I had an old WV70 which was replaced once, had it two years in total. When it packed up I went through this outlet and got a WV2. Never again. They do come with a 12month warranty, and it’s a good job. I’m on my 4th, the third one packing up 2 days before the warranty expired.

Whilst it is cheap, even if you only get a year out of it it’s just over £2 a month to save for another refurb. The hassle of 5-7 days without one (I use mine daily in the bathroom) whilst the old one is being collected and the ‘new’ refurb being delivered just isn’t worth it. Strike while the iron is hot if you see a new one on offer (only good if you can afford it, I know), but I’d never buy refurb from them again. Even my brother is on his second WV2 from the outlet.

Karcher don’t seem the brand they once were: my Dad has a Nilfisk pressure washer which is old and functioning like it was new: if they branche into Wet-Vacs I’d drop Karcher in a heart beat (1st world problems eh?!).

The outlet sent me this in a big box, with all the pieces just rattling around, with the potential for damage. For £4.99 I'd expect the pieces to be at least wrapped.

I contacted them to moan....they told me where to shove the Karcher

Nice find @JohnBUK , thanks for posting
Is this going to be plus £4.99 delivery on 14th? Because at the moment it's £24.99 plus £4.99 delivery. Total £29.98, not such a bargain!!

Karcher are always on offer for a little bit more money like £30 you can get a brand new one if you take your time and look quite recently Wickes was selling them for £5 brand new in the box......
Cold... it's 29.99 including delivery! For a refurb
You can pick up the Vileda equivalent brand new at this price
As well as cleaning windows I get more use removing condesation and run this down shower room after shower.

I use mine 2 or 3 times a year to clean the windows with.. probably no more than 30 minutes use a year.. had it 5 years and it’s still going strong...
The same WV2 died on me after 7 months of light use - stopped charging.
Returned it for a refund.
That's probably reincarnation of my one, the only difference is limited/no warranty, lost money.
Good luck with it.

It does say above, offer is for 1 day only - Wednesday.
No doubt people have different experiences with these refurbs but I have had 2 items from the Karcher Outlet store now, this one some 2 years and the Karcher K2 pressure washer for a similar period. Both still work fine.

This is a known problem with the Vileda. Left mine off charge last summer and when I went to charge it again nothing. They likely use the same battery.
This needs editing to include the £4.99 postage.

I did not mention Vileda btw, it was Karcher. And Salter one died similarly, and not because of off charge - I used them both regularly.
My Vileda goes strong since September, still within 1 year warranty from Currys I presume.
U can get new for 38 quid Amazon 2 years warranty delivered

I had very similar experience, got one, it broke on second use, replacement was broken from the start.
I've had mine for just over 4 yrs never once had a problem, I borrow it out 2 my friends as well as using it myself. It's the best thing since sliced bread, saves hours of valuable time especially doing windows, I honestly couldn't be without mine now.

This!

The condition they send them in is horrible, the first two arrived damaged and looked like someone had been hammering them for fun and the third one I received had a mouldy plug and bottle so they re-sent those.

Its a great product but I would never buy from their outlet store again. Customer service is useless and the condition of the product is crazy considering they 'professionally refurbish' each one, literally looks like someone threw a few parts on a box, sent it to me and hoped for the best.
I had the WV2 - my first karcher - highly awkward to remove and replace dirty water bottle. It eventually broke, when I tried to suck up a spillage of juice, and has never worked since. Wouldn't buy this one again, although I liked what it did when it was working for glass surfaces. Also battery life was terrible. The water tank fills up very quickly then spits the dirty water all over your hands to let you know when it's full!

I would strongly recommend looking at a new model, which I believe has been redesigned and easier to switch out the water, and better battery life.
The fact they will be selling returns/refurbs put me off buying even a new one. The durability must be poor.

Water and microfiber cloth. Enough said. I've self diagnosed OCD in past so this could be my worst nightmare and lead to a Shark vacuum with headlights.

Yes, I accept that, but I received the email from Karcher two days ago and they made no mention of postage. Obviously as this was a deal for one day only, today, I couldn't determine if postage was included or not.
Apologies to all. John
