Description

The Kärcher K 2 Entry is lightweight and compact enough to be stored in a crowded garage or car trunk, with on-board storage for the wands. (source: Kärcher (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Kärcher K2 Entry

The Kärcher K2 Entry, a light duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Kärcher K2 Entry in use

The Kärcher K2 Entry

With a 10 amp universal motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 1600 PSI (roughly 27 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.35 GPM (CETA-certified values), resulting in the Kärcher K2 Entry's cleaning power of 2160 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the K2 Entry is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L19.7 x W6.9 x H12 in, the Kärcher K2 Entry makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the K2 Entry convenience of transport. The handle is molded in the frame to ensure that it will never fall apart.

Since the unit weighs only 10.6 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. This light weight compensates for the fact that the K2 Entry doesn't have any wheels, as it's not something necessary.

Main Features

Along with the Kärcher K2 Entry itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. Detergent is automatically dispensed when the VPS wand is in low pressure mode.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its VPS wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook. The Vario Power Spray (VPS) wand allows you to conveniently switch from low to high pressure, and everything between, while you clean. Simply twist the end for infinitely variable pressure adjustment.

Other Features

Some of the accessories of the Kärcher K2 Entry

Some of the included accessories

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Kärcher K2 Entry are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as wand, DirtBlaster turbo spray wand (which is especially useful on stubborn dirt), pressure hose, soap hose, power cord and spray gun.

The Kärcher K2 Entry's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher K2 Entry compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Karcher K2 Entry and its 1600 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $120 and $150. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2700-MAX that can reach up to 2100 PSI.
  • In its respective price range, the water flow of this washer, 1.35 GPM (gallons per minute), ranks as average. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Westinghouse ePX3050, which can reach up to 1.76 GPM.
  • As the K2 Entry has a total of 2160 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced electric units. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Westinghouse ePX3050 with its 3572.8 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Karcher K2 Entry is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
