Zoom on the Briggs & Stratton 20507
In summary, the Briggs & Stratton 20507 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.
With an impressive 420 cc (13.5 hp) engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of 4000 PSI (roughly 67 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Briggs & Stratton 20507's cleaning power of 16000 Cleaning Units.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Briggs & Stratton 2100 Series™ engine.
Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1.75 gallon.
Design & Handling
The wheelbarrow design of the Briggs & Stratton 20507 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the 20507 convenience of transport.
With a weight of 141 lbs, the model is not lightweight. Therefore, it may be challenging to manually carry it around and transport it. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 420 cc Briggs & Stratton 2100 Series™ engine, the triplex pump and steel tubing frame. However, the unit is manipulated smoothly thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, which play a key role in its maneuverability.
The Briggs & Stratton 20507's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 50 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
- Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The Briggs & Stratton 20507's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Briggs & Stratton 20507 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Briggs & Stratton 20507, with a max water pressure of 4000 PSI, has one of the higher PSI values of the gas-powered products in the $925-1000 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Pressure-Pro PP4440K with 4400 PSI.
- In the aforementioned price range, the 4 GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer makes it one of the best performing units in terms of the delivered volume of water.
- With a rather impressive value of 16000 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the 20507 has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Pressure-Pro PP4440K and its 17600 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 15700 and 16800 Cleaning Units, the Briggs & Stratton 20507 is on the cheap side of the price range.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
