Kärcher won the 2014 Innovation Award in both the Equipment Category and Visitor’s Choice Category at the ISSA/INTERCLEAN show in Orlando, FL, the trade show for cleaning professionals. The Kärcher BR 35/12 C Bp was the winner and competed with 50 other entries.
The BR 35/12 C Bp floor scrubber features a new steering concept (KART – Kärcher Advanced Response Technology). KART provides outstanding maneuverability, as the steering wheel directly controls the machine’s brush head. The steering of the brush head dictates the travel and cleaning direction while the propulsion force of the roller brush drives the machine forward. This allows the user to clean away from a wall at right angles and reach tight corners. Turning the brush head inward allows the BR 35/12 C Bp to clean in reverse. The stainless steel steering column is height adjustable and can be folded down for storage and transportation.
The roller brush cleans highly structured floors efficiently, thanks to a small surface area ensuring high contact pressure. The roller brush can also be used for pre-sweeping, combining the functions of sweeping, scrubbing and drying in a single pass. A variety of roller brushes – such as pad or microfiber rollers – are also available for different floor types and cleaning applications.
The lithium-ion battery used in the BR 35/12 C Bp can be completely charged in just three hours, allowing the user to work uninterrupted for more than an hour, or up to 90-minutes in eco!efficiency mode. Eco!efficiency is a selectable mode that allows the scrubber to operate at approximately 70% of power and reduces water consumption. In this mode, sound is also reduced by approximately 40%.
“We’re excited to win both categories for this new product, which is not only innovative, but fun to use,” says Kärcher Professional Marketing Manager, Richard Neff.
