Same, I cleaned my concrete patio, K2000 is way better than the cheap power washer I had before.

Which gun did you buy? Did you also replace the hose and fittings? I'm feeling a little clueless as to what to buy to avoid the inevitable leaking...

Clearly you can see the hard water calcium build up in the water inlet and outlet that's still left inside and around the surface. The water outlet threads a bit corroded.

Damn that's tough. Was the retail box previously opened? Expecting mine shortly.

I bought this gun:

This wand (not needed if you don't care about a wand):

Two piece sets of these:

And this:

With the K2000 you can't replace the hose but I added on one I already had to the end. Should cause less wear on the included one.

Yes and refunded via PayPal. Apparently the address didn't match the order even though most websites I've used PayPal to pay with let me select where to ship on the PayPal payment page(I think). They were nice enough to also tell me just too bad the coupon is over.

Ordered June 23, cancelled and refund June 28.



Edit: turning into a boomer and forgot how to quote someone.

Thank you :)

Is the wand that comes with it compatible with the PA gun? What's the benefit of the wand?

Honestly I haven't even taken the karcher one out of the plastic but if it's like my other ones I've had included it's likely a different thread. You could get an adapter but the wand is $16 so I don't know how much you'd save.

Did you reach out to them?

Mine has the hard water calcium build up, but everything else looks brand spanking new. Soap container looks new as well.

Same for me. Calcium build up and scraped up power cord. Everything else looks new, all accessories in sealed plastic bags.
I sent them email, waiting for reply.

Typically 40. I'll use the 15 occasionally on some bugs or wheel wells but you have to be careful on the paint.

Edit: just realized the k1800 doesn't come with a 40. You for sure don't want to use the power nozzle. Use the 15 but don't get super close.
