The Karcher HDS 895S is a power steam washer that shoots a high-pressure stream of hot water and steam to clean decks, homes, driveways and other large surfaces. Only adults should operate it, as the steam can be very hot and may burn skin. Always wear gloves and other protective clothing.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Fill the water tank to the fill line and plug in the unit.

  2. 2

    Turn the power switch to "I" and set the temperature regulator to the desired temperature, typically between 30 to 90 degrees Celsius for hot water cleaning and 100 to 150 degrees Celsius for steam cleaning. Wait for the indicator light to illuminate.

  3. 3

    Adjust the high-pressure nozzle depending on the surface to be cleaned. A spray angle of 25 degrees is recommended for stubborn dirt, and 40 degrees for delicate surfaces. Stand at a good distance from the object to be cleaned.

  4. 4

    Press the trigger to spray the steam and water at the object. Turn the control spindle in a clockwise motion to increase the operating pressure. Turn it counterclockwise to reduce the water pressure.

  5. 5

    Set the unit switch to "0" when cleaning is complete, and shut off the water supply. Press the trigger to release any remaining water in the nozzle.
