Pressure washers, or pressure cleaners, are popular with a huge range of customers and industries across the board, from automotive to building, hospitality, government and more. At LTS Equipment, we can’t go past Kärcher pressure washers for a top-quality clean.

Clean with or without detergent, control water pressure and save costs with the environmentally friendly ECO mode. If you’re not sure which model – petrol or electric pressure washer – suits your needs, our friendly team is happy to get you up to date on the pros and cons.

Electric pressure washers

Electric pressure washers give maximum control to the user, with a choice between hot and cold water models and single and three phase motors. With portable and upright designs including pivoting spray lances and height-adjustable handles, electric pressure cleaners are designed for long periods of cleaning over large areas.

The Kärcher range features an automatic switch off option, as well as ECO mode – allowing users to choose when and where to use full power and reducing energy and water consumption by up to 20 per cent.

Petrol pressure washers

Kärcher petrol pressure washers are the reliable choice for extreme cleaning in large, remote areas where access to mains power supply is limited. Both hot and cold water models are ideal for well-ventilated environments where petrol fumes can dissipate.

LTS Equipment supplies heavy-duty pressure washers with large wheels and air tyres for easy manoeuvrability, even on tough terrain.
