Zoom on the Realm BY01-VBS-WT
In a nutshell, the Realm BY01-VBS-WT is a light to medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
The Realm BY01-VBS-WT's axial pump, powered by a 13 amp motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1900 PSI (approximately 32 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.65 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Realm BY01-VBS-WT thus has a cleaning power of 3135 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Realm BY01-VBS-WT'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 D13 x W12 x H26 in, the Realm BY01-VBS-WT makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY01-VBS-WT convenience of transport.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 24.9 lbs. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. A set of two solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
Along with the Realm BY01-VBS-WT itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its plastic wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- 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-VBS-WT allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: The Realm BY01-VBS-WT 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 wand, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), pressure hose, spray gun and power cord.
The Realm BY01-VBS-WT'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-VBS-WT compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- Reaching a 1900 PSI max pressure output, the Realm BY01-VBS-WT has an expected pressure value, compared to the other electric units in the $100 to $150 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Realm BIOP that can reach up to 2400 PSI.
- In the aforementioned price range, the 1.65 GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer makes it one of the better performing units in terms of the delivered volume of water. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Sun Joe SPX3200, with a GPM of 1.76.
- Reaching up to 3135 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the BY01-VBS-WT is one of the more efficient amongst its similarly priced peers. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Realm BY02-BCMT and its 3675 Cleaning Units.
