Extremely compact and powerful at the same time.

Only a big vacuum cleaner can be a strong vacuum cleaner? Kärcher is doing away with this preconception and using the new VC 5 to prove that the opposite is true: Even incredibly small vacuum cleaners can keep up with the cleaning performance of large wheeled devices without any trouble.
The VC 5 is even one of the best vacuum cleaners on the market in terms of cleaning performance – as demonstrated by its outstanding ErP label. Click on the highlighted points to the right in order to learn more about the new Kärcher compact vacuum cleaner.


Easy to empty – with no bag.

The bagless filter system not only means that you never have to purchase expensive replacement filters – it also enables you to empty the filter quickly and easily. Simply remove the filter box from the vacuum cleaner, unscrew the cover and empty out the dirt. An area of up to 150 m² can be vacuumed before the filter is full.

Kärcher also thought up something ingenious when it came to filter cleaning – the filter is automatically cleaned when it is unscrewed, meaning that the dirt which comes off just needs to be emptied out.
The second filter in the filter box – the long-life filter – only needs to be cleaned of fine dust every couple of months and can, if necessary, also be washed under running water.

The HEPA hygiene filter (EN 1822:1995) provides a third filtration stage. It reliably retains the finest dust, such as pollen and allergy-triggering particles.

Exceptionally comfortable.

The new VC 5 hand-held vacuum cleaner is not just a hit in terms of its extremely compact design, excellent cleaning performance and clever filter system – it also has a number of features and functions which make vacuuming even more comfortable. Discover the difference.


Remarkably versatile.

Despite its compact, unusual construction style, the VC 5 is not limited in terms of its versatility. It can do everything a large vacuum cleaner can do – without the need to drag anything behind you.

The switchable floor nozzle cleans carpets and all kinds of hard surfaces quickly and thoroughly, but that's not all – it also handles upholstered furniture, narrow crevices and delicate surfaces, such as hi-fi systems.

By removing the floor nozzle and simply assembling the triple-telescopic system, you can create a compact hand-held vacuum cleaner in the blink of an eye. You can attach practical accessories to this device, such as the upholstery nozzle for your sofa and other upholstered furniture, the crevice nozzle for narrow gaps or the furniture brush for delicate objects.
