Our 5-Series line offers the most durable electric pressure washers for the home! The K 5.540 is built to last and can withstand the rigorous demands of frequent use. It features an innovative, patented water-cooled induction motor that delivers better performance and a longer life. The K 5.540 generates an amazing 2,000 PSI, up to 40 times as much pressure as a typical garden hose.
Based on feedback from our customers, we equipped this top-of-the-line model with a built-in pressurized hose reel, the ultimate solution for convenient, hassle- free storage of the high pressure hose. We also included a quick connect system to reduce your startup time by up to 75% and an onboard detergent tank to make it easy to clean with detergents.
Much quieter than a gasoline pressure washer and certified by CSA International for safety, the K 5.540 is perfect for demanding residential use. If you clean often, value durability and demand professional level cleaning results, check out the K 5.540 today!
