Simpson Megashot 3300 PSI Pressure Washer Review MS60921:
The Simpson Megashot 3300 PSI Pressure Washer MS60921 is one of the most popular model in the series. It is manufactured by Honda Corporation and it comes with a 3 year warranty from date of purchase. The model number is MS60921. The machine is available in two versions – Standard and Advanced.
The basic features of the machine are similar to other models in the series. It has a water tank, which holds approximately 10 gallons (38 L) of water. There is also a drain plug located near the bottom of the machine’s front panel. The machine has three separate settings – high pressure mode, low pressure mode and no setting mode.
High pressure mode uses up to 3000 psi (1.8 bar) while low pressure mode uses only 2000 psi (1 bar). No pressure mode only supplies water to the hose.
The most useful feature of the machine is its Honda GC190 engine which provides as much as 2.4 gallons per minute (GPM) of water flow. With this powerful engine, the machine can easily cut through dirt, mud and grime. The engine can start on the first try every time and requires a minimum amount of maintenance.
The machine’s hose reel swivels and can spool out to 50 feet of 5/8 diameter hose, however the average use doesn’t require such length. The hose is made with a durable material which is able to withstand the pressure of the water and will not easily kink. It can be spooled back on the reel very quickly. The unit also comes with a 0-degree, 15-degree and 40-degree nozzles for various types of cleaning jobs.
It also comes with a handy accessory tray for storing the nozzles, so you don’t lose them. The best part about this model is that it comes with the Honda engine, so you never have to worry about maintenance or repair costs. Great unit for the price!
The most important feature of any pressure washer is its engine. The engine provides the necessary power to push the water through the hose and out of the nozzle. Most pressure washer engines range from small, low powered gasoline engines to medium sized and larger diesel engines. Some manufacturers also make electric models, which are easier to use but have limited power.
The next most important feature is the pump. The pump is directly connected to the engine and is responsible for boosting the pressure of the water from 0 up to as much as 3100 PSI (200 BAR). The pump has several moving parts which spin very fast and are prone to breaking.
