Recommendation size and brand ultrasonic cleaner

looking for which size and brand i should get for an ultrasonic cleaner.

am not a professional so we are not talking about 5-10 carbs a week.

maybe 10 carbs in a year.

also, which solution do you prefer?

Thank you in advance.

I found one on eBay from China and itís yet to fail me, I only clean jets and a few small steel parts and use something called Chem-Krest (not sure if I spelled that right) but anyhow it cleans the brass excellent but you can not put aluminum in it as it dissolves aluminum lol. Also I fill the ultrasonic with just water and put a glass jar in the basket with the cleaner so it keeps the ultrasonic clean.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.

I have the 2.5L from Harbor Freight. I do wish I had another inch of depth as some carbs don't get fully submerged. It's worked but not as good as I expected. I dip carbs in the industrial strength dedicated carb cleaner over night and then into the ultrasonic using simple green. One thing is always empty out the solution after each use. I left mine sit a couple days and it turned the clear plastic cover to opaque.

.

I did a lot of research into these. I had one years ago but it was too small. I do about the same number of carbs as @orangputeh, plus other stuff. I now have the Durasonix 10L and like it:


. (Note CND prices).

Three lessons I learned from my first cheap one:

1. Make sure it has a drain
2. Make sure it has a heater element, timer preferred
3. Check with manufacturer about their cleaning solutions in these devices as some break down. For example the purple version of Simple Green is tested in ultrasonic cleaners.

I have the Harbor Freight cleaner, and usually soak the carb overnight in a bucket of Chem Cleaner and then run it through the ultra sonic cleaner the next day with warm soapy water. Then blow it out with compressed air and put it back together.

Seems to work fine for me!

I bought a used Branson ultrasonic cleaner on ebay about 1-1/2 years ago. Holds about 1-1/2 gallons and is heated. 10 carbs and it's paid for. I use Simple Green HD to make the solution.
