Used three times on paths and drive ways. Just like other reviews, smelt burnt plastic. Turned of and pulled apart and the motor fan had melted off the shaft and chewed into the cowling. Going to try a fix that may work. Maybe ok for people who want to run for a few minutes at a time. Definetly no good for domestic around the house type cleaning. (read more)

I bought one of these DIY power washers, it was great at the start, then after a few uses it lost pressure. I noticed water spraying out from the inside, so I took the cover off and used it without the cover, there was water spraying everywhere. I tried to seal the plastic pump body with an industrial sealant/adhesive, but the water kept finding new places to spray out from. I gave up in the end. The pump is fairly powerful but the cheap plastic body can't cope with the pressure. My brother... (read more)

I bought mine for an annual clean of the paviors on my front drive. I used it twice - about one hours work each time. On its third use the motor expired within ten minutes smoking and reeking of of burning plastic. The guarantee had also expired. If you are my worst enemy please buy one - they are absolutely wonderful and I trust you will experience the same joy in ownership. (read more)

Don't buy a Karcher K2.94MD !
I've had it for two years and probably used it 5 times in total.
It keeps getting hot and making bad noises after a few minutes use and pi$$ed oil all over my patio.
Over priced, poorly designed plastic junk :o( (read more)

I too bought a Karcher because my father has had the same one for over 15 years with a massive amount of use with out any problems , so I thought of nothing else but to purchase a Karcher , I used it once it did the job but didnt feel of the same quality as I remmembered . I lent it to my mother-in-law to clean the fence but it started to smoke and catch on fire , she felt bad knowing it was new so she took it back to the store and they said it was her fault as you shouldn't use it for more...

Purchased a K5.55, brilliant, for approximately 6 hours use (Max). Now it has lost pressue badly, won't rotate the T-Racer or Dirt Blaster. Karcher say "check for air lock" (standard 'kiss off' response). Expensive machine purchased with longevity in mind, lasted shorter time than the £24.99 machine purchased from local market (ironically 10% of the purchase price of the K5.55)
Rubbish machine, rubbish support, rubbish company. Do not buy Karcher!!! (read more)
