The B 80 W from Karcher is an 80-litre walk-behind scrubber dryer designed for areas between 1500 and 3000 square metres. Simplicity and time saving are the key criteria for any user when purchasing a machine like this, and the B 80 W meets those needs. One of the features that impressed the judges most was the intelligent RFID key system. This consists of three different keys with different levels of authorisation – there is one for the operator, one for the supervisor/facilities manager and one for the service technician. All necessary data is stored and memorised on each user’s key, so the operator becomes comfortable with the machine very quickly, which means that the risk of errors is minimised and training time reduced.
Other features such as automatic tank filling and rinsing, eco-efficient operation and the tool carrying accessories make this a practical, easy-to-use machine. The judges felt Karcher has introduced some apparently simple features which have in fact been very thoroughly thought-out and show a real understanding of how the machine operators work day-to-day.
