Kärcher K4 Full Control Pressure Washer Review
The Kärcher K4 Full Control Pressure Washer has an adjustable pressure between 20 to 130 bar and is supplied with a Vario and Dirt Blaster spray lance. It has a trolley design with wheels and a telescopic handle for easy transportation and storage. The Kärcher K4 has a flow rate of 420 (max), and is supplied with a 6 metre pressure hose.
Karcher’s K4 is a medium-size pressure washer suitable for cars, terraces, and fences. The high flow rate combined with increased pressure provides the target with a deep clean. And the high level of control means that you can perform the best cleaning without cutting into the surface.

Power / Bar Pressure
The K4 uses a powerful 1800-watt motor that draws 7.5 amps, producing up to 130-bar at the nozzle end. Perfect for getting deep into garden tools and wheel hubs. You can even spread the jet out to clean greater areas at a time.

Hose Flow RateAn impressive 7 litres of water per minute, will flow through the washer at peak performance — when fed from a regular garden hose. You can also add up to 0.3 litres per minute of detergent into the flow. This gives the operator enough flow rate to wash larger flat areas, such as driveways, using Kärcher’s rotating surface cleaner.
A larger motor will make more noise, and the 1800-watt motor will produce up to 90 decibels at the unit. Though a 6-metre pressure hose means that the operator can stand a good distance from the unit, mitigating the noise down to 75 decibels. The motor is also water-cooled, which will extend its lifespan.
Accessories and Use
The basic K4 package comes with a range of accessories, so that you can begin cleaning, the moment you plug it in:
- The Kärcher detergent bottle that plugs into the K4.
- A trigger gun with LED read-out to show the pressure you are running at.
- A telescopic handle with two wheels for ease of transport.
- The Dirt Blaster and Vario Power spray lances.
- A removable water filter to protect the pump.
- A garden hose adaptor.
Practicalities and DesignThe wheels and telescopic handle, and the large carry handle makes a big difference when it comes to moving the machine around. A slot for the detergent bottle to soap up a car keeps the unit tidy. And the LED display is going to help prevent those unfortunate incidents of using full power on your car’s paintwork.
