Gas Pressure Washer Reviews

Gas pressure washers are powerful, versatile and durable but they are also bulky, noisy and maintenance prone. The best thing about gas washers though is that the mechanism hasn’t changed much over the years. What has changed however is the technology, making it easier to start, operate and maintain.

With the pump generating pressure off the engine output, you never have to worry about the PSI and GPM output. As far as cleaning efficiency is concerned, gas washers are always better than any electric variant. However, remember never to use these power tools within a confined space as they produce dangerous carbon monoxide fumes, which is odorless and colorless.

What You Need To Consider Before Purchasing A Gas Pressure Washer:

Engine CapacityPump TypePortabilityOnboard StorageEasy To Winterize
The ultimate power output is governed by the engine capacity and then by the pump type. More is the engine output, the higher pressure you can get with the ability to increase pressure even more.
Not all pumps deliver the same output. Moreover, brand and make of the pump matters a lot just as much as the design. Opt for pumps with a long running period and the ability to repair them.
Not all gas pressure washers are easy to move around. Although most come with wheels, opt for those with large pneumatic wheels and a sturdy base.
The nozzles, attachments, wand and hose should all store easily on the pressure washer itself. Otherwise you may be left wondering where you stored the accessories after every winter.
Gas pressure washers need a lot of care during the winters. Winterizing them requires removing all liquids and then filling in solutions to protect the engine and pump insides against frost.

Effective and efficient probably best defines the Simpson PS3228 Powershot. While it operates a Honda Gx200 engine, the pump in use is of an inferior quality that will eventually wear out faster. Nevertheless, it produces 3200PSI and ample amount of GPM to clean driveways, patio, sidings, roof, walls and just about anything else.

Simpson Megashot MSH3125-S

Simpson Megashot MSH3125-S ReviewAverage Customer Rating: 4.5-stars3rd best review
Simpson is not my favorite manufacturer for power tools but it is always there in the back of my mind for making inexpensive dependable tools. The Simpson Megashot MSH3125-S is no different. It is a completely efficient and effective pressure washer that manages to outperform most other models and makes in the market. The only real problem though with this model is that Simpson tends to ship them without all the parts. So basically you end up waiting for two weeks or more. Otherwise, power to weight is great, so is the pressure and GPM ratings for any average household chore.

ProsPros: Long lasting, durable engine, good pump design, overall superb performance.Simpson Megashot MSH3125-S review
ConsCons: At times ships with missing parts and the pump breaks down faster than the engine.
