As of September 2021, Kärcher has released its new one-bay self-service wash system (SB OB). With the new SB OB, Kärcher offers a compact one-bay self-service wash system for high-pressure washes of vehicles. And thanks to numerous configuration options, the new wash system can be easily adapted to individual customer requirements. Whether it is for additional business or in-house vehicle washes, all operators benefit from the robust and durable components and the proven “Made in Germany” Kärcher technology of the new SB OB.
A complete vehicle wash in the smallest of spaces
The new SB OB Kärcher is very compact, making it ideal for operators with limited space. Furthermore, it is easy to use! Selecting the right wash program is incredibly simple for the wash customer as it selected by using a rotary switch, complemented by symbols and LED lamps that show the remaining running time.
The SB OB can be configured as needed. In addition to the four standard wash programs (high pressure, foam, rinse and wax), extra programs for washing the wheel rims, care and maintenance, and the removal of stubborn dirt, can also be added.

Based on the program configuration, the new SB OB can be equipped with up to three wash tools. A power foam lance can be added to the high-pressure lance and foam brush. It enables two additional pre-wash programs: power and wheel rim foam washes. You can also add swivel arms, which easily guide the hoses around the vehicle.
