Not worth buying.


In summary when it worked it worked well..it however has long periods of low pressure..not sure why...cheap quality hose with a split developed within spool end. Extremely poor quality and build..winding handle continually falling off, and mounts for power cord a waste of time.

Purchased in April 2018 at Bunnings Warehouse for $359.00.

Bought from Bunnings. Worked well for about 2hrs, then lost all pressure, same as other owner listed. There appears to be some inherent problem. I can't see this machine listed in Bunnings anymore, which may be indicative of an issue? Am getting a replacement but not confident of long term reliability.

Ryobi RPW170-G Same fault twice

Started great, BUT replaced within 2 months


Bought it following advice from local Bunnings, as it has 4 year "replacement" warranty, heaps of power and very competitive $299 vs other well known brands at more more money.

1. Within first few uses, the O-ring in the 'gun' split, no drama go to Bunnings and buy part and sorted
2. It's bit top heavy, fell over and handle for hose reel snaps, let's say that's my fault so I fix that
3. This weekend the wheel comes off, no idea how to fix it (suspect weight of machine which is substantial is too much for tiny screw to hold).

Hats off to Bunnings who replaced it, though my local one didn't stock anymore had to go to another location.

Is it possible to adapt a brush cleaner on a Ryobi 2400W 2500 PSI and what will be the cost? Thank you

I bought a 2500 psi Ryobi pressure cleaner and not sure how to make the soap come out

No answers

I have used Ryobi tools and equipment before and never had strange issues like this before.
My RPW-170G 2500PSI unit is only 4 weeks old and the machine is leaking oil from the bottom of the machine. I wouldn't have thought this machine would leak oil as it is not an old machine. I am not happy this is leaving oil on my clean concrete floor where it has been sitting overnight.
What is wrong with it?
