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.

FC 5 Cordless *AU is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor performer I purchased the hard floor cleaner a few weeks back and having used it on 3 occasions I’m rating it a straight up waste of money. Whilst it’s well built and the rollers go round (Only reason I gave it two stars) as a floor cleaner, it’s a very poor performer. Delivers only a partial clean, definitely leaves streaks and having to be within a certain angle with the floor means there’s plenty of places it just doesn’t go/do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing appliance I purchased this appliance a week ago after reading all the reviews and have used it twice.I thought it would really suit my cleaning needs, however that’s not the case at all.. For the price I paid I really expected a lot better cleaning experience. It leaves streaks on the tiles and the day after it the clean, it doesn’t look like the floor has even been cleaned. I don’t think the rollers are thick enough and also a second set of rollers should have been included given the cost of the machine. It’s also a lot heavier than the demonstration on TV indicates. In conclusion I think it’s a very overrated, overpriced appliance and I’m quite sorry I purchased it.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than a mop! I used to have the corded version of the FC5 and just purchased the new cordless version and I'm glad I did. There's so much flexibility and I can easily clean my floors much quicker now! I was amazed looking at the dirty water tank after I finished to see just how dirty my floors actually were.. Highly recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cleans well , but!! we are into its third week of use and can confirm it does a good job, however I am keen to try alternative additives from Karcher to suit different floor types. One of the rollers tends to un attach itself from the unit...other than that OK
