The Karcher WD 3 Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner wet & dry vacuum cleaner is powerful and energy-efficient with power consumption of only 1000 W.

The machine as well as the suction hose and the Clips floor nozzle are perfectly matched for the best cleaning results on dry, wet, fine or coarse dirt. The wet and dry vacuum cleaner impresses with its compact design and a robust 17 l plastic container, 4 metre cable, 2 metre suction hose and its fleece filter bag.

Thanks to the single-piece cartridge filter, it is possible to vacuum both wet and dry dirt without filter replacement. The blower function is useful for cleaning areas that are difficult to access. The hose is stored by hanging it on the vacuum cleaner head, thus saving space. The cable can be stored on the cable hook, tubes and floor nozzles at the bumper.

The “Pull & Push” locking system allows the simple opening and closing of the container. The handle of the vacuum cleaner can be removed and the accessories can be connected directly to the suction hose. Another clever design feature is that the accessories, tools or small parts can be placed out of the way on the vacuum cleaner head. The ergonomically shaped carrying handle enables comfortable transport.


Its robust and impact-resistant plastic container has a capacity of 17 litres. The cartridge filter enables convenient vacuuming of wet and dry dirt, without filter replacement. The new suction hose and – not to be forgotten – the newly developed clips floor nozzle with mixed insert contribute to optimal dirt pick-up and ensure perfect cleanliness.

The easily removable handle allows direct attachment of accessories to the suction hose. The practical parking position allows convenient parking of the suction tube and floor nozzle during working interruptions.

The Karcher WD 3 Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner makes light work of the toughest cleaning jobs with features such as blower function,
where vacuuming is not possible, the practical blower function can be used and ensures effortless dirt removal, e.g. from a gravel bed.

Other features are the “Pull & Push” locking system, ergonomic carrying handle and practical cable and accessory storage.

Our new multi-purpose vacuum cleaners are not only extremely powerful, but they also come with the benefit of very low energy use. Thanks to extremely efficient motors, we have considerably reduced consumption compared with previous models from 2010.

The performance of multi-purpose vacuum cleaners is expressed by the technical figure suction power (W). The higher this value, the more power a vacuum cleaner has. The suction power of a device is measured according to the standardised IEC 60312 method of measurement. It consists of the two parameters air flow (l/s) and vacuum (mbar).

The aim during development of the new Kärcher multi-purpose vacuum cleaners was to create extremely powerful vacuum cleaners with considerably more power than their predecessors from 2010. The better performance of the new WDs is based on new energy-efficient motors, floor nozzles and hoses redeveloped from scratch, optimal sealing of the device and the accessory connections, as well as a flow-optimised vacuum cleaner design.
