Power

The Ryobi RY14122 in use

The Ryobi RY14122

Powered by a 13 amp motor, its aluminum axial pump can deliver a pressure of 1700 PSI (around 28 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Ryobi RY14122 has a cleaning power of 2040 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the RY14122 is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

The Ryobi RY14122 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D17.3 x W17.8 x H18.5 in. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY14122 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Standing at only 34 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. A set of two 7" wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY14122's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
