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, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
The Realm BY02-BCMT's axial pump, powered by a 14.5 amp motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2100 PSI (approximately 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.75 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). The Realm BY02-BCMT thus has 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.
Because the device weighs just 24.2 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. 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 storage is ensured by a removable 0.2 gal tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.

- With a water flow of up to 1.75 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the upper end of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the WEN PW21, that can deliver up to 1.76 GPM.
- With a rather impressive value of 3675 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the BY02-BCMT has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices.
