What are the main features of the Ryobi RPW110B pressure washer?

This washer is small and compact and comes with a choice of two nozzles, a variable fan spray and a pencil jet. There’s also a foam sprayer bottle that attaches to the lance and other accessories are available at extra cost including a wash brush and patio cleaner. It has a reasonable 5m length of hose and there’s onboard storage on the body of the machine for keeping the cable tidy and for stashing the extra nozzle and detergent bottle. It has a 1500w engine, a water flow rate of 360 litres per hour and delivers 110 Bar of pressure.

What’s the Ryobi RPW110B pressure washer like to use?

The Ryobi pressure washer needs only a small amount of simple assembly before use. There are no wheels to attach, just the handle and storage racks and the hose itself. It's a compact machine and although it has no wheels, it’s light enough to lift and move easily around the garden. This does affect the stability of the washer and it will fall over if pulled but as it’s easy to move its simple enough to carry the washer to exactly where you need it rather than stretching the hose and the machine toppling over. The choice of sprays is good and given the size of this machine it cleans well and reasonably quickly; the pulsating fan spray is particularly effective. It’s comparatively quiet and easy to use. However, it lacks a safety button on the trigger handle and has no ‘stay’ button, it’s either on or off, which can get tiring if cleaning over a long period of time.

What situations is the Ryobi RPW110B pressure washer most suitable for?

Ideal for the light cleaning of furniture and fences as well as bikes and cars, this little machine also shifted moss and grime off our fragile brick paving so it’s useful for gentler cleaning such as on decking and in greenhouses.

Is the Ryobi RPW110B pressure washer good value for money?

This simple washer is well priced for the performance it delivers, and it comes with a three year warranty (when registered online within 30 days of purchase), the highest in our test. We think it’s excellent value for money.
