Realm BY02-BIMH-3000 3000PSI Electric Pressure Washer

Description

Zoom on the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000

The Realm BY02-BIMH-3000, a heavy duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Powered by a 15 amp induction motor, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 3000 PSI (around 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.8 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Combined, these values mean that the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000 has a cleaning power of 5400 Cleaning Units.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY02-BIMH-3000 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 D16 x W18 x H26 in, the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-BIMH-3000 convenience of transport.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 51 lbs. Since the motor accounts for a large part of its weight, Realm's utilization of a plastic frame keeps the unit at a reasonable weight. The BY02-BIMH-3000 can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two solid wheels.

Main Features

The Realm BY02-BIMH-3000's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the gun.
  • Pressure hose: The included 26 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.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000 comes with foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), pressure hose, spray gun, wand and power cord.
