Zoom on the Realm BY02-BCMT
The Realm BY02-BCMT is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial pump, which utilizes a 14.5 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2100 PSI (almost 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.75 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 3675 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY02-BCMT gets easily started by a simple 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 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.
Standing at only 24.2 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two solid wheels.
Along with the Realm BY02-BCMT 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: Detergent is stored in a removable 0.2 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- 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 side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
- Nozzles: The 5 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

The Realm BY02-BCMT's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Realm BY02-BCMT compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- Able to deliver a maximum pressure of 2100 PSI, the Realm BY02-BCMT is one of the electric products that produce an above average water pressure, in the $100 to $150 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Realm BIOP, which reaches up to 2400 PSI.
- The water flow of this washer, which reaches up to 1.75 GPM (gallons per minute) is one of the higher values found in the above-mentioned price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Sun Joe SPX3001, that can deliver up to 1.76 GPM.
- Reaching up to 3675 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the BY02-BCMT is one of the most efficient amongst its similarly priced peers.
