Ryobi Power Washer Giveaway

As a young child I used to pick up spending money by washing cars in the alley behind our house.  I would have given my stingray bike for one of these babies; my how things have changed.

Ryobi asked me to give tpower wash 1his 3100 PSI Power Washer a thorough going over to see how well it works. I have used the one at the car wash, but I have never used a personal one before.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I opened the box. There was some assembly required, but just simple stuff like putting on the handle and hooking up the hose.

It’s on wheels so it’s easy to move around. Even when it is in operation, you can easily maneuver it from one place to another.

It has a Honda motor on it, so I am assuming it will last like all the other Honda motors. In fact, let’s look at what the Ryobi Website has to say about it:

Includes:

·         RY80940 Pressure Washer

·         Trigger Handle

·         25′ Hose

·         5-n-1 Nozzle

·         Spray Wand

·         12 oz. 10W30 Oil

·         Operator’s Manual

Features:

  • Easy-Start 187 cc GCV190 HONDA Gasoline Engine
  • Idle Down Technology: Decreases fuel consumption and increases runtime, runs up to 40% quieter when trigger is released, increases the life of engine and pump
  • 5-N-1 Nozzle: 0º, 25º, 40º, Long-Range Soap, Short-Range Soap
  • Includes 25′ PowerFlexTM Ultra Flexible High Pressure Hose
  • Longer Lasting Maintenance- Free Aluminum Head Pump
  • Convenient On-Board Detergent Tank

The 5-in-1 nozzle is really a great feature. If I want to give a mist over, I can, and when I want to BLAST it, I can do that as well! All you have to do is turn the nozzle and spray to your heart’s content.

You want to be sure to use “Power Washer” products in the soaping compartment. Don’t use detergents and products that aren’t specifically for a “Power Washer”. Other products may damage or clog the pump. However, you can get soap or wash and wax products to clean and wax your car, trailer, foundation, etc., etc., etc.

The Ryobi Power Washer comes with oil for the engine. I just put it in using the funnel that is also included. I always add stabilizer to the gasoline before putting it into things like the Power Washer or Generators because you don’t use them ever day like you do your car. And I only had to pull the cord to start the engine about 8-10 times the first time in order to start it. The next time it took only 2-3 pulls. The reason it took more pulls the first time is because it didn’t have any gas in it. Thereafter it was easy to start, although it wasn’t hard to start it the first time.

I was washing the car to test it out when my wife said, “Let me try it.” And she washed the front of the house, all the windows, and even the concrete patio in front of the house before she handed it back to me. Total time to wash and rinse the car, house, and patio was about 15-20 minutes. If you want to include the time it took to get it out, fill the soap container, hook up the garden hose, and put everything away, it probably took under an hour! Try doing that with a bucket of soap and a hose. The Ryobi Power Washer is worth its weight in gold. Yes it is light weight, but the price of gold is high.

If you are looking to purchase a good Power Washer, Ryobi has an excellent product here. It is backed by Ryobi’s 3-Year warranty and I am sure it will last a long time.

Our Deck is green and our siding has mold growing all over it. I especially like the idea that its 40% quieter so it won’t disturb my neighbors (the church)
