Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but couple of little niggles.. Bought this to replace a 30yr old Henry...This is obviously a much better product,delivery from Karcher was excellent,design in terms of accessories and attachments is really good....suction is very good....However. ..1.Power lead is nowhere near long enough for the average drive without an ext cable...2.wheels while allowing easy movementer do not have a brake,as such if your drive has even the meerest incline you will find yourself chasing the vacuum..3.The suction is so good that the car attachment head actually bends in the centre,in effect cutting off the suction to the main part of the attachment....apart from that,perfect!

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 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, but lightweight to handle I bought this a month ago to replace an old other brand product for use in the garage and dirty jobs in the house. So far it is a vast improvement and cleans the car well and I have ordered accessories to clean the wood-burning stoves.

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.
