Muc-Off's X-3 Dirty Chain Machine comes with their eco-friendly biodegradable Drivetrain Cleaner that can be sprayed on the chain or for best results, poured into the top reservoir of the machine. The chain machine features tough-cutting teeth and face-to-face rotating brushes that have 120 points of contact to ensure nothing is left unscrubbed. As the chain rotates through the cleaner, excess fluid drops into the lower reservoir, keeping it away from the newly cleaned chain.
The overall construction of the X-3 Dirty Chain Machine is durable to ensure many years of use. The top and bottom half of the cleaner easily unclip for quick cleaning and snap back together for easy re-use. The bottom half of the cleaner has a conveniently placed grooved handle for streamlined, steady operation.

It's a good idea, allowing the cleaner to drip down over the chain as it goes through the brushes instead of having the chain circulate in a pool of cleaner that gets dirty quickly. However, between the third and fifth use or thereabouts the drip mechanism stopped working. The last several times I used it I resorted to just filling the bottom and letting is splash around. I've since ordered a Pedros and will be discarding this one. I really like Muc Off's cleaning fluids and will continue using them but this cleaner (at least for me) is a fail.
This works to get off the obvious grease and grime, but the last time I used it there was residual grease on the chain after rinsing. The screws on the top of the unit are extremely cheap and if any moisture is around they will rust. Absurd to have such cheap screws on a piece of equipment that will be used with liquids. Not very impressed with this product for deep cleaning and its quality of construction. I would not buy it again as it costs much too much money for what you get. I will be surprised if it lasts a year.
