      The Karcher Thread

      Gentlemen - Looks like Karcher is in India or they have been here for a while. I was browsing their India website and found many products very interesting but they don't list the prices online. If anybody has bought anything Karcher, please post the reviews here or if you have any knowledge about their products - do share. I am personally interested in their Vacuum Cleaners, Steam Cleaners and Pressure washers.

      I have had a Kärcher Pressure Washer since 1990 (80 bar was the best then). It is stilll going strong. I bought a drain cleaner of another brand (I di not remember, but the unit used to be sky blue) and all the top layer PVC cover is gone. I had to fabricate a small adapter to make it fit of the Kärcher. The only thing gone is the mesh on the small filter for the detergent feed.

      Karcher has been here for quite a while. I've been eyeing their vacuum cleaner. The steam cleaner is also very interesting.
      blackhorn also has Karcher pressure washer & both him & sgiitk sir have posted reviews in the pressure washer thread IIRC.

      Supernaut Mach Power Tools is an authorized karcher dealer/distributor. Their store is in Parrys (near Beach station). A couple of weeks ago baranjil, Lvramanan and I were there to check out some products. The person there was willing to talk & answer your queries and display products (compare to the other shops who are usually very reserved in that area).

      Yes Karcher is available locally for sometime. Earlier Flipkart used to keep most of the items. You might be able to source it at a better price from snapdeal whenever they run any offer. Karcher Pressure washers used to be available in Metro Cash & Carry earlier but not sure if they still keep. I have Pressure Washer (K3.550) and Steam Cleaner (Karcher SC 1.020) and pretty satisfied with both.

      K3.550 -- Good Pressure. Can draw water from Buckets but need to pre-fill the hose pipe with water. Probably it is the cheapest water cooled Induction Motor based washer system and it is believed to have longer life. If the car is muddy and sticky, you still need to use sponge/mf/any tool to agitate and loosen the muds/particles. Hose pipe does not come with the product as standard accessory. Comes with a Vario Power Spray wand to adjust the pressure and a dust buster wand. Very easy to fix and pack and store. Has wheels for easier transportation.

      Karcher SC 1.020 - Very nicely built and versatile - can be used on almost all kind of surfaces including glasses. Comes with two mopping towels and few Descaler Sticks. Not sure from where to get replacements of the towels and the Descaler Sticks locally. Planning to use MF towels. Yet to face any scaling issue. Very quick to generate steams. If hot water is used steam generation is much faster. The towels get dirty very quickly in Indian condition after mopping the floors . The surface after mopping is not really steak-free finish.

      I have the same model got it from snapdeal. Its really powerful you can clean you garden floors, parking space etc etc.. Supernaut when i bought I checked with the chennai dealers mentioned in their website they don't stock these Home products they mostly deals with industrial products we'll have to order for the home products and its costlier than snapdeal.

      I just got a K4 Permium today. I pay about 40 US to wash the car every time and decided to invest 15 car washes at once and wash it myself. I will go back to the shop to see if they have one made more for car washes, like and angled lance and foam bottle. The shop gives a 2 year warranty and the factory, another 3 years.
