High Pressure and High Flow Pressure Washers
Briggs & Stratton is launching POWERflow+ Technology on select pressure washer models. The pressure washers are available with high pressure to lift dirt and high flow to easily wash it away. In the high flow mode, POWERflow+ Technology enhances the cleaning experience by providing extended reach, power soaping, and faster rinsing capabilities.
“Homeowners can now reach places they couldn’t with conventional pressure washers because POWERflow+ boosts water and soap up to 30 feet away in our exclusive high flow mode,” says Kimberly Raduenz, Briggs & Stratton. “The technology helps clean second story windows, eaves and gutters, and even blasts away hard-to-reach cobwebs and insect nests. POWERflow+ technology also helps save time because it minimizes the need for additional hoses, ladders, buckets, and brushes to reach areas that were previously out of reach.”
The force behind POWERflow+ is in the Briggs & Stratton-designed, patent-pending pressure washer pump with two separate cleaning modes. The high-pressure mode is ideal for cleaning the toughest stains, while the high-flow mode delivers up to 5 gallons per minute to power-rinse away dirt, soap, and debris. The high-flow mode also makes it better to use for washing delicate surfaces, such as vehicles.
The technology is a system of components working to deliver the high-flow capability. Water is sent from the pump to the specially designed 30-foot hose and into the custom-engineered POWERflow+ gun with a soft grip handle. Water then flows into the seven-in-one handle. This timesaving pressure washer nozzle with one-handed use (similar to a garden hose nozzle) allows you to change from high pressure to high flow, without changing nozzles, and propels the stream up to 30 feet.
This technology is available in two gas-powered pressure washer models with Briggs & Stratton Professional Series OHV Engines and features up to 3,000 max psi in high-pressure mode and up to 5 gallons per minute in high-flow mode. One unit offers a standard recoil start for $399, while the other is equipped with Briggs & Stratton’s Push Button Electric Start for $499.
In addition to the gas-powered units, an electric pressure washer model is available that features up to 1,800 max psi and up to 4 gallons per minute of water flow for $299.
