Pressure Washer Performance

I’ve been using the new Ryobi 3300 PSI Honda Pressure Washer for the last couple of months on several home maintenance projects. I’ve been using it to clean Lichen moss off siding, mildew and algae off decking and a concrete patio. Right out of the box the first thing I noticed was the nice compact size of this pressure washer and it’s relatively light weight. Also, the Honda motor is a big plus for me as I’ve been a huge fan of small Honda motors for years.

The Honda engine starts easily and runs very smooth. One thing that would be nice on this unit is a larger gas tank. The unit will run approximately 45 mins to 1 hr on a tank of gas. One a large project like these I found myself refueling more often than I wanted to stop and take a break.

The first and hardest task that the Ryobi 3300 PSI Honda Pressure Washer was used on was cleaning siding and removing stubborn lichen moss. Lichen is really difficult to remove from siding and the 3300 PSI pressure really did well removing it but not damaging the siding. A combination of the pressure and the 40 degree nozzle worked great.

Also, to help reach the higher siding I used a Ryobi 18 ft pressure washer extension. The extension is really helpful for washing siding and reducing the need for a ladder.

NOTE: It’s really important to follow the siding manufactures guidelines for pressure washing so you don’t damage the siding. Also, if you’re washing vinyl siding it’s important to limit washing up at an angle that causes lots of water to get behind the siding. In this particular situation this siding has a rain screen behind it and a well sealed building wrap which helps prevent water damage.

The next project was cleaning wood decking (Cambara hardwood) that hadn’t been cleaned in a couple years. As you can see above the decking had lots of mildew and algae on it. Pressure washing wood decking can be risky and extreme care must be used not to damage the wood. Here the pressure washer was set on the 40 degree nozzle and held about 8″ from the surface. It did a great job removing all the build-up on the surface without damaging the wood surface.

I also cleaned up some mildew on a stamped concrete patio around the pool. The pressure washer did a great job and didn’t damage the surface.

Overall Impression Ryobi 3300 PSI Honda Pressure Washer

The new Ryobi 3300 PSI Honda Pressure Washer really impressed me. With large 10″ wheels it easily rolls over rough terrain and it’s compact size makes it a breeze to store when not in use. Powered by a 187 cc Honda engine it produces plenty of pressure for any homeowner projects.

With a built-in soap dispenser and a 5-in-1 quick change nozzle this pressure washer is packed with all the features I homeowner would need. Priced at just under $400 it’s a great value especially with the Honda engine. If you’re looking for a compact powerful pressure washer this is one you should consider.
