Description

Zoom on the Briggs & Stratton 20680

In a nutshell, the Briggs & Stratton 20680 is a light duty pressure washer that allows:

  • overall cleaning of hard surfaces, washing vehicles, and prepping surfaces for painting
  • applying detergents and cleaning agents, and rinsing off surfaces
  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, and removing stubborn stains

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.

Power

The Briggs & Stratton 20680 in use

The Briggs & Stratton 20680

The Briggs & Stratton 20680's axial (wobble plate) pump, powered by a 13-amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (approximately 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per PWMA testing standards). Thus, the Briggs & Stratton 20680 achieves a cleaning power of 2160 Cleaning Units.

The 20680, an electric washer, swiftly activates via a simple ON/OFF switch, ensuring user-friendly startup. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

Enhanced mobility is a key feature of the Briggs & Stratton 20680, thanks to its hand truck design. Guaranteeing longevity, the robust welded steel frame offers stability and protects internal components, even when subjected to demanding tasks. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the 20680 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

At just 31.5 lbs, this unit is incredibly lightweight, ensuring hassle-free mobility wherever you need it. Adding to its lightweight construction, two 7" wheels are included, simplifying mobility and transport.

Main Features

Along with the Briggs & Stratton 20680 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a removable 0.5 gal tank. Given the absence of a soap dilution mechanism, users should dilute detergent correctly before operating the Briggs & Stratton 20680 pressure washer. The pressure washer automatically dispenses and mixes the detergent with the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: Utilizing a set of easy-to-use straps, the unit offers a convenient solution for storing the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose when it's not in use, keeping it neatly organized.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: Below, you'll find a table outlining the 3 included nozzles and their recommended surfaces.

Other Features

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Briggs & Stratton 20680 also comes with spray gun, pressure hose, nozzle cleaner, wand and power cord.

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Briggs & Stratton 20680 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With 1800 PSI, the Briggs & Stratton 20680 achieves a lower pressure when compared to similarly priced electric pressure washers within the $150-180 range. Prioritizing the highest water stream power? Check out the Westinghouse ePX3500—a top contender in this price range, delivering up to 2500 PSI.
  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. If you're looking for optimal debris removal capabilities, consider the Westinghouse ePX3500 as one of the top choices in this price range, with a flow rate of 1.76 GPM.
  • In comparison to other electric units of similar price, the 2160 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) of the 20680 are average. When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the Westinghouse ePX3500 and its 2480 Cleaning Units.

    Agreed with weaknesses in the bottom line review, plus why does the water pressure decease, surge at times requiring to stop the machine and restart. It would be nice if a more flexible hose used to deliver water to the nozzle in its design.

    + PROS: In price range.
    - CONS: Short on performance and features.
