Rated 2 out of 5 by from Handy but disappointed that it leaks This is a good piece of equipment but I'm really disappointed that it leaks. I've sent it back to Karcher twice now and they tell me that they can't find a fault but you cannot leave the tank filled with water overnight as it leaks which isn't great for a mobile washer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a quick clean I use this to clean my Vauxhall Adam it is perfect for ringing the car after the wash. It is ideal for my circumstance as the car is parked in a secure car park away from a water source. It would not be any good at cleaning dirt of a car on its own but is perfect for ringing a car after it has been washed. To be fair Karcher do not sell it as a car cleaner and this is what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kärcher OC3 Portable washer Why did I wait so long to get one? I got this with the 'bike clean' accessories and I really wish i had got one sooner, the beginning of the winter biking season would have been clever! I can now wash the bike after every dirty use BEFORE putting it in the van, then not only do I wash the mud off at the event rather than all over my drive, i also don't have to clean the van out of mud when I get home! The brush attachment is simple and easy to attach, just click and turn and then water comes through the brush as you wipe, perfect for getting the worst of the mud off, especially good on tyres. If you clean the mud off straight away, you really don't need cleaner (although you get cleaner and a spray head in the pack too). of course you need to fill it up with water before you leave home, and the tank is not that big so use sparingly or take some extra bottles to top up with. I used 2 tanks worth to do the whole bike. I even have started using it at home as its so easy to transport around rather than dragging the hose from the other side of the house. The clever bike accessories box holds all the bits and it just clicks on to the cleaner making a neat box and the hose sits inside nicely when you are not using it. Simple and small enough to leave in the car or van for any muddy days out, cleaning wellies etc. its still winter...Get one!.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite perfect Bought this for muddy mountain bikes and for this it is great. The pressure is perfect for getting off wet mud and cleans the bike well, without causing damage to bearings etc. It charges quick at home and the battary last long enough to thoroughly clean one bike or give a good clean to two possibly three. I have two issues however, the first is minor but you have to be carefull puting the water lid on as it is flimsy and easy to get not quite on with water spilling out as a result. The second issue is that the water tank is two small. It should be a minimum of 6 litres which would clean one bike thoroughly. You will definitely need to carry more water which is a bit of a pain. Overall though im pleased as it does the job, is easy to use and is reasonable value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the job After a wet muddy winter last year I just had to find a solution to cleaning up my springer spaniels when returning home. This is great after two muddy mornings so far. I put warm water in the container and only used a small amount to clean the mud off and the dogs did not shy off. They were getting distressed with the hose last winter as they are getting older now. I can take this machine onto the paving and also looking forward to taking away in the caravan this Autumn. Is it possible to have a 12 volt adapter with "cigarette lighter" plug for caravanning when not on hook up?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for washing dogs after a muddy walk I bought this a month ago and have not looked back. I am a peofessional dog walker and I would not be without my Karcher now. A quick hose down is all that is needed to return the dogs home clean. Fantastic thanks Karcher!
