Power

The Ryobi RY141812G in use

The Ryobi RY141812G

With a 13 amp motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 1800 PSI (roughly 30 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 RY141812G's cleaning power of 2160 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Ryobi RY141812G'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 D17.1 x W12.1 x H12.1 in, the Ryobi RY141812G makes mobility one of its core strengths. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the RY141812G convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 18 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Even though the RY141812G doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY141812G's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a 0.25 gal tank. The Ryobi RY141812G has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: This washer 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: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its 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 RY141812G's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY141812G compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

Note: Even though we couldn’t list its price on this page, our research indicates that some retailers sell this unit around $140.

  • The Ryobi RY141812G and its 1800 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $120 and $150. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX3500, which reaches up to 2300 PSI.
  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX3200, which can reach up to 1.76 GPM.
  • Amongst similarly priced electric devices, the 2160 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the RY141812G rank as low. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Realm BY02-BCMH and its 4025 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
