Re: Carcube


Am gonna have to disappoint you Liam and say that it will NOT remove the caked mud, the jet is not strong for this type of application.

Re: Carcube


Thanks Jalal,
     Appreciate your honest answer there, but what if the mud is still wet/moist prior to it drying? or does this not matter as mud is mud? Does it atleast remove some of it? like off wheels, calipers,etc IF the mud finds its way in there?
     Also I've had another option and I know this is going off the topic of the CarCube, but I have been looking at the Karcher Winner 11 (RRP $99 I think) which is capable of drawing from a bucket filled with water, this requires a special hose to do this job which is about $50 but I am not sure if this is sold seperate for this model, or comes with it, the only downer with this option is its 120V and needs mains to operate emoticon and if we go purchase a convertor it starts costing more then I bargained for.
     But who is going to carry around a bucket, water, pressure washer AND convertor.... And thats why i like the idea of the CarCube, you can fill it up prior to leaving and go from there.. Nothing else needed...

Hi Liam, it will remove some of it or if you plan on using 10 bucket fulls to do so, in which case you might as well use the tap LOL emoticon

Re: Carcube


LOL... The tap.. The dear ol' tap.. I bet if I used the trigger nozzle attachment I have on the main tap compared to a bucket, the trigger nozzle method would use much less water, but try explaining that to Sydney water when they fine you for using the "HOSE" he he..

We can't win either way, I think I might get it, give it a test run.. Whats the worst that could happen, delay retirement by a couple of days emoticon he he

P-S I forgot to mention also, how does it go removing sand from your days out at the beach? Does it have enough pressure to remove sand from the little hidy holes in the wheel bay? i.e. in front of the rear wheel.

Re: Carcube


I finally got to use my Carcube after Santa left it for me. It's about what I expected, not quite the same as your usual garden hose but it gets the job done and I will certainly be washing the Exy more often.

I washed the exy before the QLD Meet-up and the CarCube did the job perfectly well.

Re: Carcube


After a day playing in the sand at Boat Harbour I got the Carcube out as soon as I got home and it actually seemed to have better pressure and performed better than its initial effort??????

Re: Carcube


I took mine camping and managed to step on the hose connection point in the dark. Snapped it clean off... but fixed it with super glue the next day!

The CarCube makes a great shower when camping... leave it in the sun for a few hours and you have a nice warm shower waiting for you emoticon

bluexy - where did you get the adaptor from? I've been wondering about them!
