Details

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.
Features:
  • 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 inch wheels for easy maneuverability
Includes:
  • 2,000 PSI 1.4 GPM Electric Pressure Washer - K5.690
  • 25 ft. Matte Plastic Hose
  • DirtBlaster Spray Wand
  • Vario Power Spray (VPS) Wand

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

      Bought this product for my maintenance department to clean coolant reservoirs, machinery parts, wire filters, ect. Great pressure, lightweight and easy to operate with a low price made it the best looking candidate for us. Sadly the day I received the email to review this product it stopped working. We have not yet found out what is wrong with it but it stopped working completely. As if there is now power going to it. If it is a simple fix I will update this review and give it the appropriate stars. As of now though, 1 star for the (seemingly) poor quality.

      Pros

      • 2000 PSI is just right
      • Easy To Operate
      • Quiet

      Cons

      • Slightly top heavy
      • Snap on Decorative Parts

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

      We used the pressure washer to clean embeded gray mold spots and green moss/mildew from our decks, front porch with decorative white support columns, and siding. The Karcher 2000 PSI provided the perfect pressure with minimal effort; so much so that once my wife tried it and started using the washer she just kept going and going and going, freeing me to do other parts of our project. We were amazed at how much dirt, that we thought was discoloration, actually flowed off our decks and porch surfaces. We used a detergent and the mix setting on the wand is a great feature. With just a quick twist you could go from soap dispensing to full 2000 PSI pressure, or somewhere in between if the full power was too much. I was skeptical at first of the "no changeable tip" design of the wand; However I was pleasantly surprised and liked it much better. No more fumbling with 2-3 tips when up on the extension ladder. This was our first use of the product, and it worked great for 10 hrs one day and 9hrs the next. It felt very solid and capable. I invested several hours researching the various brands, but kept coming back to this Karcher because of the 2000 PSI and the induction/commercial grade motor. Based on the great performance and results, the Karcher 2000 PSI Electric Pressure Washer was the right choice! I would definitely recommend this product. Also, purchasing with CPO was easy & fast and the free shipping a real plus. CPO will be the first place we look for tools and similar products in the future!

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

      Easy to use. Using the dirt blaster the driveway looks great. Using brush to wash car and truck was a little awkward but did a good job. The only real problem/complaint I have is that the wheels are thin plastic. They bend very easy. Have had to be very careful when moving washer. Wasn't as easy as the description said.
