The Karcher CV 38/2 upright brush-type vacuum cleaner is designed for very high requirements in respect of cleaning and area performances. Its extra-large working width also allows larger areas to be cleaned in various applications from the hotel sector and restaurants to retail trade through to showrooms. The low weight makes possible fatigue-free, longer working times, whereas the accessories integrated on the device make cleaning edges or alcoves comfortable and simple and an optical brush adjustment aid permits an exact adjustment of the brush to the height of the carpet fibre. The quick-change system for the power cable during servicing, the tool-free replacement of the brush, as well as the handle which sits perfectly in the hand, are also ergonomically designed. A specially developed and patented removal system also ensures almost dust-free replacement of the extremely tear-resistant fleece filter bags.
