Zoom on the Realm BY01-HBE
In a nutshell, the Realm BY01-HBE is a light duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
Its axial pump, which utilizes a 11 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1500 PSI (almost 25 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2250 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY01-HBE is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L17.5 x W12.6 x H11.3 in, the Realm BY01-HBE makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY01-HBE convenience of transport.
Standing at only 18 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two solid wheels.
The Realm BY01-HBE's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
- Pressure hose: The included 19 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A dedicated slot allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its plastic wand.
- Nozzle: an adjustable nozzle is included. It lets you adjust the spray pattern from a full fan spray (widest spray width) to a direct stream spray (narrowest spray width).
- Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
- Onboard storage: The Realm BY01-HBE features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: The Realm BY01-HBE comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get spray gun, wand, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), power cord and pressure hose.

- The Realm BY01-HBE with its 1500 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other electric pressure washers in the $80-110 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Realm BY02-BCOH with 2100 PSI.
- With a maximum GPM of 1.5 (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the top in terms of water flow, in its respective price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Realm BY01-VBS-WT, which can reach up to 1.65 GPM.
- Amongst similarly priced electric devices, the 2250 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the BY01-HBE rank as low. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Realm BY02-BCOH and its 3360 Cleaning Units.
