Kärcher redefines pressure washer cleaning with new trigger gun, with the mission statement, “Reinventing the feel: Zero Power, Full Force.”

Introducing "EASY!Force", the patent-packed concept’s most exciting innovation is the trigger, which is pushed into the handle with the ball of the hand. This change means when the trigger is operated, the recoil of the water jet automatically presses the trigger into the hand for effortless use. The reduced force prevents hand and finger strain and in turn muscle cramps; ideal for both those operating machines frequently and inexperienced hirers who haven’t the grip strength for prolonged use.

Further advances include the redesign of both interfaces from the trigger gun to the lance and high-pressure hose. A quadruple trapezoidal thread, "EASY!Lock", allows a tight and reliable connection with only a single turn (360°); perfect for those working in gloves or cold conditions.

A total of 476 accessory parts have been converted to the new EASY!Lock screw thread, including those connecting lance to nozzle and hose to pressure washer - meaning hirers now only need one gun and one lance to fit all their machine fleet and, thanks to special adaptors, old and new machines and accessories can be mixed and matched. Suitable for all Kärcher pressure washers up to 300 bar.
