less than 1 yr old

I was a full time painting contractor in the past and had a top of the line power washer with a Simpson pump in it. Ran great but cost around $1,000 back 14 years ago. I got out of the business in '04, sold everything including the power washer to help me be able to afford getting through my first year as a Realtor. Decided to get back into painting this year but did not have the budget to buy the big pressure washer yet. This one does not have as much oomph as my old one but that is what I... more

I Love It!
I especially like the side mounted hose connections. My old pressure washer's pump and hose connections were mounted under the frame. As a result the pump housing became damaged during transport and caused the unit to fail. The pneumatic tires and balanced frame make it real easy to transport. The motor is only 30cc's larger than my old one, but the pressure washer is way more powerful. I love it!
