Zoom on the Realm BY02-BCMH
In a nutshell, the Realm BY02-BCMH is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Using a 14.5 amp motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 2300 PSI (roughly 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.75 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 4025 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY02-BCMH 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 D15 x W17 x H25 in, the Realm BY02-BCMH makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-BCMH convenience of transport.
With a weight of only 24 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. 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.
Along with the Realm BY02-BCMH itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 0.2 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: The 19 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
