The Realm BY02-VBP-WTH is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
Using a 13 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (roughly 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3200 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY02-VBP-WTH 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 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.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 26 lbs. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 6" solid wheels.
The Realm BY02-VBP-WTH comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a dedicated tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.

- 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: The Realm BY02-VBP-WTH allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
