The Ryobi RY142022's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY142022 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- Reaching a 2000 PSI max pressure output, the Ryobi RY142022 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other electric units in the $170 to $200 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX3501, which reaches up to 2300 PSI.
- In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Westinghouse WPX2300e, with a GPM of 1.76.
- With a rather impressive value of 2400 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the RY142022 has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Kärcher K4 and its 2850 Cleaning Units.
As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Ryobi RY142022 is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
