Kärcher launches new compact hot water pressure washer

Kärcher has launched a new compact hot water pressure washer range that offers a number of key cost-saving and time-saving benefits including 20% reduced fuel consumption. The range consists of three models: the flagship HDS 6/12 C 240v which features adjustable water flow and pressure and a steam function; the 110v HDS 6/10 C; and entry-level HDS 5/12 C 240v.

All models in the new range feature Kärcher’s eco!efficiency mode, which reduces fuel consumption by 20% compared to previous models, saving on diesel costs and reducing the amount of time needed for refuelling but without compromising cleaning results. HDS Compact models are also backed by a three-year burner coil warranty.

The new range showcases a contemporary chassis design with a number of details including: large wheels, tilting aid and new handle design for easy manoeuvring; clear, intuitive controls for quick familiarisation and start-up; on-board accessory storage; accurate detergent dosing that reduces waste; easy-pour detergent and diesel tanks to reduce risk of spillages; and proven, high quality materials.

Kärcher’s product manager, Jeff Hilton, said: “The HDS 601 C has been our best-selling hot water machine for over seven years, but we are delighted with the new HDS 6/12 C. It does everything the 601 did well, but with simple improvements to make it easier to use, easier to service and, above all, cheaper to run, without losing any of the appeal of the old machine. The Compact range really sets a new benchmark for compact hot water pressure washers.”
