Main Features

  • A high-speed brushless induction motor
  • Four quick-connect high-pressure spray tips
  • Easy foldable design with military-grade steel
  • Integrated 1/2 gallon detergent tank

Turbo Nozzle

Turbo Nozzle

The Briggs and Stratton S2000 pressure washer comes equipped with a turbo nozzle that gives it more power to clean 40% faster than comparable models. This unique feature helps save you washing time as it significantly increases water pressure and velocity.

The turbo nozzle concentrates the water flowing through the hose, making it easier for the Briggs and Stratton S2000 to remove caked mud, grit, and soil. Another great facet is that it’s detachable, making a switch between the regular and turbo nozzles a breeze. Few products within this product’s range come fitted with a high-quality turbo nozzle that works as effectively as the one coming with the Briggs and Stratton S2000 power washer.

Durable Brushless Induction Motor

With its advanced brushless induction motor, the Briggs and Stratton S2000 can generate a powerful 2000psi of water pressure with relatively low noise levels. The high-quality brushless induction motor is durable enough to last for years, even with minimal maintenance effort. This feature alone places the Briggs and Stratton S2000 a few steps ahead of power washers using a traditional motor.

Though the Briggs and Stratton S2000 pressure washer is more powerful than its rivals, it also creates less noise thanks to this advanced motor technology.

The experts at Briggs and Stratton even went out of their way to ensure that even when folded, the S2000 can readily fit in the trunk of most cars.

Integrated Detergent Tank

The integrated detergent tank makes power washing anything, even easier. Simply add one to eight cups of detergent into the tank, and the machine with automatically integrate the specialized detergent into the powerful stream. Unlike many other devices, which require pre-soaping, the Briggs and Stratton S2000 doesn’t. Everything runs through the machine at high velocity, greatly simplifying the process.

What Do Customers Like


Most customers are quite satisfied with the performance of the Briggs and Stratton S2000’s brushless induction motor. Some customers have noticed little details about the device, which just makes sense.
