Description

The RYOBI 1800 psi pressure washer is lightweight and compact, making it convenient to carry or store in small spaces. (source: Ryobi (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Ryobi RY141820

The Ryobi RY141820 is a light duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

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. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. Because the RY141820 is so lightweight, it doesn’t utilize wheels.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY141820 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Ryobi RY141820 will dilute the detergent with a 20:1 ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: This washer comes with an easy-to-connect 20 ft high-pressure hose. 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: The 3 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

  • The Ryobi RY141820, reaching a PSI of up to 1800, is one of the more powerful electric units in $80-110 price range. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the WEN PW22 with a PSI of 2100.
  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. 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 SPX2688-MAX, which can reach up to 1.8 GPM.
  • As the RY141820 has a total of 2160 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced electric units. When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the WEN PW19 and its 3200 Cleaning Units.
