MILWAUKEE, Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Briggs & Stratton® (NYSE: BGG) is introducing a max 3600 PSI*, max 2.5 GPM* commercial-grade pressure washer to its line of PRO SERIES pressure washers.
Powered by a Vanguard 6.5 gross HP** engine, the new pressure washer is designed to give contractors enough power for any cleaning job, including prepping exterior siding for paint. The pressure washer is protected by the TransportGuard™ System, which is a simultaneous fuel and ignition shut-off designed to protect the engine from oil and fuel dilution during transit to and from the jobsite.
"Commercial pressure washers are routinely transported by contractors from jobsite to jobsite, and the TransportGuard System ensures the unit will be ready to run when the contractor needs it," said Dan Roche, marketing manager at Briggs & Stratton Portable Power & Cleaning Systems.
The new model gives contractors a 35 ft. steel braided hose to tackle the toughest cleaning jobs, while a 5-year limited commercial warranty offers unmatched peace of mind. Designed for commercial use, the system is mounted on a welded frame with easy-to-maneuver 13-inch pneumatic wheels, improved in-use storage and is protected by a steel brushguard. A commercial-duty Triplex Plunger Pump with an adjustable pressure regulator and 5 Quick-Connect professional-grade Spray Tips give the user versatility for any job application.
The new pressure washer will go on sale at Lowe's beginning this December. For more information, visit briggsandstratton.com.
*Pressure washers are rated in accordance to the Pressure Washer Manufacturers' Association (PWMA) standard PW101-2010. ** All power levels are stated gross horsepower at 3600 rpm per SAE J1940 as rated by Briggs & Stratton.
