Zoom on the Ryobi RY141820

In summary, the Ryobi RY141820 is a light duty pressure washer, which provides:

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

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Ryobi RY141820 in use

The Ryobi RY141820

The Ryobi RY141820's axial pump, powered by a 13 amp motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (approximately 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). The Ryobi RY141820 thus has a cleaning power of 2160 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the RY141820 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

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L12.5 x W9 x H10 in, the Ryobi RY141820 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the RY141820 convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 16 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. Even though the RY141820 doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY141820'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 fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The Ryobi RY141820 has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 20 ft high-pressure hose is included with the unit. However, it doesn't feature any proper storage solution for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: This unit includes a classic ergonomic spray gun and a wand.
  • Nozzles: The 3 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

The Ryobi RY141820's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY141820 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With its 1800 PSI max pressure output, the Ryobi RY141820 is in the expected pressure range, for electric units in the $100-130 price range. As for the device with the most powerful water stream, in this price range, one of the top products is the Realm BY02-VBW-WT with 2100 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 being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the WEN PW20, with 1.76 GPM.
  • Amongst similarly priced electric devices, the 2160 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the RY141820 rank as low. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the WEN PW20, which can reach up to 3572.8 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
