WTD : Dirtworker or similar
As title.  Faced with the prospect of riding my first winter since 2008 I need something along the lines of a dirtworker which can hold its own water and runs off the car plug thing.

Does anybody have one they want to sell?
Or can anybody point me towards a bargain?

I want one too. Think they are all around 70 quid now new Sad
Cant help other than comment on them. Bought mine maybe 2 years ago? Only issue was my own fault when I left it with water in my shed during a cold spell, water froze and nuked the seal in the trigger. I got a new one with a better trigger bit. I have an old car battery with a lead to a female lighter socket so I use it all the time at home as ive never had a hose. Get about 20 uses per charge, perfect. Must find a way to fit it in the car if im going to do some winter riding I think as wet mud is so much easier to get off, useful for hosing down waterproof as well.

More than that Andy, £100 odd I think? There is one with a built in battery which costs more but could be useful for you Mark if your flats not ground level. I got mine back in the Halfords sale when they were chucking them out for £50

Sure theres another make as well but forget the name, blue coloured....  :Smile
Non battery one was £75 on Wiggle the other day.

Don't worry Mark, its at least a month before the bad stuff starts. Thats plenty of time to injure your self again.  Tongue

What model was Ben's? That worked  pretty well and survived being used by the sketchy collective.

Edit : Just had a quick ebay and saw this.

Much cheaper, no power required. Only 40 psi which is just under half the one linked to above, but may be enough to get the worst off the bike.
Other than the dont leave them to freeze advice, the other tip is, after turning them off, hold the trigger in for a bit until the water stops coming out. Do not disconnect the trigger or the hose from the system before doing this as its still pressurised and you will get covered in water. This will be funny for spectators however
