Harbor freight parts washer-

#1-I know this isnt in the right section so MOD's feel free to adjust as needed. (wasnt sure were to put it!)
#2 I know harbor freight is not snap on.

20 Gallon Parts Washer with Pump

Hey guys, was wondering if anybody has had any excperience with these. I would love a small washer for simple jobs. I dont need anything fancy and for $100 buck this sucker could be awesome!
My concern is with freezing. What do you guys use in the winter time? It sais to use a water based solvent, could I add some RV anti freeze with it?
Does it drain out of the pump when you turn it off?
Any of your thoughts on this would be great. Thanks

As far as winter time.. I didn't do anything to the solvent- my garage doesn't get below freezing so never thought about it.

They make other parts washers out there that have heaters in them. Hot solution = degrease faster...

I didn't think that most solvents freeze. Here is a link to the Crc solvent that was mentioned before. In the customer Q & A someone asked if it freezes and they said it doesn't.

Buy CRC Parts Washer Solvent 05067 at Advance Auto Parts
