New trigger gun launched for commercial water-pressure washers
Kärcher North America, a subsidiary of Alfred Karcher, is introducing the EASY!Force trigger gun for its line of commercial cold and hot water pressure washers. The new trigger gun uses the recoil force of the water spray to automatically hold the trigger down for the operator, eliminating sore hands after hours of use.
The yellow and black trigger is visible at the back of the handle. The recoil of the water spray presses the handle into the ball of the hand, the company said in a statement. The trigger gun can be used in continuous operation without additional force and effort. A yellow safety lever in the handle prevents accidental operation of the trigger gun.
According to Kärcher, the new EASY!Lock connection system allows set-ups that are five times faster than existing systems. The company said a “simple” 360-degree turn provides a fully-threaded secure connection.
According to the company, the EASY!Force valve consists of a ceramic ball with ceramic sealing seat that is resistant to any particles liable to cause potential damage. This gives it a lifetime five times longer than trigger guns with a conventional valve, the company stated.
Kärcher added that the trigger gun also features a mechanical safety switch to prevent accidental engagement for maximum safety without compromising its ease-of-use.
