Jodi Marks: Well, as you can see, there are a lot of options when it comes to pressure washers; but take a look at this one right here. This one is by Ryobi, and I like a lot of things about this, actually.
Look at the power that you get with this particular one. So if you’ve got a lot of cleaning to do, 3,100 PSI will tackle those projects. It also has a Honda engine.
But I think what I like best is this right here. Look on the end of the wand here. You know, usually on a typical pressure washer, you have to stop the pressure washer and change out the nozzles here—the different options for the different powers. With this one all you got to do is turn it to get the degree of the pattern that you want. So it’s all right there at your fingertips.
Another thing that this offers is that when you release the handle, it automatically powers down to 90 PSI. And what that does is, it actually does a couple of things. It saves energy, so it makes it more energy efficient. But it also allows you to turn that nozzle to get a different spray pattern without having all of that force. And then of course, it’s ready to go when you’re ready to pull that trigger again.
