Neat idea, but completely unnecessary, unless you have a bad back....

How is this unnecessary? I think these are great for removing salt and sand in the winter, and especially prior to undercoating. For people who don’t have access to a lift.

At my age I'm letting the car wash do it.
And a second problem is that when it's most needed (winter salt) the runoff in my driveway is gonna freeze like a skating pond.

Far to many incidents at automated car washes, and I can get a hand wash for 18 bucks, meanwhile it’s 16 for automated. Person who details my vehicles has one of these and they work great in the winter time.

I guess so. I usually just take a power washer and shoot it underneath. shrug

If you are treating your cars with something like Krown or CarWell or Fluid Film you should not use anything that uses high pressure to wash the undercarriage. Except right before a re-treatment.

This does get into places that you can’t get to with standard power wash and bending down, especially with cars....I always do this before undercoating, and the people who undercoat love that I do it prior!

Maybe it's better than I assumed. I may get one for after off-road use and winter.

After mud, coastal sand, and brackish water crossings - have always used a lawn sprinkler and an inline feed cup for Salt Away if needed
