Power

The Ryobi RY141612 in use

The Ryobi RY141612

Powered by a 13-amp universal motor, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 1600 PSI (around 27 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). With these values combined, the Ryobi RY141612 boasts a cleaning power of 1920 Cleaning Units.

As an electric pressure washer, the RY141612 initiates operation effortlessly with a straightforward ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

Emphasizing mobility as a core feature, the Ryobi RY141612 boasts a portable design and approximate dimensions of L12.5 x W10 x H9.5 in. The handle adds to the RY141612 convenience of transport. Integrated within the frame, the handle guarantees enduring strength and eliminates the risk of separation.

This unit's weight of 16.4 lbs makes it a breeze to carry around, perfect for on-the-go cleaning tasks. The use of an plastic frame helps maintain its lightweight build. Though lacking wheels, the RY141612's light weight eliminates the need for them.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY141612 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The Ryobi RY141612 features an automatic soap dilution mechanism that dilutes detergent according to a predefined ratio of 20:1. Attachment of a soap nozzle prompts the pressure washer to automatically introduce and blend the detergent with the water.
  • Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is included with the unit. But, there is no proper storage solution designed for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: This unit includes a classic ergonomic spray gun and a wand.
  • Nozzles: Refer to the table below for details on the 3 included nozzles and their recommended surface applications.
