Simpson Megashot 3100 PSI Review: The Simpson Megashot MSH3125-S 3100 Honda GC190 is a gas powered pressure washer designed for residential use.
Jack Simpson invented the first power washer in the 1960s. Since then the Simpson Company has been manufacturing and distributing a large line of power washers for residential and commercial use.
The Simpson Megashot 3100 PSI pressure washer harnesses the power of a Honda GC190 engine to turn out an incredible 3,100 PSI (pounds per square inch). That is roughly four and a half times more powerful than the spray hoses at your local carwash.
“Power. This thing has tons of power – enough to wash away caked on dirt, grime, moss, gum, etc. Hell, enough to shoot right through your fence if you’re not careful! Very few stuck on items are hard to get off.”
SIMPSON MEGASHOT 3100 PSI IS FUEL EFFICIENT
People buy Honda cars for a reason. They are good on gas. This Honda engine is no different. It is efficiently designed to maximize power and minimize fuel consumption.
“5.5 hours without a break and it only drank up about a gallon and a half of gas. Niiiiiiice.”
EASY TO USE
With its easy to start Honda engine, 10 inch pneumatic tires, ergonomic handle and compact size this unit is incredibly easy to use for the average home owner.

“Other pressure washers we have used in the past have either been hard to start, hard to operate, or did not get the job done. This one works wonders. It starts easily, is simple to use, and will work hard for hours.”
Considering the fact that you are getting a Honda motor and 3100psi this unit is very reasonably priced for the average homeowner who has a plethora of projects to do.
“AWESOME. Love it!! It came well packaged and the power is incredible. This is NOT a toy. Loved the price and it’s a HONDA!! I highly recommend it.”
EASY TO STORE
The Simpson Megashot is designed to have a minimal footprint when not in use which is big selling point if your garage is continually filled with the remnants of past projects like mine.
“The handle flips around very easily, so for storage the unit can fit in a surprisingly small area, an unexpected but pleasant feature.”
