Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sb22 good unit
I have bought Karcher power washers before but they were cheaper & only lasted a few years. This one works much better, you can tell that it is more powerful. The spray is more focused, so I didn't get wet. It would be nice if there was a lock for the sprayer, so that you didn't need to keep squeezing it. It is a bit tippy when hooked up to the hose. It comes with a handy hose quick connector. I also found this unit heavier and bulky to move around, even with the wheels, however I am a small woman so I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem for most people. It did a really good job but wasn't too powerful, so no stones came out of the exposed aggregate. I like it and think it was a good value. I'll put it in the basement for the winter. They don't last and start leaking the next year if left in the shed, I guess the plastic insides can't take the cold. Hopefully this one will last longer than the others!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PWBS Cheap fittings and preassembled connection leak
The hose to pressure washer is cheap. In this case the issue is not hose to connection, it's the connection at the base of the unit. The top preassembled fitting leaks profusely therefore no pressure. I called the manufacturer and now have to take it a local pressure washing company for fixing or exchange. I think I will just return it to Home Depot and ask for my money back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Naturenutt Good pressure washer, BEST service!
This pressure washer works great.
Better built then ANYTHING else i've used (which is a lot).
There was a problem with the wand however Karcher replaced the part next day without question. Best customer service i've ever used, they really stand behind the product!
HD should carry this in-store, replace the garbage they sell now.

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.

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by RentalPropertyOwner Warning- Discontinued parts
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.
