5.0 out of 5 stars Compact but powerful, 27 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Kärcher K2 Compact Home Air-Cooled Pressure Washer (DIY & Tools)
Had been looking for a pressure washer for some time and didn't really need one of the bigger devices. The price and size of this product was ideal for me. After a couple of weeks of use I have to say I am really pleased with it. Paving stones and decking have all been freshened up and the moss etc was removed with ease.

The ability to use it for cleaning solutions (when washing the car) or patio/decking solutions (sample of which is provided) also helps. I used this to spray moss killer on to our roof. As you don't use the lances when spraying cleaner you won't damage the roof tiles but the pressure enables the whole roof to be covered.

Cleaning the car is pretty easy. Wet it first and get off any major dirt, then spray with cleaning solution and sponge down and then rinse off. Great results and easier to do than with a hose and or buckets of water.

One downside is the hose itself. This is quite a stiff hose (obviously to cope with the pressure) but that also makes it difficult to store the unit as it doesn't coil up that easily. I have ordered an extension hose which appears to make things easier. Other than that the unit is small and easy enough to store away when not in use. A longer power lead would have been nice but I suspect price may have something to do with that.

I did experience a problem where the device would just stop working. Waggling the input or outpu hose would get it working for a short while but it was a bit annoying. Filled in the online support form on the Karcher web site and didn't expect to hear anything and maybe an email if I was lucky. The next day I got a phone call asking me to try just running water through it without it switched on and to see if that helped. It appears air can get trapped in the internal reservoir. I tried this and so far seems to cure the problem when it does happen. I can only assume that there is air in the water supply that causes this every so often. So great customer service from Karcher.
