Whether you are cleaning: hardwood, laminate, tiles or stone floors, the hard floor cleaner works brilliantly, leaving them clean and dry in just two minutes. Our innovative SmartRoller technology vacuums up dust, small debris and pet hair, whilst controlling the flow of water to clean your hard floors gently yet effectively. You can also add detergent to lift deep down dirt, to leave your floors with a fresh lemon or bee’s wax smell. The Hard Floor cleaner is light and manoeuvrable, so it is easy to push, carry and store. You can also remove the rollers for machine washing. The hard floor cleaner comes with a two year guarantee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Much too heavy I bought this product about 6 months ago, I have a great respect for the brand so had no hesitation in buying it. How wrong I was, so heavy and cumbersome and cleans no better,in fact worst, than a microfibres mop. So disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good on flat, hard surfaces but not on grouting Bought this machine from the Grand Designs exhibition at the NEC. I have owned a Vax floor scrubber for many years but now needed a replacement. I have other Karcher products and have always been happy with build quality and performance so was confident it would do a good job. I have hard floors throughout the ground floor; a mixture of ceramic tiles in the kitchen/utility/conservatory and wood elsewhere. The machine is very manoeuvrable and it is very easy to prepare it for use. The drum type roller gets in close to skirting. Judging by the muck it picks up in the dirty water reservoir there is no doubt it is getting the floor clean. In my experience the machine does an excellent job on the smoother non-tiled areas. There is no doubt it also cleans the surface of tiles. However, if you expect it to clean dirty grout lines you may be disappointed. I find that I still need to give the grout special attention every so often. Similarly stuff that is adherent to the floor needs to be dealt with manually. I've used the machine for a few weeks now and while I'm happy overall, taking my comments on board, it doesn't avoid having to do some of the clean up by hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The good the bad and the dirty water! So I have had this floor cleaner about 3 weeks now. When I initially unpacked it, it felt heavy and clumsy but flick that on switch and it's as light as a feather and it literally glides by itself. The tanks are very easy to fit, they simply slot in with no effort and no fiddly catches to hold them In place. First time I used it I was shocked by how dirty the water was, I mop my floors every other day if not daily and the water tank was filled with black dirty water. I cleaned the rollers in the black carrier tray and put the machine away in the cubloard. That was my mistake, I should of taken them off to air dry properly as they really did smell when I went to use it again. I gave them a wash and they were as good as new and didn't smell. The only claim I don't agree with is that the floors dry within 2 minutes. My floor by the back door, with the door open, dried in about 4 minutes but the room furthest from the door took about 15 minutes. I have to say though that this wouldn't cause me to take any stars away as the floors are so clean and smear free I wouldn't care if it took longer to dry. Bring on the winter and muddy paw prints, I'm ready for it now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Wow, I love, love, love! The FC5 Hard Floor cleaner is amazing. My whole house has hard floors, I used to dread hoovering and mopping. Not anymore, I can't express quick and easy the FC5 is to use. Firstly, the cleaner is heavier than my hoover, but not too heavy that I struggle to carry upstairs. The clean water tank is enough to do my whole house, this is easy to remove and filled with tap water. The FC5 cleans right up to the edges of rooms and picks up the dirt nicely. My floors dry quickly and without any smears. Emptying the tank is easy to do and you see all the dirt and bits that the FC5 has picked up. Lastly, the lead is long and you do not need to keep unplugging and re-plugging in each room. I would recommend the FC5 to anyone who has hard floors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Effective at cleaning.....but heavy in hand.... I was provided the product to test, after using a couple of times it does a good job of cleaning both tiled and laminate flooring, my wife commented that the tiles in particular looked cleaner than using an alternative product. The ease of not vacuuming first does make a significant difference. Cable length is good. The product feels heavy in the hand when using it and cumbersome, while it has a pivoting head it's quite restrictive. The instructions are not the most intuitive to start with but once you have understood the sequence and the use of the stand as a water reservoir it's ok. After 2 uses one of the rollers has already come apart, replacements are not cheap so this very disappointing.
