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, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Using a 14.5 amp universal motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 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). Together, the values result in 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. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two solid wheels.
The Realm BY02-BCMT's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.2 gal tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 19 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
