Got one of these off ebay using addresspal to save the postage. Great yoke for rinsing down the bike after a run through mucky salty roads.

High pressure and bike labels don't mix. And it's not good for the chain. I believe.

It would be alright once the mud and dirt wouldn't be dried on to the bike.

Looks a handy little thing, for the money you cant go wrong, the problem with most powerewashers is user stupidity as regards stickers/chains/bearings etc. Basically ya dont point them at those items directly and you should not have the pressure up to the last.
Id say that little yoke is ideal for the op's intended use which i understand to be a quick rinse down to get rid of the heavy muck after a spin.

That's pretty cheap. The pump alone is normally that price. The postage cost makes it a bit dear though.
Unfortunately the pumps are a bit shite. I bought one to do some irrigating and it lasted about 3 months before it died.

I bought one for a different job, and had no problem putting a UK address in. Free postage.

I tried using a parcel motel address, it still won’t accept it. What way did you go about it ?

I tried it with parcel motel address up north but the seller won't ship to the north, only England.
