Ryobi RY80 2800 pressure washer review

  • Power Control Dial Easily Adjusts Pressure
  • Powerful Honda Engine – 2800 PSI of Force Handles Tough Jobs
  • Delivers a Superior Clean to Decks, Windows and Driveways

The Ryobi 2800 PSI Power Control Pressure Washer is engineered to handle even your toughest jobs. With a powerful Honda GCV160 gasoline engine, this Ryobi Pressure Washer delivers 2800-PSI of force for quick cleaning of driveways, decks, windows, and other areas around the house. Featuring a durable, compact frame design, this pressure washer is designed for easy transport. The integrated power control gauge rotates for convenient, adjustable pressure. The on-board detergent tank offers hassle-free cleaning by eliminating the need to drag a bucket and hose behind you. For added convenience, the Ryobi 2800-PSI Pressure Washer is equipped with on-board accessory storage. The Ryobi 2800-PSI Gas Pressure Washer is backed with the Ryobi 3-year limited warranty and is guaranteed to deliver results for years to come.

This gas powered pressure washer from Ryobi delivered powerful, effective cleaning, plus other welcome pluses. Ryobi chose a Honda engine for its track record of durability, but there’s also a built-in soap tank, easy handling, fuel shutoff–which draws gas from the fuel system to keep it from fouling parts–and a twist control on the wand to adjust water flow. For any model with a detachable metal shaft, you can install an aftermarket twist control. And although we found the washer fairly loud, as with most other gas models, the 25-foot hose lets you keep it far enough away.

(Note: Because of the greater risk of injury, we recommend no pressure washer that comes with a zero-degree replaceable nozzle or setting, no matter how well it cleans.)

Ryobi RY80 2800 pressure washer Test Results

Very easy to move and transport. Requires storage of gasoline. Easy hose storage. Wand not as convenient to remove. Very easy to use and read on-off switch.

Ryobi RY80 2800 pressure washer review

This Ryobi pressure washer is part of the Pressure washer test program. In our lab tests, Pressure washer models like the Ryobi RY80 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Cleaning: Versatility and efficiency in cleaning a range of surfaces. The better performers have multiple spray patterns that can cover various cleaning chores, from light, superficial cleaning to deep cleaning of concrete, decking, and other hard-to-clean surfaces.

Power: A combination of pressure, measured in pounds per square inch (psi), and flow, measured in gallons per minute (gpm). Higher pressure results in better cleaning of a given surface; coupled with a higher flow as well, you’ll get the job done the fastest.

Noise: A combination of measurements, based on dBA, reflecting the proximity of the operator to the pressure washer. While our Noise score averages measurements taken close by the machine and at the end of the hose’s typical reach, we strongly strongly recommend hearing protection for working close by a gas-powered model in particular.
