Water cooled machines last longer, are quieter and are more efficient. Whilst bar pressure is important the overiding factor in cleaning power is the water flow rate. More water = better cleaning.Jargon Buster:Bar: This is a measure of pressure.Bar - maximum pressure: This is the pressure achieved when the machine is first turned on – it is not possible to maintain this pressure consistently.Bar-rated pressure: This is the operating water pressure of the machine.Motor size: Motor size is measured in watts, and is indicative of how powerful the machine is provided that the product efficiently converts power into cleaning effectiveness. Flow rate: The higher the flow rate (l/hour) the better the performance.Universal Motor: This is an air-cooled, brush type motor that is light enough to allow easy movement whilst still retaining high bar pressure.Induction Motor: This is an air-cooled (unless otherwise stated), piston motor that is more robust and quieter than a universal one which generally delivers higher pressure ratings.Water-cooled Induction Motor: This is the latest in pressure washer technology. Modern-days cars use this method of cooling to optimise engine performance by maintaining consistent operating temperatures. Did 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 static source. Ie not the water mains. They are also not subject to a ban if used for commercial reasons.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 or lay items on high pressure hoses they will get damaged.Use the shortest hosepipe the jobs allows as it will keep flow rate to the pressure washer high.

Very quick delivery from tooled-up.I bought this washer as Karcher has a good name. I have used it on various jobs,cleaning brickwork,paving slabs,and the car,it is very good for cleaning alloy wheels and so, for the money I paid,so far, I am very happy with my purchase.

Works very well, not managed to sort out the cleaning liquid side of it yet but overall performance is excellent.

QuestionBy Charles on 16/04/2013
I have a hose connection, but the supply is quite weak (low pressure).
Will this work satisfactorily? I see that the device can work with a gravity feed which I presume will have a lower pressure than my hose, but the head (volume) of water will be lower I think.
AnswerBy 'Tooled-Up Team Member' on 16/04/2013
All Karcher machines work with no positive pressure, they will "draw" water from a static source without a problem. This is one of the many advantages of Karcher machines so low water pressure will be no problem.It would be a good idea to make sure the Hose connector you use is not of the "Water Stop" type ,these can cause issues with some pressure washers.
QuestionBy Patricia Redbourn on 02/04/2013
Please can you tell me if the KARCHER K3/K$ pressure washer will work off a 200 gallon water storage tank.
AnswerBy 'Tooled-Up Team Member' on 03/04/2013
Yes but you would need a suction hose in addition to do this :Karcher Water Suction Hose & Filter For K2 - K7 Pressure Washers
