The Kärcher K 2 Compact jet washer might be small and lightweight but it can make light work of even the biggest cleaning jobs. Whether you're looking for a gentle touch to clean delicate paintwork on your car or you need a pressurised flow of water to remove stubborn dirt from a weathered wall, the K 2 Compact is up to the task. The unit is not only compact, it's ergonomically designed meaning the handles fit comfortably in the hand. The K 2 Compact is easy to carry and use - both during and in between cleaning jobs. The cables, hose and accessories can all be stored on the machine itself and the machine can be stored neatly in most cupboards or transported easily in the boot of a car. The K 2 Compact jet washer comes with a trigger gun, a one way lance and a Dirt Blaster lance that can deliver 50% more cleaning power by using a concentrated rotating pencil jet. There’s also a 4m high pressure hose to give you plenty of reach and a detergent suction facility for lower pressure cleaning on surfaces such as car bodies. The plastic casing is impact-resistant and designed to prevent dirt from damaging the motor and pump, making the K 2 Compact as durable as it is effective.

Pressure washer K 2 Compact

K 2 Compact is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from K2 Compact For some reason my Karcher K2 cuts out after 20 minutes use. Plenty of water pressure and power but it will not start up. Was working fine until recently,

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit Disappointed I bought a second K2 to replace my previous K2, which just stopped working, it was out of warranty but actually cheaper to buy a new one rather than pay for repairs. Just come to use my K2 again and nothing, they seem to last just over 2 years with moderate use. Disappointed and expected better, but twice bitten, so might try an alternative brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish I guess I'm pretty stupid, the first one turned into a fountain, the second one just died, Yes I know..Why buy a second one? Cheap and cheerful I suppose. About to go and throw some more money away, any suggestions?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from one wash, two wash, three wash, KAPUT My son bought this for me summer 2016 as a retirement gift. Used three times nor problem. On the fourth car wash the machine just quit working. Checked all fuses and they were fine. At the cost of this power washer, I averaged £22.00 per car wash! Very Disappointed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very bad product Worst buy ever. Before one year of domestic usage (car wash twice a month), it started to leak water. The pump broke and it lost pressure. Out of warranty, get it repaired it costs as much as buying a brand new. I don't recommend this product at all

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pathetic The lance on the pressure washer stopped working after a couple of uses. The supplier's response was that it was an accessory that only had a 30 day guarantee. So if you want to buy a new lance every couple of months then this is the pressure washer for you.
