Product Description

The NEW K 5.540 electric pressure washer from Karcher, the top of the line unit in the X-Series range. This 2000 PSI model features a unique, patented water-cooled induction motor that delivers superior performance and a longer life. Only Karcher offers the advanced combination of water-cooled technology with a powerful induction motor. Equipped with two spray wands, the K 5.540 is able to tackle any cleaning project around the home. For tough jobs, attach the included DirtBlaster Spray Wand to increase the effective pressure by up to 50-Percent.

Fully, equipped with quick connect, the K 5.540 reduces your start up time by up to 50-Percent. It even includes a quick connect adapter for your garden hose, eliminating the hassle of threading the hose on each time you want to clean. This model also comes equipped with an onboard detergent tank that makes detergent application a snap. Simply fill the tank with pressure washer detergent, attach the VPS spray wand, select the low pressure setting and apply the detergent to the area you wish to clean. The K 5.540 features an upright, ergonomic design, is easy to maneuver and operate. You can even draw water from a standing source, a feature that comes in handy when a water faucet isn't available (optional accessory required).

I bought the K5.540 because it seemed to be the best brand name electric available. A good gas was $450 +. The price, size, weight, noise, winter storage, convenience aspects, along with the lack of gas engine maintenance were deciding factors. I've used it four times so far. Pressure is adequate for around the house. Indeed, too much pressure can be damaging. The downside is that it's an upright, prone to falling over especially on uneven surfaces. The second time it did so, the supplied plastic female quick connect hose fitting on the water inlet broke... only available from Karcher, I suspect. Other reviewers have mentioned this across the cloud. My solution was a big box store fitting called "swivel hose adapter". Made by Watts # A-661 GH1. It's 3/4 female pipe thread on one side and 3/4 female garden hose thread on the other. It fits the 3/4 FIP male water inlet on the machine & the 3/4 male on your garden hose. It eliminates ordering a bag of replacement fittings from Karcher for repetitive breakage when the machine falls over and you can still use a commonly available quick connect system. As for the rest of the experience, it's good on siding, vehicles, floor mats, and anything porous such as concrete or brick. More pressure from another machine will give you more area of application at greater distance and of course more potential for damage. I've heard your standard manual car wash is 4000 psi. Even this machine's 2000 psi will dig holes in wood. The 25' high pressure hose has proved short occasionally. My only worry is what the life of the many o-rings might be. Overall longevity remains to be seen. Other than those concerns, I've been pleased with the design and performance and keep encountering new uses. It's becoming as valuable to me as my air compressor and leaf blower. Spray away.

See my "UPDATE" at the bottom. Like many of the reviewers I have had a few of the electric pressure washers. The first one I had was a Generac 1800 PSI unit. It was a hand carry item with a long power cord and a variable rubber coated metal wand. It wasn't on wheels but was a very solid unit with a good amount of pressure behind it. If I could find another I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I put it through its paces and my teenage sons abused it. I even drove over it when they left it behind my car. It is still working today as I gave it to my youngest son after about 12 years of use but is probably now working around 1600 psi. Why all the talk about this one you ask? Well, like I said I have had others as well since giving the Generac away and the claims of high pressure don't quite meet with what that old one did nor do they take the abuse.

This K5.540 Karcher comes with two wands. The variable pressure one is just that. A fan pattern that decreases in pressure verses one with the same pressure that varies in width. This one allows you to siphon soap but only when the pressure is reduced to open hose flows. The other wand is a single stream turbo wand which means you don't get a straight shot at what you want to clean. It spins the stream in a cone shape from the tip of the wand outward. That does have its purposes I suppose but isn't what I'm used to. Neither wand seemed to produce the pressure of that first Generac I had that was slated at 1800 PSI verses this one at 2000 PSI. Interestingly enough I bought a single stream kit from Amazon with orifices for different pressures for this washer. I installed the 1800 PSI one and this Karcher oscillated on and off because the pressure increase would shut the machine off. Hmmmm!

I really got sick of borrowing my buddy's 3000 psi gas-powered monster several times a year for small chores, so I did a little research and figured out any gas-powered washer in my budget wouldn't last very long. Many have pumps rated in the 20-40 hour range and other cheap amenities. In order to get one which would last for years (at least on paper) it would have cost around $600-800. I have always heard how "weak" electric washers were, but thought maybe the technology has evolved and included them in my search. After all - the extent of my cleaning needs are the garage floor, patio furniture, concrete patio preparation for sealant every other year, and my vehicle. I don't need to blast industrial grease off a M4 Sherman Tank, so I thought I would be okay with a lower-psi unit.

My original choice was the top-rated Rockford CPU0207 2,000 PSI 1.6 GPM Electric Pressure Washer here on Amazon. It was significantly cheaper and higher-rated. The ONLY reason I opted to go with the Karcher K 5.540 was because of the Karcher 2.640-959.0 Pressure Washer T-Racer Wide Area Surface Cleaner T100 accessory. It was a must have for my garage because I didn't want to blast water all over the drywall and flat paint; I merely wanted a clean floor with minimal splashing. Of course, this Karcher accessory ONLY fits the self-proclaimed "bayonet" set-up unique to Karcher. It wouldn't work with any other pressure washer brand :sigh: The other brand surface cleaner accessories were rated poorly, so I didn't want to take the chance.

I ordered my pressure washer on Sunday evening and received it Monday afternoon - YES, the NEXT day! Like a giddy college kid going to his first pub I set it up and got to work.
