Zoom on the Realm BY02-BCOH
The Realm BY02-BCOH 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
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
Powered by a 13 amp universal 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 1.6 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Combined, these values mean that the Realm BY02-BCOH has a cleaning power of 3360 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY02-BCOH is started simply by an 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 D13 x W13 x H21 in, the Realm BY02-BCOH makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-BCOH convenience of transport.
Because the device weighs just 17 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 4" solid wheels.
The Realm BY02-BCOH comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
- 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its plastic wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- Nozzle: an adjustable nozzle is included. It lets you adjust the spray pattern from a full fan spray (widest spray width) to a direct stream spray (narrowest spray width).
- Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
- Onboard storage: Stay prepared for any job with Realm BY02-BCOH's handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store any nozzles and accessories which you may need for the job.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: Included with the Realm BY02-BCOH are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as wand, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), power cord, spray gun, pressure hose, tool kit and nozzle cleaner.
