My very first pressure washer was a Karcher, very solid construction and it lasted 10 years. My second Karcher - rubbish plasticky construction - lasted just 3 uses in 1 year before the commonly reported "pulsing and leaking" fault occured. I care for all my garden equipment , cleaning and drying after every use, storing in warm enough places in winter etc and if I do not know how to care for electrical equipment then no one does and no one will have a chance of running one of these Karcher… Read Full Review

Am a domestic user and only use it once per year to clean my drive. Yet again, was only able to clean half my drive and it packed up. Took it to the local dealer who repaired it.....brought it back and yet another problem...took it back again. All too expensive repairs and left with the problem "is it economical to repair again"! the… Read Full Review

I bought the Karcher (K3.86 M) pressure washer from Halfords approx 2 years back. Recently water poured out the bottom of the unit. After reading that other had similar problems I inspected the unit to see what had failed. There is a mechanical clip designed to hold on the "connection" part (This is what you plug the outlet pressure hose to). Anyhow this mechanical clip slots into little groves on what Karchers parts list calls the "housing". There are two sets of groves top and bottom on… Read Full Review

I bought a refurbish Karcher K4.130 from the Kracher refubisment outlet. It seemed like a good idea but, when it arrived it was quite worn on the wheels and the bottom had the serial label hanging off. When i connected the hose water poured out from inside the machine. Clearly untested, clearly well used and not what is promised on the website. I hope I will get my full refund Inc saturday postage in the next few days. No explination or apology. 2nd Kracher that has failed. I am going to try a… Read Full Review

Karcher 130 bought Apr.2009. Used twice, did a good job, very powerful. Came to use it Apr 2010 leaking badly from pump & motor surging. Stored in bag in garage over winter. (Could have been got at by old Jack Frost. Bad winter.)No joy from Karcher uk. re guarantee as we had not got purchase receipt.(It was birthday present)They will repair it at cost.Not happy with Karcher. It,s now a pile of scrap. £200 down the drain. Pardon the pun.(not funny) Warning; Always attach purchase receipt to copy… Read Full Review

On the positive side it cleans well when it was working however after 9 months the Pump failed and started to leak.
The retailer replaced the unit under warranty however the replacement unit also failed with the same fault after 9 months.
As the warranty apparently only covers the unit from the date of original purchase, the replacement unit only had 3 months warranty left when it was replaced. I was therefore left with a bill for £80 for a replacement Pump.
If you want a pressure washer for… Read Full Review
