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

In a nutshell, the Ryobi RY803000E is a heavy duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Ryobi RY803000E in use

The Ryobi RY803000E

Powered by a 160 cc (4.4 hp) engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3000 PSI (around 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Ryobi RY803000E has a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered unit's Honda GCV160 engine is convenient and reliable, thanks to its dual starting mechanism: you can either choose the practical electric start, or the traditional pull-start mechanism. The electric start requires a 12V battery, which is included.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.25 gallon.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D26.5 x W17.5 x H37.5 in, the Ryobi RY803000E provides great mobility. 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.

With a weight of 71 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. 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

The Ryobi RY803000E's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a dedicated tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Ryobi RY803000E will dilute the detergent with a 20:1 ratio. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to 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 table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

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, which can achieve a PSI of up to 3000, falls behind the other gas-powered pressure washers in the $400 to $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 DXPW3625 with a PSI of 3600.
  • This washer, with a GPM of 2.4 (gallons per minute) has a somewhat lower water flow value compared to devices in its price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Lifan LFQ3370, which can reach up to 3 GPM.
  • The RY803000E has 7200 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other gas-powered devices of this price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Lifan LFQ3370 with its 9900 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
