Kärcher 4x4 Cleaning Truck Solution

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 last year's Dakar Rally, Kärcher has participated at the event by setting up a mobile cleaning station that not only cleans equipment, but collects the dirty water as well. 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 tents and at the finishing line. In addition, Kärcher is again a sponsor of the successful Team X-raid.
