Answer: 
I don't know what chemical cleaner you have so don't know. But I do know they absolutely do not want you to use in the machine is chlorine which I wished I could use. I have to spray that chemical on my mobile home first before cleaning. The cleaning products they recommend work pretty good.

Answer: 
A cleaner with the bleach will be a problem and will cause damage. As long as this solution is bleach free, it should be ok. You should however make sure that the solution is prepared for Pressure Washers.

Answer: 
Yes the K 3000 may be used to clean automobiles or trucks but you must read the Operator Manual first. It instructs to only use the Vario power spray wand because the high pressure wand may damage the vehicle finish. Be careful to use only detergent available for your Karcher product as other brands of detergent may cause damage to the pump and void the warranty

K 3.000 1,800 psi 1.3 GPM Electric Pressure Washer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 225.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It a nice little puppy I decided to buy a power pressure washer to clean my concrete floor patio and stucco walls. This is the 1st time I have cleaned the patio and the stucco walls since my house was remodeled 15 years ago. Plus, I have 2 dogs that pretty much are out dogs that sleeps and play on the patio. Surprise and amaze how powerful the Dirty Buster connector. Be careful not to point on your bare feet. This puppy is strong. It not only clean my concrete patio floor and stucco walls, but it remove some of the stucco paint off the wall. It's a good idea to keep the wand moving instead of keep it still while cleaning the stucco walls. For ease of use and the price... It a nice little puppy with a powerful bite.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pressure Washer I bought this pressure washer last year and used it maybe 4 times. It started acting strange like it was trying to turn on but would cycle off and on. It started leaking water from underneath the machine. For the price it should not have broken in such a short time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Assembly was easy and the instructions were complete. Have used it to clean my deck and it works really well.....no fuel required....and the 4 wheels make it easy to maneuver....and it's light weight makes it easy to transport. Very pleased with my purchase.
Date published: 2016-07-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm Assembly was a cinch. No problem. Took about three tries to get it to operate correctly. Just had to get used to (i) laying out the cord and hoses before getting started so everything is properly positioned, (ii) getting the nozzle to the hose/unit connected just right so it didn't leak and (iii) making sure to do all the steps in the right order for startup and shut down. Once I got all that down, it works like a charm. Once I got used to the hose connection, it did not leak at all. The coaster wheels fell off once, but snapped right back in place. Have had the unit for about a month and have set up and used about ten times. Works great. Doesn't have super duper high pressure, but good enough for my needs. Have used mostly for cleaning dirt out of rock before laying over weed cloth. Also for cleaning cars and windows. For the price, I got about what I expected and am satisfied. One thing I do worry about. The gun and spray wand are plastic, so I am VERY careful about where I set them down because it would be very easy to step on them and break them, making the whole shebang useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute and versatile I own the older version of this product. I had it for years. Didnt know how to care for it but it lasted years. Sadly I dont know how to repair the part that wore out so I bought this new version. It is a bit more powerful which is really nice and I can pull this where I want to go. I think that is a real plus. Because I already had one, putting it together was no big deal. I use to think this was a luxury to have but recently had to use on my truck and I was so glad I had one. You can clean everything with this and it uses less water than a hose. My UPS guy asked me for the old one, no problem. For me it was not in excellent shape but this new one is a dream.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed within 20 days. Well, besides reading other reviews about this pressure washer failing soon I decided to try it. First off it is not 1800 psi. Perhaps 1500 at most. My old 1600 had more pressure. But it did well in washing my decks and my siding. Yesterday I was going to wash the garage floor and the water line inside the body broke and water was just coming out of every hole in the body. Obviously it also shorted out the motor. Guess I will have to go back to my old Husky pressure washer which lasted 15 years. Don't buy. Now I have to figure out if Home Depot will stand behind it or if I have to hassle Karcher directly. From other reviews they are not easy to deal with. Move on,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful - so easy to use! The wheels were a little difficult to put on but the rest was easy and I love it. I'm a 74 year old woman and had no problem cleaning my deck and driveway.
