Extremely compact yet powerful

Kärcher is doing away with the preconception that big vacuum cleaners give more power: the new VC5 is incredibly small, yet can keep up with the cleaning performance of traditional larger devices without any trouble.

Click on the highlighted points to the right in order to learn more about the new Kärcher VC5 vacuum cleaner.

Bagless filter technology.

The bagless filter system not only means that you never have to purchase expensive replacement filter bags – it also enables you to empty the machine 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. The filter is automatically cleaned when it is unscrewed, meaning that the dirt which comes off just needs to be emptied out.

The second 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 VC5 vacuum cleaner not only gives an excellent cleaning performance whilst being extremely compact, 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 VC5 can do everything a large vacuum cleaner can – without the need to drag anything behind you.

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

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 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.

Practical accessories.
