Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Deyewhyguy Right out the box perfect
Works great easy to assemble only tool needed was a screwdriver for the wand holder. I just got it on Friday so I haven't had a chance to use the soap otherwise excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by domii Best pressure washer under $200 I've seen
After going through 2 Karchers in the last two years, and reading the reviews on all the other under $200 Pressure washers available at the major retailers, that all look like the came from the same factory in China, I decided to give this Ryobi a try.
Pretty impressive machine so far. And cheap considering what you get, very good quality parts and well engineered, very close to a good commercial gas powered machine.
I like that it comes with 3 nozzles, and everything has a place on this machine. An actual detergent tank rather than some cheap plastic tube.
The all-aluminum pump sold it for me, I hope it lasts longer than what I've experienced with others that have the plastic pumps, that always seem to crack and leak.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tudval Good design
After owning 3 such machines in the past 5 years and having different issues that were too costly to repair, I researched most units on the market and came across this affordable little machine that seems to address all of my concerns. While I cannot vouch for durability, the two accessories most likely to break, the wand and the pressure hose, have standard couplings that makes them easy and cheap to replace with generic parts (they do break, especially in cold weather, and most manufacturers only guarantee them for 90 days).
Only used it a couple of times and it performed well, there's enough pressure to handle any job for the average homeowner and the bonus Turbo Nozzle is great for cleaning cedar decks or washing the car.

This Ryobi feels solid and well engineered.
I would recommend to the engineers however to have quick connects on the hose (the one in the back is hard to reach) and to have a removable detergent dispenser. There is no way to empty it if you want to use another type of detergent.
I have used a 1500 psi 1.3 gpm washer. This 1700 psi 1.2 gpm Ryobi does a much nicer job and, on cleaning the deck boards again, they were twice as clean as the job done by the other washer. It also cleaned a deck chair that the other could not.
It is nice that it takes standard nozzle tips.
I love the design. It is easy to roll up the hose and electrical cable, easy to move it, and it would be difficult to tip over.
For the $169 price you get a 3 year warranty and can buy another year from home Depot for $15. Amazing! If you read other reviews you will notice some of other electric pressure washers are reported to have failed after a year or two.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chuckp Leaking oil after the first hour of use
After using for a few hours, I was ready to give this a 5/5, until I noticed oil leaking from the pump. Seems like a blown gasket or something. Not good. Returning this one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friedpope Great for basic house work...
Just enough power with the 10deg nozzle to clean 2 years worth of moss and algae off my driveway and sidewalks over about 10hrs of work. I imagine having a higher pressure would have helped me get this done faster but for the price and size this thing works great.
Start-up takes some time as you need to flush air out of your inlet hose to avoid stalling the pump, a little planning and water wasting easily solves this though.
The only gripe I have is the extremely weak outer sheath on the hose, make sure the tube doesn't get hung up on anything while you're rocking the gun back and forth across the pavement or you'll saw right through it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SherwoodOregon GREAT PRESSURE WASHER!!
I am very hesitant about buying anything regardless of price and reviews. After going to my local Home Depot and talking to the sales associate about it, I decided to pull the trigger and buy it. I'm glad I did. It was already assembled at the store and took it straight home to try. I was shocked of the power and ease of using it. I wouldn't hesitate buying another one and would highly recommend it to anyone. I am TOTALLY happy with my purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tonejon Great results for $160
Read many of the recent reviews and was skeptical about this Ryobi at this price point. I needed to clean a 20'x10' concrete patio. The box said this unit was not rated for concrete -but to my surprise this little guy cut right through years of dirt on concrete with ease. I used the (black) turbo nozzle and finished the job in about 2.5 hours, running the electric motor full on. I like the motor cut off feature when you release the spray trigger. This unit is small enough yet powerful enough for general around the house cleaning. We'll see if it makes the 6mos stretch, or longer -I sure hope so.
