    UnderCarriage -PW- Spray Boom

    Thinking about buying an undercarriage spray. For those that own one, do you like it, love it, or somewhere between like and not like.

    Mainly for Winter UnderCarriage rinsing

    It sure is going to be nicer than crawling underneath and just aim-spraying to reach.
    Having a undercarriage broom with 3-4 upright nozzles on wheels sure sounds nice in theory.


    However, I don't think I would want to fire up the gas PW just for this application.
    I see myself using the electric
    In terms of power, powah........I dunno if it's just better using my 2 GPM 1500 PSI on a single nozzle to have that water to hit all the spots and nooks and crannies.
    It does involving being on ones knees, stomach, etc....to aim using a single nozzle on a wand.


    With the undercarriage broom, I think it might be underpowered for the 'electric (PSI:GPM) and ------> I don't see myself firing up the gasser for this app.

    I have the Ryobi. It gets the job done and doubles as a water broom which comes in handy quite often.

    I looked many times at that PVC one somebody was selling that hooked up to a regular hose, and the ones for pressure washers...and never did it. I personally think you'll be fine with the electric, I mean you're not trying to strip paint.

    Underwasher, that's the PVC one I was talking about. It always seemed like I could make a better one myself, of course that never happened, so the price doesn't look so bad now. Plus he's got that "wheelie" one now, I think that was my problem before is I thought it should have wheels on it. I did buy an angled sprayer I think from Griot's some years ago, which is what I use for flushing underneath, when I do it. It's kind of like this one but not as cool: Amazon.com

    I wonder how much more pressure it has over the Ryobi attachment, which you would use with a pressure washer. I suppose with attachments you could hook the Underwasher to a pressure washer right?

    I was looking at the Ryobi but some of the reviews left durability questions. Seems customers seeing them falling apart...???

    MTM Undercarriage Wand Came in.
    In retrospect, maybe I should have taken a deeper dive on the various ones out there...price:vs item, ahem, Ali.
    But it easy purchase from a reputable manuf. so wasn't on my radar to cross shop.


    Haven't used it, and no plans to until there is salting of the the roads
    It's very well built.
    Every component appears to be stainless. 1 Coupler is Brass, Another is SS Coupler. All Plugs are SS.
    The ONLY portion that is not going to weather well, is the caster wheels for the (swivel roller) if one was to use this caster wheel add-on - to hold the gun VERT with a extension wand - while the entire assembly is flat so you can roll it standing up. The flange on this piece is just a zinc coated steel.

    This is what I have. I needed one that's low-profile for our cars.

    I really like the MTM Under Carriage Cleaner 2.0
    Luckily in CA we don't have the salt problem. and if it's an off roading mud issue the trucks usually have enough lift to get under them.
