Zoom on the Ryobi RY80940B

  • precise spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and effectively removing stubborn stains
  • soft cleaning of delicate surfaces, and gentle cleaning for larger areas with low pressure
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces

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

Power

The Ryobi RY80940B in use

The Ryobi RY80940B

Fueled by a 187cc (5.1 hp) engine, its aluminum axial cam pump can generate a forceful pressure of 3100 PSI (roughly 52 times that of a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). When these values are taken together, they yield a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.

To initiate the Honda GCV190 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer, a traditional pull-start mechanism is employed.

The pressure washer's tank has a maximum capacity of 0.25 gallon for storing gasoline., which provides an approximate runtime of 30 minutes.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design, the Ryobi RY80940B provides great mobility. The sturdy steel tubing frame ensures the longevity of the assembly, offering stability and protection for internal components, even during rigorous use. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the RY80940B convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

With a weight of 65 lbs, the unit is comfortably maneuverable for most users, allowing for efficient handling during cleaning tasks. Its 187cc Honda GCV190 engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Still, the RY80940B's two 12" wheels ensure easy handling and maneuverability.

Main Features

The Ryobi RY80940B comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a 5-in-1 nozzle and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is facilitated by the inclusion of a dedicated tank. Utilizing an automatic soap dilution mechanism, the Ryobi RY80940B accurately mixes detergent to the defined ratio of 20:1, enhancing cleaning efficiency. Detergent is automatically added to the water when "soap" is selected on the 5-in-1 nozzle.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of convenient hooks, the unit offers a practical solution for maintaining workspace order, allowing the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose to be neatly stored when idle.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • 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.

Other Features

  • 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: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Ryobi RY80940B comes with spray gun, wand, oil, funnel and pressure hose.
