Zoom on the Realm BY02-VBW-WT
In summary, the Realm BY02-VBW-WT is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
With a 13 amp universal motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 2100 PSI (roughly 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards), resulting in the Realm BY02-VBW-WT's cleaning power of 3360 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Realm BY02-VBW-WT's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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 D13.5 x W12 x H24 in, the Realm BY02-VBW-WT makes mobility one of its core strengths. The telescopic handle further eases storage and offers a convenient pulling height, allowing effortless transportation.
Since the unit weighs only 24.9 lbs, it is very easily carried around. 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.
The Realm BY02-VBW-WT's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
- 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.
- Nozzle: an adjustable nozzle is included. It lets you adjust the spray pattern from a full fan spray (widest spray width) to a direct stream spray (narrowest spray width).
- 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-VBW-WT 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: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Realm BY02-VBW-WT comes with spray gun, pressure hose, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), power cord and wand.
