Product Overview



A light-duty pressure washer, this unit is perfect for a do-it-yourselfer with limited space and/or budget. Good for washing vehicles, cleaning patio furniture, spraying off fences and other small household jobs.
The K 5.690 is built to last. Made with an extra durable pump borrowed from Karchers professional line of pressure washers, this unit can withstand the rigorous demands of frequent use and delivers an amazing 2,000 PSI, more than 37 times as much pressure as a typical garden hose. Much quieter than a gasoline pressure washer and certified by CSA International for safety, the K 5.690 is perfect for demanding residential use. This model comes with a built-in hose reel, the ultimate solution for convenient, hassle-free storage of the high-pressure hose. The hose reel does double duty by protecting the high-pressure hose during storage. If you clean often, value durability and demand professional level cleaning results, you owe it to yourself to check out the K 5.690.
  • Integrated hose reel neatly stores and protects high pressure hose
  • Onboard detergent tank makes cleaning with detergents such as Karcher's SoapPacs a snap
  • Total stop function on trigger gun: Motor only runs while you spray, reducing noise and power consumption
  • The DirtBlaster Spray Wand delivers 50% more cleaning power to clean heavily-soiled brick, stone, concrete, metal and other non-delicate surfaces
  • For less intense cleaning, use the adjustable Vario Power Spray (VPS) Wand: Simply dial up the amount of pressure you wish to use and twist to the lowest setting to automatically apply detergent (detergent sold separately)
  • Maintenance-free, induction motor
  • 8 in. wheels for easy maneuverability

      Comments about 2,000 PSI 1.4 GPM Electric Pressure Washer:

      The hose reel handle is a little flimsy, and the wheels don't roll well except on concrete. It is a little ackward to set up, but once you have set it up, it works great. Everything you would expect in a pressure washer.

      Loved the attached detergent dispenser, just attach the hose and you are ready to go. This is the second Karcher power washer I have purchased for my home and they are well worth the investment to keep our concrete driveway, walkway and back porch clean in the mildew months in Florida. Good to prep everything before painting too.
