Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wbhill Very good pressure washer,
This pressure washer provides plenty of power and water flow for my purposes. I use it primarily for my home and occasionally a relatives home use. It has plenty of power and water flow. The idle down feature is a useful benefit, allowing the machine to go to an idle when you release the wash lever. In this mode, you can talk to someone easily. I can't speak yet to the durability as Ive only had it about a month. However I operated it for more than 16 hours in the first two days after purchase and it operated flawlessly always easy to start and operate. The built-in hose and wand storage is a particularly nice feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dirtdude Can't beat the price
I received the pressure washer on June 13, 2016. I've used now several times and love the adjustable nozzle. I didn't think it was going to be a good as it is. Be careful when using to avoid getting any dirt in or around nozzle rotating area. It runs well with the idle down (after warm up)., Going back to the nozzle using the soap and the pressure spray patterns is just a click, click. 3100 PSI will do most any job. The fold down handle is great for easy transport and the hose is very flexible and easy to wrap. Excellent product so far.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Spudhead Worst Ever
Bought this from Home Depot. Brought it home and it worked fine the 1st time. Second use, about 2 weeks later, it was hard to start and and surged occasionally. 3 weeks later, I used it for the 3rd time. couldn't even get it to start. Even put Ethanol free gas in it from the start. Returned it and got another. The second unit started up fine, but throughout the entire 20 minutes I used it. I also used the soap nozzle, and it would not return to idle after releasing the trigger. The idle down feature is worthless. Maybe the units without this feature are fine, but not this one. You have been warned!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Washman Did a great job of cleaning concrete
My only concern since writing my previous glowing article is that do not sit it on grass, after completing the job I was doing, three days later the home owner complained about there being six perfectly round rings of dead grass about 18 inches diameter.
I called Ryobi on it and the only thing they tried to tell me was that I had left it too long without releasing the trigger that the water in the pump had reached a temperature where it is expelled from the pump. A good explanation but the only time the trigger was not spraying water was when I was moving the machine. Not a great help.
This is the first Ryobi pressure washer I have bought, usually I buy them from Northern, guess I will be going back to Northern.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrDetail123 Like the idle down feature, very powerful, nice muti-spray nozzle!
I bought this for our school to clean the gum off the sidewalks and to clean equipment and the exterior of the building. We had a 2800 psi Husky with a 160 cc Honda motor, but the pistol grip leaked and the choke had to be on all the time for it to run--plus, it didn't idle down. This has a muti-spray nozzle, 0, 15, 40, and soap function. For the money, I think it's the best one I could find when I reviewed other products. It was easy to set up, startup, and for the brief month we have owned it, works very well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LakerFan1 Would not start
After many hours of research, I selected this washer because I liked the idle down feature. Very disappointed in getting to the end of the setup and the unit would not start. Poor quality control by RYOBI.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Keebler Hard to start after several uses
Hard to start after several uses then when it does start the pressure was up and down. As soon as you release the trigger, it cuts off. The first couple of months it worked good, but what good is that now? I bought it because it had a Honda motor. Apparently Honda is not what it used to be.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Henry Great pressure first 40 days
On the 5th time of usage, looses pressure after 30 minutes and starts spitting oil out of the air filter. HD only warranties for 30 days, afterward to the manufacturer, this was 40 days old. Manufacture recommends taking to local repair shops. 1st shop changed cam pulley, no pressure afterwards like using an electric washer. Home Depot rental said it needed a carb clean non warranty 70, but I said it starts fine, just no pressure; took to 3rd repairr shop recommended by Honda. They said same thing and that this engine gcv190 is made by honda for other companies, substandard. Thought they knew and paid $77 for tune up. Now no oil leaks, but pressure not the same as original and after 30 minutes of use, it starts to smoke. Serviced Independant Electric, Home Depot, Blue Lawn & Garden. PS, at the shops there were several of these brand new with same problem, but nobody wants to open the motor. Good paper weight now.
