Zoom on the Briggs & Stratton 20700

In a nutshell, the Briggs & Stratton 20700 is a medium duty pressure washer that allows:

  • broad cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and surface preparation for painting
  • mild cleaning for delicate surfaces, and low-pressure cleaning for broader areas
  • 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 20700 in use

The Briggs & Stratton 20700

Utilizing a 13-amp induction motor, this machine's axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2200 PSI (around 37 times stronger than a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per PWMA testing standards). Thus, the Briggs & Stratton 20700 achieves a cleaning power of 2640 Cleaning Units.

The 20700, 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

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D27 x W14 x H32 in, the Briggs & Stratton 20700 offers great mobility. Built to endure, the welded steel frame ensures the assembly's longevity by providing stability and safeguarding internal components under all working conditions. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the 20700 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

This unit, weighing 41 lbs, strikes a comfortable balance between portability and stability, ensuring easy maneuvering for users of various strengths. This substantial weight can be partially attributed to the incorporation of the motor and a resilient welded steel frame. Even so, the 20700's two 9" wheels maintain easy maneuverability.

Main Features

Along with the Briggs & Stratton 20700 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. It must be noted that the Briggs & Stratton 20700 doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of convenient hooks, the unit offers a practical solution for maintaining workspace order, allowing the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose to be neatly stored when idle.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: Below, you'll find a table outlining the 3 included nozzles and their recommended surfaces.

Other Features

  • Total Stop System (TSS): Featuring an automatic shut-off mechanism, this pressure washer stops running when the trigger is released, enhancing the pump's durability.
  • Onboard storage: The Briggs & Stratton 20700's handy storage area lets you store nozzles and accessories, and thus, you’ll be always prepared and have everything necessary for the job at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Briggs & Stratton 20700 comes with pressure hose, wand, power cord, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water) and spray gun.
