Kärcher Wet and dry Vacuum Cleaner WD 5 reviewed

For heavier jobs it is good to have a more robust vacuum cleaner. Dyson are very popular with our testers, but they can be a little fragile sometimes too, both in terms of their build and also their operating parts. For our testers with heavier cleaning loads, we’re talking building dust from cutting lintels, sawdust and general home renovation debris a product like this one offers more robustness and less likelihood of breaking the actual product itself.

Out of the box our testers found it easy to set up, easy to fire up, and to use. They found that worked well, and they were happy with how it performed. Naturally filters and wear and tear are elements that are harder to assess from an initial usage, but ongoing testing should give us more of an idea of the durability of the product too. For a new company and company it seems like a good entrant into the market and it is one that we will keep an eye out for.

We would have added a demo video, but the last videos added to their YouTube channel were eight years ago. This is something they might want to fix and probably reboot asap. As with all products and their promotion it makes sense to have an integrated marketing strategy going forwards. Maybe it’s coming down the line?
