High pressure in the desert adventure

At the beginning of 2020, the time will have arrived again: The famous Dakar Rally starts on 5 January – this time the host is Saudi Arabia. As a technical partner Kärcher will be involved already for the ninth time in this important sporting event.

The cleaning stations, which are available to all teams during the Rally for cleaning dust and dirt from the vehicles with pressure washers, have established themselves as an important service in recent years and are in great demand. Because only clean vehicles can be maintained and repaired reliably.

Since the last edition of the Dakar Rally, Kärcher has set store by the use of a mobile cleaning station – a lorry constructed specifically for this purpose, which is extensively equipped with cleaning equipment and collects the dirty water. Modern pressure washers can save up to 80 % of the fresh water needed in comparison with manual washing with a water hose, and are therefore an environment-friendly alternative that achieves better results in less time. The washing service is available to participants in six bivouacs and at the finishing line. In addition, Kärcher is again a sponsor of the successful Team X-raid.
