Power

The Kärcher K2 Entry in use

The Kärcher K2 Entry

Utilizing a 10-amp universal motor, this machine's axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 1600 PSI (around 27 times stronger than a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 1.35 GPM (CETA-certified values). Thus, the Kärcher K2 Entry achieves a cleaning power of 2160 Cleaning Units.

The K2 Entry, an electric washer, gets going swiftly with a simple ON/OFF switch, making startup hassle-free. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

Featuring a portable design and approximate dimensions of L19.7 x W6.9 x H12 in, the Kärcher K2 Entry underscores its dedication to mobility. The handle adds to the K2 Entry convenience of transport. The handle is seamlessly molded into the frame, providing lasting stability and eliminating the possibility of detachment.

At just 10.6 lbs, this unit is incredibly lightweight, ensuring hassle-free mobility wherever you need it. Thanks in part to its plastic frame, it remains lightweight. Despite the lack of wheels, the K2 Entry's light weight makes transportation manageable.

Main Features

The Kärcher K2 Entry's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Despite the absence of a soap tank, detergent supply is facilitated through the use of a siphon hose. Detergent is automatically dispensed when the VPS wand is in low pressure mode.
  • Pressure hose: For easy organization, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be stored on the unit using a set of convenient hooks when it's not in use, ensuring a clutter-free workspace.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its VPS wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook. The Vario Power Spray (VPS) wand allows you to conveniently switch from low to high pressure, and everything between, while you clean. Simply twist the end for infinitely variable pressure adjustment.
