  • Piece of Garbage I'll Call it a KARCHER

    Apr 4, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Honda Motor
    Cons: pump-the pump!-KARCHER-the pump!! KARCHER & the pump

    Summary: Ok no doubt about it, the G in the model number stands for garbage! I have had it for 3 years and must tell all you 4 and 5 star reviewers, stop it! Any real owner of this machine knows the pump problem and knows it well. KARCHER was way off the mark and ... read more

    Feb 21, 2010 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Work great! needs a little maintenance
    Cons: My local dealer was worthless! Found the fix online

    Summary: I have an older karcher G2400HB pressure washer. After a year or so it wouldn't spray with pressure unless I removed the spray tip pulled the hand trigger then put the tip back in. Every time I'd let off the hand trigger it required the same routine. ... read more

    Pros: Worked fine for a few hours
    Cons: Can't repair unit without much frustration

    Summary: Just had the worst experience ever talking to Karcherís technical service department. Pressure washer purchased at Costco developed a problem after about 10 hours of use. Unfortunately Iíve had it stored for about 3-years since I donít need it very ... read more

  • Maybe a bargain at this price.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Spiffy yellow color, sturdy construction and cool knobby tires.
    Cons: Would've liked to find one of the Honda models but the 5.5hp B&S works fine.

    Summary: Through a nifty little bait & switch courtesy of a Band of Gypsy tool sellers from the midwest that shall remain nameless I came home with the infamous Karcher G2400HB instead of a recon Coleman that was advertised for 199.00 in their flyer. They claimed ... read more

  • Good Riddens to the yellow nightmare

    Nov 8, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Honda engine starts easily and cart and tires a appear rugged.
    Cons: The pump is a piece of junk. Shame on Karcher!!!!

    Summary: Bought this Karcher Model 2400 2.5 GPM 5 HP pressure for home use from Costco in April 2004. Although the unit appears to be durable and quality built it is anything but. I had problems with it within 2 weeks after taking it home. I had to hold the ... read more

  • Karcher's awful customer service

    Oct 27, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Works fine when it works.
    Cons: Poor quality pumps along with very poor customer service.

    Summary: Karcher has a problem with its unloader valve on its pressure washers - and they know it. When I called the authorized dealer to arrange repair I asked him to guess why I was bringing the unit in for repair. 3 guesses were not necessary. He knew ... read more

  • More Cons than Pros

    Oct 24, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: When the unit is working right, it is enough to tackle most household jobs.
    Cons: Even with proper manitenance engine would not start and also pressure goes out.

    Summary: As it has been stated, this Karcher 2400 is not the most realiable pressure washer in the market. It did a pretty decent job when new, and figuring it had a Honda engine.... it should last for quite a while providing hassle free service. I had this ... read more

    Aug 5, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Overall good design, frame w/ tires; Honda engine; and pressure when working correctly
    Cons: Only the pump's loss of pressure problem described herein

    Summary: I bought the unit new from Costco in Dec. '03; used it many times without issue; once a month or so (home not commercial use). The unit performed very well until just a couple of months ago when it lost pressure. At first the pressure would cycle "off ... read more

  • Works great until it breaks-easy fix not in owners manual

    May 25, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent OHC Honda Engine that starts every time with a single pull.
    Cons: Pump maintenance procedure not covered in the owners manual or on manufacturer's website.

    Summary: I have owned my Karcher 2400 for about 4 years now and it has performed flawlessly up until last night when it intermittently lost pressure and then the pump completely failed. I stumbled upon this website and found that I was not alone and that this ... read more

    Jun 13, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, Honda engine
    Cons: Pump and hose are junk, cheap wand, multi-spray nozzle difficult to set right, failures galore

    Summary: This thing is one of the biggest disappointments I have had with a purchase in some time. It has been a nightmare owning it and I cannot start a project without expecting some sort of problem or failure. The pump failed after the first season which ... read more

    May 30, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Honda engine is nice and easy to start. High pressure worked great.
    Cons: Karcher needs to communicate information. Excellent Honda engine but poor pump design.

    Summary: A friend gave me a 2400 psi Karcher pressure washer but I didn't have much use for it until recently. My new patio had a light surface coating of cement mortar so I used the washer. Unfortunately, it went from high to no pressure with little pressure ... read more

  • Karcher unloader valve fix (worth a try)

    May 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Decent power washer when it works
    Cons: Unloader is almost guarenteed to fail and need work.

    Summary: I am writing this for those that like me CANNOT return their Karcher 2400HH because of time or other issues. The unloader valve has been noted to have problems on this site and others. If you call the service center near you they will probably know about ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None at all!
    Cons: Payed more money for an inferior dangerous product

    Summary: Karcher, three pieces of absolutely dangerous junk I payed more for Karcher because I thought I was buying quality. I bought the electric 1400PSI model and after a couple of months it would not shift into high pressure. Making another stupid decision, ... read more

  • No problems so far

    Sep 29, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, great engine, length of hose, attachments and works great for me.
    Cons: Stiff hose that can kink if you aren't careful.

    Summary: I have to say that I was hesitant to buy this after reading the reviews here and elsewhere, but I downloaded the manual and read it first. There were simple instructions that basically said, if you don't do it this way you won't get pressure or you ... read more

    Pros: It works
    Cons: You might put on a show for the neibors if it gets away.

    Summary: I've had the machine for years. The unloader problem started after about 3 years in. I figured out the problem only after exploratory surgery (kicking myself for not looking it up). After poping the valve & greasing it almost every time I used it ... read more
