Strategy

THE BEST OF ITS KIND


The higher the water pressure, the more efficiently a high-pressure cleaner works – and using hot water enhances the machine’s performance even more. The HDS high-pressure cleaner heats the water to a temperature of up to 155°C, which considerably reduces the amount of detergents required and speeds up the cleaning process. Accordingly, the cleaner is a popular choice for professional applications that call for mobility combined with excellent efficiency. The HDS lays claim to market leadership with every detail of its design and has become a synonym for the “steam cleaner” category.

Innovation

ROBUST AND ECONOMICAL


The development of the HDS incorporates many practical solutions that are extremely important for professional users. All the adjustment elements and filling apertures, for instance, are located on the back for convenient access. The big, robust wheels, sturdy handles and lashing rings facilitate mobility and transport. And with the new eco-mode, the machine automatically stays within the most economical temperature range – a cost-reducing option that is only available from Kärcher.

Design

CREATED FOR PROFESSIONALS


Right from the start, the design of the HDS set the benchmarks for an entire category of appliances. Its striking design elements ensure optimal usability, communicate the core brand values and are made to last, combining an enduring aesthetic with remarkable robustness. The HDS enjoys special status within the Kärcher portfolio too – we have been able to incorporate references to its design in many other products for the company.
