Customer review

– The Net cleaners best quality is that it withstands currents well so we can fulfil our job even in bad conditions. It also cleans very gentle and doesn’t remove the impregnation on the nets. This keeps our customers happy. Compared to other solutions on the market we find the Østerbø Yanmars Net Cleaner to have a very good cleaning result, and due to low pressure it is not compromising with the gentleness.
