Hingabe kümmert sich nicht um Schmutz.
Piraten kümmern sich nicht um Schmutz.
Das macht der Hochdruckreiniger K 7.85 M plus.
Das macht der Dampfreiniger SC 1402.

Kinder sind die leidenschaftlichsten Menschen überhaupt.
Was immer sie tun – sie tun es mit ganzem Herzen.
Wir haben uns etwas bei den Kindern abgeguckt und
mit viel Leidenschaft den T-Racer entwickelt. Damit
kriegen Sie Ihre Terrasse schnell wieder sauber. Ohne nass
zu werden. Und ohne „Du machst ja alles schmutzig“.
Was uns Menschen von Maschinen unterscheidet, ist, dass wir
Gefühle haben. Und sie auch rauslassen. In Form von Lachen,
Schreien oder Plantschen. Unser Dampfreiniger hat keine Gefühle.
Aber er erlaubt uns, welche zu haben. Dank seines ZweitankSystem kann er auch während des Betriebs nachgefüllt werden.
Und reinigt so mit permanenter Dampfkraft. Ganz ohne Chemie.
