Zoom on the Ryobi RY142300

In a nutshell, the Ryobi RY142300 is a medium duty pressure washer that allows:

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The Ryobi RY142300 in use

The Ryobi RY142300

Using a 13 amp induction motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2300 PSI (roughly 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 2760 Cleaning Units.

The RY142300 is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started 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 hand truck design, the Ryobi RY142300 provides great mobility. Its sturdy steel tubing frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY142300 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 49 lbs. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 12" wheels.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY142300 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 1 gal tank. The Ryobi RY142300 has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its metal 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.
