Time to Clean and Winterize Your Boat, Tools and Vehicles

Old Man Winter is officially still more than a month away but cold temperatures have arrived right on time.  It looks like those warm weekends are just about over so it’s time to clean and winterize your vehicles, watercraft, all terrain vehicles, bikes, sports equipment and lawn mowers.  A bit of prevention can save you many dollars on future repairs, keep your valuables in good working condition and prepared to pull out of hibernation at the first signs of spring.

First step – A good cleaning is required and The BenchtopPRO is the portable parts washer made just for these garage type jobs. Whether cleaning bike gears, gardening tools, dirt bikes, golf clubs, lawn mowers or a boat engine, The BenchtopPRO cleans dirty greasy parts without damaging your hands or clothes. The attached brush works efficiently to clean the cracks and crevices and between cleanings the BTP solution cleans itself through a process called bio remediation. Simply stated, while stored away with the solution left in it, the enzymes eat the dirt and grease similar to the solution used to clean the Gulf of Mexico during the 2010 oil spill.

If you are winterizing an engine, below are a variety of sites to help.

DIYer Uses The BenchtopPRO to Restore Old Motorcycles

Thanks David, from Herndon, Virginia for taking the time to tell us about your experience with The BenchtopPRO.

Here’s what David had to say:

I am very pleased with The BenchtopPRO.  I restore old motorcycles and, honestly, the old solvent based parts cleaners were a source of anxiety and consternation for me. I hated the smell in the garage, the jeopardy to the environment, and, well it’s a huge fire hazard to have several gallons of flammable solvent sitting out in the garage attached to one’s house. 

I’ve spent a lot of semi-wasted time trying to put together a DIY aqueous parts cleaning setup, and in the process of Internet research, I discovered The BenchtopPro. It was exactly what I was trying to do, except one important feature: I’m neither a chemist nor a biologist, so I was never going to be able to develop an effective solvent or bioremediation technique. Plus, the low cost, portability, and engineering of the BenchTopPro makes a DIY solution seem pretty silly and not cost-effective.

The BenchTopPro is wonderful and it’s literally the perfect solution (no pun intended) for many of us.
