Superb cleaning power
The Ryobi RPW110B pressure washer is capable of producing up to 110 bar of water pressure with a flow rate of up to 360 litres per hour.
It is a powerful washer with a1500W engine making it suitable for light cleaning such as that of furniture, fences, bikes, cars and even barbecue grills (check out my new Cosmo Grill XL review, by the way…)
Although it has no wheels, it weighs only 5.1kg in weight and with a compact design that makes it easy to carry around the garden. It comes with two nozzles, a foam spray bottle and a 5m hose.
An integrated handle allows you to move the pressure washer with ease to where you need it.
There’s also onboard storage for its range of accessories and this helps save space in your garden storage shed or garage.
Supplied with various accessories
Ryobi provides multiple and functional accessories for this RPW110B pressure washer. You will find the following in the box:
- A trigger gun and turbo lance
- A variable lance designed to control the intensity and width of the jet
- A detergent bottle
- A detergent tank adaptor for the spray nozzle
- A 5m hose
- A 360-degree spray gun, which allows adjustment of the spray angle without changing grip
- A path cleaning brush to fit the setup
There’s even a brush and deck scrubber to tackle dirt on hard surfaces, though these must be purchased separately.
Ease of assembly and use
The Ryobi pressure washer needs only a small amount of assembly with the help of supplied straightforward instructions. With no wheels to attach, you just need to attach the handle, storage racks and the hose to the main body.
It is a compact machine and is light enough to lift and move easily around the garden, making up for its lack of wheels.
Given the size of this machine it performs very well, and the choice of nozzle spray plus the pulsating fan adds to its effectiveness. It also has storage for the power cord, 5m hose and lance.
Located at the base of this machine is the motor and pump. The noise coming from these parts is 90dB, though it reduces to 76dB at the operator level, which is at the end of the hose at about 5 metres out.
It means you will hear the machine running, but if you find the sound annoying or if you’re using it for extended periods of time, just wear ear protection.
What are People Saying…?
Among the highly rated attributes of this pressure washer include ease of assembly, ease of use, and lightweight design. One user said:
“Small and compact – good selection of accessories, no attachments are included for heavy floor cleaning scrubbing head etc – but this wasn’t important to me – easy to set up some slight assembly required for the handles and holders – screwdriver required. I use mine for the cars I feel this was value for money in comparison to other brands and prices.”
What’s the Downside…?
Perhaps the only flaw is the lack of wheels. However, this shouldn’t be an issue because this model is pretty lightweight (Only 5kgs) so you can always lift it from one place to another without any hassle.
