not bad for money


I have bought this vac for renovation work we are undertaking. Agree with other reviews in relation to being quite noisy but other than that have not had a issue really. Suction is fine and as per previous if hose blocks you can just switch to blow and...

Very good.


Very satisfied with the product. Vacuums very well. Works good in all surfaces, light and rolls very easily. But a bit too loud and the wire could be longer, but those disadvantage are not fundamental. Worth the price and I recommend it. Works well in...

Waste of Money


Looks tough and durable but that's about it, had one last about 5 months,replaced under warranty,the second one lasted about the same,took it back for warranty and was told it would not be warranted because it had pet hair in it. It was only used...

Money for value


It does exactly as you want, plenty of suction. I found it works better with the bag in as it does't loose suction until its full. sometimes things get stuck in the hose, easy fix just put the hose on blow and presto hose is clear. money for value for...

Absolutely useless for a 1200w motor. Extremely bad suction with or without the paperbag. Definitely would not recommend after many years in this industry. Only used a few times. Wish I could get money back. Did give it away, but they brought it back...

Bought a Karcher from Bunnings, went back later for dust bags only to be told that they didn't support the product. Machine worked well for some time using a machined cloth bag. Eventually the hose started breaking down and then it just burnt out. The...

Looks sometimes.


Karcher call this a Workshop Vac...which is what I bought it for, but it gets clogged very easily as the inlet shield is badly designed, so even dry wood shavings will clog it up quickly, same thing trying to vacuum a few leaves that had blown in the...

Not worth for the quality and service


I bought a new one from bunnings last year thinking that karcher is good brand, But to my surprise it turned out to be a disaster. Design does not match to its capacity, size too bulk, lacks mobility, too big for storage. Hose is inferior which can...

Gutless piece as soon as it gathers the slightest amount of anything small or large, fine or slightl


Noisy, no room for the bag to bulge/enlarge inside the canister, so loses any power it does have, pretty quick due to this. I just went for the Karcher name - should have done my homework first

Great for household with pets


For $100 this vac does a great job of picking up cat hair on carpet. I replaced an old vac worth hundreds which couldn't handle the job. Noise levels are fine and wheels easily. Could use a longer cord though.
