Zoom on the Ryobi RY1418MT

In summary, the Ryobi RY1418MT is a light duty pressure washer, which provides:

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

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

Power

The Ryobi RY1418MT in use

The Ryobi RY1418MT

With a 13 amp universal 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 RY1418MT's cleaning power of 2160 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the RY1418MT 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 D20.5 x W12.4 x H12.6 in, the Ryobi RY1418MT makes mobility one of its core strengths. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The telescopic handle further eases storage and offers a convenient pulling height, allowing effortless transportation.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 21 lbs. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two wheels.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY1418MT in use

The Ryobi RY1418MT

The Ryobi RY1418MT comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Ryobi RY1418MT will dilute the detergent with a 20:1 ratio. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 25 ft ⌀1/4" 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 3 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY1418MT compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Ryobi RY1418MT with its 1800 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other electric pressure washers in the $120-160 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR with 2400 PSI.
  • This washer, with a GPM of 1.2 (gallons per minute) has a somewhat lower water flow value compared to devices in its price range. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX2866-MAX has the highest GPM of 1.8.
  • The RY1418MT's Cleaning Units, 2160 CU (PSI x GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to electric devices of similar price. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR and its 4200 Cleaning Units.
