Q: Where do you add the soap for car washing with the brush?

by Kenneth Lucas from Florida on October 05, 2015

A: The soap would go into the on-board detergent tank in the pressure washer. You would spray soap onto the car, turn off the pressure washer (so it does not overheat the pump) and then use the bushes with your hand. None of the brushes included with this kit actually dispense soap. I have included links to the brushes that will dispense soap with this pressure washer if you are interested. You would still add the detergent to the on board detergent tank on the pressure washer.

Q: The distance from my water sourse to my car is 48'. But hose length for model k2.27cck is 15' . What do i need to do ?
Thanks

by Anonymous on January 11, 2012

A: For your situation, the best option would be to use a 50' garden hose to supply the machine. I do not suggest that you use longer than a 50' garden hose though or you will "starve" the pump.

On the high pressure hose side, you could also purchase a 25' extension hose to give you the additional reach if needed. I am posting a link to that hose below:

Q: With the"vario power spray" can I lower the pessure for more gentle washing?
by Mark from Wisconsin on October 17, 2011

A: You cannot significantly adjust the pressure of this machine by adjusting the variable spray nozzle. The max psi rating of this machine is 1600 psi when spraying with a zero degree spray pattern. If you adjust this wand to a full fan spray pattern, you will lower the psi by about 200-300 psi.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Can this pressure washer draw from a source, like a bucket of water? If so, could you explain briefly how it's done?
by Jeff from California on September 28, 2011

A: Yes, all Karcher models are able to pull water from a standing source such as a tank or bucket. You will have to purchase Karcher's suction hose along with the necessary adapter in order to properly pull water in this way. I am posting links below to the suction hose and adapter that is needed. If you look at the specs tab for the suction hose, you can pull up an instruction sheet on how to pull water from a standing source.

Very Good Deal
The only complaint I have is the picture is misleading on the web site. It clearly shows a car brush attachment (with water coming through). What you get is a tire brush, wheel brush, sponge and soap.

Still the machine works as advertised, is light and can handle any casual tasks around a property.

Very happy.

James,
Please accept our apologies- while the main picture of K2.27CCK shows the correct accessories and the Features list them properly, it was one of the additional product pictures from Karcher that was incorrect. That picture has been removed from the page.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any confusion.

Quick Failure; Rapid Exchange
Nice and portable. Unit lost its power within a short time of use. I am expecting a replacement through Karcher's "Rapid Exchange Program" any day now. I 'll see how that works out and let you know.

Just What I Needed!
Needed a weekend pressure washer that would not take the skin off your body. 1600 psi is perfect for cleaning decks and siding. Easy to operate.

Try This For Quick Job!
After buying this machine I got right to work on my house (the car will come later).

I set it up and with ease cleaned the bottom half of my home (I ordered the extensions !) I will get back to the top as soon as they arrive.

After I got mine everyone else on the street went and got a bigger one with a gas engine, but I like my machine and I plan to continue using it for as long as I can.

It was a very good investment.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Price, Features
Cons: It Should Come With Extentions

Very Good Small Pressure Washer
I purchased it specifically for cleaning projects to draw water from a 5 gal. bucket (standing water source) and not a garden hose.

It does a great job, and I'm very happy with this product.

Pressure Washing Is Current Favorite Passtime
Using this machine is my new favorite passtime! I love the auto nozzle and have washed all 3 of our vehicles with it - it is so much easier and quicker than using a hose...a nd it does a better job!

My husband passed away in December 2012. Since then, I have had to learn how to use many tools and equipment in order to maintain our property here in FL. We didn't own a pressure washer - Mel preferred to rent one when needed.

I decided to purchase this one online - and I am so glad I... more

Does The Job!
This pressure washer exceeded my expectations in regards to its cleaning ability. It does an excellent job at everything but cement sidewalk and driveway. It may do a better job on this if I use it more often which I will since it is so easy to setup and use.

I had a gas powered for years and it just didn't give good enough results to make it worth dragging it out of storage. I did have a problem with the GFI outlet on the washer but replaced it myself and I'm back in business.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Cordhose Management

James,
If your cement is badly stained you may want to try a pressure washer-safe Concrete Detergent.

Follow the directions, and let it work for a bit without letting it dry. It will help float the stain to the surface where you can rinse it away.

Wow!
I bought a new place that has about 800 + sq ft of deck area that had not been cleaned in ages. The wood was shades of grey to black.

This tool cleaned it well and, for a 69 year old woman, was very easy to use. The deck is now brown and you can see the wood grain. It is beautiful.

I am still amazed.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
