Choosing The Right Kärcher Sweeper

What is a vacuum sweeper?

Kärcher vacuum sweepers provide high-performance sweeping to remove dirt from interior and exterior surfaces. When in use, the vacuum sweeper disperses dust using a roller brush, then vacuums up the dust using a suction turbine (fan) and deposits the dust collected into a filter system.

How does a vacuum sweeper work?

Kärcher sweeper models use different sweeping principles to deliver exceptional cleaning.

1. The Dustpan Principle (Push & Vacuum Sweepers)

The roller brush turns in the opposite direction to the direction of travel. Consequently, dirt is moved to the front of the sweeper and into the waste container (direct dirt pick-up). Kärcher's push sweepers and industrial vacuum sweepers operate in line with this principle.


  • Low-dust sweeping due to lower brush speeds and a short "sweep path"
  • Less brush wear
  • Ideal for expansive and heavy dirt or fine dust

2. The Throwing Principle (Walk Behind & Ride-On Sweepers)

Dirt is collected in the opposite direction to the direction of travel and is moved into the rear dirt container via the main roller brush. Kärcher's walk-behind vacuum sweepers and ride-on vacuum sweepers operate in line with this principle.


  • Container allows up to 100% fill level
  • Ideal for coarse and light dirt
  • Collects coarse dirt with ease using a coarse dirt flap
  • Good overview due to the forward seating position

On which floors can sweepers and vacuum sweepers be used?

Different floor coverings and types of dirt also place different demands on the vacuum sweeper and relevant system. The standard main sweeper roller is the usual choice and stands out with its flexibility and long lifetime. However, the same roller brush is not suitable for all floor coverings. This is why Kärcher offers various solutions to help you achieve optimal cleaning results.
