The Karcher K5 pressure washer is perfect for nearly any houselhold cleaning project, whether it be washing the outside of a large home, to cleaning your driveway or patio, to even cleaning your car, boat or RV. It features two detachable spray wands: The Dirt Blaster for extra cleaning pressure, increases your cleaning power by up to 80 percent, which is ideal for surfaces such as brick, concrete, and metal; and the Vario power spray wand, which enables you to combine pressure with detergent to deep clean even the dirtiest projects. It’s heavier than most units, weighing in at about 28 pounds, but you get the feel this is a genuine step up from the lower budget pressure washers on the market in terms of build quality and performance. You will easily notice the difference even with the larger than normal highly durable wheels, which feel robust and make it easy to move the pressure washer around as needed.

The Karcher K5 pressure washer also comes equipped with a child safety lock, ensuring that a small children can’t accidentally operate it when you are not present. When you’re finished and ready to store it, you can easily reel in the 25 ft. hose with its built-in hose reel, and though it is larger than some of the other budget models in our pressure washer reviews , it is still plenty compact enough to tuck away in the corner of your garage or storeroom, ready for the next job.

A solid all-rounder that packs significant cleaning pressure with an array of accessories for making your life easier, all from a name that has been at the forefront of this market for many years. While the price tag is more than the entry level models reviewed, the Karcher K5 is a deserving winner of the Editor’s Choice award from reviewist.com
