The Floor Cleaner FC 5's two-in-one function lets you mop and suction wet and dry dirt in just one step. No need to vacuum beforehand – mopping has never been easier, faster or more thorough. The automatically moistened, rotating microfibre rollers pick dirt up, while the water-dirt mixture is continuously suctioned off the rollers at the same time. This practical self-cleaning function keeps the rollers fresh and ready to use at all times. The FC 5 uses up to 85% less water while providing significantly better cleaning performance. The FC 5 can be used on all standard hard floors, whether they are made of wood, stone or plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine has been a lifesaver We have porcelain tiles and a toddler that crawls around leaving her fingerprints everywhere! This machine has been a lifesaver and has made mopping twice a week a breeze. The machine is easy to clean, does a fantastic job in picking up the crumbs and mopping at the same time. I don't know how you improve this machine, but whenever they do - I'll be upgrading to the next version. The team at Parramatta Kaercher helped make this decision for my wife and myself (Greg) - and he knows what he is talking about!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Let me explain! I bought the FC 5 Hard Floor Cleaner because of an add in the NYTimes and because Karcher is a German company. The product is good if you don't expect it to get dried food off the kitchen floor. I've decided to go back to a mop and elbow grease and that's when my problems started. No easy link for returns. No one answered 2 separate emails. Approximately 5 minute hold before getting kicked to a voice message that provided another 800 number for individual customers. That number required me to answer questions for multiple promotions before I was allowed to spec to a representative. I didn't answer the questions and had to hang up. I was so angry! I finally left a message on the retail voice mail box for someone to PLEASE CALL ME. And they did. And they apologized and asked me to help them understand the issues I encountered. I spoke to a helpful and kind rep and her manager. Yes, Karcher's launch is not going well. But they acted like the company I expected them to be. They resolved my issue 100% and then went the extra mile to thank me for helping them. The best companies out there don't operate without issues, they avoid issues as much as possible, then resolve issues that do arise the right way. I will recommend Karcher to others and depending on your needs, the FC 5 may be right for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! Super easy to use and clean/maintain the unit. I was worried it would be a lot of work to clean when done using. It definitely saves a lot of time to clean and vacuum both in just one easy pass!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built and works well on smooth flooring. I would like to see more aggressive rollers as an option to get into grout
