Briggs and Stratton Redesigns Home Series Pressure Washer Line for Extreme Durability



MILWAUKEE (October 23, 2014) ― Durability and high-quality results continue to top the list of consumer “must-haves” when shopping for a pressure washer. And in 2015, the new and improved Home Series from Briggs & Stratton (NYSE:BGG) will deliver. Longer-life, high-quality performance and easier-to-use features join the list of key benefits consumers will experience.

Redesigned from the ground up, the Home Series pressure washer line now features high-strength, all-steel frame construction. Built to help protect the pump, the stamped steel-frame is able to withstand the rough treatment and abuse a pressure washer typically endures on the job. Consumers also will find improved maneuverability with a design that allows for more compact storage.

“With relentless dedication to performance and durability, our engineering team has taken our Home Series pressure washer line up another notch,” said Eric Loferski, director of marketing for Briggs & Stratton Portable Power and Cleaning Systems. “While getting the cleaning done quickly continues to remain a mainstay for consumers, by strengthening the frame construction and adding some creature comforts, we’ve made the Home Series pressure washers easier to use and store.”

The Home Series pressure washer, with its highly durable frame, offers consumers a host of benefits, while other key features simplify outdoor cleaning:

●     The steel enclosure dampens pump noise when in use, creating a more pleasing overall sound.

●     Hose connections are now available in the front of the pressure washer as opposed to the back, improving accessibility for users.

●     Optimized handle height and weight distribution offers improved mobility.

“When the job is complete, we’ve also made storage a snap,” adds Loferski. “A smaller footprint takes up less space in your garage and, when you need to store the pressure washer in a tight space, the handle folds down neatly to fit under a workbench or shelf.”

The Home Series pressure washer line will be available for purchase ahead of the spring season in January of 2015 and can be purchased at Briggs & Stratton dealer locations across the United States. For additional information, visit briggsandstratton.com .
