Q: Is the surface cleaner compatible with the 20358 Model
by Cris on March 24, 2012

A: The only surface cleaner we carry that would be compatible with the Briggs & Stratton model 20358 is the PowerWasher surface cleaner model 81K045SH.

I am posting a link below to this product on our website:

Q: I have misplaced my user manual for my Briggs & Stratton 1800 electric pressure washer model # 20358, which I purchased from you. I have unsuccessfully tried to find it online. Any suggstions for me? Thanks!
by Gay on March 24, 2012

A: I am posting a link below to this product on our site. If you click on the specs tab under the picture of this product, you will see off to the right, a link to the owner's manual of this model pressure washer. You can simply download it right off of our website. If you wanted a hard copy of this manual, you would need to contact Briggs & Stratton at 800-743- 4115.

B & S Model 20358
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Bill,

I've used warm water in my Husky washer for years without a problem. Although this unit (Briggs) says cold, I know some of these units can go to 140 degrees F. Which of these "cold" water units can go to 140?

by Dave from Nebraska on August 28, 2011

A: All "cold water" units can accept water up to 104 F degrees without causing any damage to the pump. This Briggs & Stratton model 20358 is one of those units. Unfortunately we do not carry any residential/consumer grade electric pressure washers that can accept water up to 140 F degrees. Only pressure washers with CAT PUMPs or hot water kits can accept water up to 140 F degrees.

Q: hi bill i was wondering cause i been looking at the Hyde 28" Pivot Nozzle Pressure Washer Wand and wondering if there is any other kits or anthing i dont care about price i just want a idea
or if this hyde can work on this presure washer

by Anonymous on August 14, 2011

A: Unfortunately this Hyde wand would not work with that pressure washer. The Hyde wand that you would want to purchase is model 28420. We currently do not carry this model but we are in the process of adding it to our site. If you check back next week, we should have it listed on our site.

Q: Will the Karcher 4 piece wand extension set work with the B&S #203358 pressure washer
by Daniel from Minnesota on June 08, 2011

A: No, that kit will not work, those are only going to work on Karcher branded pressure washers. As of right now, there is not an extension kit that will work with the Briggs and Stratton pressure washer.

Q: Can the output water pressure be adjusted so that I can include both concrete and household siding cleaning? How is this pressure adjusted? What is the lowest PSI?
by Claire & Oscar Rummel from Kentucky on June 08, 2011

A: The pressure on these is fixed. Now they are adjustable at the nozzle end, this is still going to put out the full pressure, but the fan spray is wider, giving you a less pressure approach.

Q: I have orederd one would like to know the sizes of the brass quick connects to buy at my hardware store. Thank you can't wait to receive the unit
by Yvonne Sigman from Pennsylvania on May 09, 2011

A: The size of the quick connects, if you are talking about for the hose connection would be 3/4", this would be standard for the most part for a garden hose connection.

Q: Will the 20358 briggs handle 140 degree water service?
by Tom West from Minnesota on May 07, 2011

A: I would not suggest using this pressure washer in more than 100 degree water. A cold water pressure washer is exactly that. If you are looking to use a pressure washer with hotter water, you would need to go with a warm water pressure washer.

Q: I cannot get the tank on both sides of my Briggs & Stratton 1800 PSI Pressure Washer to work. I fill it up with c cleaner, but the level never goes down. In otherwords, it doesn't work.

How do i make it work???

by JoanJones from Oregon on April 18, 2011

A: You have to make sure that you are rotating the wand to the low pressure setting in order to pull detergent from the tanks. If you are already doing this, you might have a defective injector. If this is the case, this defect would be covered under the warranty as long as the unit is less than 1 year old.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Can an extension cord be used or is it limited to the 25 foot power cord it comes with? How will this unit work for cleaning of a ski boat?
by Jeff from Idaho on April 04, 2011

A: Using an extension cord is not recommended with electric pressure washers. However, if the situation requires you to do so, you can use a 25' cord as long as it is an outdoor rated 14 gauge cord. You may increase the extension cord length up to 50' but then you have to increase the size of the cord to a 12 gauge cord.

Q: Do you ship this item to Australia? If so, how much would shipping be?

by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Hi Bill, it appears the 20358 electric PW is the best one I can find. Reviews show some are coming not working and 2 problems; one about the soap container and worse the bottom hose plastic threads stripping out. Remedy is a brase double fitting that a shop would have to put on. I want one of these but scared with all the problems, I just don't need stress at 60 now with problems. Can U sell me one but first check it out that it is ok and install this brass fitting it needs so the hose doesn't leak? I need this for my decks and vinyal siding. If so I'd like to order one if we know it is all ok and this brass fitting they say should already be on it isn't and this fixes the leaks and ability to connect the hose not to stripped out threads.
Sorry to bother U but I don't know what else to do, I don't want a gas one.

Thank U very much, Jim.

by Jim Scholten from North Carolina on March 29, 2011

A: This residential electric pressure washer is a good quality machine. Briggs & Stratton have resolved the detergent tank issues that these machines had. As for the hose threading, yes the water inlet connection is plastic and can strip if you are not careful when connecting your garden hose. However, this plastic inlet fitting is not cheaply made. Unfortunately we cannot install the brass fitting on this unit prior to delivery but you can purchase a garden hose brass quick connect kit and easily attach it yourself. I'm posting a link below to the garden hose qc kit I am referring to:

Well Worth The Money
I have a very large exposed aggregate concrete driveway and it took me over 8 hrs to use a standard pressure washer wand to clean my driveway.

I spent a lot of time researching different surface cleaners and ended up buying this surface cleaner. I liked the fact that it had three nozzles and four caster wheels.

The first time I used it it only took me a little less than 4 hours to finish the driveway. It does a fantastic job and I also use it on my composite deck (large wrap around... more

Looks Great But Very Little Power
I bought this unit from PED 5/26/2011 and have used it twice. It has no more than 3 hours on it. When I received it, I was impressed with the features and the ease of assembly. Very ergonomic handle, long cord and hose, easy to switch wands to name a few things. I used it for a couple small jobs (washing my cars and truck). It didn't seem like it had much power but I didn't have anything to compare it to. I stored it in my house where it was always heated, so no chance of freezing.

Now,... more

Unable To Get Service From Briggs And Stratton - They Say Return
I have spent the better part of the warranty period on the phone with B&S trying to get this pressure washer repaired. The hose pops off due to the cheap plastic connector. I have tried several hoses and hose bibs. It's the plastic connector on the PW.

B&S had me call over a dozen dealers and I only found one who would even look at an electric motor pressure washer. Most B&S warranty dealers only work on the electric engines! After driving two towns over, waiting a week and... more

We'll be happy to contact you directly to help you resolve this. Since you've contacted us before the warranty period expired please don't worry- you're covered.

There is very little repair work done on small consumer electric appliances; it is more cost-effective to replace them. However, the warranty only covers defect in materials & workmanship, not wear and tear or abuse- which is why manufacturers want to have the units inspected before making their decision.

Awesome Machine
I just moved into my home where decks and driveway had been badly neglected. After doing research on line this was my choice.

I was impressed starting with opening the box. I spent all day Friday washing drives and decks. I was really impressed with the power and ease of working with the machine.

The fan nozzle worked fairly well but wasn't removing some of the stubborn stains, so I switched to the turbo and wow, I felt like I was taking off concrete.

I recommend the 20358 and not... more

Tanks Don't Work
My tanks have never worked it doesn't matter where you have the selector knob.
Pros: Fast
Cons: Bad Instructions
Daniel Does Not Recommend This Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Page 11 of the Owner's Manual covers soap application. Not only do you have to move the selector knob, Step 8 says you have to "slide the adjustable nozzle forward to the low pressure mode. Detergent cannot be applied in the high pressure position."

You will feel the spray nozzle click into place. This opens a valve and allows the water stream to pick up the detergent & add it to the water stream.

You also need to make sure you're using the proper dilution of pressure washer safe detergent. It needs to be thin, like water. If it's thick like dish detergent the siphon action won't pick it up.

If neither of these tips help out, this unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty. You may want to contact the folks at Briggs & Stratton, toll free, at (800) 743-4115. Please be sure to have the serial number of your unit handy when you call them.

No Service, No Parts
The hose connection is made of cheap plastic and the threads stripped. No service available, no replacement part available. The weakest link in the chain ruins an expensive unit with supposedly the best engine. Also, underpowered.

Briggs & Stratton will replace a 20358 unit that fails while still under warranty.

I purchased this machine by the selling name of Briggs and Stratton. It is nice looking and seems to be durable.

When not using the wand to wash, the motor shuts down- a very nice feature with this unit. The downside to anyone looking to buy a pressure washer, if I had to do it again go for more PSI. 1800 PSI just does not get the job done; at least 2400 PSI for a home owner.

Mechanically it has two detergent reserves. I am not getting enough detergent flow even at the maximum setting... more
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Make sure you are using pressure washer safe detergent and that it is diluted to the proper consistency. Detergent that is too thick won't be picked up by the water stream, and may ooze.

If that doesn't help, you may want to give the folks at Briggs & Stratton a call, toll free, at (800) 743-4115

Please take a look at our "How To Pick The Perfect Pressure Washer" buyer's guide to get the right PSI for your needs.

Great For The First Year
When I first got this washer it worked great cleaning my sidewalk.

Last year I had trouble getting it to power up and realized the hose connection was leaking water. I replaced a washer and it seemed to work better.

Now it starts off with a lot of power and gradually gets less and less. Sometimes it just cuts off for no reason. I would never buy another one of these, especially after reading all the trouble others have had.

Of course, none of this happened when it was under warranty.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
To keep your pressure washer healthy, you need to regularly clean the filter where the garden hose attaches. Teflon pipe thread tape (about a buck at any hardware or grocery store) will help stop leaks once the water isn't obstructed.

The Owner's Manual tells you to use a Pump Saver product before you put it in storage, and to make sure the unit is stored someplace it won't freeze. Hard freezing will drastically shorten the life of your pressure washer.

A Great Power Washer!
When my power washer arrived, the instructions said to remove the temporary plug from the water intake so I could attach my water hose to it. I tried very diligently to remove that plug. Finally I decided that it wasnt EVEN THERE! I can only hope that I did no damage, but I'm not so sure. It leaks at the intake. After seeing that the fitting I was working with was plastic, I decided not to use the metal connector I had ordered. I bought a plastic one that fit perfectly and is great. I've... more
