Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal I bought this for general house and garden cleaning, and also for washing my boat. Being a compact model it is easy to store and throw in the back of the car to take to the marina. Having the long pressure hose is a real bonus when washing a car or boat. A water cooled motor means I don't have to worry too much when using it, it doesn't overheat like some pressure washers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best item I have ever bought. I bought K4.9 nearly 10+ years ago. I am still satisfied with my buy. As other reviews mention, its powerful but not excessively powerful. It is made for what it is advertised for. It cleans the patio so so easily and with minimum water waste. It washes the car so quickly. I honestly and sincerely recommend this household item to anyone looking for buying a tool to clean patio. When I bought this item I paid almost twice as much as it is now available in market that is why I gave 4 star for the price. But this item for price under £200 is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant ***** "I recently bought The Karcher K4 pressure washer, I have used it on a block paving drive and Indian stone patios and steps. It is so fast I used to use a well known DIY stores own make and the drive used to take 2-3 days with the Karcher I did the drive and one patio in a day. The block paving looks brand new I never achieved that with the previous washer. The Indian stone came up beautifully and took no time at all. I am thrilled with the result I just wished I'd bought it sooner what used to be a incredible chore was just a pleasure. I absolutely recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Does the job" I purchased the K4 to replace an older and heavier power-washer and to suit my domestic needs. It's a good piece of equipment and if something goes wrong, the motor and pump can be repaired. I bought the cleaning detergent to use when washing the family vehicles, but after only a few uses the bottle was empty. I thought that less liquid would have been used, thus being more economical. I would not purchase this again due to the above and suggest that Karcher reconsider this area. The hose can sometimes be a pain, in that it's not all that flexible and needs to be fully stretched out. Maybe a rubber type would sort this out? Overall, it does the job and is powerful enough for 95% of domestic cleaning applications and is light enough to carry around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Troublesome I bought this model because it said it could be used with water from a rain collecting butt. First time I used it, worked well. Second time, it refused to start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for home & garden I purchased this pressure washed to replace my 10 yr old Karcher pressure washer. I find the changes made to the specification of the new machine worthwhile especially the Quick Connect system, to date it has been used to wash the patio the block paved drive and the car with excellent results, I have also purchased an adaptor so that I can use the old hoses.
