Zoom on the Realm BY02-BCMT
In a nutshell, the Realm BY02-BCMT 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
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 14.5 amp motor, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 2100 PSI (around 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.75 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Realm BY02-BCMT has a cleaning power of 3675 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Realm BY02-BCMT'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 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.
With a weight of only 24.2 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. 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.
