The only good thing about it is that there is a little fence that keeps the filter off the bottom if you just leave it there to soak. Other than that, it is just a bucket. I though maybe the bottom of the oiling bucket would snap to the top of this one to store them easily together, but it doesn't. Also, the second fence that is supposed to keep the filter submerged just keeps popping out and is therefore useless.
Great idea for holding the filter wash fluid for multiple uses. It keeps the contaminants separated from the filter by using a well designed wire stand in the bottom of the bucket.
The one thing that does not work that well is the extra wire rack that is inserted into the bucket after placing the filter in to keep it submerged for proper cleaning. I would consider this feature a nice to have and not a necessary feature.
I can't comment on the longevity as I just received the product.
Like the title says, it’s basically just a bucket. A $15+ bucket at that. I think the excuse for making this more expensive than a bucket should be are the two wire “racks”. The one on the bottom does it’s job but the one that’s suppose to hold down the filter is worthless. Because of the tape if the bucket it won’t stay down and just keep Land springing back up. Even with no filter trying to lightly push it up it will still spring back up. I needed to use a brick to hold it down. So go to Home Depot and get yourself a bucket...a way cheaper and more durable bucket. Or buy a giant pail of cheap ice cream from the grocery store and save the container when you’re done. That’s about the quality of this bucket. You’ll prob end up spending less in the end, and have several gallons of ice cream to get your kids all amped up on sugar to boot.
Kind of expensive for what you get. Storing cleaner in the bucket must have ate away at the side of inside and now its starting to deform. Ill just get a regular bucket but at least now I have the bright orange top and cleaning cage.
for such a simple device, it really makes cleaning up the air filters a less laborious process. we have four dirt bikes with foam air filters, so nice to have the tubs full and ready to go. tried to use plastic paint tubs from ACE hardware, but over time the lids did not deal well
I like this kit so much, I bought two. One for cleaner, one for oil. Makes cleaning and oiling a breeze. Best system ever used. A must for frequent filter swaps. Buy two, no regrets. RMATV/MC shipping is fast.
Awesome idea, great quality. Top basket is suppose to go in after filter and hold filter under cleaning solution. It does not. Top basket just comes back up, won't stay down, so it's useless. Other that that it's good
This thing is perfect. They managed to make it perfectly round, the exact height they said it would be and the lid is a gorgeous orange color. Not quite fire orange and a little less pink than a Hawaii sunset but just right. Probably the nicest bucket I've ever bought, which it should be; it's the most expensive bucket I've ever bought. 11/10 on the bucket scale.
This is a good product, easy to use, and made of quality material. Should last a long time. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is the metal tray that goes on top to keep filter submerged is very temperamental in that it doesn't like to stay in place other than at the very top. I don't want to fill the tub that high because its just a waste, so at this time I don't use the metal tray on top, but I do use the bottom filter tray.
I actually use No Toil cleaning and oiling products and this tub works great for cleaning all of our air filters. Love the rack on the bottom that lets the heavy dirt fall down to the bottom and separate from the wash, as well as the second rack that sits on top that allows the filters to drip dry.
sadly yet again its just a bucket , but it does come with some nice aluminium Spiders (i dont know what the proper name for them are ) . one is used to hold the filter off the bottom where the dirt and grime collect and the other to hold the filter submerged in your solution to soak.
Worked well at first. After 3 months of use the wire insert that is supposed to hold the filter down under the cleaner will not stay down. It keeps popping up in the tub allowing the filter to float instead of being kept under the cleaner as designed. Also the lid has cracked in several places allowing the smell of the cleaner to permeate the air in work area. The idea of the product is great, but it just doesn't work.
This is a big tub to store your air filter cleaner in. Is it worth the money, I would say yes as it is very durable and there is a metal grate type thing in the bottom to prevent your filter from touching the dirt that has accumulated at the bottom of the tub.
<br>An update, if you don't open this tub up for a while it will look like it is imploding.
i bought two one for cleaning, one for spraying after, all my filter are dirty i clean them all at once to save on chemicals, and i store the clean ones in one of the tubs until its time to ride, i spray sum oil on one filter and go. the rest are clean waiting on the next ride.
I bought this to use to oil my filters, so I always have a oiled filter ready to go on the bike and not have to wait while I clean the one on the bike. It holds a ton, as I dumped in roughly 12 bottles of filter oil and the cage sits high enough to allow all the excess to run into the bottom and the filter is ready to go at that point.
It's been a while since I've purchased, but it ones with a SINGLE black one. In my experience, it's used to hold the filter down into the bottom of the bucket and into the solvent. Without it, they want to naturally float to the top, leaving some of the filter exposed.
