Q: I need to know , what kind of oil I can use it here
by Sunny Patel from Texas on August 07, 2016

A: This unit has a maintenance-free pump, so you won't need engine oil.

The Owner's Manual for the engine will tell you the amount and type of oil it needs. You can download a free copy of the manual from the Honda GCV190 page. SAE 10W-30 is recommended for general use, and the manual shows a chart for temperature extremes on Page 3.

Pressure Washer In South America
I bought this pressure washer and brought it to Colombia in South America It is very reliable and cleans easily.

I am very happy that the cleaning work is done more efficiently. I developed a tutorial on Youtube about the way in which it is used.

Got Taken On This One!
Ok, I get it. You sold me a product that was discontinued because customers have numerous problems with it. To get you to take it back, you will hit me for 25% restocking fee and double shipping totaling about $150.00.

I'll do what I can to fill out reviews on Yelp, BBB, Google Trusted Stores etc. to help protect the next guy.
Pros: None - Discontinued
Cons: Low Quality

Scott,
Every manufacturer updates their models on a regular basis. This one is clearly marked as a Closeout, not Discontinued, because it's being replaced by a newer model. This allows us to offer a good unit to someone who wants a good price and isn't concerned about the latest trim or color. It's still covered by the full 1 year Factory Warranty.

I checked your account and I see where you tried to cancel your order, but it had already shipped. We quoted our standard Return Policy. It's linked at the bottom of every page of our website so the terms shouldn't have come as a surprise.

We are happy to answer any further questions you, or anyone reading this, may have.

Don't Buy
Got one of these from a Big Box store about a yr ago....I used maybe 10 hrs. used it yesterday for 10 min shut it off and noticed oil pouring out of bottom all the oil came out all over my concrete....after looking I see that the sheer key has slid up to where it damaged the crank shaft seal.....

Never in all my years using power equipment have I seen this.... how does this happen I don't know that a new seal will even be able to be installed because of the damaged aluminium housing.

Horrible Pump
Bought this Pressure washer two years ago and the pump has gone on it. Leaking oil every where. I probably have about 20 hours on the machine. The engine is awesome, powerful and second pull it always starts up. I just wish they would have went with a better pump.

Good thing I bought it at a warehouse store as they have a great return policy. I'll be buying the Subaru one now. Its really too bad as I liked this pressure washer a lot.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Reliable
Cons: Durability, Pump

Works Well
I receive the unit from shipping inside the unit there was grease all over the interior box it did not seem to affect the performance of the unit itself.

I have ran it to clean a house as well as a patio and it worked to expectations.

Matthew,
If the box is tipped during shipment residual oil can stain the box or get on the pressure washer. We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Simpson Mega Shot
Ordered thru Pressure Washers Direct , came in 4 days with all the parts intact,no damage.

It started on the first pull, I used it all day cleaning moss off my patio around my pool, did two composite decks, and many pieces of outdoor furniture.

It did a wonderful job, the 3000 psi is a beast! I highly recommend it.

Prior Accessories Do Not Match New Machine
I had this same exact machine which seized up. I bought this one thinking my hoses and telescoping wand would simply attach. NOT THE CASE. They changed to thread and perhaps metric. I have spent an inordinate amount of time searching for couplers that work.

Nothing in the Simpson literature alerts one to this issue nor do they mention the size of the connections and where to get proper connectors. My local hardware store is out of possible quick connectors which might work.

Ken,
The connectors on this model are M22- which means Metric 22mm. They are used a lot in the pressure washer world, but adapters can be hard to find since they are specialized.

We carry adapters that will change an M22 into NPT threads or quick connects; just click on this link or put Adapters in the Search box on our web page.

The ethanol problem is prevalent in the small engine world; there are some fuel stabilizers on the market that will help neutralize it's effects.

Worst Product & Company I Have Ever Bought From The Internet
Came out of box. Did not run proper. Worked for about 20 min. Started it second day n it ran for about hour or so. Oil all over. It is still at Honda dealer 2 weeks later waiting for approval for it to be fixed.

Talked to multiple people from pressure washer CO. No help given. Talked to Simpson no help given. So yeah I would not buy from this company unless you also want the head ache they sold me n won't do a thing to get it fixed or refund.
Pros: None
Cons: Unreliable, Can't get fixed by company that sold it .

Debra,
I'm sorry you're having problems with your pressure washer. The Factory Warranty is through the folks at Simpson, and it covers defects in materials and workmanship; the engine is covered by the folks at Honda Small Engine. Since the unit has had gas and oil in it Federal Regulations won't allow it to be re-shipped since it's a fire/explosion hazard.

I'll be happy to ask our rep at Simpson to contact you directly. He will need the name & phone number of the shop you took the unit to as well as the name of the person you're working with there.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

UPDATE 11/9/16: Zac from Simpson contacted this customer's repair shop directly. He says parts have been ordered and the repair should be completed early next week under Honda's Factory Warranty. Thank you, Simpson!

Company Backs Their Product, Excellent
The power washer starts easy. The machine worked perfectly at first. The wand developed a leak. I called the company. They asked me the model number and quickly sent me a new wand.

Great service and the power washer starts quickly and works great no leaks. I give you and the manufacturer 5 stars- I will recommend you and the manufacturer.
