Description

Zoom on the Briggs & Stratton 20680

The Briggs & Stratton 20680 is a light duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Briggs & Stratton 20680 in use

The Briggs & Stratton 20680

With a 13 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of 1800 PSI (roughly 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per PWMA testing standards), resulting in the Briggs & Stratton 20680's cleaning power of 2160 Cleaning Units.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the 20680 gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D15.5 x W18.8 x H35 in, the Briggs & Stratton 20680 offers great mobility. The strong welded steel frame assures assembly longevity. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the 20680 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Since the unit weighs only 31.5 lbs, it is very easily carried around. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 7" wheels.

Main Features

The Briggs & Stratton 20680 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.5 gal tank. However, since the Briggs & Stratton 20680 does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of easy-to-use straps, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 3 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

  • 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 pressure hose, spray gun, nozzle cleaner, power cord and wand.

The Briggs & Stratton 20680'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 20680 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Briggs & Stratton 20680, which can reach a PSI of 1800, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other electric units that cost between $120 and $150. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2700-MAX with 2100 PSI.
  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Westinghouse ePX3050, that can deliver up to 1.76 GPM.
  • The 2160 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the 20680 result in an average cleaning efficiency, compared to similarly priced electric units. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Westinghouse ePX3050 and its 3572.8 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.
