Karcher Intros New Cleaning Tool

Karcher, the world leader in cleaning technology, has introduced the all new B 60 Scubber.

The Karcher B 60 features traction drive; walk-behind scrubbers; nearly a 16-gallon fresh and recovery tank-in-tank design; tool-free interchangeable modular disc or cylindrical scrubbing heads; a 33.5-inch vacuum squeegee; and Karcher’s Intelligent Key (KIK) system.

Its slim design is ideal for narrow passages and irregularly shaped areas, and low operating noise output makes it ideally suitable for cleaning noise-sensitive areas such as offices, hospitals, and hotels.

The Karcher B 60 is engineered for more efficient use of resources. Karcher’s Intelligent Key (KIK) system enables the facility manager to program unique cleaning profiles, making it easier to train users and operate the scrubber.

The KIK system can be used to set varying levels of authorized access by means of three color-coded keys—yellow, gray, and red—for operators, facility managers, and technicians.

Facility managers can set parameters such as travel speed, brush speed, and motor output to suit the needs of various cleaning applications. ]

An operator’s key carries out the pre-determined settings, needing only to select their desired cleaning program from a rotary switch. This system practically eliminates operating errors.

The Karcher B 60 supports six different cleaning programs, including eco!efficiencytm, an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly cleaning setting, which is ideal for maintenance cleaning of most floors and operates with a reduced motor output and a lower brush rotation speed.

The Karcher B 60’s modular cleaning heads can be removed in just three moves without using tools to enable easy changing of brush heads for different floor types and applications.

The addition of the S 65 orbital head allows the Karcher B 60 to perform different cleaning techniques. The S 65 head is ideal for chemical-free stripping and can also be used in daily maintenance cleaning of smooth floors or sensitive floors that require less pressure.

The S 65 head uses a random orbital motion to clean over its entire surface area. While its rectangular shape makes it ideal for cleaning in corners, its low deck height makes it the best possible solution for scrubbing under shelves and other immovable fixtures.

When work is done, the dirty water tank can be cleaned easily with an optional rinsing system built into the lid, protecting the operator from splashes.

Nozzles arranged in a ring in the tank lid ensure automatic and thorough cleaning. The lid can then be locked in place to air dry the tank. This greatly reduces the risk of microbial contamination and foul odors, making the Karcher B 60 suitable for hygienically sensitive areas, such as food processing.

An optional Quick Fill In system connects the fresh water tank to a water source via a hose and stops automatically as soon as the maximum filling level is reached, so the operator can carry out other duties while the unit fills.

Additional optional accessories such as a mop, cloths, or detergent bottles can be fastened to various holders and hooks before starting to clean, or stowed in a box for small items, so they are always ready to hand.
