Hi Mike - I have a cedar shingled house that could use some good cleaning (has been on for about 6 years). I also have a long redwood fence that I want to clean well before staining/sealing. Will an electric pressure washer would you recommend to do both jobs.

Answer
Yes, 2000 PSI would be the perfect amount of PSI for those tasks. You do not want to go to much higher or you could damage those surfaces permanently. I would not hesitate to recommend this Karcher unit for your task at hand.

Hey Mike, I'm looking at this Karcher "X" series 2000 psi electric P.W. and want to know if it has high pressure soap injection. I have a 3000 psi Honda and the soap injection is low pressure injected which makes for a poor car wash cleaner.. Thank you sir..

Answer
No this unit has to be set to low pressure just like most other washers. The low pressure is what allows the suction tube to create a vacuum and draw detergents. With that being said, they do make a foamer for this unit that is perfect for washing cars. It will attach to the end of the wand and dispense a thick foam. I have attached a link for you to view that item.

Can any of the Karcher series be use for jetting drains? If not, can you recommend a "best" make and model.
Ken 
from California 
February 13, 2014
Read Response +
Answer
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.

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.

Answer
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.

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.
Cindy

Answer
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.

Answer
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.

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?
Janet Cowan

Answer
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.

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.

Answer
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.

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.

Do electric pressure washers require any routine pump maintenance.
Rex Hagen

Answer
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.

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?
Steven Drexler

Answer
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.

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?
Daren 
from Tennessee 
April 17, 2011
Read Response +
Answer
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.

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?
Jeff  
from Idaho 
April 04, 2011
Read Response +
Answer
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.

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?
Judy Averhart

Answer
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.

I posted the product below that I am referring to:

Answer
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.

What happens when you use hot water in a Karcher electric power washer? I never knew they were (Electric-Cold Water) listed.
Bob Mills 
from Michigan 
March 25, 2011
Read Response +
Answer
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".

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?
Preben Jensen 
from California 
March 24, 2011
Read Response +
Answer
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.
