Zoom on the Ryobi RY803223

The Ryobi RY803223 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach 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 RY803223 in use

The Ryobi RY803223

The Ryobi RY803223's axial cam pump, powered by a 196 cc 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 2.3 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). The Ryobi RY803223 thus has a cleaning power of 7360 Cleaning Units.

The KOHLER SH270 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.87 gallon.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design, the Ryobi RY803223 provides great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY803223 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 66.9 lbs. Its 196 cc KOHLER SH270 engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. The RY803223 can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY803223 in use

The Ryobi RY803223

Along with the Ryobi RY803223 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a 5-in-1 nozzle and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a dedicated tank. The Ryobi RY803223 includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. Detergent is automatically added to the water when "soap" is selected on the 5-in-1 nozzle.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 35 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzle: a 5-in-1 nozzle is included.

    Ryobi's 5-in-1 nozzle Ryobi's 5-in-1 nozzle offers five spray pattern settings (0°, 25°, 40°, short-range soap, long-range soap). Selection of a specific spray pattern is made by simply rotating the spray selector to the desired setting.
