The Ryobi Pressure washer has a Ryobi 212 cc engine, boasting 3200 PSI, and weighs 74 pounds. The machine comes with wheels for safe and easy transport. The end of the wand for the device boasts a rotary nozzle with 5 different settings, and the machine has an onboard .95-gallon detergent tank. The Ryobi pressure washer just slightly beats out the DeWalt by .1 GPM.
The DeWalt pressure washer is lighter than its Ryobi counterpart, weighing in at 64 pounds, and has slightly more powerful 3300 PSI using a DeWalt 208 cc engine. This model of pressure washer, however, has a much more compact form factor, at just 21.5 inches high, compared to Ryobi’s, which stands at 35 inches high, making transport more of a hassle for the Ryobi model. In addition, the DeWalt OEM pump features a maintenance-free crankcase, removing the need for oil changes.
Unlike the Ryobi pressure washer, DeWalt boasts 5 quick-connect nozzles, meaning there are four components not attached to the machine that could get lost. In addition, the DeWalt pressure washer lacks an onboard soap tank, something that’s included in the Ryobi model. Both pressure washers come with 25-foot hoses and a wand included.
