Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenience!! I love how my KB5 can fold down into the size of a dustpan and be stowed away in small spaces!! I have two dogs who tend to molt, and this is perfect for spot cleaning around the home! Thanks Karcher!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Easy Very light in weight and if I am honest because of that I did not expect it to be that good - 'Wrong' its a great little cleaner for doing all the things you did with a dust pan and brush on a variety of surfaces and saves getting out the main cleaner for small jobs and a tidy up. Charge lasts as long as advertised, Storeage easy as it takes up little floor space with the handle securely up right ready for use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for old or disabled people In spite of the warnings in the manual 'not intended for use by persons with limited physical...capacities' I think this appliance would be ideal for some disabled people and also for young children (with supervision)and especially elderly people. It is light, simple and easy to use. But it won't replace a good conventional vacuum cleaner, but it is ideal for a quick sweep around. One drawback - it could perhaps benefit from a slightly more powerful motor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very lightweight easy to use It was very easy to set up and use. I really like how compact and lightweight it is. I found it didnt pick up everything, you have to go over spots again. It would cut out occassionally going from tiled floor to carpet. Its been fantastic using it for quick clean ups saving having to get the bulky hoover out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes sweeping easier and more fun! I have been using the KB5 for around 1 month now, and I am really happy with it! It was really easy to set up and use for the first time, I just needed to assemble the handle and plug it in to charge. Our house has lots of hard flooring, so the KB5 is really helpful with all of the sweeping that I have to do. I am so pleased with it, as it does a better job than I did before within a dustpan and brush, and because I like gadgets, it actually makes the sweeping more fun too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Karcher KB5 After reading the very concise handbook, assembly was quite straightforward, although, pushing the handle segments "fully home" did require quite a lot of pressure. When the sweeper is fully charged the green light stays illuminated. Time to fully charge was approximately 3hrs. The handbook states the sweeper can be used on short pile carpets but when trying on mine it continually cut out. Keeping to tiles and hard floor areas proved to be no problem for the sweeper. Pet furr, small dust particles etc were all deposited in the easy to empty collection box. I used the sweeper, sometimes, twice a day for over a week before re-charging was necessary. I particularly liked the lightness and maneuverability of the sweeper, which, was due to the flexible "knuckle joint" where the handle joined the sweeper. Also, being narrow it's very easy too get in between table and chair legs.The sweeper does look well made and the brush when worn is easy to remove and replace with a new one. All in all a very useful piece of equipment but it is not in the same league as an obviously more powerful vacuum cleaner.
