Very nice! Which nozzle did you use? Did you find that the sand joints were being cut away too?

I cleaned my pavers using the turbo nozzle and it cut away some of the sand joints :(. Perhaps just my inexperience?
I used turbo nozzle and my first time cleaning my patio paver stones. What do you mean by sand joints? Like in between each stone? I was using it to clear up all the small annoying little weeds.

Yes that's right. The sand between my pavers were getting washed away from the turbo nozzle.

These were installed last summer not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Well it's unavoidable to get the sand blasted out unless you keep the nozzle away from those areas but then you won't get the edges of your stone clean like the rest. I guess after you are done cleaning you could get a bag of sand and sweep it around to fill in all the gaps.

Has anybody used the Ryobi 1800 yet? I just want to clean the concrete around my inground pool. I don't really want to buy a big gas pressure washer for such a little task, and if I am going to buy a gas one, I'm going to buy a triplex pump one that will last forever, so it's like $98 vs $900.

I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised with this unit (picked it up this weekend - before HD ran out of stock). To replace my ancient Karcher (15+ yrs old) - replacement parts would have cost nearly as much as the new Ryobi unit.
Easy to operate - although no wheels just carry it to the location and there is plenty of hose for the wand and a lengthy extension cord for the power.
The unit comes with three different nozzles: 1) Turbo, 2) 15%, 3) Soap
1)The turbo was more than powerful to remove stain off the deck and clean the driveway.
2) 15% is perfect for washing windows and cars
3) Soap nozzle with a plug in tube for container - where you can use liquid soap of your choice = certainly not a soap cannon - however it works.

To an earlier suggestion of getting some quick connect valves = certainly a good idea.
However I would have a hard time justifying the $40 suggested retail price of the suggested pieces for a piece of equipment of $100. That being said there are probably some less expensive alternatives.
Long and short of it:
I have only used it for a couple of hours so far and am quite satisfied.

The Bosch one does not take standard pressure washer fittings.

I bought the Bosch and Ryobi, I will be returning the Bosch.

2) have to tried washing car? using the foam bottle? how is it, thx
i only got it to power wash my car
Yes the one I got has no wheels. It comes with:
1 turbo nozzle
40 degree nozzle
Soap nozzle

I bought an extra Kobalt 15 degree nozzle ($10.99)

Unfortunately I have not used it yet so cannot give you an idea of how well the soap works for washing cars.

When i was in homedepot and Lowes and compared them side by side (without opening he boxes) noticed the Ryobi has 3yrs warranty. But the kobalt only 1 year. They had lots of boxes of both types on the shelves so no reason to believe they will run out. Im still debating which to buy.
The cover is all plastic which I suspect all pressure washers at this price range would be. The gun is plastic as well.

It is really small. Approximately 8”x10.5x 13.5.

I did notice the warranty difference but honestly at $79 for the Kobalt I’ll take my chances.

In all honesty I think these units are exactly the same machine.The Ryobi has a built in GFCI on the electrical cord which is a nice feature.

I’ve attached a couple pictures. The Ryobi looks a bit smaller but the handle is separate and needs to be installed.

I believe the 40 would be better for washing cars because it’s less aggressive. 15 May damage parts of the vehicle.

Picked up the Kobalt unit from Rona today. The advertised prices is the same as Lowes at $89. Rona also has a $10 off coupon for subscribing to their newsletter online. The cashier took the $10 off the total after taxes though when I went to pay in store.
Also, on the Rona website, the description says the unit comes with a 3 year limited warranty, but on the Kobalt box, it says it's only a one year warranty.
