Kärcher closes gap in sweeper portfolio, with launch of new MC 250
Work freely, swiftly and for longer with the new MC 250 sweeper from Kärcher. Combining speed with ultimate operator comfort and outstanding sweeping performance, Kärcher's latest addition to the municipal range is perfectly designed for the cityscape.
Featuring a spacious and comfortable two person cab, all-wheel steering system for easy manoeuvrability and large waste container to keep you on the road for longer, this machine enables users to complete any municipal cleaning task with excellence and ease.
These new user-friendly advancements complement the environmentally-friendly low-emission Euro Stage 6 or Stage V engines and reliability for which the Kärcher brand is recognised.
The development of the new MC 250 sweeper closes a gap in the Kärcher portfolio, with machines now available in all classes between 0.5 to 6 cubic metres.
Sweepers are an essential part of municipal cleaning in both the city centre and on the outskirts of cities, meaning that vehicles are often required to cover long distances between applications. Frequent journeys to and from work sites lead to 'lost' idle-time which is hugely inefficient. The MC 250 provides a remedy for this 'lost time' through the combination of a 60km/hr transport speed and container volume of 2.2cu.m which ensures users are fully set to clean wherever they need to go.
With the rise in low-emission zones in cities, Kärcher has made sure that this new sweeper emits the lowest emissions possible. The MC 250 satisfies the requirements of the 2.5 PM class within engine category Euro 6/Stage V in compliance with current environmental standards.
For this new sweeper, fine dust and sand particles pose no more of a problem than coarse dirt. The MC 250 delivers unparallelled cleaning results as a result of its optimised airflow which further increases the effectiveness of the sweeper compared to other models. The sweeper's individually controlled brush system means dirt in different areas can be easily reached, while the use of the weed brush delivers a more precise cleaning result.
A water recirculation system and a separate tank for the dirtied water are also integrated.
Everyday machine maintenance is made simple with all service components easy to reach via access points, with the engine also directly accessible thanks to the fold-out water tank.
When it comes to operator comfort, the MC 250 features many upgrades including: LED lighting in the cab, a USB charging facility as well as a spacious storage area for the driver and passenger. The central display and ergonomic operating panel have been carefully selected after rigorous testing and the hydro-pneumatic suspension on both axles, plus single-wheel suspension on the front axle means any bumps or uneven ground are comfortably driven over.
