Kärcher has developed the EASY!Force Advanced trigger gun for high-pressure cleaners for commercial use. Its most notable feature is the trigger, which is pressed into the handle using the ball of the hand. The recoil effect of the high-pressure jet results in significantly reduced holding force being required. This ergonomic solution takes the pressure off the operator and helps to make cleaning work effortless. The interface between the individual modules – the trigger gun, lance, nozzle and hose – has also been redesigned: EASY!Lock minimizes set-up times and ensures a tight connection with just a single twist (360°).
