Handheld vacuum cleaner VC 5 Premium

The space-saving VC 5 Premium (white) handheld vacuum cleaner with versatile accessories can be stored anywhere and yet cleans as thoroughly as a canister vacuum cleaner.

Small vacuum cleaner, great performance. The thoroughness of the VC 5 Premium handheld vacuum cleaner is just as impressive as that of a canister device, despite its extremely compact design. Thanks to Kärcher's patented triple-telescope system, the vacuum cleaner can be reduced to half its original size, so that it takes up very little room when stored in even the smallest household. The particularly compact dry floor nozzle with special air channel and flexible joint was designed especially for the VC 5 Premium and delivers maximum cleaning power, despite the vacuum cleaner itself consuming very little power. The VC 5 Premium's bagless filter system with integrated filter cleaning is also exceptional: instead of purchasing expensive filter bags, you simply remove the filter box to quickly empty it. In addition, the Kärcher VC 5 (white) Premium version has extensive accessories with which you can not only vacuum all hard floors and carpets, but also effortlessly and thoroughly clean narrow spaces and sensitive surfaces.
