1700 PSI Electric Pressure Washer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 726.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Power Washer I purchased this Ryobi washer after doing quit a bit of research on several machines in the price range and with the same features. I tried it out on cleaning some patio furniture and cleaning the back deck. It does a real good job of cleaning. Fairly quite, easy to handle, moves around well, and easy to assemble. Comes with a three year warranty which is the best in the product range. I wish there were more heads available so I could use it on the car and other items not listed in the section which head to use for the specific jobs. The hose to the power wand is a bit stiff at first anf this may soften up after several uses. Very good value for the money and a very good product overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice unit Bought this unit after reading generally satisfactory reviews. Price was reasonable and wanted to avoid the hassle of having to store gas and change oil. My use is washing my mobile home in Florida where mold is a big problem on exterior. Also needed to remove mold from concrete driveway. Turbo nozzle is great for that but it started to become erratic in pattern after a couple of hours use. Still functions but may have to replace it. Hopefully Home Depot will do that at no charge ? Like the design of the unit. Low profile and wider base than other units I've owned make less tippy and easier to move around. Have had good results with Ryobi products in the past. Would have given 5 stars if the turbo nozzle hadn't been a negative in durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for what we needed I bought this because Ive been needing to pressure wash my house since purchasing last summer. For some reason, the back yard retains more moisture causing mold/discoloration. Initially I was going to borrow one, but while at Home Depot, we checked these out and for the price, we figured we'd give it a go. Very happy with purchase. Easy to assemble and use. Took me a sec to figure out the nozzles, but for what we need it for, its the perfect size without making a huge investment. we also plan to use it to wash our vehicles and Im sure family members will be more than anxious to borrow it from us.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only had it for a year and it already leaks I bought this pressure washer last year. I barely use it. When I went to go use it this year, I got part way through a job and suddenly the sprayer wand started leaking. I tried to replace the small O ring in the wand, but that didn't fix the problem. It still leaks and will no longer build up any pressure. I am very disappointed in this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value. Purchased this unit about a month ago at Home Depot to replace a 10 year old Karcher (that was borrowed by family and never returned). Overall I think it's great, as I have done my deck (Trex) and my lawn furniture in prep for summer. It did a very good job and has sufficient power for this type of job and hopefully will perform well in cleaning my pontoon boat. I would have given it 5 Stars except the one feature my Karcher had that is sorely missing from the Ryobi is the soap dispenser; on the Karcher there was a separate button for applying soap and cleaner which was especially convenient for pre-soaking, but on the Ryobi you have to swap nozzle heads which is irritating. Not a deal breaker, but a feature I miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the price I've owned several electric pressure washers but this is my first Ryobi. I have a ton of Ryobi tools that I love so I bought this pressure washer based upon the quality of their other tools I own. I was not disappointed. Easy to set up. Easy to operate. Performs well. And easy to clean up and store. The motor is also much more quite than other electric pressure washers I've owned, which is an unexpected bonus. I've used it for 4 times with a total operating time of about 7 hours. It has performed well and met or exceeded all my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed I am a long-time Ryobi user, mainly the One+ tools. I've owned several "similar" Pressure Washers, each of which left me unimpressed. This Ryobi is head and shoulders above the others. All were advertised as approximately 1700 PSI, but did not give me the cleaning power of the Ryobi. This unit is also very well designed, and although I haven't used it yet, having a Detergent tank is a dramatic improvement over the bottles attached to the wand. The removable handle and the large wheels are also a big plus. I'll be using this for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High power for small machine I bought this pressure washer to spray the exterior of our home and also to clean my cars. It has plenty of kick, and the nozzles provided give you several choices depending on what you're using it on. The highest pressure nozzle works well and cleans up the stubborn dirt and grime. You'll still want to use a brush like you would at a car wash to get set-in dirt. It is quick and easy to set up and works great for home use. Not a commercial grade item but great if you want to wash your car at home or clean your mower, bikes, tools etc!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ergonomic and and designed with simplicity in mind I really like how easy it is to operate. It's lightweight but powerful. I was very impressed with the power nozzle. It removed stains that others couldn't . Another super great feature is how it shuts off when you release the trigger. I researched the product on line and got great ratings, however my son recommended this brand. He has almost all of Riobi 's power tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid lightweight pressure washer for a good price I bought this a few weeks ago to power wash a house that I was going to paint. I didn't want to spend a fortune and I didn't want something big with a gas powered motor on it, and the extra maintenance that brings. This thing was nice and cheap for what I got. It had the pressure I needed, it's small (the handle can be removed so you can break it down to easily fit in a small car's trunk), it is very powerful (just as powerful as the old gas unit I used to have) and rather than dealing with gas, you just need an extension cord. I did use a 3/4 inch hose, but then I was using a 100 foot hose so I wanted the extra size just in case. But I never had any problems with the water feed. Definitely worth the money I paid for it. Very pleased with its performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Pressure Washer! I bought my 1700psi pressure washer about a month ago. I had no experience with or knowledge of pressure washers and debated about the purchase. I passed it by several times before deciding, at the affordable cost, it was worth trying. I'm so glad I made that purchase. I cleaned my brick walkway, brick and cement patio and terrace area, and my brick retaining wall, most of which are over 30 years old. They look almost as they did when new! I cleaned it all with water only, no soap. I cleaned several parts of my projects in one day. It took me about 8 hours, and I had no problems with the performance of the machine. I have since used it on my nieces house, and she is very happy with the results. I look forward to many more cleaning projects in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size! I bought my Ryobi two weeks ago to replace a gas powered model that was just to big and cumbersome. First it is the perfect size to move around and it was more than up to the job. In the last two weeks I've cleaned two vinyl decks, a vinyl sided sided storage shed and our modest vinyl sided cottage. It did the job without a hitch. I finished by powerwashing my car in literally minutes just because it was there when I finished the cottage. The wheels have never looked better! I have rarely been so happy about a tool purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Powerful Have had the sprayer now for a month - no issues so far. Minimal assembly (with no aggravation or conflicting instructions!) and it was ready to go. Light weight is the nicest feature noted at first. I like the compact design - does not take up unnecessary room. The spray nozzles are easily attached and removed. No more "push and twist" like I had to do with the "yellow" machines (which never seemed to last more than a season or two. The motor is extremely quiet and I think the spiral head powering water onto the metal cowling of my compact tractor is louder than the motor on this!! Provided this lasts more than 2 seasons in Northern NY (yes, it is stored 4-5 months out of the year) I will be very happy - especially seeing how it has a 3 year warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little machine! I bought this a month ago and have used it three times already. On the driveway, the deck and the boat. It's perfect, powerful enough to do the driveway but not too powerful for the boat and even the canvas boat cover. It's lightweight, easy to transport and seems well made. Great unit at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works like a champ I bought this in 2015 and it is performing perfectly. Great features; on board storage for nozzles, hose wrap, wand holster, soap dispenser, etc,... I went ahead and purchased extra spray nozzles and this power washer really performs outstanding results. The unit does not move around and tip over like other washers, it has a firm heavy base, yet the dolly system allow it to be moved with ease. It is perfect for cleaning your house, cars, fences, anything really for residential use. Highly recommend. Great product. A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! I bought this two weeks ago and have had great results. I used it to pressure wash my house over the weekend and found it extremely easy to set up and use and very easy to move around with me. The pressure was enough to get these sticky bugs off my concrete block house and it washed all the dirt away on my driveway with ease. I can’t wait to use this again to use on my car with that nozzle. For a first time homeowner this easy to use pressure washer does an excellent job and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely Designed I am a big fan of Ryobi tools. I started with a drill. Now, I have a hedger, pole saw, edger, leaf blower, tire pump, and now a pressure washer. Very happy with all. I love the fact that I don't have to deal with gasoline in any of them. When I let go of the trigger on the pressure washer, the quiet motor shuts off, then handily comes back on when I pull the trigger again. It's a very smart machine. It knows which nozzle is on, and only dispenses soap with the low pressure nozzle. It's doing great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I recommend it for non professional users This was my first pressure washer and it has worked great. Cleans siding, fence, concrete and even my car. My turbo nozzle broke and Ryobi replaced it in 5 days.
Date published: 2017-03-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right! I put this to work right away on my wood deck that was in desperate need of some TLC. I have used a gas powered pressure washer with more power in the past so I was prepared for a little disappointment. I was very impressed with this electric washer and got more than I expected. I love how quiet it is compared to the gas washer and I think the power is very close to the more expensive gas washer I had. I am so pleased to have decided to go with Ryobi, again. Ryobi has yet to let me down!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient I have had very good experience with this brand. I was attracted to this model in part because it is NOT top heavy and will not fall over as other pressure washers sometimes do. I bought an electric model because I use it infrequently, and do not wish to maintain another gas engine. I was a little concerned that the PSI was not as high as some models, however I've found that this model has all the power I could wish for. With the appropriate tip, it removes paint! Great for painting prep!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product! Wife and kids got this for me for Christmas and I am so pleased they did. Have already had a need and opportunity to use the machine. This is a good all around cleaning product. Because of the pressure and flow you cannot expect to cover large areas quickly like one might do with a 3000psi+ machine but the Ryobi 1700 psi machine will do the job you need with the correct nozzle. The nozzle selections provided with the Ryobi 1700 psi machine provide a good range of cleaning choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from recommended electric pressure washer I bought this for general around-the-house use.... so far I have cleaned the gutters and windows, pressure washed the driveway, washed by utility trailer and both cars.... I have previously used gas powered washers, and the only shortcoming on this electric model is that it doesn't have enough pressure at more than a few feet for heavy duty cleaning- I wash my cars in less than half the time using a hose----- for an inexpensive general use washer you can't beat it for the price!!!

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 4 out of 5 by from Did the job it promised and MORE! This power washer was a god send for my dirty front porch...I felt like it completely altered the appearance of my home after one wash! What a great purchase!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Solid performance in a compact unit. I bought it a couple months ago to prep my patio for sealer. I worked great and I have found a dozen more jobs around the house for it. I should have bought it years ago. The soap nozzle is a little weak but most tasks have been better without the soap and just using the higher pressure nozzles. The turbo nozzle is great. Before and after pictures are amazing with the difference. I am am happy with the price and the performance to date. Using it weekly at this time. No issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of improvements since my last one. Had to replace a washer (Karcher) that had been through the wringer and finally gave up the ghost. Love the hose storage, low profile, little extra pressure and self storing tips. Also like that I can use my old wands if I need to. The only thing that seemed a little strange is that you hooked the water hose into the front and the high pressure hose came out of the back. Ended up dragging it backwards. I own several dozen other Ryobi tools and they've all been good to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Wanted! I had owned a competitor's product for a few years and was looking for replacement: I did some research on the Web. This Ryobi received glowing reviews and this did the trick for me. I have been using it to clean decks, do a soft wash of cars, and so far, all tasks have been done right. This Washer is easy to set up, it comes along nicely, doesn't tip over nor get messy and tangled up, problems I had encountered with the previous one. To sum it up, I'm glad I bought MY Ryobi!
