Electric Pressure Washers
Why Karcher makes a difference. Whether gentle treatment or powerful cleaning – Karcher pressure washers offer the perfect solution for every cleaning task. Where previously dirt dominated, now there is nothing but cleanliness. Karcher adds value to your environment and gives back value: old becomes new, shabby becomes chic. Passionate engineering, the highest quality requirements and decades of experience in the development of innovative high-pressure cleaners make this possible.
Application areas for pressure washers
Pressure washers are the most effective way to clean outdoor areas and are extremely easy to use: connect the unit to a water supply and power outlet, turn on the tap, switch on the pressure washer and let the cleaning fun begin! You can easily adjust the water pressure by turning the Vario Spray Wand and also by moving closer to or further away from the surface you're cleaning. Encounter an area that's difficult to clean? Use the Dirtblaster Spray Wand. Combined with accessories, pressure washers are transformed into real all-rounders: for everything from deck to gutter cleaning, the possibilities are virtually unlimited. Looking for more tips? Our examples show how you can achieve the best cleaning results with your pressure washer.
Pressure washers offer the right solution for every cleaning task!
Our research shows that some of the more common outdoor cleaning projects include:
- lawn and garden tools/machines
- patio furniture
- fences and walkways
- motorcycles and scooters
- small cars
- steps and entrances
- mid-size cars, trucks and SUV's
- brick and stone walls
- RV's and off-road vehicles
- swimming pools and large patio areas
- home exteriors and driveways
See below for some examples of possible applications:
Mossy stones and brick
Since moss not only forms a thick layer on stones and brick, but also gets into the pores, a Dirtblaster is recommended to remove it. The Dirtblaster nozzle produces a concentrated spray that rotates at high speed. Hold the trigger gun vertical to the mossy surface and slowly clean from one edge to the other at a distance of around 8 to 12 inches.
Kärcher special accessories and cleaning agents ensure thorough and gentle vehicle care. To make your vehicle sparkle in just a few simple steps, and ensure that it stays that way, first use the Vario Power Spray Wand to rinse off loose dirt. Then apply detergent using either the low pressure setting on the Vario Power Spray wand, or for an even more luxurious car wash-style foam, an optional Foam Nozzle. Apply the foam from top to bottom, making sure not to let it dry. Increase the pressure on the Vario Power Spray Wand to rinse away the foam and all dirt/debris. For areas that require more attention, an optional brush can be attached to the spray wand to help loosen up bugs and dried on dirt/mud.
Decks and Patios
Our Deck & Driveway surface cleaners ensure optimum cleaning results with a gentle action, even over large areas. With two high-pressure nozzles that spin at high speed, it creates a hovercraft effect which makes cleaning easy, quick and consistent. The outer body prevents splashback, thereby protecting both you and the walls from spray. For larger areas such as decks and driveways, you'll appreciate how much quicker you can clean, as well as the evenness of the cleaning, imparting a more professional appearance.
Say goodbye to scrubbing! Dirt and soil can be removed efficiently from plant and flower pots, spades, shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, etc. in next to no time using a Kärcher pressure washer. The Vario Power Spray Wand and Dirtblaster Spray Wand are particularly suited to this task. Working in the garden has never been easier or less dirty!
Easily tackle unsightly areas on garden furniture – as a result of pollution, weather or the previous winter – with the Kärcher Vario Power Spray Wand. An optional Kärcher wash brush and detergent are recommended for cleaning more stubborn areas of soiling.
Before cleaning close the shutters. Set the spray lance to low pressure and apply Kärcher Multipurpose Cleaner. Start at the lowest section of the shutters. Allow the detergent to work in for a few minutes so that the dirt is loosened completely, but don't allow it to dry. Finally, remove the dissolved dirt with the Soft Bristle Wash Brush and rinse the detergent and dirt away with the Vario Power Spray Wand.
Easy on the environment and your pocket
Our K3, K4 and K5 electric pressure washers can also be operated with an alternative water source. The pressure washer can draw water from any available water reservoir (e.g. a water bucket). This allows you to use captured water and is environmentally friendly. A further advantage is that independence from the water tap affords greater flexibility and increases the working radius of the pressure washer. (Note: this feature is not available on K2 or K1700-K2000 electric pressure washers)
