Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressed with this wet and dry vac. I use this vac for work, and as a plumbing and heating engineer it ticks all the boxes. As a wet vac it performs well on hard floors and on carpet. Really sucks water up well. As a dry vac, great and powerful, and surprisingly light (when the bag is not full). The power tool dust extract function is brilliant and fits directly onto Dewalt tools without any fuss. From start of the job to finish, performs great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Filter clogs up far too easily For work use this works very well until the filter blocks up, which happens very quickly and is very frustrating as this is a good machine but let down by the filters. The suction is reduced dramatically especially when used with a power tool and can then only be used for a short time before changing the filter again. If the filter didn't need changing/cleaning so often then this would be an excellent cleaner and well worth the money, but if you are using it daily for work related cleaning and dust extraction then you will spend more time changing the filter then working :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works a treat The machine itself is great, just what I expected it to be, having a few other Karcher products. Chose this over the more expensive because it's more versatile. The power of the machine is fantastic, light to move around, would be good if it had a brush accessory as standard that's all. Machine great, delivery not so great, first machine delivered damaged, a body exchange was offered, which was refused, so a complete exchange was arranged, dpd did this and turned up on the wrong day, luckily someone was home. Karcher customer service OK, but delivery agent was awful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wished I purchased the WD4 I was toying with this one and the WD4. After speaking with an advisor she reccommended this one. I discounted the WD2 as the reviews say it tipped easily , this does the same. The filter isn"t separate and so cloggs up quickly when not using the bag. It"s also very messy when emptying. The pole and brush feel flimsey when first using but you get used to i have other Karrcher products which are good. This was just a wrong decision on my part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good piece of domestic equipment It would make the machine more attractive with battery power and no cable essential. It does the job well, based on a months usage.
