1700 PSI Electric Pressure Washer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 144.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ryobi 1700 PSI Electric Pressure Washer I was initially thrilled with the product after 1st use. Second use, it would short power up but short circuit and stop. After taking it a good distance to the only authorized repair shop, they kept it a month then informed me they couldn't fix it and I needed to take it back to the store. Two more visits to the store and I finally have a replacement that is working great. Not a fan of the authorized repair services locations. Love the machine and happy to have a working one again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Get the latest version I got my Ryobi pressure washer in Sept from Home Depot but it was made early in 2016. The first time I used it water shot out of the hose to machine connection. My connection is gray plastic but the retail center has the same unit they use that has a metal connection. My is now waiting for the metal part to replace my metal one. Otherwise I am am happy with it. 1700 PSI is not too much that you get in trouble on say an old wood deck but seems fine for home jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I just purchased this item a few weeks ago and have only used it once, but it is fantastic! I cleaned my house, bricks in front of my rock garden, my front walkway and driveway in less than 2 hrs. It really does the job and is very lightweight and easy to maneuver. I only wish I was told beforehand about the pump solution to use after each power wash to flush out the tubing. I purchased it afterwards, but make sure you purchase it when buying the power wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding for the price We bought this unit refurbished and found it to be like new. It nicely cleaned a 20'x20' concrete patio of mildew and dirt build up and a painted concrete block fence of algae and dirt. Considering the size and frequency of jobs around our home, it is ideal. We have no need for a more powerful, more expensive washer. Other good points: - easy to assemble - easy to move around - sufficiently long hose - convenient on-board storage of hose, wand & storage

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good power Works very well. Cleaned back porch and screened patio and driveway of my rental after purchasing a house. My landlord was so impressed that he gave me every nickel of my $1000 deposit back, as well as the $250 nonrefundable pet deposit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to set up I got my washer a few weeks ago used it to clean my pool cage and lani, than did my house and driveway, this little machine does it fast so much easier than lugging around a gas power one. I like how it has three different spray jets that are easy to change out quickly. I got the Ryobi because of the high marks it got in the Family Handyman magazine. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, it's top notch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product, bad parts service I bought this item from Home Depot and when I opened the box found two axles that were too short, one that was the right size. Called and they send a new axle, but the part was again too short. Called again discussed the problem with customer service, and got another axle that was way too long. Went to Lowe's, bought a clevis pin and used it as I wanted to use my product that weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine for the homeowner This machine is perfect for me as a homeowner. It has enough power to take care of the needs around my home. I have a 4 bedroom home with a detached garage, both with vinyl siding. Anyone who has a similar home knows how moss can grew on it from time to time. This pressure washer does a wonderful job with hthis as well as concrete cleaning, etc. Money well spent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pressure washer. I've cleaned a camper, a driveway, 225 sq t deck, 12' X 30' concrete walkway with stairs and retaining wall and a 5' X 8' canvas canopy so far. Not had an issue yet. Easy hook up, quiet running and great value for the money. This unit has already paid for itself. It's 1700 psi, use the proper cleaner and it will operate just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I bought this with a high recommendation from an employee at Home Depot. I do not have any experience with a power washer. I compared gas and electric and chose the electric model. It is a power horse. I washed my 12 year old deck and am very surprised at how nice it looks. We are now ready to paint and it will look as nice as the first day I built it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very well-made tool Sturdy little beast that can be put on unever surfaces with no problem. Very con venient to use and does the job it's designed for--cleaning. It will take paint off if you're not careful! The Turbo nozzle does a great job of cleaning a large area. Add a nozzle swivel to angle the direction of the nozzle and you can clean things from any standpoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Power Washer Very happy with my new Ryobi 1700 psi electric washer. No fumes, no oil, no gas, no problems. Just clean water power. Blew out gutters. Cleaned all pollen off deck and screened in porch and outdoor furniture as well as vinyl siding. So easy to use and so effective. Why hire professionals when you can do it cheaper yourself. It pays you to do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little pressure washer I had my eye on this one for awhile. I was actually considering either the 1700 or the 2000 psi. The 1700 was my choice. It is powerful enough for me to clean my driveway, patio, and walks yet suttle enough ( with the variety of tips) for me to clean a vehicle, garden equipment, Windows, or the house. Nice little tool. Thx Ryobi engineers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what I need! I had brand X previously, so I can compare. I like the cord and hose storage. It is also easy to attach the garden hose. Has enough power for any job, never slows. After using it, I like that it is easy to drain water out of pump area, just by tilting the unit forward. I believe, not draining my old unit is what killed it. Thanks Ryobi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job & makes it easy I bought this a few years ago to clean the pollen & algae off of my porch, siding, walkways & deck. It works great! There are different attachments that snap on easily, depending on what surface you are cleaning. After trying another all-plastic model from a friend, I found the Ryobi pressure washer easy to move & it won't tip over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 Years and counting I bought this over three years ago and just stored it for the third winter. This is a great pressure washer and has given me zero problems. I have used it with an 18" extension as well as the RYOBI surface cleaner attachment with no issues . This is indeed an impressive little machine and perfect for general home use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and plenty of power I bought this pressure washer to replace an old Karcher and what a difference. The Ryobi is lightweight, easy to maneuver and delivers plenty of power. Easy and quick to assemble out of the box. Some nice features brass hose connector, cord storage, high pressure hose that disconnects from the both the unit and wand, wand holder, hose strap for storage, quick connect spray nozzles and built in soap dispenser (unlike the old Karcher which used a siphon tube) . I am cleaning the top level of a two story deck and have used the unit twice for about 6 hours and the results are great. Cleans the wood, removes mold, algae and stains without pulverizing the fibers. Get to close though and it is powerful enough to pull up wood fibers. I prefer electric washers because they are easy to handle, have a small footprint for storage and best of all no gas engine to deal with. I'll probably use the Ryobi on even more projects since it's so much easier to handle than the old Karcher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a small business & personal. I bought this and it was so simple to put together. I have bought more of their product, because I'm so satisfied. I had a problem and Home Depot took it right back and gave me a new one, no questions. I bought the 9 foot poll chainsaw extension, electoral. Also, the 5 1/2 inch drill and power drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the third power washer I've purchased over the past few years. And, I found this Ryobi machine to be highly reliable and user friendly. I cleaned my entire concrete areas and removed all mildew from my house in 2 days; 1/3 of the time my other machines took and I ame 73 years old. Great machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and mighty! I have used my Ryobi pressure washer (1700 psi) so far to clean fences, bricks and cement on different 3 days in one week. So, even though I haven't had it for a long time, I am positively impressed with it's performance. It did a good job on all surfaces used. I would say that it is a Keeper!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets and exceeded my expectations I needed to clean up my deck and what I got looked almost like the deck was only a year or so old. I used it next on some deck furniture and it took very little time to clean chairs and tables so they looked almost new. Most recently I tackled my driveway and sidewalks and it did a great job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have had the unit about 1 year now, and have used in personally and also for customers I perform handyman work for. It does the job ! You don't need those 3000 psi power washers, as too much power can damage siding, concrete and such. The 1700 PSI on this model is just the right power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use I had a gas powered washer that was great when new . Not so easy to start after first year and hard to lug around .RYOBI electric is much easier to use and quick change tips are a plus.I would recommend this for it's ease of operation and more than enough Great or us older folks !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Features I bought the Ryobi 1700 PSI electric pressure washer two months ago and find it does almost everything I require. I cannot safely wash my metal without an extension and apparently you do not make one for that model.Other then that I am happy with the performance of the unit.
Date published: 2016-12-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I buy Ryobi due to trust and this washer didn't disappoint me. Although the gas operated washers provide more pressure this one provided enough for my jobs and my pocketbook. Having used it now for a few months I am very happy with my purchase (see star rating above)!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pressure washer for the price The unit is easy to move around, the hose un/coils nicely, great pressure for cleaning decks. The only hiccup was starting up it takes a little while to build up pressure but that could be attributed to the inconsistent feed from the hose. Very happy with the purchase
Date published: 2016-09-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value I bought this about 2 years ago. I've so far used to to wash a wood deck, cement slabs, and motor vehicles. After about a year, the AC adapter went bad. Ryobi warranty covered a replacement. Overall happy with my purchase and use it a lot more than I thought I would.
