Does anyone know where I can use a high pressure hose to clean my fourby in south sydney. The only reason I want it clean is because I have a major service due & I can't take it to my mechanic with 3-4 cms of mud on it. Can't really get buckets of water up under there, & the rain hasn't been enough to get it all off.

The mechanic doesn't have a high pressure hose, & I'm not paying $100+ for it to be detailed to wash of dirt.

Cheers

Gday Jacka, unfortunately not familiar with that part of syd. but can tell you that a lot the commercial carwashes now have one bay set up for fourbys and boats . You could always rock up to the wash bay with a pocket full of gold coin and a set of ramps ( see it done all the time in vic ) . Keep your eyes open for 'free time' car washes, where if you put in say $8 you then get another 5 minutes or so for nix. No need to pay for pro detail buddy. Cheers Brad.Moo... everyone knows what a Jackaroo looks like :-)

OK just go to supercheap or similar and get some $30 short ramps , good for years of underbody washing :-) I used to live in Benalla in country vic and they have a great wash bay with a raised concrete stand about 3 foot high that you can walk all round and go for it with the gerni, pity more places don't put a little forethought into their set ups..

Bunnings or similar hardware stores hire Gerneys or equipment hire places.

Might cost 30-40 bucks but you'll get a better job than paying mega gold coin at Carlovers or similar.You're only as old as she feels

Jackablue,
I cleaned my car on the drive last weekend using my own hi pressure cleaner. The water restrictions say you have to use a bucket ... so I did ... I put the inlet hose for the pressure cleaner into the bucket, put the bucket 2 feet higher than the cleaner, and away I went. Gravity feed is fast enough to get the water to the cleaner. Save your money & save (more) water by doing it this way.

So much to see, too little time ...

With the bucketting of rain last night where I am, I jumped in the car & found plenty of huge puddles & water sitting on the road. The deluge was a great underbody wash.
