Muc-Off Pressure Washer Product Review

We review the Muc-Off Pressure Washer

British company Muc-Off has slowly been encroaching on the U.S. market in the last few years with a range of excellent motorcycle-specific cleaning products, the latest of which is its Muc-Off Pressure Washer.

Muc-Off Pressure Washer Product Review
The Muc Off Pressure Washer is easily portable and weighs 15 pounds.

The pressure washer comes with three different gun outlets that produce varying levels of pressure for cleaning motorcycles and bicycles. The custom lance fits directly onto the top of a bottle of Muc-Off Nano Tech Bike Cleaner, Muc-Off Nano Gel Concentrate or 1L Snow Foam, meaning no additional bottle is required to mix or dilute.

Screw the bottle to the lance, let loose with the foam and let it sink in for a few minutes before using the pressure gun as normal. You’ll get a maximum pressure of 100 bar, which should be plenty for getting the mud/road grime off your bike without damaging rubber seals or bearings. The unit comes in a 30L dry bag, so you don’t lose any of the various parts. All up, the system weighs 15 pounds.

Muc-Off Pressure Washer User Analysis

Muc-Off’s range of cleaning products are motorcycle specific, and I’ve been using their chain cleaner and paint protector spray for a while now. Those are both excellent products but have taken a firm second and third places behind my new favorite—the Muc-Off Pressure Washer.

The actual pressure gun itself is not much to write home about. Don’t get me wrong—it’s a very good pressure washer, but you can probably find many similar items at various hardware stores.

Spray on, spray off. We found the Muc-Off Pressure Washer greatly reduces the hassle of washing your bike.

What’s good about the Muc-Off washer is the way it matches to the cleaning foam. There’re a few connectors you need to use but, for the most part, assembly is simple. Once you hook the lance up to the Snow Foam and fire the first spray, you’ll be amazed at the coverage you get. It took all of about 30 seconds to completely encase the KTM pictured here in white foam. Let the foam sink in for about five minutes, then come back with just water in the gun. The result is a near new looking bike, with no need for a sponge.

I was genuinely surprised at how good the clean was—it’s basically the same as having a pressure washer from a car wash in your garage. Another surprise was how little of the Snow Foam the washer used to coat the bike. I think I could probably get five decent washes out of the bottle, which isn’t bad for $16.49 per bottle. CN
