Q: 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.
by William Alvarez from California on July 15, 2015

A: 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.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Mike,

Would I be disapointed in getting an electric power wahser. Looking at karcher 2000 psi. I bought one from home depot once and it never worked. blew fuses or just wouldnet start. I need it to thoroughly clean my deck. Thanks. Todd Q.

by Todd from Texas on May 31, 2015

A: If gas is not an option this unit would be one of our top picks in the consumer electric line up.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: can you add more hose to the 5.540 and if so how much?
by Gene Bradshaw from Virginia on April 22, 2015

A: Yes, they do make a 25FT extension hose for that unit. I have attached a link for you to view that item.

Q: 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..

by Don from Missouri on May 19, 2014

A: 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.

Foamer

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 Brian, 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 Brian, 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: 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.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Hello, Is Karcher X Series 2000 PSI (Electric-Cold Water) Pressure Washer model 240 V. and also can You tell international shipping price to Armenia Yerevan
by Davit on October 01, 2011

A: No, the Karcher X series model runs off of 120 voltage.

Unfortunately we do not ship any products outside of the U.S. at all so I am unable to quote you a shipping cost.
by Brian, Product Expert

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: Where can I get a copy of the Karcher Model K2093 Manual ?

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 Brian, 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.

Thanks,

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 Brian, 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 Brian, 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.

I posted the product below that I am referring to:

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 Brian, 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 Brian, 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 Brian, 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.

Great Machine - Suction System Sucks Sometimes
Southern California Drought set me looking for PW system that would utilize my harvested rainwater. Karcher was the only system that boasted this feature.

X series machine looks well made and easy to service.

System works as advertised except for the suction hose accessory. (The whole reason I purchase this unit in the first place.) Priming the unit using the system's suction is a nightmare unless you learn the following tricks.

Potential To Be The Best....
Hello to all. I have been going back and forth with my search to upgrade my old electric PW. Main use would be for weekly house upkeep and washing my vehicle.

Originally started w/ a 1500psi and decided to "pull the trigger" and go w/ the K5 Premium 2000psi 1.4gm. Also I wanted something w/ a little more power in order to partake in a glorious foam party w/ a MTM hydro foamer for my car.

Leo,
We appreciate your thoughtful and thorough review! A couple wraps of Teflon pipe tape (at grocery & hardware stores for less than a dollar) around the inlet threads should stop any leaks- please also make sure there is a new hose gasket (about 25 cents anywhere hoses are sold) in the garden hose connector as well.

The wand should put out a full spray no matter where it is adjusted- unless it is not-quite clicked all the way into the low pressure/soap setting. If you still have a problem, please give the folks at Karcher a call at (800) 537-4129 so they can send you another spray wand under your Factory Warranty. Please also have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call- they will ask for it.

Karcher is the largest producer of pressure washers on the planet. With so many of their pressure washers sold it may seem as if there are a lot of issues, but based on the quantity of units they sell their failure rate is actually quite low. Karcher's Rapid Replacement warranty program resolves new unit issues quickly and with very little hassle.

When you call Karcher they should be happy with the serial number of your machine for general advice; you may need to get a copy of the sales receipt from the person that gave it to you if you need Warranty Service.

Great Pressure Washer With Many Features!
The Karcher X-Series 2000psi unit is a hard working electric pressure washer. The item was shipped in a well packaged box that came with easy instructions and was ready to go in about 10 minutes.

I plugged the unit in and accidentally hooked up the garden hose fitting backwards, so I quickly turned it around and it's worked great ever since.

I show in my video how I clean my enclosed cargo trailer, picnic, table, kids toys, and more.

Same Failure, Twice!
I bought one of these from this website and it worked great, for a while. Then out of no where it started making a surging sound when not being used and water was leaking from the bottom. I started the warranty process and it went very smooth. Since Karcher didn't ask for the old unit I took it apart and found some molded plastic had developed a hole causing it to leak.

I received the second one and again it worked as expected and the warranty process was smooth as silk, but last week the... more

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.

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.

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

Great Pressure Washer
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.

I have quite a bit of concrete to clean parking pad, long driveway, side walks and deck. With the gas washer I would spend 3-4 full days getting... more

Excellent Washer
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

It was perfect for residential use, cleaning driveways and sidewalks, siding and the patio. I purchased it June 24, 2012 and used it last summer and numerous times this year until the middle of July. I absolutely loved it... until water started gushing from it two weeks ago.

I apologize for the issues that you continue to have with the Karcher unit. Unfortunately this all needs to be directed toward the Karcher company. Please keep us in the loop on how they resolve the issue. If it is not done to your satisfactory, get back to me and I will get this over to our rep as well.
