Zoom on the Realm BY02-VBP-WTH
In a nutshell, the Realm BY02-VBP-WTH is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
Powered by a 13 amp motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2000 PSI (around 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Realm BY02-VBP-WTH has a cleaning power of 3200 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY02-VBP-WTH 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 D14 x W13 x H28 in, the Realm BY02-VBP-WTH makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-VBP-WTH convenience of transport.
Standing at only 26 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 6" solid wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.
The Realm BY02-VBP-WTH's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a dedicated 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its plastic wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: two nozzles are included. The adjustable nozzle lets you change spray pattern from a full fan spray (widest spray width) to a direct stream spray (narrowest spray width). The soap nozzle lets you add a cleaning solution to the water stream.
- 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: With the Realm BY02-VBP-WTH's handy storage area, you’ll always have all the necessary nozzles and accessories at hand and thus, you’ll be fully prepared for any job.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Realm BY02-VBP-WTH also comes with pressure hose, power cord, spray gun and wand.
