I've got a lot of experience with both gas and electric pressure washers. 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. That's not a whole lot of GPM for that pressure, likely because a larger volume pump would simply cost more to have the in the unit.
The pressure washer was fairly easy to put together and took me about 20 minutes. At least 10 of those minutes was spent trying to get the high pressure hose to seat into the pressure pump itself. What a pain in the you know what. I don't know if the machining was slightly off or what, but seriously I was ready to drink a second beer. At any rate, I got it all together and it looks pretty sharp.
During use, this puppy is quiet. I can't believe how quiet it is when it runs. Using the high pressure wand it really doesn't feel like 2,000 PSI to me. Maybe it's because it's a lower volume output or 2K is simply the peak power. It does do a good job at cleaning and if you need this to clean off the deck, wash the car, wash the siding...it will do just fine for you. If you plan to use it commercially; look elsewhere.
Overall, this is a good balance of power and value, but if you need something really heavy duty, plan on forking out another $200. Having said that, you have to keep in mind this is NOT a $500 gas pressure washer, so the folks comparing it to that just isn't fair. I did receive this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest an unbiased opinion of it. I hope you found my review helpful and if so, please click the yes button below. Thanks!
First things first, this still an electric pressure washer so no, it's not going to provide the same level of power that a gas pressure washer will (2500+ PSI for some) but I do find that it is "that much closer" so to speak then the old AR model. The best way I can frame it is in time, and while I would say this Karcher doesn't work "twice as fast" as our older cheaper AR model it's definitely in the range of 50-60% more efficient since I can spray wider and still remove material from the driveway. With the bottom of the barrel AR Blue model we had to basically walk with the gun almost to a needle point to get enough pressure to effectively get all the moss and growth from the winter off. Also while the AR model feels like what it is (cheap plastic) the K5 feels significantly heavier in the hand, and also has far burlier wheels. I saw one reviewer say he tipped his unit without "much force" but to that I can only say this is probably how every electric pressure washer is going to be (that I've seen) based on how they are designed to be taller and take up less floor space. The hose is ample, so if your paying attention to your location you should never need to "pull it forward" and really, just walk back and roll it up on the wheels. The unit is NOT designed to be "tugged" or pulled on simply put and it's a user error in my opinion (my AR blue does the exact same thing, if you run out the reel and aren't paying attention and keep moving forward the unit will tug behind you and tip over so it's not really an issue with the K5 specifically in my opinion).
If you are like us and want something to blow off the patio or maybe make washing a car go a little faster but don't have a huge garage or storage shed these little compacts are great. They store super easily, you don't need to keep gas on hand to run them and they won't drive your neighbors insane. While I never tried anything "in the middle" compared to the basement models that sell for around $100 the K5 Premium is definitely a huge upgrade. From the fit and finish on the unit itself (no leaks) to the amount of "effective" work area, everything I can see touch and feel has been a huge improvement but again, you get what you pay for. If you only have $120 to spend, the entry level models still get the work done, you just have to live with it taking longer and based on my experience (and reviews I've ready) lots of water leaking!
Product ships in it's original carton which originally alarmed me a little bit but it's packed very well inside of that box (clearly intended to be shipped this way from the factory) and it is both taped and wrapped in straps (See photo).

I've used it to power wash most of my house and am very pleased with its cleaning capabilities. For washing the house, I use the non-turbo nozzle and it cleans the vinyl siding well even without using any soap/cleaner. Parts of the house had heavy mildew so using no cleaner impressed me. I've also used it to clean the wheels on my car and once again, no solvent is required to do a thorough job; comparable to what I used to do with wheel cleaner and a bottle brush.
I've used the turbo attachment for cleaning some of the driveway and it has done a satisfactory job but I have not used it as extensively as the non-turbo attachment.
I definitely prefer this one to my now dead Husky electric PW. Much more power with the non-turbo attachment but to be fair, I do not recall the PSI rating of the Husky so this may not be a fair comparison.
The true test, for me, will be in how long it lasts. The water cooled motor give me hope that it will outlast my previous unit.
