Karcher K5 Premium full control – The best pressure washer around?

When it comes to cleaning your car, your patio, bikes or driveway, few things get the job done as well as a pressure washer. Specifically, one made by Karcher. The latest range continues that trend of offering great performance in a versatility while also adding a neat new feature to the trigger handle.

We tried out the Karcher K5 Premium Full Control home pressure washer, and were mightily impressed by its performance.

I’m interested in the HOSE REEL assembly shown at the beginning of this video. Can anyone tell me what make/model of hose assembly and hose this is? I assume it may be a european model as I have not seen anything similar in the USA where I live. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

David Harrison says:

Do you HAVE TO use the bottle of cleaning fluid supplied? Will the unit work if you use another make? Can you just pour any make of cleaning liquid on this?

Lord Lucan says:

I ordered one from Walmart (I live in the USA). When we took it out of the box, there was a little plastic-covered screw in the box. There was no mention of it in the instructions to put it together. After it was assembled, I discovered this screw was shrouded in plastic because it had broken off from the back at the bottom, where the two bits of the machine are held together. It looks like the machine (or mayeb a person) had screwed the screw in so tight that it had sheared off the internal bit that the screw goes into to. So it was returned. I’m still deciding if I want another one or not.

Andy Hayes says:

What is the pump made out of? I used to be a Karcher fields service tech and pumps were either aluminium or brass then. From my experience give the aluminium ones a wide berth.

The unit is 2000 PSI not 400 PSI as stated by the narrator. Visit the company website to verify.
