by Brianna Crandall — November 11, 2019 — Kärcher, a worldwide provider of cleaning technology, has just introduced the Kärcher BD 80/100 W Bp Classic, a walk-behind floor scrubber designed for frequent, everyday use, which happens to have an affordable price tag as well. Intuitive user controls and a highly rugged build make the BD 80/100 a reliable daily cleaning solution without sacrificing quality, says the company.  A robust and maintenance-friendly scrub head with two included disc pad drivers deliver a 32″ cleaning path, making it well suited for large, high-traffic areas.

Rex Shull, director of Product Management, stated:

Product positioning for the BD 80/100 W Bp Classic fulfills customer needs in the US like Kärcher never has before. This unit offers both quality and durability in a cost-effective package. The economically designed scrubber provides all the cleaning power to take on large jobs — perfect for retail environments, grocery stores, healthcare, education and BSCs.

Shull continued:

Innovation does not always mean sophistication. Simplicity for the operators is just as important.

The BD 80/100 W Bp Classic auto scrubber provides excellent site-lines, a simple operator-friendly design, and robust materials for an efficient cleaning performance. The BD 80/100 scrubber has a powerful traction drive, which enables unproblematic travel on inclines and easy maneuverability.

Components, which are exposed to extreme stress in tough working conditions, such as a squeegee and disc brush head, are made from solid die-cast aluminum. With a 32-inch disc cleaning path, a 26-gallon tank and maximum cleaning speed of up to 3 mph, which can be continuously adjusted, the machine achieves area performances of up to 43,600 ft².

In the case of very stubborn dirt or for decoating, the brush contact pressure can be increased at any time from 88 to 200 lbs. The simple operating concept with yellow touch points and the Home Base adapter for carrying manual cleaning equipment provide the operator great comfort and flexibility.

This Kärcher BD 80/100 W Bp Classic is designed to be easy to use, featuring:

  • Storage compartment in the back for shelf charger and other accessories;
  • Perfect recovery in 180 degree turns;
  • Automatic brake integrated into the transaxle; and
  • Large aluminum brush deck included.

Additional benefits include: direction selection buttons, on/off switch, operation lever, speed dial and fully adjustable water flow.

The machine boasts a robust scrub deck, as rugged materials were used on the most critical parts. This creates lower repair costs, less down-time, and longer machine lifetime (wet and AGM battery options are available; a shelf charger is included).

The adjustable brush pressure allows for much greater flexibility for cleaning on all types of floors. It is adaptable to specific application needs. At high pressure, the BD 80/100 W Bp Classic performs very powerful floor stripping, notes the company.
