With a 13 amp motor, its aluminum axial pump delivers a pressure of 1700 PSI (roughly 28 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Ryobi RY14122's cleaning power of 2040 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Ryobi RY14122's motor can be easily started by a convenient ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY14122 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

With a weight of only 34 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 7" wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY14122 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
