Very useful tool
I bought the one with wheels as I already had one without the wheels. A huge difference in ease of use. I also got the 4’ extension and highly recommend as well. I stayed completely dry for the first time ever.

Well worth it! Get the upgrade!
The RY31SCW20VNM made quick work of a back patio, long driveway, front sidewalk, and front walkway to the front door (all 30 year old concrete). I have power washed it the old fashioned way, and using this took about 1/3 of the time. I went with the upgraded model because of the castors, which confirmed it was well worth the upgrade. It glides effortlessly, and I think since it is raised up, it has less of a chance of hitting corners and edges and getting bent, which is the most common problem I read about on the cheaper one. Yes, it is double the price of the RY31SC01, but bent arms/nozzles seemed to be a common theme on that one. The RY31SCW20VNM went over expansion joints like they weren't there. The sweep around the bottom keeps the water in, and I stayed mostly dry. The box recommends 2700-3700 PSI. I used the GVC160 model, which is 2800 PSI. It had MORE than enough power to get the job done, even being on the lower end of the recommended range. I used the standard wand that came with my power washer, and did not the the extension wand that was recommended.

This is a nice little gadget to have if you own a house with concrete flat work or wooden deck. This tool will attach to any power washer with a removable nozzle, the box states 2700 to 3500psi gas power washers. I attached this to a 1900psi electric power washer and it performed awesome! So far we have cleaned the concrete floor in the pavilion and the concrete floor in the barn. Next project will be cleaning the deck on the house. This makes power washing floors much easier and much faster.

I almost can’t believe how well this surface cleaner works. For 30 years I cleaned concrete driveways and wood decks using just a spray wand. Cleaning my 900 ft2 concrete driveway required two days effort. It was slow, backbreaking work. But no longer. Today I cleaned my driveway at a rate of 400 ft2/hour while using my Ryobi surface cleaner. It’s terrific how fast and easy it was to clean my heavily soiled driveway. I had some neighbors stop by on their afternoon walks to ask me where they could get one for their pressure washer.
In addition to being much faster than a wand, the surface cleaner is so much easier on my back. I can stand up straight while moving the cleaner, and the casters carry the weight of the cleaner and wand. I can maneuver it with a single hand. The casters allow me to move the cleaner in any direction with ease. I can run it right up to the edge of the driveway without the spray digging out the dirt along the edge.
The cleaner is specified for use with washers with outlet pressures in the range 2700-3700 psi. The outlet pressure on my 25-year-old washer is considerably less than 2700 psi, but I still got good results. I think the limitation imposed by lower-than-spec-pressure is how fast I can advance the cleaner. I’d say I’m cleaning 2 to 3 times faster than I did with just the wand. A higher pressure would most likely increase the cleaning speed.
My Ryobi surface cleaner came ready to use right out of the box with no assembly. It took me less than 10 minutes to read the two-page instructions on use and maintenance before getting started. A nozzle cleaning tool (wire) came with the cleaner for clearing the orifices on the two rotating jets (nozzles).

This Ryobi surface cleaner came boxed. I hooked it up to my Ryobi power washer and started to clean my flagstone in my back yard patio. The connection to the cleaner is a very good connector like on a air hose. It locks in place because of the pressure needed to clean like it does.
In my pictures you can see where I washed and where I did not clean. It stands out very well.
This tool is worth the money. Can be used on most any surface. My garage floor will be next. then the cool deck around the pool. Requires around 3000 PSI. Will not work with 2000 PSI pressure washer.

A great addition to the pressure washer. I have used pressure washers for years and they are the best for cleaning outside objects. It would take literally hours to clean the driveway and sidewalk around the house and pool. This surface cleaner makes these tasks a snap and hours quicker than just using the spray head on a pressure washer. I have a 2700 psi Ryobi pressure washer and this unit attaches perfectly and cleans well. The wheels on the bottom make it easy to roll the unit back and forth across the concrete and eliminates any extra effort to move it. The surface cleaner just snaps on to the pressure washer wand with a quick connector so attaching it is easy to do. My driveway and sidewalks will certainly sparkle when I get done using this tool to get them all clean.
The RYOBI 16 in. 3700 PSI Surface Cleaner for Gas Pressure Washer is a welcome and useful attachment for any power washer. Made exclusively for cleaning floors, it is especially good for wooden decks. As anyone who has ever powerwashed a wooden deck knows, it takes great skill not to tear up the wood. This device makes it easy. The pressure is split between two angled nozzles, and they are constanly in motion, so you would really have to try to do damage. The constant motion also gives a nice even cleaning, unlike a nozzle which can leave stripes that are only apparent after drying. Works well on concrete also. The one thing it won't do is spot-clean paint drips, oil, etc - for that you need to resort to a nozzle. Also not so great in tight places like stairs. But overall does a great job, especially if you are dealing with wood. Get an extra-long wand for it and save your back.

The ryobi 16 inch surface cleaner for gas pressure washer is pretty good. I tried it on my driveway and my driveway was really dirty. It works great on exposed aggregate. This suface cleaner is good for breaking up the dirt then you can put a degree tip in it or maybe the garden hose and rinse it down. The surface cleaner is nice cause it has wheels. It will take some time to get a good pattern down.
