From the manufacturer
Kärcher K4 Premium Eco Home
The K4 Premium Eco Home Pressure Washer combines power and energy efficiency through its water-cooled induction motor resulting in exceptional performance and a longer life. The machine has an Eco switch so that you can reduce energy and water consumption by up to 20% in just one click.
It is supplied with a 6-metre phthalate-free hose which can always be neatly stored thanks to the practical built in reel, a premium quick connect gun, two lances suitable for a multitude of cleaning tasks, a T350 Patio Cleaner for fast, splash free cleaning of large surface areas and an Ecologic Universal detergent which can be applied to your cleaning task through Kärcher’s patented plug and clean detergent system. These accessories can be stored directly on the unit keeping them with reach at all times.
All Kärcher K4 Pressure washers can work using a static or harvested water source such as a water butt. Water can either be drawn into the machine through a standard hose connected to a water butt tap or using the suction hose and filter which can be purchased separately. The K4 Premium Eco Home is designed for a large variety of tasks including cleaning cars, bicycles, garden furniture, fences, patios and decking as well as medium to large sized areas around the home.
Long Life Water-Cooled Motor
A water-cooled motor enhances the performance and provides a long life, water is designed to go around the motor when the product is in use to cool the motor.
The water inlet filter is already built in the unit, this filter prevents debris entering and damaging the pump.
The Eco switch can reduce water and energy consumption by 20%.
All Kärcher pressure washers are designed with an automatic stop/start motor so the unit isn't continuously flowing during your cleaning application.

It's not stable enough to pull out the hose reel from any distance. The unit falls over! This is because the hose reel is situated on top of the washer thus rendering it quite unstable to movement. Therefore one hand is needed to hold it upright and one to try to pull out the hose.
Pulling out the hose is a problem in itself. The hose is coiled around the reel and as the hose is drawn out it recoils on itself on the ground. As the hose is narrow bore it can't be straightened simply by pulling as either the hose 'kinks' or the washer falls over.
There are two pressure wands included, one gives a cone shaped jet that could strip paint/rust off anything and could easily damage wood, the other is an adjustable pressure wans that is used for dispensing detergent as well as cleaning.
There is a handy cable tidy but this could have been improved with the addition of a place to keep the plug from swinging around.
Handy system for storing and dispensing detergent,
It does the job but manual intervention is needed on stubborn dirt..
Given its price it does not warrant the extra expense over bog standard models.
Update on this item. I have tried to use the 'built-in' detergent system but, although there is a graduated knob to control detergent concentration, there appears to be little use in selecting the lower detergent settings as there is no indication that any is actually coming through. Detergent did appear (in the form of some soap bubbles) on maximum setting but had little effect on the cleaning process as the pressure has to be on the lowest setting to use the detergent plus you use a huge amount of detergent. You're better off with the separate foamer attachment and a basic model of pressure washer.
The patio/driveway lance is awesome, you may have to go over it a couple times depending on how dug in the dirt is but you can't argue with the results, be warned once you start cleaning you probably won't want to stop, it does that good of a job.
I've used the eco mode a couple of times to get hot water pumping out, read the instructions before using it, it took me a couple of attempts to get it right, but once you've got it working it's brilliant, it really gives you a sense of how quickly you really use water although i'm not exactly using the eco function for the purpose it was made for
My only disappointment is that it is really easy to tip over, so be warned that if you pull a little to hard the whole unit will fall over
I did not try it immeadiatly as it was raining so contented myself with putting it together. Simply to follow instructions which took me about 20 minutes. We have about 40 metres of decking , 30 metrs of pebble dash concrete drive and about the same amount of crazy paving paths. The decking was pretty grubby and took me about an hour with the decking attachment, set at half pressure. round the edges I used the standard jet after trying the rotary jet which is very powerful and will lift the grain if you get it too close the variable jet is much kinder . The driv took about 3/4 of an hour again with the decking head at full power. Part of the drive was covered in moss wher the rotary jet soon shifted it. The crazy paving paths I attacked with the rotary as they were covered in moss and had not been properly cleaned for a couple of years. Shed wall and plants needed a gentle watering to wash off the mud that goes everywhere with this jet. Howerver carefule one is. I had no problems with the machine except it took a while for the cleaning fuild to arrive at the jet, when it did it really helped to shift the heavily soiled areas. I finally primed it by squeezing the bottle. Thjere really is no comparison with my 10 year old £50 washer ! Definitely worth the extra money if it lasts 10 years.
