Kärcher’s Clean Approach
Published on Mar 20 2014 12:38 PM in Technology
Kärcher’s new compact-class hotwater pressure washers are especially economical and environmentally friendly on the 'eco!efficiency' setting. At a comparatively low weight of around 100kg and with compact dimensions, they are easy to transport and load, and will even fit into cramped spaces.
The new machines are well suited for use in a wide range of sectors, from automotive, farming, industry and construction to local authorities and contract cleaning. For the sake of energy efficiency, the water temperature in all models can be varied between 20°C and 155°C.
Many types of soiling are easy to remove at temperatures of around 60°C, so the eco!efficiency mode can be set permanently to reduce fuel consumption by 20%. A further aid is the facility to add a precise dose of detergent. When the machine is switched off, the pipes are automatically flushed with water. When the machine is in operation, LED displays show the status of key functions and provide fault and maintenance alerts.
A further aid to ease of handling is the rotary switch that is used to set the exact water temperature required. Large apertures make the water and detergent tanks easy to fill without opening the cover. All components under the bonnet are also easily accessible for servicing and maintenance. www.kaercher.de
