Simpson 3100 PSI Pressure Washer Review

Updated 5/4/2021

The Simpson 3100 pressure washer was built to last with a durable, easy-to-start gas-powered engine and features capable of maintaining its lifespan well beyond that of conventional pressure washers.

Equipped with Simpson’s unique PowerBoost technology, as well as many handy features for increased usability, comfort, and convenience, this is a relatively low-cost alternative to some of the most powerful gas pressure washers currently available on the market.

Simpson 3100 PSI Pressure Washer Review

  • Powered by a quiet yet extremely strong and efficient Honda OHC premium residential engine, the Simpson MegaShot 3100 pressure washer is capable of delivering a maximum pressure output of 3100 PSI.
  • This is one pressure washer that won’t break down too easily. Highly durable and protective, its welded frame construction is ideal for protecting the machine against any outside damage.
  • A durable and abrasion-resistant hose will make it extremely easy to channel all that raw water pressure and avoid leaving scuff marks on any of your surfaces.
  • The machine uses a unique, OEM axial cam pump able to considerably reduce the noise and vibration commonly associated with high-pressure cleaning.
  • You also get all four major nozzle sizes (0, 15, 25, and 40 degrees), featuring durable, quick connect nozzles.
  • The entire construction of the Simpson MegaShot 3100 pressure washer weighs only about 65 pounds. Combined with its 10’’ highly durable pneumatic tires, this also makes it one of the most portable high power pressure washers you will find.

What We Like

The Simpson 3100 PSI pressure washer is probably the most powerful gas pressure washer that was designed to be used both by professionals and regular homeowners alike.

Its refined construction allows it to be very easy to use for anything from outdoor furniture cleaning to removing stubborn debris off patios, decks, and siding.

Capable of more than 3000 PSI and fitted with a PowerBoost design that makes it even more efficient when it comes to high-pressure cleaning, the washer may seem like it was created only for the pros.

However, the Simpson 3100 PSI pressure washer’s light construction, convenient portability, and safe and easy to use controls, connectors, and accessories make it a perfect tool for outdoor DIY cleaning projects.

Moreover, the Simpson 3100 PSI pressure washer is available at an accessible price well below the $500 mark and comes with a 2-year limited warranty on the engine and a 1-year overall warranty.

What We Don’t Like

The MegaShot may seem like a dream come true, but it’s definitely not perfect. Here are a couple of problems that users have found with the unit after prolonged, long term use:

  • This is a fairly complex pressure washer unit, and the assembly process is often not without difficulties unless you have at least some basic technical skills.
  • The hose also seems to be somewhat short and rigid. This is something you won’t feel at first, but it does tend to make handling the machine more difficult after a couple of hours of work.

Wrapping it Up

Most of the people who have bought the MegaShot washer were more than pleased with its cleaning abilities, comfort, and compact, ergonomic, and highly resilient design.

The Simpson 3100 PSI pressure washer can be an exceptional choice if you need a relatively small, light, and affordable machine that can still pack an impressive amount of power.
