Zoom on the Ryobi RY141900
In summary, the Ryobi RY141900 is a medium duty pressure washer, which provides:
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its aluminum axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (almost 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2400 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the RY141900 gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
The Ryobi RY141900 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D16.5 x W19.2 x H34 in. Its sturdy steel tubing frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY141900 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Standing at only 32 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 7" wheels.
Along with the Ryobi RY141900 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 stored in a removable 1 gal tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Ryobi RY141900 will dilute the detergent with a 20:1 ratio. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of 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 RY141900, which can reach a PSI of 2000, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other electric units that cost between $120 and $160. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR that can reach up to 2400 PSI.
- 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 you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Sun Joe SPX2866-MAX, that can deliver up to 1.8 GPM.
- With 2400 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the RY141900 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR, which can reach up to 4200 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
