The JTK 38 high-pressure cleaner was developed exclusively for the Japanese market. Its compact dimensions meet a significant local requirement – it can be stored even in the smallest of spaces. Accessories can be attached directly to the machine, while practical hose storage is also provided, which is otherwise not standard in this class. Thanks to its light weight of only 3.95 kg, the JTK 38 can be transported to wherever it is needed with the flexible, effective and convenient carrying handle. The classic design in Kärcher yellow and black makes the machine instantly recognizable.
