Q: during winter -will this be damaged in any way I am talking about model k5.68. Is this a good choice for cedar siding and concrete and pavers?
by Bill from New Jersey on June 02, 2011

A: During the winter you would want to take this inside. The problem you can have is the pumps and other pieces on the machine freeze up and the washer would not work.

This would work fine on your pavers and the siding.

Thanks,

Q: What kind of detergent or other liquids such as ArmorAll be used in the Karcher model K5.68 pressure washer?
by DARYL HAMMOND from Ohio on April 30, 2011

A: I would only recommend detergents that are labeled as being "pressure washer safe". There are many different types and brands available. Any other type of chemical that is used in this machine could absolutely dry out the seals and o rings and cause the pump to leak or stop producing pressure.

Unfortunately we do not carry any type of ArmorAll chemical that is considered "pressure washer safe". I am posting a link below to all of the detergents we carry:

Q: Do you have any self priming pressure washers for sale (gas or electric) ? I have wood deck on my 1/2 acre pond to clean & would like to be able to use the pond water. Thankyou.
by John from Ohio on March 25, 2011

A: Yes, all Karcher branded pressure washers both the gas and electric versions have self priming pumps that can pull water from a standing source such as a tank or pond. We also sell Kranzle and DirtKiller brand pressure washers which too have self priming pumps. Kranzle and DirtKiller only offer professional grade pressure washers while Karcher offers residential and prosumer grade models.

I would definitely recommend that you use a filter on the end of the hose that is placed in the pond to prevent debris from entering the pump. Karcher makes a hose with filter for this purpose that we sell as an accessory.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: What happens when you use hot water in a Karcher electric power washer? I never knew they were (Electric-Cold Water) listed.
by Bob Mills from Michigan on March 25, 2011

A: Karcher's cold water pressure washers can accept water up to 104F degrees. This is common with all cold water pressure washers. Using water hotter than 104F degrees in a cold water pressure washer will definitely damage and wear away the seals in the pump, causing the pump to fail. This is the fastest way to damage a pump that is rated for "cold water".
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Just bought the Karcher 3.74 from you guys. What is the "Pump Guard" which is recommended for storing and protecting the pump? And how do I use such?
by Preben Jensen from California on March 24, 2011

A: The Karcher pump guard is a chemical that is designed to extend the life of the pump and the seals within. Pump guard or pump saver as it is also called, will lubricate the seals in the pump and also prevent any water that is left inside the pump from freezing during the colder months.

To use this product, you simply attach it to your garden hose water inlet fitting and turn the machine on for a few seconds. Once the chemical exits the outlet high pressure fitting, the pump is protected.

You should defintely run this chemical through the pump every time you are going to store your pressure washer away for extended periods of time such as over 30 days. You should also run this chemical through the pump periodically throughout the year to keep the seals moist.

Karcher Pressure Washer
I had to by 2 other pressure washers before I finally bought quality and not just price. This is the best pressure washer we ever owned and we don't regret buying it. The quality is excellent for our purposes and we can highly recommend it. German engineering?

Two Machines, Same Problem, No More Warranty
First machine broke, no pressure and leaks from base unit, after a couple of months, quick replacement but new machine has same leak problem now. No repair is possible and no replacement from Karcher!

Steve,
The terms of Karcher's Rapid Exchange Factory Warranty say "...any remaining time on your original warranty will be applied to your replacement pressure washer. For example, if you bought a pressure washer on January 1 with a one-year warranty and exchanged it with the Rapid Exchange Program on July 15, the replacement pressure washer would be covered until December 31, the expiration date of your original warranty."

Do Not Buy This Machine
I bought the Karcher Pressure washer because I got sucked in to the German engineering story… Turns out the engineering is c**p!

My requirements for a pressure washer are pretty light. Clean the pool deck, clean the deck furniture, and occasionally wash the car. I bought the machine a couple of years ago… the first one died within 6 months, with 4 or 5 uses. Karcher replaced that machine. It died within 8 months.

Karcher replaced that machine outside of their warranty period. That... more

Doug,
I understand your disappointment. Our experience with thousands of these units shows that their failure rate is still lower than the industry norm- and it's very unusual that all 3 units "died" prematurely.

Heat is the enemy of consumer electric washers- on hot days it's a good idea to let the unit cool off between tasks. Since you live in Miami you will need to be careful not to leave the unit running while you move cars or furniture- a small electric unit will overheat and fail prematurely, no matter which brand you buy. A unit with a water-cooled motor is a good choice for hot climates.

I'm impressed that Karcher replaced the second unit outside of the warranty period- they aren't obligated to do that. Usually the replacement unit is only covered for the rest of the original warranty.

Worst Purchase Ever
This is going to be a rant, so sorry in advance.

I did not buy this from PWD. I am actually here searching for a replacement for the k5.68 that has died on me for the final time, and this was a warranty replacement under the karcher exchange program for the first one i bought which only lasted 9 months before the pump seized and karcher wrote it off (they cut the plug off and junked it in a container full of dead karchers in the back of the repair shop... I should have known then that it was... more

My old Karcher 1300 PSI had more power and pressure than this one does. But it does the job I got it for.
Cons: No Place To Hang The Electric Cord On-board When Stored

Does a great job. The only thing I find frustrating is the handle to wind up the high pressure hose comes off to easy. Not hard to put back on though.

"Works great, I have had several Karcher electric pressure washers over the years. They have all given me very good service. Great for washing my vehicles, especially with the right angle under body attachment. It does a great job washing out salt & mud from under vehicles."

Don't Waste Your Money.
Plastic parts break easily. Cumbersome to use. It will tip over just by pulling the hose off the reel. Product has been nothing but trouble from day one. I wouldn't recommend to anyone. I have spent more time trying to repair it than using it. To bad I lost my receipt. I haven't even had it a year.

Better Than Expected
Used it on brick walkway encrusted with green algae, and the high pressure wand did a fabulous job of cleaning the bricks. The unit won't follow you, so if you are careful as you extend the hose to move it with you it won't fall over.

Overall, it seems like a good unit for average house cleaning jobs.

Used it to clean the brick patio, washed the garage floors, the driveway and were impressed with the ease of use and the results.

Would recommend it highly.

Very Disappointed
I am very disappointed- it is cheap plastic. The wheel fell off, the wand holder & cord holder broke, and it falls over when pulling hose out from the reel. The pressure Hose near the wand is ready to split.

I have owned Karcher products in the past and they were very well made & made to last. I thought the unit was made in Germany- not so, it's made in China. I will not waste my money on another one.

I have not used the unit a lot, I expected it to last longer. It's only a year... more
