The FC 5 Cordless floor cleaner enables maximum ease of use when cleaning hard floors. It features a practical 2-in-1 function to pick up wet and dry dirt and hairs in a single step – with no cords involved. This means you can wipe without vacuuming beforehand and without constant plugging and unplugging. The automatically dampened, rotating microfibre rollers pick up dirt and, at the same time, the water-dirt mixture is continuously carried away from the rollers via suction. This practical self-cleaning function means that the rollers remain fresh and ready to use at all times – and the FC 5 Cordless achieves 20 per cent* better cleaning results compared to conventional cleaning methods. All hard floors such as wood, stone and plastic are dry and can be walked on again after approximately two minutes. The rollers have an automatic forward movement and easy navigation, which saves you a lot of effort in cleaning. Changing and cleaning the rollers is quick and easy, and involves no contact with dirt.* The FC 5 Cordless achieves up to 20% better cleaning performance compared to a conventional mop with floor cloth cover in the "Wiping" test category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight but effective We needed a lighter weight floor cleaner. Our old one was effective but heavy and cumbersome. The FC5 is easy to use, switch on and it runs continuously, washing and sucking up excess fluid. The finished floor tiles soon dried to a good shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use I bought this a couple of weeks ago and was amazed at how easy it was to use. At first, I thought the machine was heavy but when you turn it on you can steer it with your little finger...it actually makes mopping fun! Words I never thought I'd ever say in my life. Re-charging the battery takes 4 hours which seems like a long time but for me it doesn't affect the performance at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Certainly makes mopping easier Having owned several Karcher items over the years this was a no-brainer to purchase. The package arrived promptly, was easy to assemble and has been a pleasure to use. The device is well balanced and is certainly many times easier than using a mop and bucket. The FC5 Cordless transitions seamlessly between the different floor surfaces in my house, the battery charge is more than adequate to do the task. Can only be improved by being able to purchase the Universal Floor Cleaner from the Karcher website. I have no hesitation in recommending this product and consider it money well spent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for quick floor cleaning jobs Light, easy to assemble and use, charges quickly and keeps it charge (even if not used for a couple of days. Its perfect for smaller houses or flat for 2-3 adults which gets light dirt on floors. Easy to use mid week when you have a spill. No faffing around with filling a heavy bucket of water and getting out a mop or bending over to squeeze the mop! Very good for the elderly for this very reason as well. Simple to release the cleaner rollers and pop them in the washing machine. This is not a hot steam floor cleaner - if thats what you're looking for. It would not be good for families with children or dogs where floors may get a lot more dirt and spills. For my use, it suits me perfectly!
