Ryobi RY18PCA-0 ONE+ Patio Cleaner with Wire Brush Review


Rating: 4.3 out of 5 (from 1,382 reviews)

The Ryobi RY18PCA-0 18V ONE+ Patio Cleaner is designed to expedite the removal of moss and weeds from outdoor surfaces. Its high-speed wire brush targets and clears debris lodged between the gaps and joints of patios, ensuring a thorough cleaning process. With user comfort in mind, this cleaner features a telescopic shaft and an adjustable auxiliary handle, accommodating individuals of varying heights and minimising discomfort during operation. A built-in guard shields users from potential flying debris, enhancing safety during use.

Additionally, it is part of the Ryobi One+ system, which features over 100 tools that are all powered by a single battery.

What users think:

The Ryobi RY18PCA-0 18V ONE+ Patio Cleaner has received both praise and criticism from users, offering a nuanced perspective on its performance.

Users lauded the cleaner's commendable power and cable-free operation, highlighting its seamless integration with other Ryobi One tools as a significant advantage. The choice of nylon brushes as a gentler alternative to the wire brushes resonated positively among users concerned about potential damage to brick surfaces. In practice, the cleaner's ability to effectively clear debris from intricate gaps and joints was widely appreciated, with many users attesting to its impressive results.

However, user experiences revealed notable drawbacks, particularly concerning the durability and cost-effectiveness of the nylon brushes. Despite their initial appeal for delicate surfaces, users found that the nylon brushes wore down quickly, necessitating frequent replacements. This aspect proved to be a significant concern, especially for users contending with larger surface areas such as driveways or expansive patios. Additionally, the cleaner's reliance on a single wire wheel was identified as a limiting factor in terms of speed, prompting speculation about potential enhancements with the incorporation of multiple wheels for improved efficiency.

Direct quotes from owners:

Good power and does the job with no cable to worry about. Perfect addition to my other Ryobi One tools.


Only used the nylon brushes as didn't want to scratch the bricks by using the wire brushes, as mentioned in some reviews. It cleaned the gaps very very well, can't fault it for that. However the nylon brushes wear down so quickly that I would have needed 4 or 5 of them to do the whole drive which would have cost more than the actual tool, and they're not cheap Brilliant for small areas but the nylon brushes are not economical for use on big patios/drives.


Does as it says unfortunately it's slow with only one wire wheel, can't help thinking if it had 2 or 3 wheels it would be a lot quicker.

Price: £120
