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

I love it!!!! Ive had one for a couple years now and it gets the job done.. I don't use a parts washer daily so I didn't see the need to fork out big bucks for a snap on.

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.
