The following are a variety of accessories that are designed for Karcher washers. These in most cases will not work with any other brand of pressure washer which is not Karcher.
The Karcher 2.640-746.0 Pressure Washer Extension Wand
This unit is an important consideration amongst available Karcher pressure washer accessories. It comes in very handy when you are pressure washing highly elevated areas. It is in fact popular with Karcher washer owners who have double story homes. It comes in four pieces made of aluminum which can be joined together to reach a 2 story building, for example. In total when connected they reach 66 inches high.
In some cases some users have discovered through hard lessons that this wand is designed for cold water Karcher electric pressure washers and not for heated pressure washers powered by gas. In these cases gas washer users have had to return the wand in disappointment. There is mention of Karcher not manufacturing this wand for gas powered machines at all.
Consumer feedback has been generally positive on this wand mentioning its quick and easy set-up. It is also important to note that this extension wand is for Karcher washers of maximum 2300psi. This Karcher accessory sells for about $50.00 online.
Points of weakness that we have identified on this extension kit is the weight that begins to build up in your arms after continued use on a cleaning job. The design by aluminum is meant to avoid this problem which we suspect could have been worse if material used was any heavier. The second problem have been complaints related to pressure loss. A slight fall in pressure, at least, has been identified by some users when using the extension wand.
The wand has also been criticized for having plastic screw threads for connecting the pieces. There is danger of these wearing out through repeated connections and disconnections. We nevertheless recommend this Karcher pressure washer accessory. It is certainly a good buy.
Some users even buy it when buying a pressure washer. It is possible to use only two extensions instead of all four effectively dealing with the problem of weight. However it might mean not being able to reach certain places and then requiring a ladder.
The Karcher 2.638-792.0 Pressure Washer Sandblasting kit
Yet one of unique Karcher pressure washer accessories, this sandblasting kit works with most Karcher electric washers with a power output of at most 2000psi. Sandblasting is an alternative method used to remove paint and graffiti from walls, for example. It is a delicate operation that often leaves walls and surfaces being blasted badly bruised and requiring resurfacing.
This means this technic should only be applied on suitable surfaces. Due to the danger of using this approach, this kit comes with a set of safety goggles. Users of this kit have generally been disappointed by its performance. According to overall reviews we have considered of this accessory from Karcher the kit does not perform as expected.
This could be an issue of over expectation. Again, things like these are better done by professionally designed machines for the purpose. It sells for about $60.00.

It has a brass connector to your washer which addresses issues of durability. The hose itself is extremely durable made of textile meshwork. Apart from being flexible enough to follow your drainage and blocked pipe contours it is also kink free. The last thing you want is for the hose to kink underground. The measurement markings and rings put on the hose by the manufacturer will help you measure how deep the hose has gone as you clean.
Some users who have used this pipe cleaning kit wish the hose would be longer. However, whilst desirable this might have an impact on final pressure output as your high pressure water has to travel longer before emerging out of the hose.
