Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Returned this sweeper. Nothing like I had hoped. Maybe ok on wood floors but useless everywhere else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice cleaner Good floor cleaner but could do with a longer run time

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat little broom Perfect for clearing in minutes the kitchen floor and runners and the study's floor and thin rug from the debris the dogs bring in from the garden. Very easy to operate and clean and reaches borders and corners well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Real Deal! I first saw one of these 'electric brooms' in use by personnel on a cruise ship. I was impressed by its effectiveness and the steward strongly recommended it. I researched it on my return home and purchased one from Kaercher. I am delighted with it! It is great for quick tidy-ups and spot cleaning. A definite if you have a lot of wooden flooring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenience!! I love how my KB5 can fold down into the size of a dustpan and be stowed away in small spaces!! I have two dogs who tend to molt, and this is perfect for spot cleaning around the home! Thanks Karcher!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Easy Very light in weight and if I am honest because of that I did not expect it to be that good - 'Wrong' its a great little cleaner for doing all the things you did with a dust pan and brush on a variety of surfaces and saves getting out the main cleaner for small jobs and a tidy up. Charge lasts as long as advertised, Storeage easy as it takes up little floor space with the handle securely up right ready for use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for old or disabled people In spite of the warnings in the manual 'not intended for use by persons with limited physical...capacities' I think this appliance would be ideal for some disabled people and also for young children (with supervision)and especially elderly people. It is light, simple and easy to use. But it won't replace a good conventional vacuum cleaner, but it is ideal for a quick sweep around. One drawback - it could perhaps benefit from a slightly more powerful motor.
