With a 14.5 amp universal motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 2100 PSI (roughly 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.75 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards), resulting in the Realm BY02-BCMT's cleaning power of 3675 Cleaning Units.

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.
Since the unit weighs only 24.2 lbs, it is very easily carried 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.
The Realm BY02-BCMT comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed 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.
