I've bought one, it should arrive next week.
I look forward to the feedback, good luck with it!
It arrived last weekend, I took it out of the box one wednesday evening, its big, you can get a whole MK1 coach in the basket.
I have not though had a chance (nor a need really) to use it yet, but I intend to clean my MOK Ivatt 4mt with it this weekend and post some photos.
I tried it yesterday
Here's the Mk1 in the basket
Thats about the limit of things but more than big enough for most items.
The instructions say to use tap water or with a little added washing up liquid at a temperature between 40 and 60 degrees.
You can run for upto 1 hour maximum, then it may over heat.
I tried with the MOK Ivatt 4 mt body
I gave it 5 minutes at 40 degrees, it did n't appear to be any cleaner to look at but there was a bit of dirt in the bottom of the cleaner. Only one little bit fell off.
I also tried on some JLTRT resin castings and it removed a few traces of mould release that was on one of them.
On the whole I'm very pleased with it I'm sure it will get well used over time.
How did that look after an hour in the tank then?
That is it after 5 minutes in the tank, there wasn't much point in doing it for any longer at this stage of the build, it certainly felt clean to the touch.
Fortunately only one little bit fell off !
