Ryobi Pressure Washer


Pressure washers have so many uses around the house and we’ve previously mentioned reasons to rent a pressure washer, but for a bit more money you can buy a pressure washer of your own and use it on your own schedule. A pressure washer makes quick cleaning of driveways, decks, siding, windows and more.


Ryobi provided us with an opportunity to test out their 3100 psi pressure washer. It’s powered by a 187cc Honda four-stroke gas engine which started right up for us and is very quiet even when powered up. We loved the Ryobi “idle down” feature on their inverter generator and that same feature is standard on this pressure washer which makes for greater fuel efficiency.



This Pressure Washer also features many accessory advantages, including a 5-in-1 nozzle for easy spray pattern adjustments, and a PowerFlex high-pressure hose for easy hose management. All backed by Ryobi’s 3 year warranty.

Here’s a quick video of the Ryobi pressure washer in action.
