Kärcher BD 38/12 C BP Small/Medium Scrubber Dryer

Rent this highly compact, maintenance-free scrubber drier for fast, thorough cleaning of small-medium areas. Lightweight, quiet and agile compact scrubber dryer with disc head for smooth floors.


Highly manoeuvrable, user-friendly and easy-to-maintain, the BD 38/12 C scrubber drier is a professional and efficient machine for cleaning small areas and cluttered surfaces. The lithium-ion battery has a prolonged running time, making it 3 times more durable than normal lead batteries.

It is completely maintenance-free and quick to recharge whilst the eco!efficiency mode increases running time and reduces energy consumption by up to 40%. The 38/12 is perfect for healthcare, retail, contract cleaning and a wide range of other applications.

Disc brush head

The disc head of the BD 38/12 C is ideal for use on smooth, flat surfaces and can be used in conjunction with brushes or pads.

Easy storage and transport

The steering column of the BD 38/12 C folds up quickly and easily which allows for easy storage and transportation.

Faster, longer, lighter – Li-Ion technology

The high performance battery for the BD 38/12 C is extremely light – resulting in reduced weight and increased handling and mobility of the machine. The Li-Ion technology also allows for quick recharge times, the ability to opportunity charge and a life span that is approximately 3 times longer than standard lead-acid batteries. This
means a machine that is always ready to use.

The next level of efficiency

Kärcher’s eco!efficiency mode is a milestone on the path towards sustainability: it utilises energy and resources intelligently. Noise levels, energy and water consumption is reduced which result in greater run times and the ability to use the machine in noise sensitive areas.

High-performance on-board charger
The charger is always there; charging is always possible. Can be fully recharged in three hours or semi-charged in one hour. (Interim charges possible at any time.) Charger automatically switches itself off. No energy consumption in standby operation.
