Description

This RYOBI 3000 PSI Pressure Washer is the first of its kind while featuring both a Honda engine and electric start functionality. The built in battery maintainer keeps the included 12V battery charged between uses – getting you back to work faster and the job done sooner. This powerful pressure washer features a reliable and professional GCV Honda Engine, producing 3000 pounds per square inch of pressure (PSI) and delivers 2.4 gallons per minute (GPM) of cleaning force.

Zoom on the Ryobi RY803000E

The Ryobi RY803000E is a heavy duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Ryobi RY803000E in use

The Ryobi RY803000E

Using a 160 cc (4.4 hp) engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (roughly 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

The Honda GCV160 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer provides convenience and reliability, as it offers a dual starting mechanism: you may choose the more convenient electric start, or the classic pull-start mechanism. A 12V battery, which is included in the package, is required for the electric start.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.25 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

The Ryobi RY803000E is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D26.5 x W17.5 x H37.5 in. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY803000E convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 71 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 160 cc Honda GCV160 engine and steel tubing frame. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" wheels, the RY803000E remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

Along with the Ryobi RY803000E itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a dedicated tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Ryobi RY803000E 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: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its metal wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

  • Accessories: The Ryobi RY803000E comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get wand, funnel, spray gun, pressure hose and oil.
  • Emissions: The Ryobi RY803000E is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, the sale and purchase of this pressure washer is permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

The Ryobi RY803000E's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY803000E compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

This unit is now discontinued, but used to be sold around $410.

  • The Ryobi RY803000E, a device which can produce up to 3000 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the gas-powered pressure washers in the $400-500 price range. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the DeWalt DXPW3425 with a PSI of 3400.
  • Considering its water flow, this washer, with a GPM (gallons per minute) of 2.4 is in the average compared to other 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 Lifan LFQ3370 has the highest GPM of 3.
  • The 7200 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), of the RY803000E sit at an average, in reference to other gas-powered units of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
