Kärcher BR 45/22 C Compact Medium Scrubber Dryer

Compact battery operated scrubber dryer with rotating roller brush head and KART steering technology for maximum manoeuvrability.


The Kärcher BR45/22 scrubber dryer is perfect for large areas with narrow spaces or cluttered furniture which restricts larger machines.

Equipped with a roller brush head which rotates 200° in either direction thanks to Kärcher Advanced Response Technology, it delivers a large working width combined with exceptional manoeuvrability. The positioning of the brushes and squeegees ensure an increase in the area performance, and the built in lithium-ion batteries offer up to 3x longer lifetime than conventional lead batteries.

The innovative eco!efficiency mode can increase run times and reduce noise for up to 40% – perfect for those unavoidable daytime cleaning jobs.


Rotatable brush head

The brush head of the BR 45/22 C is an outstanding technical innovation; it can be rotated up to 200 degrees in either direction. The floor is scrubbed and dried regardless of the position of the steering wheel – even in reverse.


Built-in pre-sweep tray

Thanks to the counter-rotating brushes the BR 45/22 C is capable of sweeping up small debris such as stones, leaves, woodchips and screws. These are then collected in the pre-sweep tray which prevents them from blocking the suction bar.


Faster, longer, lighter – Li-Ion technology

The high performance battery for the BR 45/22 C is extremely light – resulting in an overall 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.
