Kärcher Full Control pressure washers. Impossible? Done!
All eyes are on the Full Control Plus Power Gun on the new Full Control Plus devices because it is the most important interface between the operator and the pressure washer. Kärcher has moved all of the important functions onto the Full Control Plus Power Gun and spray lance for maximum control during every use. Multiple spray types are covered using a single spray lance with the 3-in-1 Multi Jet. Furthermore, the device also features a central and easily accessible parking position, allowing the Full Control Power Gun with mounted spray lance to be compactly stowed during work breaks and after the work is completed. Devices in the K 2 through K 4 performance classes also offer application advice. Here, the pressure is regulated via the spray lance and the pressure stage is displayed on the trigger gun (K 3/K 4) or on the spray lance (K 2).
Advantages that make the difference
- By turning the 3-in-1 Multi Jet, various spray types can be selected directly – so that you can work without changing the spray lance.
- Which pressure setting is best suited to the respective application is indicated by symbols on the 3-in-1 Multi Jet spray lance.
- The pressure levels HARD, MEDIUM and SOFT can be selected conveniently by means of the +/– buttons on the Full Control Plus Power Gun.
- Also, the detergent output MIX can be selected via the trigger gun and regulated using the +/– buttons.
- The clear LCD display on the Full Control Plus Power Gun continuously shows the selected pressure level so that you have full control at all times.
The Compact Range
- The pressure washers in the new robust Compact range are especially compact and extremely versatile. The K 4–K 7 models can be used both while upright and while lying flat.
- The convenient PremiumFlex anti-twist hose on the K 7 is especially robust. And the high-pressure hose on the K 2 to 4 models can be hung up over the front cover so it is within reach at all times.
- Thanks to the integrated suction mechanism, detergents can be applied without any extra effort.
- The motors of the K 4 to 7 models are water-cooled – for maximum performance and long-term durability.
Simple To Transport
The second carrying handle on the underside of the Compact devices enables them to be stored simply on a shelf or in the boot of a car.
Easy to Store
The K 4 to 7 models have high-quality aluminium telescopic handles which can be conveniently extended and pushed together again for storage.
Innovative hose storage concept
The clever way to store your hose: the high-pressure hose of the K 5 and K 7 models can be conveniently wound up and secured with the elastic strap for transport or to store it after use.
Application areas for pressure washer
Pressure washers are the most effective way to clean outdoors and are extremely easy to use: connect the device to the water supply and power outlet, turn on the tap, switch on the pressure washer and let the cleaning fun begin! With matching special accessories, the devices are transformed into real all-rounders: whether for wet blasting, pipe cleaning, terrace cleaning or gutter cleaning, the application possibilities are virtually unlimited. On top of that, the water pressure is always greatest in the immediate vicinity of the nozzle. This means that stubborn dirt is cleaned away more easily with lower nozzle clearance. The clearance is increased accordingly for light dirt and sensitive surfaces. Our practical examples show how you can achieve the best 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.
Special accessories and cleaning agents ensure thorough and gentle vehicle care. To make your vehicle sparkle in just a few simple steps,, 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.
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.
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.
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 Karcher 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.
The cleaning performance of a pressure washer is determined by the combination of water pressure and water volume. The better these two factors are aligned, the easier it is to remove stubborn dirt and the quicker large surface areas can be cleaned. Kärcher puts its devices into specific performance classes based on different cleaning requirements. The larger the surface area to be cleaned and/or the more stubborn the dirt, the higher the performance class recommended. To clean large surface areas such as façades, a K 7 device with matching accessories is recommended. As well as offering better performance, higher performance classes also offer practical additional functions. These include longer hose lengths for a considerably greater working radius. This ensures short set-up and dismantling times and considerably more comfort, especially in the case of frequent use.
How does a pressure washer work?
Pressure in a normal household water supply can be up to 4 bar. Water supplied into the pressure sprayer via a garden hose, passes through a booster pump which generates water pressure of up to 160 bar. The water is ejected through a small high-pressure nozzle as a concentrated jet with a high cleaning effect.
Easy on the environment, and your pocket
K4 – K7 class power washers can also be operated using an alternative water source. The device simply draws the water from any available water reservoir (e.g. a water butt). This allows the pressure washers to be used during a hose-pipe ban and makes them environmentally friendly. A further advantage is that independence from the water mains affords greater flexibility and increases the working radius.
