If there’s one thing the British public likes, it’s bright yellow home appliances that look like Minions or Bob the Dalek Builder. And that goes a long way to explaining the popularity of the Karcher WD2 vacuum.
It is, of course, more than just good looking. It’s multi-functional and powerful, while being reliable and energy-efficient at the same time.
It’s designed to work on as many types of floor as possible, and can serve as a dry or wet vacuum cleaner depending on your preference. Karcher market it as an ergonomically designed solution for home cleaning.

Product Features & Technical Details
The vacuum cleaner measures 0.369 by 0.337 by 0.43 metres. It is compact enough to be carried anywhere around the house. Take note that it is also pretty light at just 4.6 kilograms. It has a 12 litre capacity.
Some other features are:
Compact Design. Since it is smaller than regular vacuum cleaners, it is very flexible to use. Short on storage space? Here’s an option. It also has an onboard compartment for the connection cable, suction hose, and accessories, so you won’t have to go looking for them in that drawer where you keep all the batteries and Allen keys.
Pull & Push Locking System. By either pulling or pushing, you can promptly open or close the container.
Wet and Dry Vacuuming. With its capability to work as a wet or dry vacuum, you will be able to pick up any dirt, such as sludge, rubber, spills, or sawdust.
Extension Tubes. It comes with extension suction tubes so you can clean even hard-to-reach places, such as ceilings.
Crevice Tool. The purpose of its nozzle is to clean the difficult to access areas as well, such as cracks or gaps.
The first thing to note is the price. That informs everything else. For a very low price you get a well-designed, powerful tool that can do a lot of tasks around the home. The suction is pretty good and makes short work of most things you are likely to throw at it.
On the downside it’s pretty noisy, but most of the products we review are.
This guy might be out of focus half the time but we agree with everything he says:
- Applicable for wet and dry vacuuming
- Works on all dirt types
- Powerful suction
- Compact design
- Tips over when used
