Zoom on the Ryobi RY80588A

In summary, the Ryobi RY80588A is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

The Ryobi RY80588A in use

The Ryobi RY80588A

With a powerful 212cc engine, its aluminum axial pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values as per PW101-2010), resulting in the Ryobi RY80588A's cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Ryobi engine.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W19 x H35 in, the Ryobi RY80588A offers great mobility. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY80588A convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Weighing 74 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its 212cc Ryobi engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 10" wheels, the RY80588A remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

Along with the Ryobi RY80588A itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a dedicated tank. The Ryobi RY80588A has an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which dilutes the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: Stay prepared for any job with Ryobi RY80588A's handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store any nozzles and accessories which you may need for the job.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Ryobi RY80588A also comes with spray gun, tool kit, pressure hose, wand, oil and funnel.

The Ryobi RY80588A's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Ryobi RY80588A compared to similarly priced pressure washers.

This unit is now discontinued, but used to be sold around $430.

  • The Ryobi RY80588A, with a maximum pressure output of 3200 PSI, had an average pressure output, when considering gas-powered units in $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 Simpson PS61201 with a PSI of 3500.
  • This washer reaches 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, had an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Lifan LFQ3370E, with 3 GPM.
  • As the RY80588A has a total of 8000 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), it found itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced gas-powered units. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370E and its 9900 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:
