I bought because the reviews were good (and price) and I have to agree, it's surprisingly powerful. I cleaned up my siding, a brick wall, an old stain on my drive, rims on my van and blasted away old stain on my fence gate so I can re-stain it with a lighter color. The power cord is really long and the sprayer hose length is sufficient as well. I'd say it will handle most of your home projects.
It doesn't have a reservoir for cleaning detergents, you have to attach a small hose (included) and drop it in the bottle. It's nice because you don't have to worry about cleaning it out when switching detergents, but you also have to move it around with you. The 'all-in one' units with the wheels are nice because you can just pull it along with you, but then you also have to clean it out and it isn't as compact. You could probably use a little wagon or something if you wanted to tow it along with you, though. I guess it's personal preference when it comes to that, because this works just as good.

OMG, this power washer is amazing! I've been using power washers for 20 yrs. to clean my wood deck and flagstone porch and walkways. I've used many brands and all more powerful than this one, and this is hands down the best! My last one was 2050 PSI and this is only 1600 PSI and does the job better than the big boys. My flagstone gets black with mold over the winter, and this little Ryobi got them sparkling clean again! I'm in my 70s, and the bigger, more powerful machines were hard to haul around my property - even the ones with wheels. Not this little guy - it's light as a feather. If you want great results with little effort, BUY THIS WASHER! Sorry - didn't mean to scream, but that's how much I love this machine :))
Great 1600 psi power washer, that is perfect for power washing cars, lawn furniture, lawn mowers, four wheeler, house and travel trailers. Light weight, very easy to move around, easy to take up on roof of Recreational vehicles. It has a hose for putting in soap bottle and three jets for various angles. It is quiet, not very noisy. Very easy to start push the on and off button and pull the trigger in the wand. Just love this little unit!!

I was not sure this unit would suit my needs when purchasing, but after using it for 6 hours, I am amazed at the power this little handbag sized washer puts out. It is relatively quiet, compact, and the turbo nozzle really cuts the dirt quickly. I used it to wash the brick and siding on my home, windows, driveway, and sidewalks. It is easy to get it going and there is nothing else to buy unless you plan to use a cleaner. I had a hard time getting it started at first as it seemed to have low pressure and produced lots of air pockets. I had full pressure at the hose inlet, but finally realized that if you are not using the soap pickup tube and a gallon of cleaner, you need to cap off the soap pickup on the bottom of the unit as it pulls air into the system causing low or inconsistent pressure. I am including a photo of the soap injection nozzle where the cap needs to go and can be found at any auto parts store. There are a few one star reviews regarding low pressure and some may possibly be due to the ommission of the cap.

Gosh, after I washed my concrete and siding, it looked brand new. A neighbor saw me using the power washer, and he came over to try it himself and he told me that his machine was larger and that mine had more power. I highly recommend this product. It was worth every penny. And I'm one of those women that don't like machinery at all.

The product replaced an earlier electric pressure washer, so I had certain expectations for this model.
Pros: It works wonderfully, and I believe it presents good value.
Thoughtfully designed water hose and spray hose line connections
The 3 spray nozzles cover a host of applications
Cons: The spray nozzles are plastic and are too susceptible to damage
Recommendation: replace plastic nozzles with brass fittings

Another stellar review for this little pressure washer!!! Admittedly, this is my first pressure washer...but even after reading many great reviews, I was STILL amazed at the performance of this. It is as simple and portable as this gets. My better half cleaned up our neglected flagstone patio in an hour or so, and it turned out WAY better than I thought it would! We just bought the place last winter, and I'm not sure if this was ever done by the previous owner...but even if it was, it must have been a long time ago. The pictures speak for themselves! Durability and quality are to be seen...but the price and performance can't be beat as far as I can see.
Lightweight and portable with three nozzles: 15, soap, and turbo. It's about the size of a extra large shoe box, but don't be fooled by the size, it's full of power. I have a full size gas pressure washer (2800 psi) and the biggest difference for me is convenient of use for those quick on the spot jobs. This unit sits on the sleeve, with one hand can take it out and set it up in just a few minutes, and return it the storage just as fast. One great feature here also over the larger gas units is it's on demand, pull the trigger and the unit starts, release and it stops. No need to start and stop the unit as you move around, or take a break. The power is real good, I used the 12 inch power cleaner on the driveway concrete so we could stain it... just like any pressure washer you have to match your speed to the job at hand. Just one more fine tool from Ryobi Tools and I have a full line of them as well as their Gas pressure washer.

I bought this pressure last week. Over the weekend we used it on our old fence and deck with no soap! To be so little it is powerful and did the trick!!! Well worth $100.00 and it light weight and easy for my husband and I both to use.
