What this means is that you get longer cleaning times without the inconvenience of constant refills of the water tank.

  • It rolls on wheels for convenience.
  • It features the cutting edge variable floor control. This means that you can regulate the amount of hot vapour and pressure to apply on different surface textures. Be careful though when cleaning plastic and silicon surfaces. Use the lowest temperature possible to keep the material from warping.
  • It cleans a treat on almost all surfaces in your home. From kitchen worktops to curtain lining, carpets, grouting and upholstery. You can use this sc2 Karcher on lino, vinyl, sealed wood and tiles to mention but a few.

  • Above all; the sc2 has a child safety lock so that only an adult can pull the trigger when required, else it cannot release.
