Harbor Freight Digital Ultrasonic Cleaner

Post  MA$TER_E on Tue Jan 01, 2013 5:57 am

So I bought this thing because I took my carb to a buddies house the first time I was taking it apart and we used his. My carb had gunk all over and was generally dirty from being used. This ultrasonic gizzmo cleaned my carb to the point where it looked fresh out of a hot tank, inside and out. I was very impressed.

I've used a couple different cleaners. The ultrasonic powder harbor freight sells for their ultrasonic cleaners; which I promptly threw into the trash, what a bunch of garbage. Some stuff called "super clean" from autozone was pretty aggressive and depending on the aluminum would tarnish it. So off I went back to harbor freight and bought a gallon of this business they use in their regular parts washers for only $9.99. I run a 50/50 mix with water and it cleans fantastically. Straight out of the jug is pretty concentrated stuff. I really recommend diluting it some.


Since I've used it on all kinds of things. Most useful to me has been on fasteners but greasy nuts, bolts, washers, brackets, spacers, sprockets, clutch and brake perches, cleaning up my tools, my carburetor components, suspension compnents and even a whole chain. Yes, the whole chain naughty

So I thought I'd share a couple before and afters. I actually struggled to find things that needed cleaning, but I did find a couple things. These parts were never prep'd or polished after coming out of the cleaner. They went straight in, ran a cycle then brought out and dried off. Thats it. No scrubbing, no brushing, no scraping, no wiping down with a rag at all.

Cheers! Now go clean some stuff nice
