My review of the Karcher K5 compact

My review of the Karcher K5 compact

As a family we have always owned a jet washer and had the Karcher K2 for many years, we find that jet washers have some amazing benefits and speed up outside cleaning no end.

Recently the lovely team at Karcher sent me the K5 compact to review. Such a treat for my husband who once he starts cleaning out in the garden finds it very hard to stop.

The K5 compact really is fantastic, the new sleek design is fabulous and has a few extra features from the older models. The LED trigger gun is useful and makes changing between jobs quick and easy while ensuring you are set with the correct pressure for the job in hand.

What I really love about the K5 is it comes with everything you need to clean the car, patio, decking, windows, dustbins, cycles etc.  It even works great as lifting all the dirt of the BBQ too.

All the joints fit together very well (no leaks) and we both found it extremely simple to use and worked brilliantly.  Cleaning the car is now a real breeze and it was clean within minutes. It’s very sturdy with full control settings and extremely powerful and on my first attempt I was nearly knocked back, so do be careful!

The K5 has brought our dirty old patio up like new and has cleaned all the cobwebs off the fence ready for us to give the fence a fresh coat of paint for the summer months.

Being compact makes it easy for even me to use. It’s really easy to maneuver and its fitted with two carrier handles. It’s also not to heavy and stores away neatly and easily in the garage.

Great at cleaning up our old and dirty patio slaps
Compact and easy to carry around

This is a great product with excellent cleaning power. Has been an absolute pleasure to use and my husband couldn’t be happier! He can be very hard to please!… If your like me and like everything to be super clean then this is defiantly a great investment to keep your outside space nice and clean. The added bonus is you also get in the box a bottle of the 3 in 1 stone and facade cleaner.
