Karcher K4 Compact Review

Buying a new pressure washer can be a bit of a head scratching moment, there are so many to choose from, where do you actually start?  Well I would suggest the Karcher K4 would be a very good place to start.

Is the Karcher K4 any good?

Well hey say a picture paints a thousand words so I am going to let you see for yourself just how awesome this machine really is:


That took no effort at all and less than five minutes.

I have had that sun dial for 13 years.  It was a house warming present from my parents when I moved into my house, post divorce,  and I remember making sure we found the perfect spot for it when Mr B and I moved out of that house and into this one.    And as much as I love it for all that it symbolises it had never occurred to me to clean it.

Until now.   And now it looks brand new.

Is the Karcher K4 good enough to clean a patio?

Again, if a picture paints a thousand words, here is a video that shows you just how well the Karcher K4 cleans a patio.

And then a quick jet wash to blow away the dirty water and you are left with this:

Patio cleaned with Karcher

Ten years that patio has been untouched and we didn’t think it looked too bad. I know that sounds ridiculous given the difference but it just looked as we assumed a ten year old patio would.   Weathered.   Much like myself.

We had no idea that in less than an hour and without the need for any elbow grease it could look like that.
