The Ryobi RYi2022 has a 79cc OHV 4-stroke engine that runs on gasoline, puts out 120V, and has a running power of 1,650W and a peak power of 2,050W. Also, since it can work in parallel (but doesn’t come with a parallel kit), its power can be doubled by connecting it to a second unit that works with it. The noise level of the inverter generator is 57 dBA, which is less than a refrigerator. Ryobi’s EasyStart pull-start system is used to start the generator (more information below ). With its 1.2-gallon fuel tank, the RYi2022 can run for about 7.8 hours at 0.5 load on a full tank (fuel consumption is approximately 0.15 GPH). The RYi2022 makes a clean sine wave. With a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 3%, you can safely plug sensitive electronics into its AC outlets.
The control panel has the following two AC outlets: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R).
If the generator is too busy, a light will let you know.When it comes to safety, this product has an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), so you can use it without worry.It also has Ryobi’s CO DETECT technology, which keeps track of the amount of carbon monoxide in the air while the generator is running.If the generator isn’t set up right and carbon monoxide levels get too high, the generator will turn off by itself.It’s a nice extra safety measure, but don’t forget to take your generator outside at all times.The Ryobi RYi2022 comes with basic instructions and an owner’s manual to help you start the generator quickly.It also comes with a funnel and oil, among other things.
The Ryobi RYi2022 is an inverter generator with a case that is 22 inches long, 12.5 inches wide, and 19 inches high.So, it looks better than most other products with open frames.The design fits with what’s popular now and is perfect for generating power for fun.Since the RYi2022 weighs only 53 lbs, you can take it anywhere you need power.Also, a handle that is built right into the case makes it easier to hold, which is very helpful when moving the RYi2022 over any distance.
We could find any videos of the product at the time of writing. Please search YouTube for any update.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
About the Manufacturer
Originally located in Japan, Ryobi Limited is a firm that has mostly specialized on electrical and automotive components during the course of its existence.However, their relatively new power tool division has gained popularity for the high caliber and dependability of its goods, which can now be found on the shelves of well-known merchants all over the world.The majority of the world’s production locations for Ryobi goods are the US, Germany, Japan, and China.
There is a warranty on the Ryobi RYi2022 for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Ryobi’s warranty policies can tell you more about how long their generators are covered.You can also call their customer service line at 1-800-525-2579.
