Ryobi Whisper Series Pressure Washer Provides Mid-Level Cleaning Power On 40V Platform
Finding the right pressure washer can be tricky for homeowners since there are so many factors that affect performance, like PSI and GPM levels. If your outdoor cleaning needs lie somewhere around the mid-duty level, Ryobi has several solutions in its arsenal. The Ryobi 40V Pressure Washer is part of the brand’s whisper series, which aims to deliver lower noise output. We wanted to take a look at what else this battery-powered solution has to offer homeowners.
Ryobi 40V Whisper Series 2000 PSI Pressure Washer Performance
- Model: Ryobi RY40306BTLVNM
- Power source: 40V batteries
- 81% quieter than gas pressure washers
- Three PSI settings
- Up to 2000 PSI
- Up to 1.2 GPM
- Siphon hose to utilize any fresh water source
Nowadays, it’s common for pressure washers to use corded electric power as opposed to gas, especially outside of professional-grade models. This Ryobi model changes things up by getting its power from two 40V batteries. Also, being part of the brand’s Whisper Series, you can expect a noise output up to 81% quieter than gas pressure washers.
It has three PSI settings which allow you to change between 1000 PSI, 1500 PSI, and 2000 PSI. Using Boost mode will net you that 2000 PSI and 1.2 GPM maximum, but it’s worth noting that using those higher power settings will affect your overall runtime.
