The design of the new Kärcher spray guns for garden watering follows closely in line with the company's corporate industrial design. The powerful lines, based on the dynamics of the flowing water, can be seen clearly. The spray guns offer a range of handy equipment features, depending on the version. Rotatable handles on four of the models allow the user to operate the spray gun either by pulling back with a finger or by pressing with the ball of the thumb. A locking mechanism also makes longer periods of watering easier, without the operator having to constantly press the trigger. The water volume can be adjusted with one hand.
