The Kärcher K 2 Compact jet washer might be small and lightweight but it can make light work of even the biggest cleaning jobs. Whether you're looking for a gentle touch to clean delicate paintwork on your car or you need a pressurised flow of water to remove stubborn dirt from a weathered wall, the K 2 Compact is up to the task. The unit is not only compact, it's ergonomically designed meaning the handles fit comfortably in the hand. The K 2 Compact is easy to carry and use - both during and in between cleaning jobs. The cables, hose and accessories can all be stored on the machine itself and the machine can be stored neatly in most cupboards or transported easily in the boot of a car. The K 2 Compact jet washer comes with a trigger gun, a one way lance and a Dirt Blaster lance that can deliver 50% more cleaning power by using a concentrated rotating pencil jet. There’s also a 4m high pressure hose to give you plenty of reach and a detergent suction facility for lower pressure cleaning on surfaces such as car bodies. The plastic casing is impact-resistant and designed to prevent dirt from damaging the motor and pump, making the K 2 Compact as durable as it is effective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed We bought this a little over 12 months ago, used it 3 times, then stored it away for the winter. When I went to use it at the end of may, within 5 minutes of switching it on, I heard my wife screaming for me to stop!!! As I turned around I was greeted with large amounts of smoke coming from the pressure washer!!! Very disappointed is an understatement

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor connector for bayonet Brought a K2 Compact from B & Q last year . The connector from hose onto bayonet has snapped , it can not be repaired and I can not buy a replacement at a resonable price .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from was good then stopped he my K2 for just over a year came with patio cleaner which is good but detergent feed pipe didn't work, also got the car foam spray which is good now the bad bit ,I used the foam on my car then pressure washed it all ok ,I then wheel it to the wife's car and no pressure ,water was going through machine ok with no signs of leaks ,I felt the machine and it was hot and some thing was rattling inside then I saw some carbon bit fall out ,so looks like the Motor has blown up which looking at other reviews is a problem with these ,have had to use my dads old K2
