Released by Briggs & Stratton, the 20575 can be a good solution for those who need a gas pressure washer for outdoor cleaning projects. One nice thing about this product is that it is made by a reputable company that has been around for a long time. Briggs & Stratton has manufactured some of the world’s most reliable small gasoline engines that power many outdoor power equipment today. Now let’s take a look at the 20575 gasoline powered pressure washer in more detail.

When it comes to pressure washing machine, the combination of PSI and GPM matters. With a PSI of 2800, the Briggs & Stratton 20575 can be considered a moderate strength unit. It is suitable for heavier residential purposes. It has 2.3 GPM giving it a CPU (Cleaning Power Units) of 6440. Compare the cleaning power with a standard garden hose that produces a PSI of about 40 and a GPM of about 5. It can reduce your water usage by 80 percent.

This pressure cleaning system is powered by the Briggs & Stratton Professional Series OHV 190cc engine. The overhead valve (OHV) engine design ensures the engine runs cooler and cleaner. This allows for better fuel economy and longer engine life. The single cylinder, vertical shaft engine comes with the ReadyStart starting system that means priming or choking is not required to start it. Briggs & Stratton uses gross torque rating as a measure of power for engines powering pressure washers. The gross torque rating of this pressure washer’s engine is 8.5-foot-pounds.

The 2800-PSI gas pressure washer features a detergent injection system. It is equipped with a detergent storage tank that holds one gallon. Detergent solution can help you help break down stubborn dirt and grime on a variety of surfaces. Detergent is automatically mixed into the water stream for a faster, easier cleaning. The washing machine works with or without detergent. If you use detergent, make sure black detergent spray tip is installed.

A set of spray nozzles are included with this gas washing system. The four multi–colored quick connect spray tips come with predefined spray patterns. For cleaning vehicles and other delicate applications, use the white 40° spray tip (2400 PSI, 2.3 GPM). The yellow 15° spray tip (2600 PSI, 2.2 GPM) is ideal for most all purpose cleaning. Use it to power wash your home siding, brick patio, wood deck, driveway or garage floor. When dealing with stubborn substances, select the red 0° spray tip (2800 PSI, 2.1 GPM).

The nozzle extension with quick connect fitting allows you to switch between these four different spray tips. Some other items included are a 30-foot high pressure hose, hose wrap and plastic accessory tray. As the name implies, the accessory tray provides storage for accessories. The hose wrap provides hassle-free storage of the high-pressure hose. It can be detached from the accessory tray for wrapping and unwrapping of the hose. For easy transportation, this unit features 10” wheels and fold-down handle.

This residential system does not have adjustable pressure regulation. Further, it uses only cold water (less than 100°F). To keep the pump operating in a safe range, the pressure cleaner comes equipped with an automatic cool down system. A high temperature thermal relief valve prevents overheating by automatically discharging warm water onto the ground once the circulating water in the pump reaches 125°F. This prevents internal pump damage.

The Briggs & Stratton 20575 comes with an axial cam pump. For heavy duty applications, you will want the one with a triplex plunger pump. However, for medium sized projects around the home, this unit can be a great choice. It has received some positive reviews from its customers at It might not be a very popular model. But considering all the features packed into this unit and the positive comments left by customers, it deserves serious consideration.
