I know nothing about power washers.

1. Does this come with a sufficient amount of nozzles and features like being able to add soap?

2. Could I clean my pavers with it without damaging them, or use it to remove sand between pavers if I want to change the sand?

3. Is there usually a better pressure washer that goes on sale that I should be waiting for instead?

I have the previous model of this one, I think it was 1600psi instead? Been super happy with it and it's gotten a fair bit of use.

My tip: most people's pressure washers go when they leave them outside over the winter, don't winterize them, and water residual inside them freezes up and cracks things inside. This one is so small that we bring it inside over the winter and tuck it away in a closet and it takes up literally no space at all.

Full disclosure: I know nothing either.

1. I believe 99% of the time you'll use the Turbo nozzle. Ryobi looks like it comes with a hose for soap, but not a foam cannon if that's what you're looking for.
2. I don't believe 1800psi @ 1.2gpm is enough to really clean pavers/concrete. Definitely shouldn't damage them.
3. probably, but depends on your budget and what you're looking for. Under $100? This is probably your best bet.

I've used 1400-1600 psi before and pavers and our concrete hot tub pad have come up good as new (I have the older model of this exact Ryobi)

I can't answer this question but I would advise everyone new to pressure washers to Google and read an article about PSI (pressure) and GPM (flow rate) for a quick understanding of how these 2 specs affect performance. PSI seems to be advertised most, but GPM is equally important, if not more.

One example

how long did it take you? I'm sure it'll work just take 3x as long - I guess it also depends how large a space you're cleaning. A hot tub pad is a relatively small area.

Everything I've read said 3k psi and 4gpm is the sweet spot for concrete, assuming you're doing a large area like a driveway. Again, I'm no expert nor experienced it. YMMV, I guess.

I picked this one up, ends up being $20 cheaper (~20%) after the $10 off email.
The $10 off email doesn't work with this deal. So only $10 cheaper.
***edit*** So sorry, I'm wrong, it does work! So it is $20 cheaper.

I have an 1800 PSI Karcher and from my experience it's fine to use for washing a car and cleaning a deck, but it struggles with stain and paint removal from a deck. At $98 I think this is a great deal, but manage your expectations.

Thanks OP, was just telling my dad I wanted a pressure washer so this is a great entry-level unit for me.

To me it is. Basically the same specs. Only difference is warranty but who cares at this price. I bet trying to get service is a nightmare.
With the welcome email $10 code it is $20 cheaper than the HD ryobi unit.
Comes to $89.27 all in for me. I'm getting the Kobalt.

That's what I figured too. The kobalt also seems to come with a foam cannon.

Purchased it with the 10$ off welcome code.

There's only 1 Kobalt, the second Kobalt you're referring to may be the old model that I don't think is sold any longer.

I went with the Kobalt, it's cheaper, has a (probably crappy) foam cannon, and likely performs similarly to the Ryobi.

I had already ordered the ryobi one when it was 148 for online order but it hasn't shipped yet (expecting a baby any day so didn't want to do pickup). I don't see any chat option or anything else to get a price adjustment. am I blind? can I somehow get the deal without too much hassle?

Try calling?

Otherwise, if you can't cancel it just buy at $98 and return the full priced one when it arrives.

Just bought the Sun Joe spx3000 this week at $198 but it's still unopened. Mainly going to use it for car washes.

Any thoughts from people who have used them on whether I should return for this smaller less power ryobi?

I've already purchased a longer pressure washer hose, quick connect adapters, and foam cannon as well.
