The Karcher K7 pressure washer comes with 2800 watts of power. Combined with the flow rate and pressure output 2800 watts places the K7 as a top of the range domestic pressure washer which can also be used for light commercial and industrial work.
The fast flow rate of 8.33 litres per minute is on part with petrol type pressure washers such as the Wolf 200 bar pressure washer. The faster the flow rate the faster you can get through the job.
160 Bar Pressure
The bar pressure is a little lower than the pressure found on petrol pressure washers but 160 bar pressure is fine for any domestic job that you will encounter.
The above figures will allow you to clean approximately 30 square meters in about 30 minutes.
As cold water is taken into the K7 pressure washer it is lead through pipes which surround the motor before being ejected through the high pressure hose. This system allows the motor to keep cool during even the toughest job.
Aluminium Pump Head
Aluminium pump heads are stronger than plastic pump head and so are less likely to crack.
The Karcher K7 Premium Eco pressure washer comes with a quick connect system which allows you to easily change the various attachments that come with the unit.
A great use of the quick connect system is when you are using a detergent to remove dirt and grime from a car and want to change to a clear water lance to spray the detergent away.
These attachments include:
- Vario Lance
- T400 T-racer Patio Cleaner
- Universal Eco Plug & Clean Detergent
- Suction Hose & Filter
The vario lance allows you to set the spray from a fine spray to a very powerful jet that can pinpoint dirt in corners etc. Simply twist the nozzle to change the type of spray.
The dirt blaster provides a strong rotating point jet which is ideal for use on weather worn surfaces.
The patio cleaner comes with an integrated handle so that the unit can also be used on garage doors, caravans, motor homes etc. It also comes with a power nozzle for cleaning corners and edges.
The plug and clean feature allows you to attach a bottle of Karcher detergent directly onto the machine and provides lots of suds to remove grime and dirt from cars, bikes, caravans, motor homes and many more items before washing away with clean water.
Karcher K7 Eco Switch
You can set the Karcher K7 Eco to ‘on’ or to ‘eco’. The eco switch allows for water and energy savings of up to 20% when you use the spray lance.
The eco setting is ideal for cars, bikes, outdoor furniture, gates, fences, decking, sheds, rock walls and much more.
