Product Overview

With the Karcher K 5 Premium Full Control Plus, you can effortlessly find the right pressure for every surface. The spray type is very easy to adjust by turning the 3-in-1 Multi-Jet spray lance. The pressure level can be checked using the LCD display on the spray gun and adjusted using the plus/buttons for maximum control. This means that it is not necessary to change the spray lance even when switching from high-pressure mode to detergent mode. In the event of short breaks, you can also easily stow the spray gun and spray lance. An extendable telescopic handle enables the device to be pulled along conveniently and stored so that it takes up less space. And the practical Plug 'n' Clean system means you can change the detergent in 1 quick and easy step, seeing the filling level at a glance. The pressure washer impresses further with a lower center of gravity and a practical hose guide, as well as a stand that lends the device greater stability and can also be used as a second carrying handle. The pressure washer is ideal for frequent use on stubborn dirt and for an area performance of 430 ft./hour.

Where is the K 5 Premium Full Control Plus 2100 made? I would prefer to buy American.

Asked by RG June 20, 2020

Answer

Hi RG, thank you for reaching out with your question! The K 5 Premium Full Control Plus is manufactured in our Karcher facility in Italy. I hope this helps, Karl from Customer Care.

What detergent do you use with this pressure washer?

Asked by LoriC21 May 31, 2020
1
Answer

Hello from Karcher and thank you for reaching out with your question! We recommend our Universal Pressure Washer Soap for use with this unit as the bottle is specifically designed for the Plug N Play detergent feature of the K 5 Premium Full Control Plus. This product can be found using part # 6.296-103.0 and is refillable after the first use, which means you can use the bottle with your favorite detergent as long as it does not contain corrosive properties (ex. ammonia or bleach). I hope this helps, Karl from Customer Care.

What is life expectancy of this model?

Asked by Alex April 8, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Alex, thank you so much for reaching out with your question. The K 5 Premium Full Control Plus does not have an hour rating, but it does have a powerful Water-Cooled Induction Motor which provides superior performance and a lifespan up to 5 times longer than most other motors, as its operating temperature is kept to a relatively low level by circulating cold water around the motor. This is a top of the line residential pressure washer that is designed to last as well as exceed your expectations. We stand behind this product with a 2 year warranty that includes RXP which is our trademarked Rapid Exchange Program™ which offers our consumers a new replacement of their Residential electric product for failures during the warranty period. The RXP program is streamlined to process and ship replacement electric products at no charge to the consumer’s residence as soon as possible. I hope this information helps. Happy cleaning, Karl from Customer Care.

Can I also use the attachments from Karcher Electric Pressure Washer K 2 Car Home Kit with this one?

Asked by Artist November 20, 2019
1
Answer

It likely depends on the attachment. I do know the wands between my K3 Karcher and K5 fit between both trigger guns. And the K5 instructions state to use the K5 set at maximum operating pressure and to adjust the pressure at the Karcher attachment its self.

I've used a smaller Ryobi power washer for years. It quit working this past Summer. The Karcher is a replacement for it. Wow, what a replacement! The hose reel is awesome! Storage for attachments is excellent! The quick connect feature for water is a bonus. Controlling the spray pattern and pressure is done at the nozzle. No more switching nozzle attachments the Ryobi required. There are some cons. Number One: the Karcher is MUCH heavier. It does have two wheels to help move it which is fine if you're on solid ground. Moving the power washer on uneven ground when I need to power wash the fence will be harder than it was with the smaller Ryobi. Number Two: there is no cleaning solution tank. Karcher sells their brand of cleaner which fits over a piercing nozzle for inflow of solution. I have almost two gallons of power washer cleaning solution; much more cost efficient to buy it that way. If there'd been an on-board solution tank, the Karcher would get 5 stars.

Great pressure washer for the average home owner, seems to be designed for ease of use. First of all it is electric, so no need for gas, oil, etc. Just plug in and go (although there is some initial assembly). The unit is relatively heavy, but rolls easily. I love the "hard, medium, soft" settings right on the handle (picture below) with diagrams to indicate where you might use each setting. The fact that you can quickly change the pressure, without changing nozzles, is a huge plus with this washer. The user manual also clearly details which settings to use in which circumstances which is perfect for a novice user. While the pressure is not as intense as some gas washers, I found this has all the power I need to clean the deck, siding, walkway, etc. One other plus - the design is relatively compact for a pressure washer which means less space to store away.

Great design and very easy to use. There is so much to love about this washer. I like that all the items can be stored on the washer and you can carry it all around without having to lug around multiple pieces. I like the wand that allows you to twist it for whatever nozzle you like. That part is a bit bulky but its convenient non-the-less. I like how you can adjust the pressure electronically, thats really slick. The whole unit is well thought out except for the extension cord part. I dont know how you are supposed to stuff the whole cord in this little pocket at the bottom. It can be done but its not very easy. All in all though the washer works great.

This is relatively light weight (~35 pounds) to move around and compact to store. Simple to use design. High pressure hose (25 feet long) and power cord (36 feet long) wit a built in GFI plug both store within the unit. Assembly manual out of the box is a bit Ikea-ish. The assembly text refers to a 15 pictures on a 5" x 8" page in the manual. Hint - the longer pair of self tapping screws attach the wheels, the 2 machine screws secure the handle, the other 4 are same length self tapping 2 for the lance storage and 2 to secure the 3" pegs that hold the base to the unit. The removable detergent bottle (if you need to use it) installs in the unit, easy to change / clean. I'll have to get one of the bottles for detergent in the spring. They plug into to the top of the main unit with a check valve, looks easy to change and refill. The control head on the lance is a radio link to the main unit to select options on detergent amount etc. and needs to be 'synced' the first time you use it. Hint - plug it in and hold the +/- buttons until the display shows the full display within 60 seconds of power applied. The head has 3 settings without changing parts, standard fan spray, round/rotary or detergent application. I've only used the conventional flat spray to clean off plastic chairs without detergent before winter storage. Pressure is more than sufficient for any of my needs. A couple of cautions: I highly recommend protective eye wear and boots as you will get wet. Start with the widest spray pattern at the lowest setting and see how it works, you can always crank it up. High pressure water can / will damage soft materials. Unroll the power cord and pressure hose fully, drain it (pump unit and hoses) before storage. Don't use hot water as the input source, it uses the input water to cool the pump. Several attachments are available for large area / quick operation.

I was impressed with the Karcher K-5 Premium Full Control Plus from the time I began to operate it. I experienced a little frustration with the assembly instructions trying to identify which screws went where. The process of elimination guided me and I completed the assembly without getting a whole lot of help from the instructions on the screws and all the other parts. Once I had completed a process, it became clear what the instructions and pictures were saying, but not before I figured it out. Our old pressure washer had various tips that had to be put on the end of the wand for different cleaning processes and pressures. They were easy to change but you had to shut down the washer and remove the pressure to make the change. The K-5 solves that problem. The different types of spray are available with just a twist of the spray handle. The remote control adjustable pressure is a phenomenal feature I have never heard of before. It allows me to adjust the pressure with a simple push of a button. After using this pressure washer on the front porch concrete and playing with it a little, I decided that this is the best pressure washer I have ever seen. The features that you don't even think about, such as automatic shut off of the pressure motor when the trigger is not depressed, overload protection in case the water pressure is too great, storage capability for the gun and lance, the built in detergent dispenser, and the built in hose reel for the high pressure hose, are things the I have never thought about having with my old washer. Now that I have seen and experienced them with the K-5, I have to wonder why they did not come with these options before. My old washer was a gas motor and I really like the electric motor better. One thing I will mention that is also a feature is the lower center of gravity. I have an upright compressor that may easily fall over. As I was using the K-5, I pulled on the high pressure hose to get more hose out. The washer did not even budge or look like it might turn over. The bottom line is this is a great residential and light duty pressure washer.

AMAZING!! This Karcher K5 Premium Full Control Plus Power Washer is so awesome! This machine can ALSO be used to VACUUM water....like I said, AMAZING! It is powerful and durable and of EXCELLENT quality! It is heavy duty and weighty and has wheels and 2 handles. This pressure washer will work on many different surfaces and has many different settings. You should hold the gun with 2 hands because it does have some kick to it. The booklet tells you which settings to use for which surfaces and contains much more very helpful information. I made a little video you can watch using the Dirt Blaster on my patio and the Flat spray on my wooden patio chair. After that I also washed my lounge chairs and they look brand new again. Just a few pieces to attach when you take it out of the box and you are on your way. It does not come with a detergent bottle, but so far, I have not needed detergent. I made the video using water only and will look into Karcher's soaps for things like washing the car, etc. I can't believe how FAST it cleans. I love this Karcher K5 power washer and am very grateful for it. It actually makes your work fun. Excellent pressure washer that gives Excellent results. Highest Recommendation!

A high tech pressure washer with significant electronic content. No need to change wands when switching between low pressure detergent application and high pressure cleaning. Just twist the 3-in-1 adjustable wand to select a rotary, flat, or detergent spray pattern. The wand is attached to a trigger gun with LCD display, and +/– buttons for adjusting pressure and detergent dosage. When user presses button to adjust pressure or dosage the trigger gun sends a radio frequency adjustment signal to the pump motor control. In effect, the trigger gun is a remote control. Gun needs to be electronically synced with motor control prior to first-time use, a simple procedure. Requires two AAA batteries. The manual contains illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions. Assembled sprayer is solidly built and well designed. There is a reel on the back for storage of the 25 foot high pressure hose. The telescoping handle extends for pulling washer to desired location and retracts for storage. The small footprint limits need for storage floor space—helpful in my crowded shed. Stabilizer at base helps to prevent tipping over and serves as a second handle for lifting. Power cord is 35 feet long with ground fault circuit interrupter located at plug end for safety. A quick connector makes it easy to attach/detach the water supply hose; consider purchasing a spare. This model uses disposable Kärcher Plug ‘n‘ Clean detergent dispensers that enable quick easy swapping but are not refillable. Refillable dispensers would be a worthwhile product improvement. Adding a stream of waste plastic to the environment is inconsistent with Kärcher web sites that proclaim commitment to sustainability. This pressure washer is effective and easy to use. It’s convenient to adjust spray and detergent flow without swapping nozzles. The product includes improvements based on feedback from users of earlier models. No problem with my sample; so far, so good. The main concern is a complicated design with many ways to fail: mechanical and electronic. Electronics that work well when new can become problematic after exposure to summer and winter temperatures. It’s too soon to assess reliability or the ability to obtain repairs. Two years warranty. Consider purchasing the HD 3-year service plan to extend protection. Made in Italy.

Saw this Karcher K 5 Premium Full Control Pressure Washer and had to get it. I've been wanting a pressure washer on wheels, makes it easy to move around. I like it has a hose reel for easy storage for the high pressure hose, adjustable pressure, adjustable wand, kink free hose, the plug in clean detergent is a great feature and maintenance-free. Just wish it had storage hanger for the electrical cord. Can't wait til spring to use it. I need to get the moss off the cement in front of the garage & off the bricks between the house and garage and get the semi solid gray colored stain off the front and back porch's it is chipping off, their a mess. Another Great Product from Karcher.

The Karcher Brand, K 5 Premium Full Control Plus 2000 PSI, 1.4 GPM (per Karcher) Electric Pressure Washer is a powerful, full featured pressure washer for all home owner care and maintenance of cars, RV’s and property cleaning needs. My 10-year old Karcher K3 pressure washer has been totally dependable for me meeting my cleaning needs, yet the power of this new K5 machine is totally awesome. I really like having all functions in a single wand, not having to change wands as cleaning needs vary. The ability to vary pressure and flow for all cleaning functions make this premium K5 machine truly versatile, possibly exceeding any other residential pressure washer on the market. This is a real time savings for me, especially for cleaning concrete surfaces. Some assembly is required, not too difficult for most folks, the assembly instructions could be clearer with greater detail as none of the three different screw types are clearly identified. This new K5 premium pressure washer uses Karcher “Plug ‘N’ Clean,” detergent and a sample is not included. I have ordered the “Plug ‘N’ Clean” detergent so it was not available at the time of my review. I like that this premium pressure washer has the power to clean stone and concrete, yet is adjustable to clean the most delicate surfaces too like automotive finishes and the fins of air conditioning coils.

Response from Karcher TeamMar 29, 2021
Hi Elvis,
You should definitely be getting a lot more power than a garden hose! Pressure washers do exchange gpm for psi, so the output will look a lot different than what comes out of a garden hose gun (low psi/high gpm), but the high psi of a pressure washer provides a much higher cleaning power. Check to make sure your water flow coming into the washer isn't restricted (kink in garden hose, debris in the inlet filter, etc), and make sure you hear the pressure washer running when the trigger is pulled. In addition, make sure the pressure is turned up on the control panel of the Full Control Plus trigger gun, and that your Variowand is not on the detergent setting. If you're still having issues with pressure, please call our customer support line at 800-537-4129. Thanks! karcher
