Wouldnt take the skin off custard
Very disappointed in this product.
For something that is 2000psi it didnt even take kids chalk off bricks.
Took it back to Bunnings for a refund.
Dont recommend it at all. You get what you pay for with this product.

The continual working pressure & flow it provides is as described on the box.
This review is about the Ryobi RPW140-G pressure washer, I did loads of research before buying it, I've listed some of my resources below too.
Basically my first pressure washer was the JET-USA RX525 which I wound up replacing after just 3 weeks because it was garbage. You might look at my review on it as being part one of a saga in which all went bad and this now is the final part of the tale where all comes good in the end. I'll save you some time if you want though and give you the end summary now, as long as your need is satisfied...by a 2000psi pressure washer this is great, it'll go all day, the basic hose in the box isn't prone to kinking or crimping and the trigger won't make your finger hurt from squeezing it because the trigger is actually squeezed by your whole hand. Yes, it is uncomfortable to hold for long periods but because it's a quality unit one can upgrade the fittings, the hose connection into the washer is an M22 fitting thus hose and accessories can be changed. The warranty is pretty indicative of the quality, great warranties aren't put on garbage, this warranty is great, it's a 4 years replacement warranty. If you're interested in avoiding expensive trouble I'll give you the lessons of my expensive pressure washer education for free and hopefully it'll save you some regret later. The best lessons are the ones hardest learnt. The JET-USA RX525 used as my cheap & nasty example is made in China, I actually corresponded with some pressure washer experts in the USA and they've never heard of JetUSA, but there's also loads of other pressure washing companies that use washers made in China that likewise, are available there and not here, all have the same issues. I fell for misleading advertising, spending money on WRONG and then having to spend more money on making it RIGHT! I knew that quality tools if looked after lasted a lifetime. I also believed my budget didn't extend to lifetime quality, I thought buying cheap would only be reflected by less life expectancy for the washer. This point is crucial to the saga, I also bought cheap with the intention of improving the package over time.
Best $89 spent
Purchased for cleaning walls and floors around the house we are renovating. I've never used any other domestic pressure cleaners, only industrial ones. However I am impressed with the performance of this unit. It has saved me countless hours, I have given it a good work out over the last few months, at times running it non stop for an hour or more! Comes with a 4 year replacement warranty, so figured can't go wrong for $89 at bunnings, but it has impressed me. Works great with truck wash for washing the cars too. If more pressure is required I would expect to pay more than $89... I would happily recommend to anyone.
Not Much Pressure for 2000 psi
Bought this unit from Bunnings to clean pool pavers, driveway etc.Yes it will clean but "fan" set very narrow, when you open "fan" to expand "cleaning area" pressure just drops and it takes forever to do various jobs. Very average performer.
Does not do what is expected
Bought this to clean old flaking paint off a deck and clean moss off my cement pathway.Fails dismally in both respects.Frankly disappointed with it.Had a cheap pressure washer years back that worked better.
Purchased in July 2019 for $199.00.
Worked great, for 5 minutes.
I upgraded to this Ryobi unit as my Homelite packed it in after 3 months. I was excited by the look of this unit and the 2000 psi it produced. I put it together and got into cleaning my car which was going well. After literally half the car (5 minutes) I pulled the trigger and nothing.. I unplugged it let it sit for 15 minutes, plugged back in still nothing. Tried again but waited 30 minutes still nothing! The unit just wouldn't turn on at all. I tired not using the extension lead and tried different power points but to no avail.
Took it back to Bunnings for an exchange to a different brand.
Great machine for cheaper price
I just bought Ryobi 140SC yesterday from Bunnings $129, what a bargain. I am not sure what is the difference between 140G and 140SC, they have same rating and look, but this one comes with few extra kits compared to 140G model so it sounds a better choice. I wanted to see how it works, so washed my car. It is really great at work except I found 5m hose is short and I had to walk the machine around. Pressure is pretty good and adjustable at the nozzle. I didn't have a foam nozzle at the time so couldn't try but the soap tank works fine for soapy...water spray. Just have to set it on low pressure setting at nozzle for soapy water. So far for first use it turned pretty good. I think the manual should have little more information how to operate the machine, like starting, maintenance and extra kits. A bit of lazy work in that area.
Did the job
Cleaned 10 years plus of dirt from driveway. It was black before it's looking pretty white & clean now! Light weight, easy to move around with the wheels, more powerful than i thought. Yes I recommend this product & yes if it cleaned my driveway it could clean almost anything!! Haven't used the patio cleaner yet will update review later! The second photo shows the dark areas on left & right side of driveway is sandstone that i have not yet cleaned!!!

Good economical high water pressure cleaner
This high pressure cleaner is quite good. From the box, the user manual has clear and simple pictures to help you set-up the waster. It is compact, has all the hooks and compartments for you to hang your power cord or wand hose.
Performance is adequate. It only has one nozzle, although the nozzle tip can be adjusted (like a hose) to either be a strong single jet stream, or fan out to be a wider 'chisel'. There is also a second ring on the hose nozzle that controls the strength of the water 'blast'.
So overall, I would say it's not as good as the 'industrial-grade' washers, but for $120 from Bunnings, it's a bargain.
