Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dabrew someone had their thinking cap on with this one.
I'll be brief. 1. Packaging....decent standard. 2. Assembly..... piece of cake. Take it back if you cant figure it out cause this is the easy part. 3. Function...... quiet, low water consumption without sacrificing power at the nozzle, fast, lightweight, finally a flexible hose. 4. and this is the big one for me as I have done a lot of power washing in the past........the pistol grip is a perfect size as to alleviate any stress and cramping in your hand. you can even use this washer one handed for many tasks that would require two hands. I absolutely love this washer so far.... I have put it through its paces and it has passed with flying colors. 5. this is the bad part........too much soft plastic...... as is common, these types of washers tend to fall over if you pull on them with the hose.....the plastic is easily scared and damaged. I would like to see more long term, higher density plastic or even all metal construction on wand and moving parts with fall over protection either by defensive bumpers or a kick stand of sorts. 6. of all the units I have used......... this is the best one so far..... Water cooled motor is first of its kind which will be proven over time. In short.....don't buy one of those stiff hard plastic hose units. Give this one a try.....you won't want to stop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dlc909 Better than our old one.
We were in the path of hurricane Sandy and everything stored in our basement and garage was destroyed. We needed a power washer to clean up the mess right away. My husband wanted a gas powered one because they were more powerful but I said I would never use it - too hard to start, etc. We got this model and he is perfectly happy with the power. I am happy because it is easy to use even though it's heavier than our old 1400psi unit.
The two nozzles that come with it are all we need and the detergent dispenser worked wonders on our outdoor furniture. We also like the long hose and long power cord. The only drawback is that the hose reel gets in the way of the attachment storage, although it is a nice feature to have.

Good little machine for home use. Like all lower cost machines it has a plastic tip to the wand which will wear out over time. I have had this machine for over 3 years but now the wand is worn out and I can't find a replacement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doris Love this product, best money ever spent!
Used it to unclog a sewer line that was totally blocked. It took only a few minutes to unblock the line and was flowing freely. Well worth the money and won't need to call a plumber ever again...saving money!! Had to purchase the additional drain line, but worth it! Going to use it to strip paint on my house this spring.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tazmania One of the better one out there
I am happy with my purchase. It does what it supposed to do. One of the best electric pressure washer out in the market. It is well constructed and put together nicely. You can see and feel the German quality and engineering.
1. However the plastic hose reel could have been better. In fact it is unnecessary and cause the hose to be tangled. The reel handle broke because it fell on its side. I believe in the new X series Karcher got rid of the hose reel.
2. I feel that 2000 PSI is not adequate if you have large patio or deck or if you want to take paint out. I would love to see a 2500 psi electric pressure washer from Karcher.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happymower Great pressure washer
Very powerful for an electrical pressure washer. The wands included are good quality. When using an electrical washer electrical cord must be managed in addition to the attached water hose. This can be tricky. The electrical cord length is sufficient but not over-long. Overall, I enjoy using it very much.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer This thing is SAD. I got better results out of my hose with a new nozzle on it.
This pressure washer has no "pressure" unless you are trying to move it then it either falls over or you have to drag it because the wheels are useless for the weight of this machine. I've never been so disappointed. A contractor was here, saw the lack of performance and suggested I buy a new one. I told him it was new. He went through it to make sure all was set up correctly and said.....you have to take this thing back. Now he knows what "not" to buy. I will return it and refrain from buying this brand in the future.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waldo Product doesn't last
I Bought one with high hopes but it broke internally within the warranty period. After some time and effort it was replaced. The replacement broke 3 months after the warranty was up and I had only used it about 5 times.. again an internal leak. I took it apart [nothing to lose] and found the leak but was unable to repair it. I could have rented a good one for what I invested.
