Madison to distribute Kärcher products

Madison has partnered with Kärcher for distribution of its OC3 portable cleaner.

The OC3 isn’t a pressure washer, running at five bar rather than the 110 of dedicated pressure unit. The distributor claims that this makes it ideal for use on delicate parts of a bike such as the headset and bottom bracket bearings.

With a four-litre capacity, the OC3 makes efficient use of water, but can be connected to larger, external, tanks using a suction hose. In line with that, the built-in lithium-ion battery retains a 15min charge.

As well as the unit itself, the OC3 has additional accessory boxes available including the Adventure Box and the Pet Box. The Adventure Box has an additional Universal Brush, which attaches to the end of the nozzle and the suction hose for use with a larger water tank.

Madison Kärcher brand manager John Harris said: “We are really pleased to be working with Kärcher on the OC3 portable washer. They have entered into the mobile washer market with considerable strength, given the brand recognition, and we think it is an excellent proposition for our retailers and end consumers alike. It’s a great solution for keeping your car clean after a muddy ride and making the process of maintaining your bike easier. It comes in at a great price and we are confident it will be a real success amongst our extensive dealer network.”

After sales care will be handled by Kärcher directly, and the OC3 comes with a two-year warranty. Price-wise, the OC3 will start at a promotional RRP of £129.99 – SRP £149.99, and units are available to pre-order for Madison’s B2B now, to be shipped on September 1st.

Dealers can contact their local sales agent for more information.
