    Do any of you guys own one of these tools? I saw it in snow business magazine today. It's a underbody wash tool that works off your pressure washer. I couldn't find any reviews online. I might get one someday if it works well.

    This is the other one, it's a combo of an 18" under carriage wash and a surface cleaner for floors. It is a lighter duty version but if you're using it for occasional use it's a great option.

    How much does the smaller unit sell for? What is the minimum PSI powerwasher it will work with?

    fordfisherman, I sent you a pm.


    The Mosmatic ones are rated max 4000psi and max volume of 13gpm
    The small combo is rated for 1000-4000psi, and a max volume of 8gpm

    While psi is important, volume is key for best results, either one a would recommend a minimum of 5gpm @ 3000psi. You can match the spray tips to what your pump is rated for to maintain pressure.

    Anybody else notice neither the manufacturer nor a dealer wants to tell us how much they cost? If you have to ask you can't afford it.

    Ask and you shall receive. Northern tool sells the Mosmatic, feel free to compare prices.

    The base Mosmatic Undercarriage Cleaner $1110.29

    Mosmatic High Lift Undercarriage Cleaner is $1310.74
    This one is better for trucks, large equipment as it shoots 3-5' up, but can be too high to fit under cars

    Mosmatic Undercarriage Cleaner Protection Gaurd Plate $149.65
    This protects the arm and nozzles from debris fall onto it.


    18" combo under carriage and surface cleaner $884.61

    You got to love your under carriage at that price! Did some one say oscillating lawn sprinkler?

    NOTHING will clean like a heated pressure washer. Good luck doing that with a lawn sprinkler

    Those are a bit pricey.

    A lawn sprinkler does a good job. I run it for 10-15 under the bed, the cab/ bed and the engine bay. It's a little bit of work but a lot cheaper than that unit.

    Take the plow off and run through an automatic car wash with underbody flush. 8 bucks. I have better things to do than roll that thing under and around my trucks. Like take a nap. They will only last so long anyway. Leaving them out in the cold instead of a warm shop goes further with longevity than that.

    I don't know of any automatic wash bays around me that'll fit dumptrucks through.

    We use the surface cleaner in the summer. Now we have a new use for it! They are well built.

    Then lift the box and spray it off with a pressure washer. Soak the frame and underbody/box with dieseldrain oil mix with a pump sprayer.. And if you are worried about a few drips while applying that put some cardboard down first.
