Karcher K2 Compact Car & Home Pressure Washer with Patio Cleaner 110 Bar 1400w 240vCompact & lightweight, the K2 Compact Home & Car pressure washer is easy to transport and is ideal for all cleaning tasks around the home. Included with the machine is a trigger gun, 4m high pressure hose, one way lance, detergent suction facility and a dirtblaster lance which provides up to 50% greater cleaning power than a standard high pressure lance. The K2 Compact Home also comes complete with a Home kit containing a T50 patio cleaner and patio detergent, and a Car Kit containing wash brush, foamer and car shampoo. A pressure switch control switches the motor on and off when the ergonomically-designed trigger gun is pressed and released, whilst an impact-resistant, recyclable plastic casing effectively prevents dirt particles from damaging the motor and pump. All Karcher K2 pressure washers can also be used from a gravity fed harvested water source such as a water butt tap.Features & Benefits:• Large cable and hose hook for a neat storage solution• Ergonomic carry handle• Detergent suction tube for the application of detergents• Automatic stop/start motor when the trigger is released• Water inlet filter prevents dirt particles from damaging the pump• Rotary on/off switchSpecifications:Max bar pressure (bar): 110Max Water flow rate (l/h): 360Motor (W): 1400Motor type: Air CooledArea performance (m²/h): 20Max. water feed temperature (°C): max. 40Detergent intake: Suction tubeDimensions (L x W x H) (mm): 280 x 176 x 443Cable length (m): 5mVoltage (V): 220 - 240Weight (Kg): 4.080Includes:T50 Patio cleaner500ml makes 5 Litres Patio & Deck CleanerFoam Nozzle500ml makes 5 Litres Car ShampooTrigger gunOne-way spray lanceHigh-pressure hose, 4 mDirt BlasterAdapter garden hose A3/4"Detergent suction hosePressure WashersTo help determine the type of pressure washer required it is important to consider the size of your cleaning task and level of duty, i.e. how big is the cleaning object and how often will you need to clean it? Below is an explanation of the two main types of pressure washer. Whilst bar pressure is important the overiding factor in cleaning power is the water flow rate. More water = better cleaning.Home & Garden (sometimes referred to as domestic, DIY or consumer).Lightweight, easily portable and designed for regular use in a domestic environment, these machines range in power to suit the size of your cleaning task. Models featuring ‘water cooled motor’ technology offer greater performance, and top of the range machines are often fully loaded with accessories. Xpert or Professional (sometimes referred to as commercial or industrial)Heavy duty, robust and designed for maximum durability, Xpert or Professional machines have higher pressure and flow ratings, enabling you to clean with far greater speed and efficiency. These machines are not readily available on the high street or in DIY superstores and often feature upgraded components throughoutJargon Buster:• Bar or PSI: Bar is the most common measure of pressure. PSI = bar x 14.5.• Bar (max): This is the pressure achieved when the machine is first turned on• Bar (rated) pressure: This is the operating water pressure of the machine.• Motor size (kW): Motor size indicates power providing the machine runs efficiently. • Flow Rate (l/h): Higher flow rates enable you to clean large areas or objects fasterDid You Know:Pressure Washers use up to 80% less water than garden hosepipes.Pressure Washers are not subject to hosepipe bans if used for safety reasons, or if a suction hose is used to pull water from a harvested source. i.e. not the water mains. They are also not subject to a ban if used for commercial reasons, for example to maintain cleanliness, hygiene or company image.Important things to remember when using your pressure washer:• Always use an RCD when using electrical products in connection with water.• Never use a non-return valve at the pressure washer connection to a hose pipe.• Never drive over or lay items on high pressure hoses to avoid damage.• Your water supply hose should be a min of several meters long and unwound from its reel.• If you are using an extension lead, check that it is rated at min of 13 amps and fully unwound from its reel.

Amazing little thing. So much power in a backpack size plastic body. No need to go for more expensive or more powerful ones unless you want to try cut concrete with water beam :-)

This was a present for my husband to replace an old model. (extensive use over about ten years had resulted in a water leak inside the casing)he has yet to try it out on the paving slabs but is very pleased with its performance when washing the car. He particularly likes the long pick up tube for the soap solution.

I am very please with my purchase of the karcher k2 it has so far couped with all the cleaning needs that i have thrown at it from a patio that had not been cleaned for 30 years to my truck which was cover in mud...

I am very happy with the karcher k2 compact it was excellent value for money, i paid less than £100 and it just does the job for home use like cleaning patios, drives and washing cars. I could not beat this price anywhere else and frankly i don't think anyone needs anything bigger or more powerful than this for home use only. Great product, great service from this on line company.

I love this, it is my new toy. i have been washing bins, paving slaps, garden gates and cars. i am particularly impressed by what it can do to restore dark mold covered slabs and concrete to appearing like new.
