OK, let’s get started…
With the Kärcher WD 2 Vacuum you can finish any job you find difficult in a matter of minutes and without much effort.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes it so special.
1. Wet and dry filter
The Kärcher WD2 loves any challenge and allows you to clean both wet and dry surfaces without having to stop and change the filter every time.
Using the switches on the floor nozzle you can easily switch from wet to dry mode.
You can use it in the car, garden, garage and after DIY projects as the high suction power (180 Air Watts) can pick up almost anything, from sawdust, to sludge and water spills.
2. Practical accessory storage
One of the most important things people ask themselves when buying a household appliance is “Where will I find the place to store it?”
Well, with the Kärcher WD2 you no longer have to worry about that.
It’s smaller than most vacuum cleaners and it’s compactly designed to save as much space as possible.
It also comes with an on-board compartment where you can store the suction hose, connection cable and accessories.
3. “Pull&Push” locking system
Gone are the days of struggling to open your vacuum cleaner for emptying and cleaning the filter.
To open the Kärcher WD2, you just need to pull the clasps and remove the top.
When you’re all done, just put the top back on and push the clasps to close it.
Very simple and effective, but I do wonder if the clasps could become brittle over time and snap or get easily warped. This hasn’t happened, just a thought.

What are People Saying…?
Customers’ love for this vacuum cleaner increases with every use. The Internet is full of praise for the WD2.
They love how easy it is to carry around while still being powerful enough to suck anything in its way.
What can i say, this has to be the best hoover I’ve ever had honestly it’s fantastic. The suction is brilliant and has never changed from when I bought it, it’s light so easy to pull around or carry. The price is brilliant for a good Hoover. Would definitely recommend, I can’t praise it enough. – Sam
Most of the users are amazed by the incredible value and say “it cleans as good as vacuums 3 or 4 times the price”.
What’s the Downside…?
Some of the users have complained about the vacuum cleaner tipping over easily.
However, that’s due to its lightweight design which is one of the best features of the Kärcher WD2.
All you need to do is be careful not to pull it around too heavily.
Little flimsy but with careful handling, a little gem. Do not drag around and get complacent, it will fall over. On the plus side it’s very light and the suction is very powerful so job done in ten minutes. – Chrissy

Is it Suitable for You..?
This vacuum cleaner is just the thing you need if you don’t want to do heavy lifting while vacuuming.
It’s incredibly lightweight and easy to move around, so much that you might not even notice it. However, don’t let the light design fool you, the suction power on this vacuum is incredibly high.
Perfect for any DIY enthusiast as it can make cleaning all the mess after you’re done seem like a breeze.
The bottom line…
Kärcher have again outdone themselves with this model. You can use it for maintaining your car, your home and your garden without worrying about damaging it.
Combining all of these features in a single product with that price might seem like a joke, but believe me it’s not.
It’s hard to see past the WD2 if you are looking for something you can use every day without breaking a sweat.
