Zoom on the Realm BY02-BIMK
The Realm BY02-BIMK is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 14.5 amp induction motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 2600 PSI (roughly 43 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-BIMK's cleaning power of 4550 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY02-BIMK 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 D18 x W16 x H26 in, the Realm BY02-BIMK makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-BIMK convenience of transport.
Weighing 55 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. As its motor accounts for a good portion of that weight, Realm's choice of a plastic frame allows the device to stay at a reasonable weight. The BY02-BIMK can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 6" solid wheels.
The Realm BY02-BIMK 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).

The Realm BY02-BIMK's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Realm BY02-BIMK compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Realm BY02-BIMK, with a max water pressure of 2600 PSI, has one of the higher PSI values of the electric products in the $170-200 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX3000-MAX, which reaches up to 2800 PSI.
- Considering the above-mentioned price range, this washer's maximum water flow of 1.75 GPM (gallons per minute) is higher than the average. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2005P, with 1.8 GPM.
- The BY02-BIMK, which reaches up to 4550 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) is one of the most efficient, in comparison to its similarly priced counterparts.
