Expensive, but an excellent investment overall!
I recently decided to invest in the ‘Kärcher K7 Premium Full control Plus Home Pressure Washer’ (my previous washer was a ‘LIDL’s ‘own’ – which is/was actually great, except that the ‘sprayer’ is no bigger than a ‘pin prick’ and so, the user needs plenty of time on their hands – and of course, writing rude words on the dirty slabs was a definite ‘no no’ as it turned out – unless you then have lots of time to carefully delete them!) Overall, I am extremely pleased with the K7 – Kärcher’s reputation would seem to be well deserved. Provided with the washer was: (obviously the washer) plus some free detergent and a’ trigger gun’ with power adjustment buttons and a 1-in-3 multi-use spray lance (this has to be ‘paired’ with the washer, but it is a far more simple process than it would seem, so don’t panic), and a, 1 x T450 Patio Cleaner for large areas of patio and decking. I also purchased (as ‘optional extras’) the: Kärcher Extra Long Angled Spray Lance, a Kärcher Telescopic Jet Pipe, a Kärcher WB100 Rotary Wash Brush, a Kärcher Soft Washing Brush, the Kärcher 1 L, Universal Cleaner Plug and Clean, Pressure Washer Detergent (and a Kärcher 5 L bottle of the same, which can be used to then top up the 1L bottle that you use in the machine). The pressure washer itself, can seem a bit daunting to set up initially (if you’ve not owned one before). The instructions provided are pretty rubbish, but there’s some excellent videos/advice on Google if you get stuck. Once you’re set up, you’ll soon see that it was ‘time well spent’… PRO’S: 1. The washer has various pressure options (dependent on the material you will be washing) plus power/pressure levels – from 1 (soft) to 3 (hard) – great for masonry, stone, slabs, timber etc. It is a learning process at first, but you will soon learn what works best for the material you are working on to ensure as little damage as possible (to timber/loose paint, cement etc). Designed for speed, you will see instant results with relatively little ‘work’, and you can adjust the pressure setting to suit the material you are working on. I couldn’t believe how quickly I was getting jobs done/ seeing results, so a big thumbs up for the speed/efficiency. 2. There is a reasonably long hose attached/included (10m I think) – meaning that you don’t have to lug the machine about any more than is absolutely necessary. 3. It comes with wheels for easy maneuverability (see below). CON’S: 1. This is a seriously heavy piece of kit. I need to take mine up and down stairs etc (balcony’s and so forth) – it’s really hard work!’ If you’re thinking ‘ladders’, you can definitely forget it! 2. It comes with wheels and what is similar to a ‘pully handle’ that you might find on your average suitcase. The ‘pully handle’ is however quite pathetic (it doesn’t hold in place and easily collapses, which renders it pretty useless and it isn’t as easy to tow/pull as it might first seem). You will also need to hold the hose/gun/lance etc when pulling as these will be attached, plus the cable and extension lead as there is nowhere to safely put these without them falling off and to the ground/below the wheels when you are moving the machine from A to B). 3. I have yet to find a use for the ‘1 x T450 Patio Cleaner for large areas of patio and decking’ that is included… what I can tell you as a fact, is that it is absolutely useless for cleaning patio and decking (in comparison to the gun and lance that is also provided). It’s effectively ‘free’ though and so not worth losing sleep over! Notes: Initially, the pressure in the washer (after set-up) may not seem to work – check the lance settings (there is a very ‘wishy washy hose option’ that is weaker than a hosepipe so pretty useless) – mine was set to this on purchase. Also check the pressure settings on the handgun aren’t set to low (1)). Ramp them up to the maximum (3). Also check for air in the washer itself (turn off the water supply and then turn on the washer and depress the lever as though intending to wash something to release any trapped air). Also check for ‘kinks’ in the hose as this will affect the pressure the washer can give out (you’ll soon learn to identify when this is causing an issue). Overall, this is a really impressive bit of kit and it’s hard to be disappointed with it. The range of available accessories is fantastic, adding to the versatility and overall use of the machine. I think you’d be hard pushed to find anything better available on the market (with improvements being made by the manufacturers all the time!) Accessories: Kärcher Extra Long Angled Spray Lance: I really like this – be it short or long distance that you apply it, you won’t be able to see instant results (because you’ll need to shut your eyes to prevent them being blasted with c**p, but you will soon see instant results between applications!) Kärcher Telescopic Jet Pipe: Fantastic ‘reach capability’… you are going to reach the gutters of a two/three storey house easily… unfortunately, the applicator they provide isn’t ‘pressure orientated’ (and so you won’t actually be able to wash off any scum that you can see on your fascias/gutters etc and it’ll do no better job than your average UK rainfall/storm) … I had a brainwave – change the adaptor (which you can easily do) … however … the ‘blow back’ from the pressure is SEVERE (and thus, if it doesn’t blow you over backwards, you almost certainly won’t have the strength to hold/aim it at whatever the problem area.) As such, this particular accessory is kind of useless BUT… if you can reach from e.g. windows to scrub an area with a brush first, then his is useful to wash off any surplus soapy water etc (if you couldn’t do so with an ordinary hosepipe). Kärcher WB100 Rotary Wash Brush: “Okay” but if you can reach with a handheld brush, you’ll be able to do a far better job without wasting detergent. Kärcher Soft Washing Brush: “Okay” but if you can reach with a handheld brush, you’ll be able to do a far better job without wasting detergent. Kärcher 1 L, Universal Cleaner Plug and Clean, Pressure Washer Detergent: It is good (but so is e.g. Fairy Liquid if applied by hand). Does the job but is nothing special. (N.B. The machine will use up the detergent very quickly if it is not removed when not required – so remove when not needed). I would also recommend Kärcher 5 L Canister Pressure Washer Detergent, Universal Cleaner to ‘top up’ as and when required.
Excellent pressure washer
I bought this while it was on a ridiculously great offer, and I’m glad I did! It’s powerful! Very! And with great power comes great responsibility! You MUST remember to lower the pressure down before tackling any fragile surfaces, or working near any! We have gravel near our footpath and if you use full pressure (Safe on stone flags for footpath) but it propels the gravel a few feet away if hit it! Not safe if it ended up hitting anyone nearby, any windows or even parked vehicles! So please do remember to be careful! Also to avoid the unit having any problems or stuttering, insure that your supply hose does not contain any trapped air, easy way to do so is to run water through the hose for a few seconds (Longer for longer lengths of hose) till uninterrupted flow comes out, then plug it into your unit to start renovating your outdoor space! If, or when you have problems with the unit stuttering, my advice is to take the water supply hose off, run the unit on detergent mode as advised on the manual, but also block the inlet valve with a water tight surface (I use my own thumb to do so, it will not hurt you!) This should help the unit to get rid of any trapped air bubbles as you’re making sure no air is sucked into the system. Hope this helps anyone whose having issues with the unit! Otherwise enjoy your great toy!
Quality piece of kit, but heavy and very powerful so needs to be used with care.
Quality piece of kit, but very powerful so needs to be used with care. I've been using it for a couple of months and no problems. Pros Very powerful and controllable. Long (10m) pressure hose saves having to move the machine. Pressure hose drum works well for storing hose. Patio attachment makes path and patio cleaning quicker and stray spraying. Wheels make moving on flat surfaces relatively easy. Multi-lance makes it quick and easy to change spray patterns. Not too noisy given the huge power. Cons So powerful - great care needed to avoid damage to brick work and paintwork and max pressure of 180 psi exceeds the rating of many accessories. Heavy to carry. Needs lots of water. Overall - I recommended this K7 if you really need this amount of power and are careful to control it. However, for most applications a slightly less powerful, lighter and less expensive model would be even better. If I was buying again, I would choose the K5 Premium Full Control Plus Home.

Sturdy piece of equipment.
Prompt delivery fantastic pressure to clean drives . It s heavy but you can wheel it into position. The wand can be changed to different pressures fir different tasks.
Great power! Very small and compact But I don’t like that the hose won’t wrap around the machine properly...keeps falling off
A very useful machine.
This seems to have more pressure than it's replacement, also a K7 compact, That only lasted four years of intermediate use, hope the longevity of this one is better. Having said that it is an excellent machine with sufficient pressure to cope with just about any domestic cleaning. A welcome addition is the cable tidy on the front of the machine which saves the problem of tripping over the cable when in transit. This is my third Karcher pressure washer and would recommend it's purchase.

Efficient Quality Machine.
I know quality when I see and handle it. A premium product that I feel will last and spares will be available in the future should I need any. The rotating brush head cleaned my large patio area in less than an hour where it took a whole morning with my old lance machine. The lance extensions are useful to reach awkward places like the apex of my conservatory roof. They are quick to fit and remove with a push and twist.. The long hose is neatly wound in on a spool making packing away and storage quicker and neater.
Carful with the Patio cleaning Head
Works well with plenty of power, not going to repeat what every other reviews have stated but is worth the extra cash with ease of use and gets the job done quicker with the extra power. I have got a problem with the jet nozzle not spinning hopefully this can be resolved with the supplier. The only caveat I can see long term is the Patio cleaner head which is slightly bigger than the model below it but uses the same the exact same extension arm. When cleaning a drive way or patio I would strongly advise to use it back and forth rather than left to right in order not to weaken the small plastic lock wings that attach to the trigger gun.
Fab, fab, fab
Came next day without Amazon prime. What a great product, it does everything and the extra power makes a big difference . We have an older jet wash and this one is 10 X better. The extra nozzles are good although we didn't find the patio one much good . The solution helped a little but won't buy anymore. It was a great " Man" present and we will have the cleanest patios and drive around.
