Description

This RYOBI 3200 PSI Pressure Washer is the first of its kind while featuring ONE+ Electric Start. 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. This powerful pressure washer produces 3200 pounds per square inch of pressure (PSI) and delivers 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM) of cleaning force.

Zoom on the Ryobi RY803111

In a nutshell, the Ryobi RY803111 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • precise spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and effectively removing stubborn stains
  • mild cleaning for delicate surfaces, and low-pressure cleaning for broader areas
  • utilizing cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces clean

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

The Ryobi RY803111's aluminum axial cam pump, powered by a 196cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (approximately 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Thus, the Ryobi RY803111 achieves a cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

Featuring a dual starting mechanism, the Ryobi engine of this gas-powered pressure washer ensures convenience and reliability: you can opt for the more convenient electric start or rely on the classic pull-start mechanism. A 18V ONE+ Lithium+ battery, which is included in the package, is required for the electric start.

Containing gasoline, the pressure washer's fuel tank can hold a maximum of 0.25 gallon., which provides an approximate runtime of 45 minutes.

Design & Handling

The Ryobi RY803111's mobility is greatly enhanced by its hand truck design. The steel tubing frame's robustness ensures the assembly's longevity, maintaining stability and protecting internal components, even in the harshest environments. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY803111 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

With its weight clocking in at 72 lbs, this unit's heftiness can't be ignored, presenting significant difficulties for users who need to lift and transport it, especially over uneven terrain. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 196cc Ryobi engine and steel tubing frame. Despite this, the presence of two 12" wheels reduces the complexity of moving the RY803111, even on rugged surfaces.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY803111 in use

The Ryobi RY803111

The Ryobi RY803111 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a 1 gal tank. The Ryobi RY803111 includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. The detergent is automatically mixed with the water flow by the pressure washer when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: Utilizing a set of convenient hooks, the unit offers a convenient solution for storing the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose when it's not in use, keeping it neatly organized.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its metal wand.
  • Nozzles: Review the table below to learn about the 4 included nozzles and the surfaces they're recommended for.

    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
