For what its worth I have had 4 Karcher power washers. I like the design
and how they function but they are not reliable. It's interesting that they
have a decal on the side of the unit promoting their "No Hassle Exchange
Program" What company do you know advertises the fact that they have a
special plan to exchange a product. It's like they know their products are
going to fail and they do.
After my first purchase and exchange I gave up and bought a new unit. After
a year it failed and they sent out another unit. It arrived and would not
work properly! Now they are sending a second exchange unit. Great service
but the fact of the matter is their products just don't stand up.
When I called the company to register my concern they were really not
interested and basically said well that's your opinion.
