I am using a good quality rubber hose instead of the nylon type. One reason is that it is easier to coil and more durable.

I had never thought of doing this so I tried it. The water sprays in a flat pattern with less than 1800 psi pressure. Apparently the wands have a smaller aperture that provides more resistance to get the high pressure spray. They also give you control of the spray pattern.

where the water goes into the pressure washer is it brass or plastic? I had 2 with plastic and t...

Water inlet is plastic male hose fitting. Follow manufacturer's instructions and use the provided pair of plastic quick-connect hose fittings. Repeatedly screwing on and removing of a metal garden hose (or metal quick-connect) fitting on a non-replaceable plastic fitting built into the machine is a recipe for ultimate failure and leaking. Karcher provides the parts to do this right and to provide a long service life. If you lose their fittings please take the time buy PLASTIC replacements. You'll be happier in the long haul.

how big is the detergent tank?

Customer review from karcherresidential.com logo
Got this for Fathers Day last year and was really happy with it until it started leaking this year and wouldn't maintain pressure. Checked on You tube and there are lots of folks offering instructions on how to fix common issues with this particular brand. Karcher doesn't sell replacement parts on their site and to fix it is roughly about the price of buying a new one. Where does it break? Around the plastic assembly that bolts on to the main pump. Stored in doors and used seldom, I should have just rented one. :(

This replaces a much more powerful gasoline-powered unit that I actually didn't need. The "Follow Me" mobility character is a big plus. Super quiet. Both wands are performers. The Dirtblaster rotary spray wand amplifies the power so be careful on soft woods and masonry. Test first. I heard rumors at HD that customers have trouble installing the swivel casters. Put the machine on its side on a table, press against your stomach and with a soft wood block and hammer tap the stem into the hole. Keep the driving force on center line with the stem of the caster. See photo. Even easier with two people. I love showing off "winners" like this tool to my friends and neighbors.

Customer review from karcherresidential.com logo
After borrowing my Brother-in-Law's gas powered pressure washer, I started looking into electric models. The gas powered unit worked very well as expected but I was very annoyed by the noise level. After reading several reviews I decided to give the Follow Me a shot. I was a little skeptical of the power it would have but after first use I am very impressed. I cleaned my dogs concrete kennel pad and his dogloo and the Follow Me did an amazing job! My wife helped out and she liked using it as well. We are very pleased with the Follow Me and am convinced it will tackle any job around the house.

So Easty To Use!!!!!
Customer review from karcherresidential.com logo
I finally had the time to power wash my 2 ugly sheds in the backyard. It was a breeze. The sheds have been there for over 10 years. I was able to clean the roof, the inside and outside of the shed with ease. Both roofs were caked in mud, old leaves and fallen branches. Now I have more time to repair and paint. I am 5ft and a very active 62 year old with energy to burn. I was so happy that I cleaned our walk way and my truck. This was so much fun to use. Thank you so much.

Oh My Goodness!!!
Customer review from karcherresidential.com logo
Everyone needs one of these pressure washers! I saw this on TV and begged my husband all day to let me order it. I finally wore him down. It came in just a few days and let me tell you-I have become a power washing maniac!! If you're thinking this is hard to operate, let me tell you it's not. I'm 60 years old and it was the easiest thing ever to use. Day one, I did my house,windows,deck,porch, sidewalk and my car. It is easy to use and I couldn't believe how powerful it was. I had no idea my sidewalk was the pretty color stone it was (see photo)! My house looked like it had just been painted and my white car had never been so clean. If you are having any doubts about buying this, stop doubting and just do it. I seriously wish I could do an infomercial for Karcher. I could sell these things in no time!! Even my husband, who is skeptical about most things, was so impressed. He and I were fighting over it and kept taking it away from each other. I find myself looking for things to pressure wash. A couple of things you will need to know. First, the add-ons came separately a day after the washer came so don't be concerned that they weren't included. When you turn it on, it won't make noise until you pull the trigger. At first I thought it wasn't working because I figured if you plug it in it should run. Read the instructions on which wand to use. I didn't do that and used the Dirt Blaster Wand on my deck and it was definitely to strong for the deck wood. Lastly, the cord tends to get twisted (think old school telephone cord). It may have been due to the way I was twisting and turning but even twisted the cord is long and you can go far with it. I hope you order one and love it as much as I do!

Hi, thanks for sharing your comments and especially the photo, it looks like you are quickly becoming a pressure washer power user! It probably won't be long until your neighbors are asking for a little help with their cleaning as well. :) Thanks again for sharing!

Customer review from karcherresidential.com logo
I have been telling my husband that I would paint the fence every summer for the last 5 years. It has become a running joke between us to see what I will do anything to keep from painting. When I saw the K3 Follow Me advertised on TV a few weeks ago I immediately thought that this would finally be my chance to complete the daunting task of painting the fence. The part of this that I dread the most was the power washing. After researching other pressure washers, I finally broke down and purchased it. Right out of the box, it was an amazingly efficient and user friendly machine. Even without painting or sealing, the fence looks brand new. I am enclosing a photo showing the before and after. It only took me a few hours to completely prep the fence and I am now ready to pick the paint and start painting.

I got this pressure washer mainly t remove moss on our brick wall, but will also use it to wash our motorcycles after some dirt riding. I was actually positively surprised by the power of the rotating nozzle! It had absolutely no problem to remove the moss from our brick wall. This nozzle is certainly not to be used to wash a car or bike, or only from a distance as it might otherwise cause some damage. The chemical tank and mixing nozzle is a great feature and might come in handy for washing the car or bike. The cord ha a good length and I appreciate that it is equipped with a GFCI for safety since one is working with water and electricity. The only downside is that the nozzle holder only holds the not used nozzle in place when the hose is also placed on top. If you are using the hose and one nozzle the other nozzle will just fall off. All in all a great little device.

This is a very nice & powerful residential pressure washer. This product is obviously for residential use and would not be suitable for professionals looking for a pro grade super powerful washer. Assembly: - I had no issues with assembly. It takes less than 10min if you follow the instructions. The only tricky part is installing the front wheels as it can be difficult to apply force and get them to "click" into position. Use both hands and you should be fine. Design: - The unit looks cool and is practical to use. - The 4-wheel design is great as it follows you around, and can maneuver around objects with ease. - Storage is not as easy as an upright model. Its footprint is very reasonable so unless you have very limited storage space you should be fine. - The ON/OFF switch is conveniently located on top of the unit and has a solid feel. - The garden hose connects to the back of the unit, as does the power cable, whereas the high pressure hose connects to the front, which makes for a great design for maneuverability purpose. - The detergent tank is easily accessible from the front of the unit. Power/Strength/Noise: - 1800PSI is very good pressure for residential use. - It is great for washing cars and cleaning stuff like patio furniture. - It can also be used for cleaning a concrete driveway but expect the process to take time. It obviously cannot match the power of pro grade gas-powered units. - It is somewhat noisy, but I would expect that. I did not really have issues with the noise it produced as I washed my car, but my wife said she could hear it in our bedroom upstairs. Features: - The two provided wands work really well. - The main wand allows you to adjust the pressure from Min to Max, and also allows mixing with detergent using the Mix setting (mixes on low pressure mode only). You cannot adjust the shape/type of the stream. - The dirtblaster wand is not adjustable at all. - The main unit has an ON/OFF switch and no other controls, which is great since you basically switch it ON and control the pressure from the wand without going back to the main unit. - I have no problem with mixing the detergent on low pressure mode only. I mainly use this unit for washing my car, and I prefer soaking the car with soap first, and then cleaning it at high pressure. All this is controlled through the wand and without going back to the main unit. Pictures: - I posted a few pictures of the assembled unit, the main pressure wand, and the detergent tank. I forgot to take a picture of the dirtblaster wand though. Recommended product.

good unit
Customer review from kaercher.com logo
So far, so good. I am happy with the performance of the K 3. I had a Karcher power washer before and it was a very good unit. I like the K 3 follow me because it is easy to carry down to my basement for storage in winter. The other Karcher I had before was awkward to carry so I am happy with this. Has adequate power for my household needs.
