User reviews

I bought this as it was discounted and appeared to be a bargain.It is easy enough to use.I thought that the "full control" thing offered and easy way to moderate the pressure from the hand grip, but this is not the case. The display on the grip is just that ... a display.The foam lance which comes with it is very annoying and tends to let go of the shampoo bottle quite a lot.The pressure from the vario-lance is just about good enough to clean my car.After 11 months of ownership and around 12 uses, the machine will no longer switch-on. I contacted Amazon and they agreed to collect the item in return for a full refund. However, despite me contacting Amazon several times, no courier has yet come to collect the item, which is really annoying, as I need to replace the Karcher with something more reliable (Nilfisk - from a different, cheaper retailler)I spoke of my Karcher woes with someone I know in the car detailling industry and he informed me that apparently failures are common with Karchers around 1 year-old.So much for being a premium brand.... and so much for Amazon's premium customer service.
There are a few bits missing with this kit even though at first glance it seems to have a comprehensive amount of accessories. I bought this a few days ago and straight away I realised that to get the full benefit of the system, I'd need accessories, and lots of them.You see, the HOSE is just a tad short for moving around without having to go back and move the washer every couple of minutes, the floor cleaning LANCE is a tad short for other jobs (like the porch roof tiles). The ROTARY BRUSH doesn't allow angle adjustment, the SNOW FOAM HEAD doesn't allow flow rate control and the CONTAINER is too small. But all of these shortcomings can be addressed - at CONSIDERABLE cost - with Karcher branded accessories.Lance extensions, a larger snow foam lance w\ flow rate and fan adjustment, a 6 metre high pressure hose extension, a decent washing brush for the conservatory roof - which the extensions will help me get to, and a 180 degree Angle adjuster. Karcher see fit to include the cheapest accessories in their range, so if you really want FULL CONTROL you'll have to buy the components separately. The extra for me has been in the region of £150 on top of the initial £230 outlay, although most will find they only need to spend half what I did on extras.That said, I feel the washer itself is well made, and fairly hefty for a washer - just as well it has wheels! It works very well and hopefully it will last a good 5-10 years before it needs anything major replacing.5 stars, minus 1 for the cost of the (necessary) accessories that make it a serious bit of kit.
I used this quite a bit on the first day. Best electric pressure washer I have used. Power seems to be strong for its size. I cleaned patio slabs and footpaths with the attachement and it makes it exceptionally easy. Love how the hose reels up and everything is tucked away nice and tidy unlike some others.
