The Simpson Megashot MSH3125-S is an ugly looking pressure washer that looks more like a ripped apart car engine. Well, fret not, most gas pressure washers actually look worse than this baby. In fact, in my opinion, it is the most portable and easy to use machine out in the market. Well, as long as you get all the right parts the first time around, your experience with pressure washing and gas engines should be nothing less than pleasant. My only reason not to give it a perfect 5 out of 5 rating though is the abysmal customer support from Simpson, which my guess is based out of India or somewhere, and the missing parts.

Ease Of Use: 4/5

The rip cord is lose enough to pull without straining the neck or shoulder muscles but not too loose to require multiple attempts. And with a detailed instruction manual, operating it is quite simple. Actually, if it had not been for the detailed manual, I would never have realized that a small attachment nut was missing. Thank god, it wasn’t a hose or something more important as in many other cases. Well, if you manage to get all the components at once from Simpson then you are probably the luckiest customer out there. Otherwise, I find nothing hard to do with this pressure washer.

Noise: 3.5/5

Unlike the powerful Honda GX200, the GC190 is a tad bit quieter but not that much. You can still hear it chug along and produce an impressive output. What it does however do better because of its smaller size is mask a bit more of the noise. So in comparison with the GX200 engine, this one actually does sound a little less noisy. (At least marginally to me)

Simpson MSH3125-S Review

Power: 5/5

The pump and engine together pelt out around 3100 PSI. The pump is a Free Brass Axial Cam Pump, which is not the best in its class but is good enough to last a couple of years. Basically, with the steel lance, spray gun and 5 spray tip assortment, you get sufficient extension of power and output. In my opinion, it provides ample power for any average household task. Be it washing cars or cleaning up the patio, the Simpson Megashot MSH3125-S manages all with ease.

Application: 5/5

The only real complication with regards to household chores is cleaning cars and interior furniture. Because this machine delivers in excess of 3000 PSI, it is not advisable to use with cars. If you do so then prefer using the 20 or 40 degree spray tip attachment to reduce the pressure and increase the spray area. Otherwise, you can do almost everything else with this pressure washer.

Durability: 4/5

Welded steel frame, pneumatic easy wheels give the Megashot MSH3125-S portability and durability. It is a durable machine designed to last a really long time and the only real concern is whether the Axial pump shall hold up in the long run. According to customer reviews, it tends to die out after a couple of years but that is to be expected from a mid-range semi pro pressure washer. Thankfully, you can repair these axial pumps for a nominal cost and since the engine continues to chug along even after a decade, you have a low maintenance gas pressure washer sitting ready in your garage.

Customer Support: 2/5

Simpson sucks when it comes to customer support. With most of its technical support outsourced, do not expect quick resolution of conflicts and problems. In fact, just to order back the missing parts, one has to wait 2 weeks. Call up their customer care number and you will be stuck with a person who hardly understands what you are telling him or her and isn’t really interested in helping you out either.

Features and Specifications:

  • 5 Quick connecting nozzles packed along with – 0,15, 25, 40 and soap nozzles.
  • Hose and gun storage onboard.

PROS:
Durable, efficient and effective with a long lasting engine and pump designed for ergonomic use.
The GC190 Honda engine is superb to start and it helps produce an impressive 3100 PSI of pressure.
CONS:
Once again, it is the pump that tends to falter first as is the case with other Simpson models.
Almost always, parts are missing in shipments that then take 2 weeks or more to come.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Compared to the PS3228, the Megashot MSH3125-S costs about $100 less and provides an equivalent power output. This is the primary reason why I have rated it as 4.3 out of 5. Yes, the customer support problem is irritating and missing parts aren’t really a happy sight but at the end of the day, you are paying less for something that is powerful and durable.
