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.

Product Failed Miseably
Purchased this product after much research. Needed it for one specific job. Worked great until I shut it off and could not start it again. Very disappointed. Honda was always my motor of choice. This has got me in a spot with a half finished job.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Unreliable

Paul,
I am so sorry you're having problems re-starting the unit! 2 quick things to try- pull the spray gun trigger and let water run through the gun before you try to start it. This drives out any air from the pump and clears up vapor lock that will stop the engine from turning over.

The other thing to quickly try is to loosen the gas cap & let air in the tank before starting the engine. Sometimes debris will block the vent in the gas cap. As gas is used it creates a vacuum in the tank and starves the engine of gas. If this is the case you may be able to clear the vent with a paperclip, or call the folks at Simpson at 877-362-4271 for a replacement cap.

If neither of these quick-fixes helps, please give the folks at Simpson a call (877-362-4271) for further troubleshooting. Please also have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them in case they ask for it.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Awesome Machine, Quick Assembly, Easy To Operate
So far I really like the machine, quickly assembled and operated in no time, well built and easy to maneuver around. The machine is powerful enough to do cleaning all around the house. Stop wasting money by calling a pressure washer guy every year, now the right machine to do the job! You can watch my YouTube unboxing and using it.

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"!

Initial 2.5hrs Of Use & Pump Breaks
Great Honda motor, but the pump is made of composite metals that make it not as strong as other pumps on market. I didn't know this until using it for 2.5hrs and the bolt that keeps the pump together was snapped off by pressure and heat. My job was just over half done. It is currently being serviced at a warranty shop nearby. However, the same crappy pump will be put back on it.

Sales guy said you really want an all brass pump, its the only kind they sell. It handles the heat way better. He... more

I've now used this unit for probably five hours and it performed flawlessly. Lots of power.
The product was received with a "plastic" fitting for which the high-pressure hose attaches to the pump outlet broke. I didn't see any need to return the hose because I fixed it with JB Weld and it works fine. The product is a little difficult to move to another location because it's handle is so short. It does the job fantastically and with a lot of power. I still have the remainder of my... more

We've only had this pressure washer for a few weeks but we've been using it quite a lot. It works well. The pull start isn't too hard for me to use (a 60 year old woman). I put it together in just a few minutes and have had NO problems with it...I hope it will last us for many,many years!

Engine Defect
After a couple of dozen uses the pull cord started recoiling back to the engine with a tremendous amount of force. It nearly broke my hand. I read on other reviews that there is a common engine defect with the exhaust valve. I bought this because of the reputation of Honda engines. I'm very disappointed.
Pros: Features
Cons: Unreliable
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Archie,
It's a good idea to let the water run through the spray gun for a minute or two each time before you try to start the engine. This drives all of the air out of the pump, making it easier for the engine to turn over since the pump and engine are connected directly.

If you continue to have problems with the Honda GC engine while it's in the 2 year Factory Warranty period please contact the Honda Small Engine service location in your area. You may find this link to the Honda Small Engine Service Locator helpful.

We don't recommend trying to service the engine yourself during the Factory Warranty period since it might void the warranty.

Nice Product, However A Few Minor Irritations
Easy to use power washer. Love the Honda Engine, works very well and not many issues with it.

However, a few things to keep in mind:

1) The siphon hose attachment is somewhat difficult to find (not very good documentation on this), it's below where the water hose and the spray nozzle hose connect (you have to tilt the pressure washer at an angle to even locate it).

2) when using the quick connect on the attachments (that come with it) they don't really go on well. You have to... more

Ken Recommends This Simpson Product

Ken,
For the easiest time starting the engine, please be sure you are squeezing the spray gun trigger and letting water run for a minute or two before pulling the starter rope.

This drives all the air out of the pump, and allows the engine (since the engine and pump are directly connected) to turn over more easily. Air in the pump can cause vapor lock, making it very hard to get the engine started!

Amazingly quick delivery. Arrived as advertised and started on second pull. Called to ask about 100 ft hose and told it was on back order. Also asked about necessary conversion kit and was told to wait and order them together and there would be no shipping charges.

Well, I followed that instruction and was charged for the shipping and the kit did not include all the necessary adapters. I am on well water and the recommendation to use a short supply hose combined with the standard 25 foot... more

Wayne,
I'm sorry you misunderstood our customer service rep's suggestion. They were trying to save you money, not hide anything. Pressure washers ship for free, and accessories ordered at the same time as a pressure washer also ship for free. Accessories ordered by themselves have shipping charges.

If you had ordered all your accessories with your pressure washer they all would have shipped for free.

Most pressure washer manufacturers do not recommend using a pressure washer with a well, since wells have a hard time keeping up with the 2 GPM (minimum) needed to keep the pump supplied with enough water. Starving the pump will result in poor performance and possible pump damage.

The M22 connectors on this unit are common; if you use M22 hoses then adapters are not necessary.

Pressure washed the entire porch, deck, & pool deck. It didn't overheat nor did it need gas. The wand hose is really long to reach long distances without having to move the machine.

I'm glad we had the information you needed. I checked the PDF manual that we have for this unit, and Step 8 says
"Squeeze and hold trigger until water flow is steady. Release the trigger." Step 9 is "Start Engine". That covers it, but it doesn't tell you why to do it, or that it's helpful every time you try to start the engine.

Thank you for your business!

I originally ordered a different model but changed my mind when Brian recommended the Simpson MSH3125. Customer service cancelled the original order, processed the new without any hassle and my Simpson arrived 4 days later.
The Honda fired up on the 2nd pull, right out of the box and then, on the 1st or 2nd every time, thereafter.
Pressure washed the driveway to get the feel of things then the cabin. Worked great!

Nothing Special
The handle to roll the unit is too short made for a child. The pressure hose is too stiff. It is a hassle to shut the unit off each time the unit is moved. It has no soap unit nor a place to attach the included soap hose. Time will tell if it is reliable, durable, dependable or worth the money. Your feed back should be after 1 year. Guide books had to be written by a non American extemely poor.

I was kind of disappointed but only because I am a 56 year old women with a shoulder problem and was looking for an easy to use, light weight machine that I could start. I find the placement of the pull cord is in a very awkward place making it hard to pull. The handle is very short so it is kind of hard to move from place to place.

The easiest to use gas engine is one with an electric start. Usually those are commercial units with really large engines, but we do have a Briggs 020570 that would have been easier on your shoulder. Your order history shows you had selected this unit, and then changed to the Simpson.

Your order history also shows that when you cancelled the order for the Briggs 020570 your order for the BE detergent was also cancelled. Both items were refunded according to our Return Policy, and we emailed you on 2/28 with the details.

A bungee cord or paint can hanger hooked over the handle of your pressure washer and through the handle of the detergent container can make moving the container simpler. The compact handle is designed to make the unit easier to store and transport.

GPM determines how fast a unit can clean- with 2.5 GPM and the white 40° tip (or green 25° tip for stubborn stains) you should be cleaning your siding quickly. You may find some helpful tips in our How-To Library Cleaning Your Castle article.

Best Pressure Washer On The Market
I had tried multiple pressure washer before, and this is by far the best. Runs smoothly and exactly by directions. Equipment is effective, doesn't leak everywhere.

Minor problems are it moves when water is being used.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store, Quiet
Cons: Moves when spraying, Not easy to move manualy, Nozzles pop out of holder during use

Richard,
You may want to keep a wedge or two of wood handy to chock the wheels if movement causes an issue. The pneumatic tires make it easy to move the unit around and help absorb vibration- but they tend to react to the powerful water stream and motor.

Dancing Machine
Sprays nicely with great force. The machine jiggles up and down when working therefore wrapping itself in the water hose and spray hose. Both my husband and I have taken turns holding the machine down while the other one sprays. That makes the project of cleaning a real job for both of us.

The machine dances all over the patio crashing into everything unless we hold it down.
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Bad Instructions, Very loud running!

This Is A Nice Little Power Washer For The Money
Does a nice job for the money, but it's not like my other pressure washer that is 3500 psi with a 13 hp Honda engine. But that could be expected it was a lot more money than this one here.

It does a nice job, light weight- load it in your pick up truck. And, it stores easy.

Love It
Bought to replace an Excell pressure washer. This is hands down a much better unit. Starts with one pull, cleaned my brick house and walkway better and faster than my old unit.

With the Honda engine I expect it will last many years. Price was good and financing was a very good deal. Only a commercial unit could beat the performance, but would have a much bigger price tag.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, Light Weight
Cons: Oil dipstick is hard to read., Hard to not spill oil when filling.

Have used my new power washer only once, but it performed as expected however, the white nozzle did not work well, water came out the sides. I will purchase another one at Home Depot or Lowes. Otherwise, all went well except for the short handle. Must be made for a short person. Would recommend a handle for at least a 5' 8" person.

We bought the pressure washer to clean the vinyl siding on our home. Our son-in-law said he would do it for us, but my wife (aged 60+) saw how easy it was to operate and took over. Not only did she do most of the house, but washed the walkway and other things into the evening. Great Product!

Great Washer
Had another washer and it died. Read about all of those out there. The Simpson had great reviews and the price was good. It works better than advertised. Did 2 zero turn mowers and a tractor in no time. Easy to use. Tip storage is super. The only items that
are a bother is the motor cord access. Front guard could be just a little bit farther out and
the handle could be a little longer (bad back). You will not be disappointed with this unit.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, Quiet
Cons: Height of Handle, Access to Pull Cord

Product Expert
John,
The soap siphon only works when using the black spray tip. You also need to make sure the pressure washer-safe soap solution itself is thin, like water. If it's thick like dish detergent the siphon will not be able to pick it up and add it to the water stream. You may also find lifting the detergent container gets the siphon started more efficiently, since you make gravity work in your favor. Once the flow is established you can rest the container on the ground.

Simpson Megashot 3100 Psi Washer W/honda Engine
Bought this in July 2017 and have used it 4 times for cleaning the driveway. It cleans great!

The only thing that I don't like is the pull cord handle is very close to the framework of the washer. If the framework could be extended an inch or so it would help with accessing the pull cord handle.

Not a show stopper but it is little hard to get to when you start the engine. Just something you have to get used to. Everything on the washer is high quality. The spray wand and tips work... more

You may find it easier to get the engine started if you squeeze the trigger gun and let the water run for a minute or two each time before pull-starting. This drives air out of the pump and allows the engine to turn over more easily since the pump and engine are directly connected.

Great Pressure Washer For The Weekend Warrior
After researching for weeks I ultimately decided on this pressure washer over the others. It's a great price, great brand, great motor, and middle of the road pump. It looks like if the OEM pump goes bad I could replace it with a CAT when the unit is out of warranty. All in all, I'm very happy with my choice.

Decent So Far
Lots of pressure, as expected. Not so thrilled with how many times I have to pull the engine to start it. Maybe it will get better with time but Hondas are typically one pull. It does stall out when I first pull the wand trigger.

The hose could be improved as well. I know this is a lower end washer but 25' isn't ideal, and I can't say that I can trust that plastic. So I bought a steel braided hose.

I was blown away with how fast it arrived though. Always great service from this company!

You may find it's easier to start the engine if, each time before your pull-start it, you squeeze the trigger gun and let the water run for a minute or two. This drives all the air out of the pump- and since the engine and the pump are directly connected, it prevents trapped air (vapor lock) from keeping the engine from turning over.

Keep Looking
Not too happy with this purchase. First, pull start cord is under the front bar. You have to reach under the bar to get to the start cord. After only a few hours use, cord handle vibration is wearing a hole in the bumper on the front bar.

Second, after only the first use, it sprays water out of the back of the unit before it is started. It appears that the thermal relief valve may be stuck. Third, oil fill valve must be wrenched tight to prevent vibrating loose.

Pros: Easy To Store

Ron,
I am so sorry you're having issues with your pressure washer. It's against Federal Regulations to re-ship an engine that has been gassed since it's an explosion/fire hazard, so you did exactly the right thing by setting up local Warranty service. The Warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Easy To Set Up & Start Using
Set up is very easy. Attach the handle, fill the engine with oil, attach hoses and begin. The Honda engine started on the the 3rd pull and now starts on the first pull.

I noticed the unit jumps around a bit on hard surfaces when pressure spraying and stops when gun is off. With the unit capable of 3100 psi I also bought the Dial-n-Wash regulator so I could dial the pressure back for lighter work. I recommend it as it adds more versatility to unit.

The nozzle retainer is made of rubber... more

Great Little Powerful Pressure Washer
First impression, a great little powerful pressure washer, ideal in every respect for private use around house, pool & vehicles.

Happy all round, only thing missing was a fuel shutoff valve, so you can run it out of fuel (and this avoid deposits) when you shut it down. A 5$ fix, but cost 1 star for the feature. Easy to start.

Very Capable Unit
Excellent unit. Easy operation, convenient size, good selection of jets.

That said who ever designed the front bumper and handle never used the unit. Front bumper is directly in front of the starter grip. The handle is missing a foot or two of height. Very inconvenient to have to bend over and maneuver the unit.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, Features
Cons: handle height., Front guard blocks starter grip.

Received product only to find the retaining clips (2) that secure the handle to the machine were never installed at Simpson. I immediately called Simpson to have them send me the parts. Parts were ordered 07-01-17, and I still have not received...Ill call Simpson again...

Advise, check all parts are there when you receive. Quality control is lacking with Simpson.

Everything thru PED from ordering to shipping went perfectly. As noted by some other reviewers my washer was delivered on it's side causing some residual oil to leak out from the crankcase. That needs to be corrected with packaging and the shipper to make sure that doesn't happen.

Anyways, with a little clean up, assembly and prep the unit fired off without a problem. So far I have done quite a bit of work with it and will continue to do so. Very handy thing to have around I will tell you... more

Janice,
I am so sorry your pressure washer pump failed, and that it's taken so long to get fixed. I've contacted our rep at Simpson to see if they can expedite shipment of the replacement pump if it hasn't already been shipped.

I've also asked if he would contact the shop to make your repair a priority- even though it's the busy season for pressure washer repair, you have certainly waited long enough.

I've also asked that our Accounting folks to post a $75 credit to your account to help make up for your time and trouble. Please do not hesitate to let us know at 'service @pressurewashersdirect' if there is any other assistance we can provide.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Using the machine for only the second time and a valve in the back is leaking. It was shipped without the hardware to attach the handle. I now have to take it to a service center which isn't close to me to see what the issue is.

Now days it's amazing if any of the junk they're making doesn't the day after the warranty is up & we're supposed to be thrilled if something actually works for a little while, so I never get my hopes up too much.

Now the big deal is to put Honda motors into other brands to sell them because of Honda's reputation (good luck ) because the other product is apparently lacking something (like Husqvarna ).

Jerry,
I would respectfully disagree with your assessment of Simpson products. Their vision of a good pressure washer consists of using the best components available to meet a specific price point.

This pressure washer uses a pump that Simpson makes under the OEM name; a Honda consumer-grade engine since it's the best in its class, and quality frame, hose, nozzles, etc.for a reliable, reasonably priced homeowner pressure washer.

With proper use & maintenance it should last far beyond the 1 year Factory Warranty that covers defects in materials & workmanship, not wear & tear.

Dave,
Perhaps you misunderstood? There's a note on your file with today's date authorizing the refund of the sale difference. It will take about 48 hours for the credit to process and show up on your account.

We post the best price we can, every day. Occasionally a promotional price will be offered by the manufacturer- it usually only covers units that are sold during the period specified by the manufacturer. We can usually stretch that to cover sales that may have occurred before the sale, but that haven't shipped yet- but they usually don't let us stretch it to cover units already shipped- we had to get approval to let this one go through.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any misunderstanding.

Really Good Pressure Washer
This pressure washer does everything I needed it for. I had a stone wall with dirt behind it removed by my house and the wall was really discolored from the dirt. This pressure washer cleaned it very nicely.

It is a little harder to start than I was hoping, but I'm older and don't have the muscle strength I once had. I am very pleased with it overall.

Kimberly,
If you squeeze the trigger and let the water run for a minute or two before starting the engine you should have an easier time. Since the engine and the pump are directly connected, driving the air out of the pump first makes it easier for the engine to turn over.

Pressure washer comes mainly assembled. Basically, just pop on the handle and add oil and its ready to go. Oil comes with it.

The only issue I had was the motor was assembled in the wrong holes on the roller carriage and you could not get to the start handle as it was tucked under the front bumper of the roller carriage. 5 minutes and two 1/2 " wrenches and I moved the motor back about 1" to the next set of holes.

Lewis,
I'm sorry the trigger handle arrived broken. I believe Simpson uses a spray gun that is made by another company, so they may not have had the small pieces you needed on hand.

I will ask our Simpson rep to see if he can source the parts you need, or see if a gun is available sooner than 6 weeks. I'll update you privately through your account with the results.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for the inconvenience.

Great Pressure Washer
Finally got a chance to you to use it, first used on my driveway and sidewalk to clean rust- off worked great.

Only issue is with the draw string if you don't pull it right trying to pull it again is a little difficult.
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store, Durable
Cons: Draw string pull

James,
If you squeeze the trigger gun and let the water run for a minute or two before pulling the rope you might find it's easier to get the engine to turn over. The water pushes the air out of the pump, preventing vapor lock.

If you're not doing it already, keeping your hand on the rope handle all the way back to the engine to keep it from snapping back on its own might help it pull easier, too.

I have used this power washer a few times and in comparison to others which I have used, this is the best. I highly recommend the product.

There is only one small negative which the design of this power washer it moves while running! This is easily solved by looping the water hose on the ground around the unit. The hose stops this movement. This minor issue should not stop anyone from buying this power washer.

I would buy again in a second. Starts easy, consumes a lot less gas... more

Trigger Needs To Be Built Better
I purchased this power washer in April of this year used it on my house. Did a great job. That's why I gave it the 3 star rating.

My concern is the trigger handle started giving me trouble. Call the manufacturer, they are going to send me another one. But I'm worried about when the warranty runs out and it happens again. It might be next year before I use it again and the warranty will be out. So replacing the handle again will be at my cost. Real concerned about that. The trigger I don't... more

Jimmy,
It will be important to check the performance of the replacement spray gun when you get it, even if you have to wash something else with it (cars, lawn furniture, etc) to make sure the replacement gun operates correctly.

Factory Warranties usually only cover defects in materials and workmanship, not wear and tear. The warranty period on accessories like hoses and spray guns is usually pretty short- 30 days or so- because a manufacturing defect will show up quickly. The warranty period starts from when you receive the unit, not from when you start using it.

Ok For The Price
Before I bought this, I did read that this machine did not have variable pressure feature. It stated that the use of the different nozzles controls the pressure. While this is true, it is not one of the best features of this machine.

When using a lower pressure, wider angle nozzle, the two ends of the angle are at a higher pressure than the middle. When trying to power wash my deck, you can see "swirls" where the pressure was higher.

If you need a lower pressure setting... more

Works Well
Worked fine out of the box. You need to put oil in the engine which is provided, then make the hose connections, turn the water on at the source, squeeze the trigger and let all the air flow through.

After this it's ready to be started. It works as described plenty of power After reading other reviews about the tips vibrating out I wrapped electrical tape around all of them to prevent losing any.

I read a lot of reviews and this brand and model was consistently in the top tier. It performed as billed. I have used it for several tasks and it has done great on each one.

In reviews some complained about oil leaking in the box during shipping. Apparently my box was kept upright until the delivery man placed it at the door. There was a very small amount of oil that leaked from the box being on its side. This, however, has nothing to do with the product.

Disappointed
I am disappointed with this pressure washer. The engine is mounted so far forward the frame is against the pull starter. You have to fish the handle out three or four inches to get a hold of it. The wand, when in it's holder, is against the exhaust.

The engine is very loud, idles extremely fast, and vibrates like Hell. The pressure washer moves all over the concrete pad when running.

On a positive note, it does run, it does have good pressure and cleans as it should.
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, very loud

Simpson & Honda - 'nuff Said
The reason for buying Simpson and Honda is quality. Simple enough, it's not cheap and it's not cheap. In machines like this you pretty much get what you pay for.

I've had one of this series of Honda engine for over 10 years and done the basic maintenance - good fuel oil, air filter, and spark plug changes and it starts on the second pull every time. I expect no less from the pump that Simpson uses.

Only tiny problem is that the spray pattern of one of the nozzles is not quite right but... more

I love my pressure washer, it was so easy to pull out of the box and put the handle on, added Oil & Gas and it started after 3 pulls of the rope. Not bad but I was betting on 2 pulls because it is a Honda. I must have not pulled hard enough. Lol.

It has all the pressure I will ever need and runs fairly quiet. It was shipped the Day I ordered it and I had it in about 3 Days.

Exactly What I Hoped For
The Simpson MegaShot is a replacement for a unit from another manufacturer that I owned for 14 years. It was getting old and a little under powered so I took the plunge in getting a new unit. The Simpson seemed to have what I was looking for with regards to specs, and reviews were mostly positive.

The unit arrived in very good condition i.e. no damage or missing parts. My first job for it was to wash my basement walls (cement block) which had 20 year Dryloc on them that was not applied... more

I probably went a little overboard in researching pressure washers, but after reading literally hundreds of reviews, I'm glad it led me to this Simpson MegaShot 3100.

It was a cinch to setup, and so far, my storage shed, large concrete paver pebble pads, and two large Unilock raised flower beds are back to their original luster after about 14 years of neglect.

Buy This Pressure Washer
I love this pressure washer it small enough to fit in my cramped garage yet powerful enough to clean anything I've thrown at it so far.

It starts on the first pull every time. It has an idle down mode and is easy on gas consumption. I can't stop cleaning with it.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

So Far, So Good
I blow up about 2 -3 a year cleaning ponds, I have them running 5-8 hours a day.

Not too heavy. The line it comes is not quick connect. Also handle comes off for easy storage .
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions

Travis,
We say it comes with an M22 connector on the hose- that's a metric, threaded connection, not a quick connect.

If you are washing 5 to 8 hours a day and would like your pressure washer to last, I would suggest getting a Pro grade unit with a Honda GX commercial grade engine and a triplex plunger pump. You'll find them on our site if you click on Select Grade on the left side of the page in the Quick Search, then click on Professional.

You will need to do regular maintenance on them, but they will last much longer- giving you the most bang for your buck (and at 3 GPM and up, you'll get done quicker, too!).

Simpson Company Has No Idea What To Do About Trouble Shooting
The washer works fine however I noticed a spray coming out of one of the valves. Upon reviewing the situation with a rep from Simpson they could not figure out what the cause was and suggested I take it to an authorized dealer, which i did.

The mechanic told me it was working perfectly and the valve was a relief for hot water and pressure and no repairs were necessary. However i did receive a $40.00 bill from the service depot for an inspection. I am thoroughly pissed at Simpson for not... more

I own a mobile car detailing business. I have been using this washer in one of my vans for 2 years now. That van averages 40 plus car washes per week. This little unit has ran flawlessly the entire time.

I do change the oil regularly and air filter , but have not had one issue. I will be buying another very soon for another van.

Have used this model 6 times and love how much more power than a previous model I used.

The different tips (for spray pattern) are really nice. The 1 gal gas tank is one of the reason for the purchase besides the Honda engine reliability. The larger wheels make moving unit around a breeze.

Great for use around the house and small companies.

We just received this product and completed the first use. It was delivered on time with the shipping container fully intact. After unpacking and assembly, adding oil and gas, the machine started after a few pulls.

When the engine is warm and fully fueled, like a Honda, it starts first time, every time. The multiple spray tips work well and are very easy to change.

Unfortunately like many other people who have bought this pressure washer I too had parts missing.The two bolts and plastic nuts that hold the handle on were not in the box.

So I called customer service, they agreed to send them out to me- the only problem they're on back order. So it's been over a month and I still have not seen the parts, what a joke!!!!

The unit is very well put together. The 25 ft. pressure hose is very stiff and hard to handle and roll up.

Also, the holding brackets for wand are cheaply designed and the handle to pull it around could be raised to be more convenient.

The handle is lower so it's easier to store and transport. It also allows the unit to be shipped UPS instead of by freight carrier, which keeps the price down.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Megashot 3100 works great for the use around the house- I pressure wash a large driveway and the brick on the house.

Very good pressure washer with the Honda engine for easy starts.

Cheap Wand
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.

Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
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.

Powerful!
I've been using a Karcher 2650 PSI 2.6GPM pressure washer for the last two years. It's a powerful machine. But, this thing blows that Karcher right out of the water! They both have the same engine. But the pumps are different. The Simpson's OEM pump is much more powerful and smoother running than the Karcher.

Engine started on the fourth pull out of the box, one pull after it broke in for an hour or so of running. I've changed the oil at one hour of run time to get the break in crud out and... more

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.

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.

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.

Great Product For Several Projects
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. A minor issue - the oil filler cap is plastic and you need to be careful not to cross thread the cap when screwing it into the metal engine. Use ear and eye protection - it... more

Soap Connection
I just purchased this pressure washer today. I thought it was going to take me a while to set up, but all I had to do was turn the handle around and attach the spray handle. In 3 minutes, I was done.

I have read the owners' manual and instruction manual. I have a question about the soap connection. When you're not using the clear soap suction tube, is there a cap that needs to go over top of the soap fitting on the pump????? Just seems like dust and Bugs could get sucked in the fitting.... more

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.

Great Power Washer
This was exactly what I was looking for. Gentle enough to wash the car and powerful enough to easily clean the concrete.

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. Not a deal-breaker by any means, the correct nozzle rinsed... more

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.

William,
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.

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
