Zoom on the Realm BY02-BIMK
The Realm BY02-BIMK, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial pump, which utilizes a 14.5 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2600 PSI (almost 43 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.75 GPM. These values correspond to a 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.
The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 55 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. Since the BY02-BIMK has a set of two 6" solid wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
Along with the Realm BY02-BIMK 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. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
- Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 19 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
