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

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 205 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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, August 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karsher Presssure washer I purchased this pressure washer after seeing it on TV, it looked like it was just the right one for him. Easy to put together, excellent features and he absolutely loves it. Washer the front walkway leading up to the front entrance, and what a great job, took all the dirt and mold off along with the flower bead bricks. We have had a lot of rain and it did lots of dirt. He is very happy with this system and since it's on wheels it makes it even easier. It has allot of accessories to make it even easier. So glad I purchased this model and brand August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean and clean the pressure washer was given to me as a gift .This was my first pressure washer . Putting it together and using it was very easy , and it cleaned the cement quick . August 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good purchase the wheels are hard to deal with and they come off so I guess I still don't have them right. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by K 3.000 1,800 PSI 1.3 GPM ELECTRIC PRESSURE WASHER Powerful yet portable. Small and lightweight and very easy to use. Sometimes hose to wand is a bit hard to disengage but I find it very useful and takes minutes to set up. July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Karcher power washer This product works easily, and is safe for most anyone to use. Although it is not highly powerful, i have used it to clean my patio and bricks in the house where some algae was building up. I'll be using it to clean the driveway, and will probably finish it over a few days. I have not used cleaning products with it yet, and didn't find it to be necessary. It's lightweight and easy to maneuver July 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE I only used this product one time and returned it for a Ryobi electric washer on sale for $159. The hose connecting to the spray wand sprung three leaks. It is clearly not the same quality as the Karcher washer I had previously for ten years. The Ryobi works well and I noticed that the hose connecting to the wand was of a stronger material. Home Depot gave me no problems with my return. June 24, 2016
