bought a karcher k2.360
used for 10 minutes on concrete paving
thing started to smell , smoke was coming out of unit and pressure loss
took back and got my money back
wouldnt touch this product with a forty foot barge pole.
will hire a machine to do the job, much safer option

I was just about to replace my 3 year old Lavor which works but I think is a piece of c**p, with a new Karcher. After reading the reviews below, I think I think I'll put my money back in the ol oak chest and stick to my piece of c**p. (read more)

I can only agree with the comments about Karcher. The latest was my third but only lasted from the summer - stored in cellar for winter - used once in Jan and now the cheap plastic pump is leaking so I have just binned it.The later modl are lightweight and shoddy will never buy another Karcher pressure washer.

Like most people on here I have purchased more than one of these thinking the first failure was bad luck! They seem to change model number every few months whilst inherently the same machine.
Little use on all three units I have purchased I would say no more than 5hrs each. Biggest job was to clear the moss from my paved driveway, a typical domestic task I would say and probobaly two hours intermittant use although may have been continously for ten minutes before pausing to sweep up.

Bought it last year,cleaned everything in sight,dog included,All good.
Put it away,got out today to clean patio,water pouring out inside and pulsating,virtually nil pressure.
Thought it was me,changed connectors,etc.
Asked Hubbie on return,looks like it has had it says he,after 1 use?
Nearly chucked it over hedge!
Of course, out of Warranty,and thrown box away.

Same as other folks. Used a few times over summer before last. Left in basement over winter - come spring wouldn't work. Stripped down, bought expensive replacement bits. Re-assembled - worked. Left in basement over winter (no frost or nasties) come spring - dead again. Stripped down but no joy. Binned the piece of c**p. Avoid at all costs! (read more)

Karcher 330M A terrible piece of junk. This is my second one, I should have learned. First one failed right away so I took it back where I bought it and got another. Had it for 2 yrs, used maybe 6 times, now leaking water profusely internally and pressure dropping. No repairs at a reasonable cost. Do Not Buy a Karcher!!!! (read more)
