Kracher has yet again surprised me with its all-new pressure cleaner, which is powerful, reliable and easily portable. I found out that karcher k3 follow me is much more powerful and durable than the normal garden hose that we all usually use.
Karcher K3 Follow Me Pressure Washer Review
Although this washer is powerful enough, I believe that the water release rate isn’t that high, being only 1.3 GPM.
But here’s a catch:
Kracher has the most efficient and useful power washer wands, namely Vario Power and DirtBlaster which helps to conserve water.
Like every other karcher pressure washer, it has an N-Core pump which is resilient to corrosion. Even though I found the hose size much smaller than my expectations, it is big enough to clean a 7500 square feet area.
Here’s the deal:
The uniqueness of this electric power washer is defined by its ‘Follow-Me’ Design. This one-of-a-kind power washer uses four wheels with the front one steerable unlike the usual set of two. This eases the movement of the spray hose and results in smooth operation, which avoids running back and forth for the hose length.
I also liked the flat and compact design of the model. Due to its portable and small boxed structure, it becomes easier to store. The height only goes up to 13 inches, which make it easier to fit it into the lower shelf of your work garage. Doesn’t that sound interesting?
That’s not all…
Karcher k3 weighs only 15 LBS which made me more inclined towards the product since it is easier to store and manoeuvre.
