Want to clean your bike away from power or water sources? Then maybe this portable Bosch Fontus Washer will be of interest.
The Bosch Fontus Washer has a maximum pressure of 15bar, so Bosch says it’s not a high pressure washer, but has enough oomph to remove mud without destroying bottom brackets, headsets etc. Powered by a 18V Li-Ion battery with a 15L water on board water tank, it offers the option of cleaning your bike away from power or water sources. There are three power settings and four spray patterns available, with a removable cleaning brush.
It’s a fairly portable set up. With a retractable handle, you can tow it along on the plastic wheels without having to bend uncomfortably. It’s not super easy to drag along – it’s not like towing a fancy suitcase through an airport – but it certainly does the job. There’s a storage area for your brush attachment, though I suspect only the most committed neat freaks will do anything other that wrap the hose round the handle after use.
If you’ve already got a bunch of other Bosch garden equipment, you can share this battery with other items in the home and garden range. But be sure to check you’ve not left in in the angle grinder when you head to the trail head…
