Zoom on the Ryobi RY80544

In a nutshell, the Ryobi RY80544 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

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

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The Ryobi RY80544 in use

The Ryobi RY80544

The Ryobi RY80544's aluminum axial cam pump, powered by a powerful 212 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (approximately 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Ryobi RY80544 thus has a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.

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

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.66 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The Ryobi RY80544 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W19 x H35 in. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY80544 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 65 lbs. Its 212 cc Ryobi engine and steel tubing frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. But, as the RY80544 does have a set of two 12" wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY80544 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a dedicated tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Ryobi RY80544 will dilute the detergent with a 20:1 ratio. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

The Ryobi RY80544's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY80544 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Ryobi RY80544, with a maximum pressure output of 3100 PSI, has an average pressure output, when considering gas-powered units in $300 to $400 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer makes it one of the better performing units in terms of the delivered volume of water. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Predator 3100, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
  • Reaching up to 7750 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the RY80544 is one of the more efficient amongst its similarly priced peers. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Predator 3200, which can reach up to 8960 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
