Ease Of Use: 4/5
Although this is a heavy duty gas pressure washer, it is not unwieldy and is quite easy to maneuver along with being great for different types of surfaces including grimy decks, wood surfaces, and concrete or marble surfaces. Delivering 4.5 GPM, this model from Simpson is easy to transport to any location, and the high-pressure nozzle ensures strong jets of water that can complete most cleaning tasks efficiently.
When compared to any other electrically operated pressure washer, the great disadvantage with a gas operated pressure washer is probably the awful noise that the equipment makes while on and running. With this Simpson gas pressure washer, the noise levels are higher than the prescribed decibel limit, making it difficult for you to be heard while the engine is on. This is irrespective of the pressure level maintained, so at least you won’t have to cower behind cover at high pressures.

As far as maintenance goes, winterization is standard with the engine. You probably don’t have to change or replace anything in its entire lifespan however owing to the fact that it relies on a Honda engine, any engine related complication has to be taken up with Honda. For everything else, Simpson customer service is adept at handling things. A one-year consumer warranty is coupled with the pressure washer from Simpson and can be extended before the warranty runs out but it won’t cover the engine.
