Wel-Bilt 3 1/2-Gallon Portable Parts Washer
Solid, portable parts washer
I bought this over a year and a half ago to help clean parts on my various projects. I've used it on two engine rebuilds and several other projects that needed to have parts cleaned. The electric motor and parts sprayer is pretty good to have, like the removable shelf for when I want to soak parts or if I have bigger parts to clean. Overall I've had not complaints with the product and would recommend it.

Better off with a strainer and 5 gal bucket
1. Purchase, put in 1 gal of water based solvent, turn on switch...nothing.
2. Put in 1 more gal of water base solvent...nothing.
3. Put in 1 more gal of solvent...nothing.
4. 3 gallons of solvent now in tank, reach in tank and pull pump to check for obstruction, pull electrical and check for short, find fault at pump, drain 3 gallons into one gallon jugs, return to store.
5. 2nd unit works with one gallon, find high shelf causes excessive splashing around work area.
6. Determine old 5 gallon bucket and strainer worked better.

Good little washer
Works well. Perfect for smaller parts, I use it for bicycle components in my shop. I'm using mineral spirits as a cleaner, which is not recommended by the manufacturer. This has a water based pump unit. Any water based cleaner doesn't work for a darn on greasy parts. I'm going to see how long the pump lasts with the oil product. I would give it five stars if the pump was for an oil cleaner application. Only been using it for two months, so how long will it last? Time will tell.

Bought this parts washer from NORTHERN TOOL because the quality and price were both to my advantage over the similar item from Harbor Freight Tool.
Love it and does the job without mess and waste.

Great little washer
I bought this to do the annual inspection on my airplane and it performed better than expected. I've recommended it to friends who have bought this washer as well.

graet for small jobs
I bought this parts washer to clean parts when I had to rebuilt my yamaha golf cart motor. Great value and perfect for smaller jobs. More than paid for itself in its ability to degrease the engine parts. Much safer than petroleum solvents. I plan on completelely cleaning out the tank and using the item to clean pistols. I'm glad that I bought it because it's definitely handy to have. My only complaint would be that the volume of degreaser fluid is little high, but I can live with that.

this parts washer seems to work well, has plenty of pressure to wash parts. The only thing I would suggest is to get a brush for the unit when you get it.
