Karcher SC3


The Karcher SC3 is a compact, lightweight, cylinder-style steam cleaner with a floor-head for mopping. The accompanying tools for detailed cleaning can be used at the end of the lance to achieve a long reach.

Karcher does it again with this mid-priced cylinder that makes light work of steam cleaning.

Another quality product from Karcher


Would recommend to anyone who wants a reliable, versatile multi purpose steamer. Only negative is that a longer power cable would be a bonus.
