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, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
With a 11 amp universal motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 1500 PSI (roughly 25 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.5 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards), resulting in the Realm BY01-HBE's cleaning power of 2250 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Realm BY01-HBE's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 18 lbs. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two solid wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.
The Realm BY01-HBE comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its plastic wand can be easily stored in a dedicated slot.
- 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: Stay prepared for any job with Realm BY01-HBE's handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store any nozzles and accessories which you may need for the job.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Realm BY01-HBE also comes with power cord, spray gun, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), pressure hose and wand.
The Realm BY01-HBE's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Realm BY01-HBE compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Realm BY01-HBE, a device which can produce up to 1500 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $100-130 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-VBW-WT with 2100 PSI.
- As this washer can produce a flow of water of 1.5 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned price range. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX has the highest GPM of 1.8.
- With 2250 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the BY01-HBE is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX with its 3690 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Realm BY01-HBE is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
