This is the best wet/dry vacuum I have ever had the pleasure of operating.
Let me begin by saying I believe this unit to be the top-of-the-line and current state-of-the-art in the field of wet/dry vacuums for home use. This unit has all the bells and whistles the home owner could ever wish for in a wet/dry vac. The suction power is amazing, plus adjustable to fit the task at hand. The unit comes with two filters. The second filter is a cloth-like bag to be used only when picking up fine particles. The primary flat-fold filter is to be in-place at all times. This filter is well-designed and can be easily removed through an access door for a thorough cleaning without having to take the unit apart! (This filter may also be cleaned under running water!) There is also a button on top of unit you can push to automatically clean the filter if you notice a decrease in suction power while in use. This allows you to continue using the vac until you have time to properly clean the filter. There is also an AC receptacle built into the unit which allows you to plug in a power tool. If it is a wood working tool and has a sawdust exhaust port you can attach the vac’s suction hose to the tool’s exhaust port using a provided adapter. The vac will then turn On/Off automatically as you turn On/Off the wood working tool; an outstanding feature! All the accessories including the power cord are easily stored onboard the unit in their specifically designed positions; making for compact storage and transport. The wheels are of high quality allowing the unit to move in any direction with minimal effort on your part. The unit does have a few more features I have not addressed here, so you should take the time to carefully read the owner’s manual. Finally, and this is a minor point and not a performance feature, but I really like the unit’s yellow and black color scheme. It’s a real eye catcher. Several neighbors have already asked where I bought it. (See attached photographs.) This unit is so well built and designed I expect it to be the last wet/dry vac I will ever have to purchase. Well done KARCHER!

Wonderful!
I am so impressed with this wet/dry vac from Karcher. I used it to clean my filthy pool cover as it was on the pool. The suction was very easy to control---areas with little water, I just turned the suction down, areas with a lot of water I turned it up--It worked perfectly. The unit was easy to maneuver around, easy to set up and easy to empty. The holding tank holds a lot of water. When it's full, the suction changes letting you know you need to empty the tank, which you do by unlocking the lid. lifting it off, unplugging the hose, then carry the tank to wherever you're going to empty it. In spite of the volume of water it holds it was easy for me to carry and empty.The unit comes with a flat fold filter (use whether wet or dry vacuuming), a filter bag for dry vacuuming, 2 suction/extention tubes, a crevice nozzle, floor nozzle and an adapter to enable use with a power tool such as a jigsaw. And the unit can be used as a blower. So many great features. The only improvement I can think of ---if it's at all possible with wet/dry vacs, would be if a hose could be inserted into the unit so that it would drain as liquid is being suctioned up, eliminated the need of emptying. I'm sure after looking at the attached pictures, you will agree this is one great vac! Good job Karcher!

Very Cool Vacuum
This unit ships fully assembled less the five canister wheels and the accessory holder. Unlike my other wet / dry shop vacs this vacuum's filter is housed in the head, not in the dirt bin, and as such does not have to be removed prior to picking up liquids. This pleated filter should last a lifetime since it's easily accessible for daily cleaning without having to remove the vacuum head from the dirt collection bin and it's washable when needed. They also include one fleece filter bag which is not required but may be used when vacuuming extremely fine, dry material. The flexible hose is 7 ft. long, the power cord is about 16 ft. The unit, with accessories, weighs roughly 22 lbs. It ships with the standard accessories you'd expect. The swing-away carry handle locks the motor to the canister base. Like my other shop vacs it also has a reverse port to act as a blower. Features that are new to me and greatly appreciated include a self-cleaning filter function that doesn't require removal of the filter, variable speed motor and an electric outlet that automatically turns the vacuum On when the connected power tool is activated and OFF when the tool is shut off. Connect the hose to your sander or miter saw etc. with the included adapter, plug the tool into the vacuum and go to work. What a great time saver, not having to run back and forth to turn the vacuum On and Off. The unit rolls easily and has an abundance of power in the MAX position. This will definitely be the vacuum I take to the next job site. This product is warranted by Kärcher to be free of defects in workmanship and materials under normal use for a period of (2) years on parts and labor. Standard accessories and attachments are warranted for a period of three (3) months. A valid proof of purchase must be presented at time of warranty claim.

Awesome vacuum for the price...I like the fact that I can plug my Dewalt palm sander into the outlet and fires up the vacuum when I switch on the sander. The variable speed motor is handy as well! For a longer hose, I use my Vacumaid garage vac hose (30') which fits inside this vacuum. I highly recommend this shop vacuum!

My New Shop Vac
I purchased this vacuum to take the place of an older and bulkier shop vac. One of the features that attracted me to this model is the auto on/off when used with power tools. I was doing some construction in my finished basement and I did not want to have saw dust going all over the place. Using the bag kept the exhaust dust free. The WD 5 P kept dust to a minimum and made the rest of the clean up very easy. The on board tool storage and compact size makes storage a lot easier as well.

As a vac it is great! As a wet vac not so much the power is greatly reduced and not real happy with the overall performance

    Auto on/off vacuum =best deal
    Great low cost option for a shopvac that can work with a sander or saw plugged in for auto on and off. Not the most powerful suction, but good for the money.
