Product overview

Visitors coming over? Crumbs in the dining room after dinner? The KB 5 is the perfect interim cleaner for when you don't want to get out the vacuum cleaner!

Fast and effective intermediate cleaning of hard floors and carpets? The perfect job for the KB 5 cordless electric broom.

What if you accidentally vacuum up small liquid drops. Will it damage ?
It shouldn't damage it, but as it is not intended for cleaning wet floors we cannot recommend doing this. It has fine brushes which collect the debris from the floor. Moisture would make it harder to collect and might clog the brushes.

1 - What is the using noise level? 2 - Do you have to keep holding a button on with your hand while in use?
We don't have the decibel level for it, but its nothing like a vacuum cleaner, it's just electric motors spinning rollers. It has an on/off switch rather than a button you hold down.

Mumbee Bay of Plenty
Karcher KB5 Cordless Broom

Bought one some time ago and was very happy with it. Ideal for elderly folk who find most vacuum cleaners too heavy. It is so light and easy to move around. Not good on rugs but perfect for smooth carpets. So good I bought 2 more. One as a spare ready for when the first one wears out.

Karcher sweeper broom

So pleased with the performance of this device.

Capt David Gore
So handy & light

Really happy with the Karcher cordless broom. I have a chronic illness which causes fatigue and this broom is so light and easy to use - so much more manageable than a vacuum for me. Definitely recommend. Mainly use on wooden floors. Works best when moving slowly.

Mel Bay of Plenty
Karcher cordless broom

Love the ease and efficiency of cleaning both carpet and tile floor. BUT oh how hard to remove the emptying container and the brush cleaner. I have arthritis and my hands just can’t manage. Have totally given up on cleaning the brush compartment and have to ease out the dust compartment with a knife. Not good for light plastic! I doubt it will last long. Very disappointing.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Awesome Product

The Karcher cordless broom is awesome, so light, easy to use, no cords getting in the way, easy to empty and clean. I highly recommend this especially to the older person or a person that struggles with an ordinary vacuum cleaner. Ok you may still need the vacuum for getting into those tight corners. I carry a little brush with me to get those area I can't get with the broom and then the broom just sucks it up.

Cordless broom

Not what i expected. Smaller than i imagined. Battery does not last long. Does not pick up big bits of rubbish.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Light and handy

Very handy for picking up bits and bobs between vacuuming. Light and easy to use and empty. Picks up the cat fur really well. I hide behind my drapes in the living area.

Great little broom

Very handy for quick jobs and also brought it so I can keep the inside back door mat looking good after other half, myself and dogs drag stuff in like saw dust under our feet. Have read on other reviews complaints that it doesn't do plush pile carpet but have found with my plush mats, if you slowly drag it backwards (not forward) with no pressure it does a pretty good job.

Kas Waikato
Nifty helper

Very light and nifty broom. Great for a quick brush over the floor and surprised how much dirt it picks up. Very easy to slide out the collective tray and empty out. Buying one for my mother.
