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 Floor Cleaner offers even more convincing arguments: in comparison with conventional methods, 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.

FC 5 Hard Floor Cleaner - Pet is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken already I purchased this a while back & was disappointed. For the nearly £400 cost when I bought it only worked well for a few months. When I pull back the rollers make a weird noise. It’s heavy & cord isn’t very short. I really wish I had waited to get all the issues had been resolved & newer models were made. Heavy, doesn’t stand easily & certainly doesn’t make cleaning my floor easier. I hoover before I wash with Karcher as I purchased for task of washing floors. Very disappointed! Customer care poor also left with product to gather dust!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sent back twice for repair I thought this product was great when I first used it on Lino, but after using it on porcelain tiles, its flaws became evident. It leaves streak marks where the gap between the rollers is which is impossible to remove except by wiping over the surface afterwards with a cloth, which makes the process more effort than it is worth. It has now stopped working twice, with the same problem, the water is not coming through onto the rollers. It's a real pain returning the product to Karcher for repair as you need to box it up for collection, then wait for it to be collected. Overall, the hassle isn't worth it and I would not recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not dispense water to rollers Right from the start the machine didn’t dispense water to the rollers which would run dry quickly after the priming water was rubbed off. The machine has been returned and repaired after it started making a noise like a bag of spanner’s......engineering term...... The clean tank water flows ok when manually pressed by the valve at the bottom so not blocked there, however it does not flow through tube to the brass nozzle and then to the rollers, all these parts are not user cleanable/serviceable so cannot be taken apart . I am an electrical engineer and have worked on many different types of karcher products over the years, this is the best idea to automate hard floor cleaning I’ve seen BUT THE WATER DISPENSING SYSTEM IS SIMPLY NOT SUITABLE FOR PURPOSE. The idea of using the waters own weight to operate a simple valve whilst the machine is moving like a vacuum cleaner looks great on a computer, BUT DOES NOT WORK IN PRACTICE......Unless all the parts can be easily cleaned/unblocked. YOU OBVIOUSLY KNOW ABOUT THIS DESIGN FAULT, WHY NOY FIX IT, GIVE YOUR CUSTOMERS THE PRODUCT THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD PURCHASED IN THE FIRST PLACE........ My present solution to this problem is to have a hand spray bottle and spray water ahead of the machine....or I could purchase a mop with integrated sprayer for £5, and put the karcher into landfill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good at all Had it a little while, rollers stopped going around, got it back, the clean water is not going out so have to chuck it on the floor to clean it and then the dirty water leaks out the back like a sieve, dont wast your money and if you have to send it back dont bother as it comes back with 2 faults

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love mine, but have a repeating fault I love my mop, it does exactly what I need, but the casing at the mop head keeps coming apart. This is the second time and it's so annoying. It makes the product seem cheap when there appears to be no screws holding it together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FC 5 Bought this a few days ago seems to be fine. Might be a bit quick for a old person if they don't hold it properly as it tends to take off fairly fast.
