Hi, I'm considering finding an alternative to petrol powerd jet wash to use at the track where there isn't any mains water or electric available. I've seen the worx hydro shot but not sure if it's powerful enough to be any use at the track. Has anyone got or used a portable battery powered jet wash for cleaning Motocross bikes?

I usually pee on my bike. Cleans it and saves a trip down the pits to the porta pot

I wouldn't go with anything under 1500psi.

For years I had a 2000psi 1.7gpm unit that I took to the track religiously. A couple years ago when I tried it out at the house it developed a stuck valve over the winter. Unstuck said valve. Did not feel comfy taking it to the track, since now it was unreliable.

Bought a 3100psi 2.5gpm unit. I figured I might run out of water, since it upped my usage by .8 gpm. Wrong. I would say about the same. More pressure & flow equals less time to do the job.

But KMC440 is correct, I would not want a unit that is less than 1500psi, and that would be washing off dust. FYI at that pressure, if your dealing with REAL eastern sticky mud, you will go through that 55 gallon barrel in one wash.

YMMV

Use the GPM rather than PSI. The amount of water is very important and anything less than 1.5 will leave you wanting more. 2.0 to 2.5 is the sweet spot. Anything more is too much. I doubt you will find anything close to that with battery power.
