I got mine as a father's day gift June 2012. Two years later, I need to replace it, mainly because I cannot find the replacement parts for the leaking motor. It was used 8 times tops before the GFCI plug died. (Official Karcher replacement part: $120) I re-wired a stock GFCI plug from Home Depot for $30 and was off to the races. The next day after a couple hours work, the housing started leaking and the pressure was cut in half, so it hardly cleaned anything. I took it apart (against all recommendations) because I can usually fix things like this, and IDed what is leaking, but when I go online, there are NO parts for the 5.540 available. The 5.740 (very similar if not the same, but who can tell?) seems to have parts but the motor alone is $420. For a $275 machine? There's something very weird going on here. What a waste of money. Sadly, it seems like the best on the market filled with crummy residential pressure washers so I might buy one again and use the old one for replacement parts when the new one inevitably breaks. Or just pay somebody else to clean my sidewealks.... Very disappointed with this product.
Hook up hose and plug it in...wonderful
good quality and quiet , i wish it was a bit stronger( at concrete cleaning jobs) driveway etc. i mean it cleans it but you have to keep the tip close to surface you working on . on the other hand it doesn't destroy the wood let's say fence / siding .overall i thing it's a great job .hose connection could've been a bit more solid.
but still recommend it
I love the karcher brand,what you pay for is what you get..Also i love the way that the company stands behind the product,regarding any issues or questions you may have.....
This power washer was easy to use and did a great job on my flagstone patio. The patio now looks like it did the day I had it installed. Easy for me (a petite female) to handle.
