Zoom on the Realm BY02-VBP-WTR
In a nutshell, the Realm BY02-VBP-WTR is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
Using a 13 amp 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 claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3200 Cleaning Units.
The BY02-VBP-WTR is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started 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-WTR makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-VBP-WTR convenience of transport.
With a weight of only 29 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. 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-WTR comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 19 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
- 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 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).
- 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-WTR also comes with pressure hose, power cord, spray gun and wand.
