The Realm BY02-VBP-WTH, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas

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.
With a weight of only 26 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. A set of two 6" solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
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 is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its plastic wand.
- 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: The Realm BY02-VBP-WTH features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
