Karcher BV 5/1 Dry Vacuum Cleaner


The new backpack vacuum cleaner Karcher BV 5/1 dry vacuum cleaner can be carried comfortably on the back like a rucksack above all because of its low weight of just 5.3 kg.

The BV 5/1 is particularly used where it is too tight for conventional vacuum cleaners, such as: between seat rows of cinemas and theatres, in buses, trains and aeroplane cabs, in stairways of hotels and offices as well as in strongly transferred areas.

The Karcher BV 5/1 dry vacuum cleaner has been designed for ergonomic working with the extremely comfortable stretcher rack (with patented ventilation system) and is equipped with padded shoulder and lap belts, which can be adjusted individually to the operator.

The large on/off switch on the side of the container is well attainable. Owing to the concentrically arranged dust extraction hose the equipment can be used of right- and left-handed people as well.

The 15 m long mains cable allows a large working radius even on stairs or scaffolds.
