#2460: GravelGliders

I bought one of these chassis washers to help protect my car from the salt which my local council throws around liberally, most of the year.

It works well, although Karcher have now suddenly withdrawn the accompanying underbody wax fluid from sale (maybe it was toxic/flammable??). I’ve explained how little that impressed me.

I was also unimpressed that they showed no interest in licensing today’s invention. The chassis washer is great on neatly laid German flagstones, but on anything less flat, like gravel, its tiny wheels just bog down and become a plough.

So…skids. These would press into the washer, in place of the existing removable wheels. It’s clearly not rocket science, but makes the original product a lot more versatile at a small extra cost.
