Karcher Window Vac 2 Premium WV2 $98 @ The Good Guys (Price Matched at Bunnings for $88.20)

110

On my hunt at bunnings for the Nu-Tec Powerboard I came across the Karcher window vac which I've been eyeing off for a little while. A friend recommended this a while ago and has a rather large house and said it is more than enough, thus not to worry about the NSCK or other more expensive versions as this does the job very well and then some!

Bunnings had them reduced to $119 so the OzBargainer I am wanted to refresh my memory and do some googling, to which I found The Good Guys currently have them for $98. Reasonably good price but the price match makes it a great buy in my eyes.

Price matched at Bunnings yields a final sale price of $88.20. Of note, bunnings also have the Black version but this didn't affect the price match in any way.

Happy Shopping!

    I bought this and for me it just was not effective. Spoke to a mate who I discovered also bought one and his experience was the same.

    Unless others who have used it pipe up here to disagree, I would save your money!

      Ive used one at a family members place and it was pretty good imo. That said, that family member is a bit of a clean freak and their windows were fairly clean already.

        I'm thinking as much also. Obviously if they're fairly scaley and dirty in general, I wouldnt expect this to work miracles.

        I'll report back soon!

      I'll be giving mine a test run tomorrow, happy to report back. I was skeptical and my friend is relatively tight so I daresay he wouldn't be spending this kind of money lightly.

      We have plenty of windows, so I'm hoping it works as intended, otherwise I'll just return it. No loss.

        Don't just evaluate whether it works - evaluate whether it works better than the traditional way.

      I have one (first gen?), and I found it completely useless. Attempted to use it once, but honestly I cannot see it add any benefit to the normal process of cleaning a window. If anything, the process gets slower as this thing is so big. And how do you clean near the bottom without holding this thing upside down to avoid knocking the bottom windowsill?

      A typical example of a gadget invented for the sake of it.

      I bought one for the miss (clean freak :D) and she's very happy with that!!

      V2 is heaps improved

    Can’t see it being any better than this (was $10)….which works fine. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/371173

        Vac works fine,noting it doesn’t clean, it just takes the excess water of after spraying and washing. Kind of pointless still, much easier and better to wash, squeegee, then wipe down with a cloth than use the vac. All of them are gimmicky. And to spend $90 on one……ridiculous.

    Window vac? Damn. Anyone seen any electro bum-scrubs? I’ve been wanting to get some cordless personal hygiene equipment…

    Discretionary spend at its best :)

    For anyone with Good Guys Commercial access its $88 standard by the looks on there…

    I used this exact model at xmas time. It's true, it doesn't give as good a clean as traditional methods but I liked it on an 80/20 basis. When you've got 50m of frameless glass pool fencing, I found this to be a lot quicker at getting the glass pretty clean and have since gone out and bought one for myself. The perfectionist in me doesn't rate it, but the lazy bloke in me likes it enough for $100.

      How to you rate a bucket and an articulated squeegee on a pole? How is that gear not easier (forget quality of the result)?

  •  

    Price matched this yesterday at Bunnings for the black version.

    Its definitely magnitudes more quicker to use this to clean glass doors, windows etc than the more manual approach. The end result is better than I could with the usual by-hand approach. I've put off cleaning the frameless glass pool fencing as it takes ages so will try that next.

  •  

    I heard since you have to manually spray anyway that this does pretty much jack sit

  •  

    No price match for me! Was told: "the codes don't match" and that was that :/

    Guess we're going to the Good Guys then!

      Maybe try your luck at a different bunnings if it is at all convenient. I can even send you a copy of my receipt if you'd like.

        Thanks mate but I'm off to get one from HN, sale is still on there if anyone is still looking :)

    Just scored one at my local Bunnings with the price match + 10% ($88.20)!
    I have the classic, but the battery is going after 3 years of use…

    My advice on using this, is not to use the supplied detergent spray bottle and and micro-fibre cloth - they're useless and you waste too much time and effort.
    I use this window cleaning solution mixed to instructions; wash down windows with one of these washers; then use the Karcher window vac on the wet windows; wipe any excess water from window frame with a cloth. I clean some massive windows this way and its perfect every time, and much quicker.
