As the Predator 2000 and the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart compare to the Predator 2000.

  • Engine: The 110cc engine of the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart is significantly bigger than the Predator 2000's engine, which has a displacement of 79.7cc.
  • Power: With a running wattage of 1700 W, the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1600 running watts of the Predator 2000. Moreover, compared to the 2000 starting watts of the Predator 2000, the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart and its starting wattage of 2200 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the Predator 2000 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart offers a maximum runtime of 8 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour), the Predator 2000 is more fuel efficient than the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart and its 0.13 GPH. The former's operation will therefore cost less in terms of the money spent on gasoline. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart and <5% for the Predator 2000) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 58 dBA, the noise emitted by the Predator 2000 is slightly lower than the 59 dBA of the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart and its dimensions of L21" x W12.5" x H17.35" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L22.6" x W12.6" x H18.5" of the Predator 2000.
  • Weight: With a weight of 49 lbs, the 2000 is slightly less heavy than the P2200 PowerSmart (which weighs 54 lbs).
  • Portability: The Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart has a triple handle and the Predator 2000 a standard handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart and the Predator 2000 both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart's and the Predator 2000's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Predator 2000 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Technology: The Predator 2000 benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Secure technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe.
