In summary, the Realm BY02-VBP-WTR is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D14 x W13 x H28 in, the Realm BY02-VBP-WTR makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-VBP-WTR convenience of transport.
Standing at only 29 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. A set of two 6" solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
Along with the Realm BY02-VBP-WTR itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail 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: Using a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan, 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 enables you to easily store 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-WTR allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: Included with the Realm BY02-VBP-WTR are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as wand, power cord, spray gun and pressure hose.
