The Karcher K2 Compact Home cleaner is one of the multifunctional mid-range devices designed for a wide range of home-based cleaning tasks. It combines the high quality of a branded device with a very attractive price of around 100 pounds.
Our top product is able to convince both with the performance and with the scope of delivery. The opinion on this model from Karcher reflects the overall high level of customer satisfaction.
Sophisticated technology from the traditional company
The Karcher K2 Compact Home appears in the brand colours yellow and black. The cleaner is equipped with a 1,400-watt motor and develops the power of up to 110 bar. At the same time, the pressure between 20 bar and the specified maximum level can be infinitely adjusted using a rotary control.
Car and bicycle paintwork, wood and glass should be cleaned with comparatively little pressure, with the stone paved garden paths and terraces or stone borders you can turn the pressure up to full pressure.
The high-pressure cleaner from Karcher consumes around 360 litres per hour during operation at maximum pressure and is able to clean 20 square meters of average polluted surfaces every hour.
With only 4 kg, this model is a real lightweight, so we will not consider the absence of the chassis K2 as a minus point. Only with the length of the high-pressure hose, which is quite scarce with only 4 m, we see the reason for criticism. The cleaner would, therefore, have to be moved more often, which in turn, given the lack of landing gear handling is not exactly easier.
Equipment at upper-class level
The Karcher K2 Compact Home is equipped with a standardized garden hose connection. Like the absolute majority of high-pressure cleaners for private use, this device is also a cold water cleaner – so the water is not warmed up by the cleaner. For the cleaning work around the house and the garden, however, the cold water cleaning is completely sufficient.
In addition to pure water purification, a special cleaning agent can also be added to the water for greater efficiency. For this purpose, the high-pressure cleaner from Karcher is equipped with a suction hose. The advantage of this technical solution is that it is compatible with any detergent packaging. The disadvantage – the device loses mobility, because when changing location also the bottle must be moved extra.
The scope of delivery
The equipment with high-pressure spray nozzles leaves nothing to be desired, because in addition to the nozzle with rotating water jet – the so-called dirt or dirt cutter – also a nozzle for the flat jet is included. This serves to eliminate relatively slight soiling.
In addition, the scope of delivery also includes the extremely practical surface cleaner – a nozzle with a plastic cover against splashing water. This accessory, as its name implies, is particularly useful when cleaning larger flat surfaces such as terraces or garden paths.
The standard equipment also includes the high-pressure gun and the spray lance. Also, a bottle with 500 ml detergent is included. We think: For a mid-range high-pressure cleaner at a low price, the Karcher K2 Compact Home is quite lavishly equipped, whereby the processing of the accessories as well as the handling are completely convincing.
