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 or delicate surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
The Realm BY02-BIMK's axial pump, powered by a 14.5 amp motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2600 PSI (approximately 43 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.75 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Realm BY02-BIMK thus has 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.
Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 55 lbs. 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. Since the BY02-BIMK has a set of two 6" solid wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated 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: The 19 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
