The Kärcher K3 Follow Me in use

The Kärcher K3 Follow Me

The Kärcher K3 Follow Me comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.3 gal tank. However, since the Kärcher K3 Follow Me does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. Detergent is automatically dispensed when the VPS wand is in low pressure mode.

  • Spray gun and wand: A set of notches allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its VPS wand. 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.
