Q: Can any of the Karcher series be use for jetting drains? If not, can you recommend a "best" make and model.
by Ken from California on February 13, 2014

A: These will not be able to perform exactly as a jetter will because it does not have a pulsating pump. The trigger gun will allow you to create a pulsation with the drain cleaner hose attachment I have provided a link to. This will use the bayonet fitting and attach into your spray gun.

Q: Can you tell me the Karcher K5.740`s box size(length,width,height) and weight?
I must send it to South Korea.

by Son on August 10, 2012

A: The dimensions for the packaging of model K5.740 are 24" L x 15 1/2" W x 16" H. The shipping weight of the package is 39 lbs.


by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Will The Karcher K5.740 accept universal nozzles? I have a "turbo" one that connected to my now "dead" gas power washer via a 1/4" QD socket. Will Karcher K5 accept after market nozzles or just the wands that come with it? Thanks.
by Mike on July 24, 2012

A: No, unfortunately the Karcher electric models will not accept nozzles that use a 1/4" quick connect plug. The Karcher K5.740 will only accept the Karcher brand wands and attachments due to the unique bayonet style fittings that are used.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I have a red cedar siding home and also many decks and porches that need to be done, We are looking at electric because we need to store it in our basement, Could you recomend the best washer for our jobs, We have never done this before ourselves.
by Cindy from New York on July 02, 2012

A: The Karcher X-Series is a good choice; their water-cooled motor is less prone to overheating than other electric models.

Please remember to break large tasks into smaller segments, especially with the record high temperatures around the country- you and your pressure washer will appreciate it.

Cedar is a soft wood; pressure washer spray is strong enough to gouge or raise the grain if you hold the sprayer too close to the wood.

Use a wide spray, stand back and test in an inconspicuous spot until you get the hang of it. Our article How To Revitalize Your Deck has some good tips, especially if you're using a deck cleaning detergent.

Q: does this unit shut off when you release the trigger?
by Juan on April 02, 2012

Q: Where is the K5.740 made? One of the reviews states it is NOT made in China. I can't seem to find more info for this model. However the info I did find on the similar model K5.540 states that it is indeed made in China.
Also, can the connector (not the quick disconnect) between garden hose and pressure washer be replace (by a metal part) by the user? I had problems with this in my last Karcher pressure washer (different model).
Thanks,
Kay

by Kay from California on October 11, 2011

A: This machine is NOT made in China, it is made in Italy for sure. As for the garden hose connection, yes you can definitely replace it with a brass connection kit. The garden hose quick connect kit we carry for this pressure washer is model 81K030SH.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: is KARCHER K5 700T300 SAME LIKE THIS ONE?
by ALLY on October 05, 2011

A: Yes it is the same machine but the K5 700 is the european version. I do not believe you can purchase this model in the U.S. Also, the 300 part of that model number means that the T300 surface cleaner is included with this pressure washer.

Q: Can the pressure be turned lower than 2000 PSI for applications that need lower pressure?

Are there any recommendations from keeping the PW from tipping forward as easily as the reviews indicate?

Do accesseries have a shipping charge?

by Janet Cowan from Minnesota on August 26, 2011

A: No, this model does not have an adjustable pressure regulator to lower the psi output. This unit does come wth an adjustable spray wand though that you can rotate to lower the psi output. The lowest you can adjust the wand down to is about 1600 psi. By doing this, you will also decrease the fan spray pattern width.

Q: Hi. I was looking at the Karcher pressure washers and noticed two models that seem to fit the bill... the k5.740 and the k5.540. What's the difference between the two? From the specs, they appear to be identical.
by John Dunn from Connecticut on July 28, 2011

A: These 2 machines are exactly the same except for the housing on the K5.740 is more rugged and heavy duty. The K5.540 is strictly designed for consumer usage. The pump and motor are exactly the same on these 2 models.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Some of the Karcher pressure washers are for industrial use?.... Ihave a car wash and I would like one of continuous use.
by MR. VALDEZ from California on June 17, 2011

A: If you are looking for a model for continuous use. You would want to be looking at Shark, this would be the commercial line of Karcher. Something like a CB-402007B would be better for what you are looking to do.

Q: Do electric pressure washers require any routine pump maintenance.
by Rex Hagen from Illinois on June 07, 2011

A: No, these are going to be maintenance free pumps. We do suggest you use a product called pump saver with this upon storage for the season. This helps keep the seels lubricated and winterizes the pump.

Q: I have a Karcher K5.740
The garden hose connector cracked and I cannot find the rreplacement piece
Its actually the water inlet with connector that needs replaced
Where can I find this part?

by Steven Drexler from Pennsylvania on April 30, 2011

A: If you are referring to the quick connect adapter that comes with this unit, you can always purchase a metal garden hose quick connect kit that would be more durable. Unfortunately we do not carry the exact replacement adapter from Karcher.

If you are referring to the actual threaded water inlet that is attached to the machine, unfortunately we do not carry that type of part for this model pressure washer. If that is the part you are referring to, please visit www.pressureparts.com . They will more than likely have what you are looking for but there is a chance that part cannot be replaced.

If the garden hose quick connect adapter is what needs to be replaced, I am posting a link below to a product that would be compatible.

Q: I just purchased a Karcher K5.740. I can't seem to verify if this model has an upstream or downstream detergent injector. Would anyone happen to know?
by Daren from Tennessee on April 17, 2011

A: This model uses a detergent tank for the chemical injection. This would not be considered an upstream injection. The type of injection this model uses is more of a downstream injection because it pulls detergent through a siphon hose from the tank. However, a true downstream would apply the detergent at the end of the spray wand and would allow you to use any chemical you wanted. You can only spray detergent at low pressure with this model which is also why this injection is not considered upstream. However, I would still recommend that you only use pressure washer safe detergent such as Karcher's soap packs.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Can an extension cord be used or is it limited to the 25 foot power cord it comes with? How will this unit work for cleaning of a ski boat?
by Jeff from Idaho on April 04, 2011

A: Using an extension cord is not recommended with electric pressure washers. However, if the situation requires you to do so, you can use a 25' cord as long as it is an outdoor rated 14 gauge cord. You may increase the extension cord length up to 50' but then you have to increase the size of the cord to a 12 gauge cord.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Comparing the different Karcher models, I still have the same 2 basic questions.1) Does motor shut off with the trigger wand? and 2) where the water hose connects is it metal or plastic and is a kit needed to covert it to metal?
by Judy Averhart from Mississippi on March 27, 2011

A: Yes all Karcher electric models have the total stop feature when you release the trigger gun. Some of the Karcher models have brass water inlet fittings and some models have plastic. This specific model has plastic garden hose fittings and comes with a plastic quick connect attachment to prevent the user from cross threading the threads. To convert the fittings to plastic, you would have to purchase a brass garden hose quick connect kit.

Q: Do you have any self priming pressure washers for sale (gas or electric) ? I have wood deck on my 3/4 acre pond to clean & would like to be able to use the pond water. Thank you
by Mat from Virginia on March 27, 2011

A: Yes we carry 3 different brands with this feature. All Karcher, Kranzle, and Dirtkiller branded pressure washers (both gas and electric) have self priming pumps that have the capability of pulling water from a standing source such as a pond or tank.
by Mike, Product Expert
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.

Pressure Washers Direct Recommended

Heat build-up is the enemy of electric pressure washers, so Karcher has developed a water cooled motor that runs quieter and lasts longer than previous models.

They've also introduced a pump that uses corrosion resistant polymer in a swash plate instead of their usual axial cam, so it will out perform and last longer than earlier models.

A hose reel that can be used while the unit is running (instead of just for storage) and a Dirtblaster turbo nozzle round out a complete cleaning package... more

Runs Very Cool
This a good mid-size pressure washer for things around the house. The one thing that really got me interested was the water cooled designed motor.

I had borrowed another electrical pressure washer in the past and running it for long periods of time would cause a lot of heat. The Karcher's motor runs very cool. I see that as longevity.

The only problem I have and others reviewers had stated the same is that the garden hose adapter is poor. I had the hose pop off on a couple of... more

Works, But Leaks Unless You're Careful
Don't know exactly what led me on the Internet to choose this company. In retrospect another vendor would have been a lot cheaper. When I called, after a long wait, a guy who specializes in chain saws answered the phone. I guess I was so wanting a power washing machine that weighed less than 90 pounds to clean the pool deck that I bought it.

Does the machine work? Yes. Does the machine leak as every review states? Yes it does, unless you hook the hose up carefully.

Jeff,
We apologize for the inconvenience! We have let the folks at Karcher know about the leaking problem, and that teflon plumber's tape helps, but doesn't solve, the problem. Karcher is the largest manufacturer of pressure washers in the world, so it will take some time for a model change to make it to market.

We want our customers to have the best experience possible- please accept our apologies for not receiving friendly, professional service. More customer service reps are currently in training which will help reduce telephone wait times.

Good Washer, Bad Adaptor
On first use, adaptor for attaching garden broke. See photo. I love the washer, but go ahead & buy a good adaptor to go with it.

I was 45 minutes from the hardware store & wasted 1.5 hrs replacing the adaptor. Washer is nice- no stopping to refill the gas tank.

Good pressure & results.

Plastic Hose Connector Sucks
I bought this unit to wash cars, only on my first day I had two cars to wash the plastic hose connector did fine on the first wash but on my second car I happened to pull on my hose for some needed slack to rinse off soap it ended tipping the unit forward and snapping my connector half way through rinsing the car.

I had to hurry and run back to the washer to shut it off and shut the water. I had to rinse the rest of the car the traditional way after so I ended up running to the local... more

Felix,
There is a knack to working with the power cable and hoses on a pressure washer- finding a good central location for the washer and picking up the hoses instead of dragging them will keep them from kinking, getting caught under the car tires, or as you found out, tipping over the pressure washer body and damaging the connections.

Quick connectors are also a great idea to avoid wear and tear on both the hose threads and your knuckles.

Bought a Karcher and heard good things about their warranty. Short story is....Broken straight out of the box, been 8 weeks and still waiting for repairs to be done to a NEW unit because Karcher will not exchange it for me. On top of that just got a phone call stating a few more weeks and I would have to pay for some of the parts because they fell out of the 90 day and are not covered in the year warranty.....They are UNUSED parts on a BRAND NEW unit out of the box.

Jeff,
I checked our files and didn't find a listing for you- it seems like you didn't buy it from us so I'm sorry- there's not much we can do to help you.

No company's Factory Warranty will cover shipping damage- that is the responsibility of the company that transported the unit to you. On our website under the Returns link at the bottom, we list how to deal with a damaged shipment. The window to report shipping damage is fairly short, so we also include the instructions on our customer's ship notices.

Karcher has been very helpful to us when we call and ask for help on our customer's behalf- we've been able to arrange replacements in a fairly short period of time as long as the unit is within the warranty period.

You may want to ask to speak with a supervisor at Karcher, and be prepared to send them a copy of your invoice, the dates of your calls, and pictures of the damage if you have them. If you reported the problems in a timely fashion you should not be penalized for the amount of time they have been working on your claim.

First of all, I have purchased several pressure washers (including a gas/Honda Karcher) from Pressure Washers Direct. So when I decided to buy an electric PW I did so through them. I can't say enough about their customer service!

The issues I have now are about the durability of this Karcher model. I purchased this model Sept 2013. After only 10 hours of use, water poured out of the bottom of the unit and it lost pressure.

As others have noted, there was seepage where the garden hose connects to the sprayer - even with teflon tape added (which shouldn't be needed anyway). I didn't like the look of the supplied garden hose style washer, and replaced it with one of my own (you should actually use a washing machine type hose washer with the wire screen cone built in) - viola!! no more leak.

I also cemented the arm that holds the electric cord in place during storage, as the arm tended to slip down, allowing the... more

I'm a 77 year old female whose strength is diminishing but who still likes clean concrete!!!

After using a 3000 PSI gas pressure washer for several years, struggling each time to get it started, always heavy to move it around I found the Karcher washer so easy to use. It does a comparable job to the gas washer but OH so much easier.

Was Not Satisfied
I was disappointed when it did not work. Then I was told to take it to an authorized dealer and was stalled on service for a week.

Then he said there was nothing wrong, could have been an air bubble and then he said I was not going to be charged because
there was nothing wrong.

I just finished using it and I think maybe I should have checked it out more before buying it. It's really tedious for a what I need it or in other words, I didn't expect to work so hard.
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
John,
Step 6 on Page 10 of your Owner's Manual says "Unlock the trigger gun safety lock. Trigger the gun to eliminate trapped air, wait for a steady flow of water to emerge from the spray nozzle." That's the air bubble the service tech was talking about- you're fortunate that they didn't charge you for their time!

Karcher has many different accessories that may help you get the job done faster. Just click on the Attachments tab to see if any will work for you.

You may find it helpful to read through the "How To Pick The Perfect Pressure Washer" article that is front and center on our home page. It will help you determine which is the best tool for the job you want to do.

You may also want to check and make sure your garden hose is at least 1/2" or 5/8" in diameter, and not longer than 30 feet. If the hose is too long or too small, not enough water will get to the pressure washer and it won't clean as quickly as it should.
