What happened? No power? Try bypassing the GFCI plug (if it had one). That's what happened to my Ryobi.
When I used it a few weeks ago the pump was making some terrible noises. I think since it was the first time I used the hose it was getting inconsistent water flow. When I tried to use it again to wash the car for C&C it wouldn't even turn on. The GFCI was lit green. When it met the concrete with maximum force to test the integrity of the plastic case, it failed and I tossed it.

That's not the holy grail.
The holy grail is $49.99 :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Do I just buy this?

damn that's CHEAP! I got the older version of that for like $80 when it was the last one in stock at Home Depot during a sale on the old models. Jump on that bad boy. And when it fails, it's most likely the stupid GFCI plug. Mine was green too even though it wouldn't turn on.

My neighbor made the adjustment at the plug end.

You made the right decision. The 2k psi unit has the same pump as the "holy grail"
The manufacturer just changes the orifice size to try and hit the advertised PSI
When washing cars, 1000 is the ideal pressure. The gpm is more important but on budget machines take what you can get.

Does anyone have experience with that Ryobi pressure washer vs the harbor freight Portland pressure washer? Worth buying the Ryobi if I already have to Portland w/ aftermarket gun attachment?

Not many driveway enthusiasts are going to spend 500-1000 on a PW.
Kranzle
AR Blue
Comet

In that order for those who want to know.
Obsessed garage has an entire spreadsheet with anything and everything a person needs to know.
My AR has been solid for 2 years. I got it on the recommendation from 1MEANGT 1MEANGT and he's had his for several years. Yeah I paid more, but it's cheaper to pay more once than to pay less twice or more.

So I see Ryobi is a thing.



Is it just that one, or is the 18V battery powered version also touched by the hands that also created the LS1?

Ordered. It's cheaper than the garbage HF one I had that I couldn't use my foam cannon with since the gun didn't have a quick disconnect. I'm looking forward to this one. Cost $60 OTD.
My HF one came with the foam cannon and it's fucking awesome. It's so foamy. But I will say this will be year 3 with it and it's on it's last leg.

The foam cannon it came with wasn't bad. It just sucks that you have to turn it 90 degrees to release it and put the standard tip back on. The quick disconnect is easier. Also I bought a foam cannon Mook Mook recommended me and I haven't been able to use it so I'm excite to finally give that a try. I'm planning a full paint correct on the vette soon I'll go into all the details in a new thread.
