The included 18V ONE+ Lithium+ battery starts up your pressure washer with a simple press of a button – getting you back to work faster and the job done sooner.

Zoom on the Ryobi RY803111

The Ryobi RY803111, a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

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

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

Power

The Ryobi RY803111 in use

The Ryobi RY803111

Powered by a 196 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3200 PSI (around 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Ryobi RY803111 has a cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

The Ryobi engine of this gas-powered pressure washer provides convenience and reliability, as it offers a dual starting mechanism: you can either choose the practical electric start, or the traditional pull-start mechanism. The electric start requires a 18V ONE+ Lithium+ battery, which is included.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.25 gallon, which provides an approximate runtime of 45 minutes.

Design & Handling

The Ryobi RY803111 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D26.5 x W17.5 x H37.5 in. Its sturdy steel tubing frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY803111 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 72 lbs. Its 196 cc Ryobi engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. But, as the RY803111 does have a set of two 12" wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

    Electric start after using a few times won’t work, won’t turn over with pull cord start either. Tried buying new batteries, changed
    oil and gas, checked spark plug. Home Depot won’t return or exchange it. Waste of money.

    + PROS: Worked well the couple times it worked
    - CONS: Won’t start
