The Ryobi RY802925

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a powerful 212 cc engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 2900 PSI (almost 48 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 7250 Cleaning Units.

The engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 64.9 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 212 cc engine and steel frame. Since the RY802925 has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

The Ryobi RY802925's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY802925 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Reaching a 2900 PSI max pressure output, the Ryobi RY802925 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other gas-powered units in the $240 to $300 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Simpson CM61083, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
  • With a water flow of up to 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the upper end of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Powerhorse 89897, with 2.6 GPM.
  • The 7250 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), of the RY802925 result in an average cleaning efficiency, compared to similarly priced gas-powered units. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Simpson CM61083 and its 8500 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
