This is quite a funky device! My father first bought this window cleaner from Amazon for £53, including delivery mainly for the purpose of cleaning the conservatory windows. We were staying with them last month and I used it several times with great success. When we got home I ordered one from Amazon for our flat, which arrived a few days ago and today I cleaned the windows with it for the first time. I paid £52, also ordering from Amazon.
Its basically a vacuum held window cleaner, in the yellow and black Karcher colours, well made, as you would expect - its German! It comes with a "window head" I think they call them squeegees in the window cleaning trade, however it's a much better quality head than the ones you generally see on manual devices with two thick layers of thick, soft rubber for cleaning. The vacuum's suction is strong and the water goes into a bottle, easily removable for emptying. It has one button, on/off and is powered by rechareable batteries which last a long time. It's very light so you can hold it up high easily. It also comes with a spray bottle and microfiber pad.
Just switch on and go! I washed the windows first with the spray and microfiber pad, then used the Katcher vacuum to suck the wetness from the windows so they became clean and dry. I started from the top of the window working down, as it feels easier to use the vacuum in a downward motion. Luckily our flat has windows which open completely inwards, so I can clean both the inside and outside without having to lean out. I also used it to suck the wet off my shower cubicle, it was very quick and so much easier than using a cloth as I did before.
Tips - Don't rush!
I did find you need to be methodical about how you are cleaning so you don't miss bits, but also you can tell if you have rush-cleaned the windows, the effect isn't so good and you get water marks.
Good little device which makes window cleaning easy to do, plus delivers good results. I give it a 4/5, just because I think £50+ is quite expensive although it does make cleaning the windows that bit more enjoyable.
Summary: A great device which makes window cleaning much, much easier.
