Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D14 x W14 x H21 in, the Realm BY02-BCMT makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-BCMT convenience of transport.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 24.2 lbs. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible.
