Q: Do you know if Karcher will be bringing the K5 Premium Full Control to the USA any time soon?
by Shaun from Massachusetts on July 06, 2016

A: That's a nice set-up! I checked with our contact at Karcher, and he wasn't able to get me any details about the Full Control package coming to the US at this time.

New product lines are usually introduced around February for the Spring cleaning season- I'll keep an eye out for them.

Q: What's the difference between K5 Premium and K5.740? They are both the same price. Which one would you recommend?
by Alona from California on May 08, 2016

A: The Karcher K5Priemium is the new model this year. The unit has a large foot on the front of it to prevent it from tipping over. That was the only changes they made. In my opinion, Karcher makes some of the best consumer grade electric in the industry and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Also, the K5Premium has a 2 year warranty instead of a 1 year warranty on the K5.740 unit,

Good Product - Good Execution
This product was easy to assemble and works well. If I were the designer I would have improved the cord storage (added another crank or at least a place to spool the cord). The cord must be manually would into a loop and then it hangs on the side of the washer. That is not a big deal except that it wants to kink while winding.

The wand hose has a spool to wind it. With all considered it is as good as it can be with the light weight of the washer.

Performance is excellent. When there is... more

Would Never Purchase From Here Again
When I called the 800 number provided was rerouted again and again. Finally the last guy said you need to call this number and proceeded to give me number I called!!

Told to take it to a location to be checked where they wanted to charge me $40 for checking the brand new pressure washer. No satisfaction, just a big run around. They couldn't be too well made as one person at the 800 number was going to send a new washer out and didn't want the one back they had just sent. Never again!
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Expensive
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Nancy,
I am so sorry you had such a hard time with your Karcher pressure washer! The notes on your file say that "it just wavers, it doesn't work", and that Karcher told you to reset it- which sounds like they wanted you to push the button on the GFCI (the boxy plug that goes into the outlet and protects you from electric shocks).

I also see from your file that we initially gave you the repair information meant for Karcher's gas units, not the electric ones- and again, I offer my apologies. Small electric units are no longer repaired; they are part of Karcher's Rapid Exchange program where Karcher swaps them out as quickly as possible. The quality of the units is excellent- it's local small electric appliance repair that is a disappearing skill.

Since you had been through so much already our Post Sales team emailed you yesterday asking you to peel off the label and send it to us with your RMA number so we can credit your account. This is much easier and more cost-effective than returning the entire unit, and will allow us to keep our books straight. If you need us to re-send the information please feel free to email us at 'service@pressurewashersdirect.com'.

The good news is we installed an improved phone system on 10/25 that should eliminate long waits and help us take care of customers quickly. We appreciate your business, and will process your refund as soon as we receive the RMA and label.

Good For Light Cleaning
Bought this for my wife. She worked for an hour on the drive. I borrowed the neighbor's 3000 psi machine and finished the whole drive in half the time. It is good for her in that it will not remove skin if miss-directed and it takes less energy to use.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Light Weight
Cons: Not enough to remove difficult stains

Works Very Well
Pressure washer works very well, Although there is a slight water leak around the plastic fitting used to attach graden hose. So far very pleased with unit.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Easy To Store, Light Weight

Melvin,
You may want to check and make sure the gasket inside your garden hose is a new one, so it can make a tight seal. A wrap or two of teflon pipe tape around the connection threads may also help.

Bought Two, Both Broke
Bad electrical parts. The first on just would not turn on after about 5 hours of run time. I threw it away. I figured it was a fluke. The second one would. It turn off when you let go of the pistol grip and sprays at half of normal pressure. So much for German quality and the fancy pump.

Peter,
I checked our files, and I didn't see where you purchased your units from us... but if you bought them from an authorized retailer both of those pressure washers came with a 2 year Factory Warranty from Karcher, there was no need to throw your money away.

A simple call to Karcher at (800) 537-4129 would have gotten you a replacement as part of their Rapid Return program, provided of course that the problem was a defect in Karcher's materials or workmanship, and not misuse or abuse.

Page 9 of the Owner's Manual tells you the motor starts only if the trigger of the spray gun is pulled, and shuts off when the trigger is released- it's supposed to do that. If you had the spray nozzle rotated to the Soap Mix position (Page 10 in the Owner's Manual) it would spray at a lower pressure because it opens the siphon in the detergent tank.

As long as your second unit was purchased from an authorized Karcher retailer, it is also covered by the 2 year, consumer use Factory Warranty.

Not Very Powerful
Quality seemed good. Easy to assemble - directions were fairly clear and all the parts were in the box. Assembly took about 30 minutes.

Only two quality concerns: the plastic hose connector parts (really should be brass) and the plastic hose reel. Maybe these will hold up but they seem really flimsy. It is fairly quiet.

My major complaint is lack of power. I have an older Husky 1750 and when I ran the Karcher from the same water source as the Husky, power was noticeably less. If... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet
Cons: Expensive, Limited power

Tom,
You should be getting a very strong water stream from your Karcher as long as you have the Vario Spray Wand turned all the way up towards the "Max" setting as shown on Page 10 in your Owner's Manual.

The Owner's Manual Troubleshooting Guide also suggests making sure the garden hose is 5/8" in diameter or larger, and checking to make sure the inlet filter isn't clogged.

If none of these suggestions help, they you may want to contact the folks at Karcher at (800) 537-4129 to see about Warranty replacement. Please have the serial number of your unit handy if you call Karcher- they will ask for it.

Nice Addition To My Cleaning Tools
I use this to augment my gas pressure washer for lighter duty chores around the house like cleaning windows and window screens, washing and waxing the car, and even power washing my fiberglass shower stall.

Not powerful enough, for me, to do the deck and driveway, as it would take much too long -- but for touch-ups after cleaning with the gas pressure washer this one does the trick.

All in all, a very nice addition in my arsenal to vanquish the chaos of dirt and grime that creeps its way... more

A Really Nice Electric Pressure Washer
Having had a smaller electric Karcher before, I knew pretty much what to expect, but this one's a lot nicer. It was easy to put together, and it's well designed.

It stores neatly, thanks to the hose reel, big cord hook, and accessory bin. The onboard soap tank is small, but convenient: no extra bucket and hose to get in the way.

This machine doesn't have the power of a gas one, but it does everything I need, and it's nice and quiet.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Easy To Store, Price

Very Good Product
I bought this Pressure Washer to use on a large wooden deck in preparation for staining - the washer had enough pressure to clean the deck well without splintering the wood - used for 8 hours over two days and it did the job!

I also have another lower pressure Karcher pressure washer that I have used for many years so knew this would be a good quality product. The only negative is I wish the water hose connection was brass.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Quiet, Easy To Store
Cons: Difficult Assembly, Water Hose Connection Could be More Durable

I'm Power Washing Out In The Rain!
I have had two other Karchers in twenty years. They were bought at a warehouse club. The directions were small print, and I got it together without breaking anything. The parts snap together and are precision designed.

My last model had a brass fitting to connect the hose, but this one is plastic with a M22 quick disconnect adapter--I don't get it but will see how it holds up.

This machine is very quiet and for the 2000 psi does a remarkable job on the driveway, garage door, blue stone... more

James,
The quick connect saves wear & tear on the connection (and your knuckles) and helps to prevent cross-threading & leaks. Many folks will add a quick connector set to their garden hose as well to make setup easier.

Disappointed
My pressure washer was not what I expected. Tried it for 2 hours and was very disappointed in its performance. Called and wanted to return it for a more expensive washer. Was told since it was used I couldn't return it. I gave it away and purchased a more powerful one from my local Big Box store. If I had purchased one from a local dealer in the first place there wouldn't have ever been a problem returning it with a full refund. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Buy Local and you wont have any problems.

Terry,
I respectfully disagree with your assertions. You called us on 8/2 and complained about the power of this unit compared to a gas unit, then you told us the K5 had stopped working and you wanted to return it for a gas powered model.

We did not tell you your unit was used and non-returnable. We told you the K5 Premium is covered by Karcher's Factory Warranty and part of their Rapid Exchange Program, and we gave you Karcher's (800) 537-4129 number and asked you to call them. Their policy is to replace the faulty pressure washer as quickly as possible- if the model you have is not available they will replace it with a better model.

When you called us back you said Karcher told you they didn't carry the K5 models, and could not help you. We work closely with Karcher, and we know that's not the case; but we want to help our customers- so we asked you to send us the sticker from your unit so we could refund your money. Since you've given the unit away I will void your RMA.

Our Return Policy link is at the bottom of every page.
