The Kranzle K1322TS Pressure Washer Story
Our Kranzle K1322 journey starts with fixing a problem that we all didn't know we had, but let's backtrack a bit and start at the beginning...
Matt embarked on the Kranzle journey with the K1122TST. This portable and robust unit boasts an impressive 1050 PSI and 2.0 GPM, making it a great mobile-friendly choice for washing his cars. However, despite its power, Matt found himself struggling with the hassle of dragging it out and dealing with tangled hoses and cords. As is often the case with using pressure washers, it's easy to overlook the challenges until you're already in the thick of it.

It wasn't long after that he started working on his wash bay project at his new home. He wanted a solution that was easy to use, ready to go, and with the same performance as his trusty K1122, without the hassle of messing with cords and hoses. He obsessed over the options and finally decided to go with the wall-mounted Kranzle K165STS (currently known today as the KWS700TS), which had an impressive flow rate of 2800 PSI and 2.8 GPM. However, it was expensive, weighed 180 lbs, and loud despite having a shroud.

Having to tear walls apart to add bracing and wiring and try and fail with many different parts but eventually created an incredible wash bay setup. The pressure washer had a 30-second delay, was somewhat noisy, and required a substantial investment, but Matt finally had his dream wash bay setup. However, he still faced one major challenge: How to package the solution in a way that would allow others to experience the same outstanding setup in their own home but without the $10,000 price tag.

After having sold hundreds of K1122TST pressure washers, he was still on the hunt for a great performing, cost-effective wall-mounted system that anybody could have in their own home. So he took a chance on the Kranzle K1622, a unit that had a flow rate of 1.7GPM and 1600 PSI. However, he noticed that it lacked the Total Stop (TS) function, which meant it would constantly stay running when you release the spray trigger, and the flow rate just wasn't that great compared to his portable Kranzle. This was a deal breaker...
Around 2016, After Obsessed Garage gained momentum with Kranzle sales, Matt discussed the possibility of creating his own machine with the Kranzle owners. He envisioned a wall-mounted unit that was high-flow, low-pressure, and low-cost, equipped with the Total Stop functionality.
He proposed using the pump from the K1122 and attaching it to the frame of K1622. He also requested that the unit not come with OEM Kranzle accessories to minimize cost and instead would be offering his own curated accessories sold on the Obsessed Garage website to make the perfect solution.
After this undertaking was greenlit by Kranzle, the Obsessed Garage Kranzle K1322TS came to life, changing the way we evaluate other pressure washers in the market. This model would go on generating 1010 PSI and 1.97 GPM, compared to the K1622, which produces 1000 PSI and 1.61 GPM.

Thrilled to finally have his own unit, he wasted no time in getting to work. After months of experimenting and obsessing, the Obsessed Garage Kranzle K1322TS Custom Install Solution was created, a wall-mount solution that included a hose reel, 100ft pressure hose, piping, fittings, and a deionized water system in a 1-click solution. The best part? It costs a fraction of what he had spent on his wash bay solution but with great performance!
Fast forward a couple of years, and after various upgrades, the Obsessed Garage Custom Install Solution has become very popular in the car detailing industry. Having the K1322TS on your wall has become a non-negotiable for those looking for a permanent wall-mounted solution. It is designed not only for commercial use but also for weekend warriors who want to wash their cars with high-quality equipment.
So we say goodbye to the hassle of dragging out the pressure washer, dealing with tangled cords and hoses, and the noise of the constant running pressure washer early in the morning. With the K1322TS, you can wash your car with ease and enjoy your Sunday mornings before heading out to a Cars & Coffee.
