Pressure Washer Accessory Advice

Hi, Wife bought me a nice semi high-end pressure washer, 2600 PSI, gas powered, not a POS. I am looking to try to find an accessory I heard of once that sort looks like a pipe on wheels with 3 or 4 nozzles in the pipe. This is then attached to the pressure washer and used to clean the undercarriage of the car. I've googled but not had any luck. I'm hoping someone on this forum may know what I'm talking about or some variance on the theme that might work. I've got a couple of 123's that are enduring a difficult and salty winter. I want to de-salt them as throughly as I can on warmer days. I don't garage the cars and they are my only mode of transportation so they are really heading for the rust bin if I don't clean them throughly.
Thanks for any advise.

Can't help "where", but the ones I remember were to clean side walks.

So the spray was down, not up.

Try Harbor tools ??

Yeah, I was looking at one of those at home depot today. thinking about how to either modify or maybe make one from some pipe and fittings. I usually blast the bottom of the cars in the spring and re-do any flaking undercoating with por15 or other rust paint. Trying to keep my 123 beater alive for a few more decades.

You might just purchase a water broom and invert the wheel so the nozzles are up - save a few shillings

April Showers

Iíve been thinking that heavy spring rain is the best solution for washing the undercarriage of my car. Mother nature provides the healing rinse as we move through wet spring months to the glorious warm and dry summer days that make it very easy to keep my car clean.

You feel you love them too much, or you are just too stupid to know any better.
