Karcher Drain & Gutter Cleaning Kit
Did what was needed.
Bought to clear a drain. Next day delivery was handy.
The drain itself was an old clay drain with a u trap. This made it difficult to start with as the pipe is quite stiff so struggles to go around bends... but it needs to pretty stiff so you can push it up the drain to the blockage so it is a compromise. It took a lot of coaxing but eventually got there. If the drain was a straight run I am sure it would have been a lot easier.
The value is marked as low as it seems a lot for a hose with a nozzle on the end.
20m is quite a bit of hose so I would consider getting a reel to put it onto to keep tidy.
I'm sure I'll need it again so it will save the expense of calling out a pro'

Not good enough to do the job
I bought this and a brand new K4 to try and unblock my drain pipe. It wouldn't even touch it. I had to call out Drain Doctor after wasting my money on this product. It would probably be ok to unblock a pipe with leaves clogging it up, but any serious blockage and this just won't do it I'm afraid.

Karcher Drain & Gutter Cleaner
Bought this kit and the hose was a nightmare.
It must have been in its box coiled up for a long time as it refused to loose its memory of being in the box.
Although It was quite good for cleaning drains when it came to the gutters this was another rather wet matter.
No one tells you that the sled device is a bit to wide for even the latest wide deep guttering used today in the UK.
During use the sled wants to climb out the guttering. It no way works like the picture on the box with the guy dressed up. You get drowned. My loss another 70 Quid down the drain! It is now clashed in the back of my workshop never to be used again

Very useful item
Got this to clear drain at back of house which runs through to main drain at front
Due to its position it does get blocked easily and in the past have paid to have it unblocked
This machine unblocked in 15 mins - this included time for setting it up and giving it a thorough clean. Will save me money
