Zoom on the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR
In summary, the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
Using a 13 amp universal motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 2400 PSI (roughly 40 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.75 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 4200 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BY03-VBP-WTR is started simply 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 D13 x W14 x H28 in, the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY03-VBP-WTR convenience of transport.
With a weight of only 30 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two solid wheels.
Along with the Realm BY03-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 is stored in a 0.2 gal tank. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
- Pressure hose: The included 19 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
- 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 BY03-VBP-WTR's handy storage area lets you store nozzles and accessories, and thus, you’ll be always prepared and have everything necessary for the job at hand.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
