New Briggs & Stratton Home Series Pressure Washers with Heavy-Duty, All-Steel Frame Delivers Durability and Performance



MILWAUKEE, WI (April 23, 2015) — For homeowners looking for durable, dependable and easy-to-use products to help maintain outdoor living spaces, Briggs & Stratton Corporation (NYSE: BGG) has introduced a new line of pressure washers featuring all-steel construction. The new Briggs & Stratton® Home Series Pressure Washer line features heavy-duty, all-steel frame construction that delivers long-life and high-quality performance, while remaining easy-to-use and store.

“The all-steel base on the Briggs & Stratton Home Series Pressure Washers proved two times stronger than tubular pressure washer frames in a displacement crush test,” said Dan Roche, director of marketing for Briggs & Stratton Portable Power and Cleaning Systems. “What that means for the consumer is that this product can withstand the rough treatment and abuse that pressure washers typically endure on the job. The fully enclosed steel-frame base protects the pump and resists corrosion. We have also added front-access hose connections and a fold-down handle to make the Home Series pressure washers easy to set-up and store."

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

  • Maintenance Free Axial Cam Pump with Easy Start™ technology for high-pressure output and easy, low-effort starting.
  • Easy-to-reach front hose connections for easy access and quick set-up.
  • Quick-Connect spray tips give user pre-defined spray patterns for precise control.
  • 10” Never Go Flat wheels.
  • Optimized handle height offers improved mobility while full-length axle provides increased rigidity when traveling up and down stairs.
  • Compact footprint and fold-down handle design make storage quick and easy.

Three models of Home Series pressure washers are available with reliable Briggs & Stratton Professional Series™ OHV Engines at mass retail stores and Briggs & Stratton dealers across the United States. For additional information, visit briggsandstratton.com.
