Wash-A-Way Power Mower Blade Washer


From a catalog and website:

    Wash-A-Way™ Mower Washer

    Wash-A-Way makes for a clean machine!

    Cleaning the underside of your mower deck will make your machine last longer and give you a cleaner cut, too.

    Wash grass clippings and more off the underside of your gasoline-powered mower with this specially designed new sprayer.

    Simply screw the Mower Wash-A-Way to your garden hose and slide it under the edge of your mower deck — it stops when it's in the right position.

    You don't need to tilt the mower up for access and you don't need to get your hands anywhere near sharp surfaces.

    Then turn on both the water and mower and let centrifugal force do the work.

    The whirling action of the cutting blades acts as a power washer, deep cleaning every part of the deck, even the corners, in a flash.

    Works with side-discharge and mulching push mowers as well as ride-on mowers: not for use with electric models.

    Made from durable heavy-gauge plastic.

    12" x 9.5" x 2".


Guaranteed to result in some very unpleasant visits to the ER.

Wash a working power mower's blades?

Heck, why stop there?

Why not clean out a jet engine's turbines while it's powered up?

At first I though this was a prank product but it appears legit.

Bad, bad idea.

Perhaps the worst one so far this year.

But if you're the type of person who enjoys living on the edge — as it were — then by all means go right ahead.

This is a great product and makes your mower run easier and smoother. It also makes your mower engine run easier without all that drag. My cleaner came up missing one day and I need to get another. If anyone can help me find one, please contact me. Thanks

This is a good product , but if you choose not to keep a clean deck, We'll be glad to sell you a new deck when yours falls apart from rust and corrosion!

Actually, they /do/ clean turbine's blades when they're on. It used to be done by chucking a sackful of walnut shells into the intake while running - though whether it's still done like that I don't know. I suspect that modern jets run so much cleaner that they don't get coked up like they used to.
