What customers say about "Key Specs"
Kärcher K5 Electric Power Pressure Washer
  • Powerful, electric so safe for enclosed spaces, easy to use, long power cable and hose arm for the wand, included easy-connect attachments between the washer and the hose.
  • Karcher has been in the game for a long time and offer many sizes and types of washers. This K5 model boasts an impressive 2,000 PSI at 1.4 gallons per minute.
  • The nozzle give a great stream, and the ability tune down the psi from the gun is handy. the automatic soap feed works great, it's simple to use and effective.
  • The dirt blaster attachment is a must have, and made cleaning my driveway easy (and fun).
  • The adjustable tip is a neat idea and the pressure is alright but in general doesn’t feel great (though it cleans ok).
  • The hose fittings are plastic instead of brass. They are easily damaged and prone to leaking.
Kärcher K2000 Electric Power Pressure Washer
  • 3 spray nozzles (including a turbo nozzle for intense cleaning).
  • Turbo nozzle is great for car washing, deck/patio cleaning, and concrete/garage floor scouring.
  • The 2000 psi seems higher, blasting discolorations from bricks that a neighbors 3500 psi washer failed to do. I think it is the intensity of the spray rather than the PSI. Whatever, it works great.
  • This thing constantly stutters as if its not getting water, I have excellent water pressure/flow, i'm only a block from the city well. The only thing worse than this K2000 is the thought of returning it.
  • It cavitates alot. for the advertised 2000 psi it doesn't seem to have move pressure than my old 1000 psi.hose is hard to reel up.

What customers say about "Features"
Kärcher K5 Electric Power Pressure Washer
  • One feature I do like is the snap lock for the water hose connection to the unit. I didn't to waste time making sure the hose was firmly connected and worry about the hose loosening.
  • The variable spray nozzle is a nice feature since you don't have to go around changing tips when going from areas you can blast away at and more sensitive areas that need a little less pressure.
  • The carriage and storage features for hose and cord make transport very easy.
  • Features that I liked were the position of the detergent dispenser and its siphon arrangement. The storage bracket for the gun. The ease of changing the wands. The storage location for the high pressure hose.
  • Wheels could be bigger- sometimes tips if on uneven ground, and the wand has a nice pinch point. But these don't detract from the overall value and usefulness of the washer!
Kärcher K2000 Electric Power Pressure Washer
  • The foot switch was one reason I decided to buy this.
  • I love the thoughtful design; the foot controlled switch is great and I love the side mounted faux recepticle that safeguards the electrical plug.
  • The power cable is pretty long as well. the gun feels pretty solid and well done with brass fittings.
  • The turbo nozzle is very powerful. I love the fact that it has built in storage for the hose and accessories and that the handle can fold. I store it under my workbench.
  • The pressure hose ends are plastic and over time may wear out.
  • No extra holes for extra tips if you buy them.
  • Longer pressure hoses if you buy them cant be stored on the unit.
