Zoom on the Ryobi RY141612

The Ryobi RY141612 is a light duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The Ryobi RY141612 in use

The Ryobi RY141612

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1600 PSI (almost 27 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 1920 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Ryobi RY141612'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.

Design & Handling

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L12.5 x W10 x H9.5 in, the Ryobi RY141612 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the RY141612 convenience of transport. The handle remains sturdy and will never fall apart, as it is molded in the frame.

With a weight of only 16.4 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. This light weight compensates for the fact that the RY141612 doesn't have any wheels, as it's not something necessary.

Main Features

Along with the Ryobi RY141612 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Ryobi RY141612 will dilute the detergent with a 20:1 ratio. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: The unit comes with an easy-to-connect 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose. But, there is no proper storage solution designed for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: The device comes with a classic ergonomic spray gun and a wand.
  • Nozzles: The 3 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

The Ryobi RY141612's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY141612 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Ryobi RY141612, which can achieve a PSI of up to 1600, falls behind the other electric pressure washers in the $70 to $100 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the WEN PW22 that can reach up to 2100 PSI.
  • In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX has the highest GPM of 1.8.
  • As the RY141612 has a total of 1920 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced electric units. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the WEN PW19, which can reach up to 3200 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
