    Excellent wheel cleaner

    Posted by Patricia Zottoli on Jun 29th 2018

    This product works on any engine, new or old. It only takes a couple of moments, depending on how dirty the wheels are. I've been using these for years and know of no other product that cleans as fast or as well as this does. I mean, before I started using one of these, cleaning the wheels was a real drag. For the price, and for what it does in the speed it does it, it's a real bargin

    All my purchases

    This review doesn't cover just this purchased item but all that I have ordered using your on-line service. All have been handled quickly, sent promptly, and received within days. I found that ordering on-line has even saved me money versus visiting the store in person. I have always appreciated shopping at Klein's because of both the available stock and the prices of the items.

    The Kadee Driver Cleaner is easy to use and it works. The wires could be a bit longer.

    It Works!

    Posted by Russell Sleyster on Jun 29th 2018

    I put it to use immediately upon arrival. It was easy to use, and it really did the job. It worked like a charm on DCC and DC locomotives. Several jerky running HO locos suddenly became smooth as silk.

    Between this and a good track cleaner, slow-speed operation returned.

    I also used it to clean driver wheels on two old 0-27 Lionel, DC, 3-rail locos.

    The only catch here, is doing one wheel at a time. I touched one brush against the center pickup and the other on the driver, being careful not to short it out. These old locos were around thirty years old, and hadn't been run for at least 15 years. After taking them apart, cleaning and lubricating, I reassembled and used the Driver Cleaner. These old locos ran as good as they did when they were new-- noisy and fast, litke toy trains do!

    I'd recommend this time saver for every loco, HO or other.

    A life-saver tool.

    Posted by Russ S. on Jun 29th 2018

    Does a finished job on HO locos.. Keep it off of a traction tread though. I suspect it would eat it up.

    I've even used it for old Lionel DC locos. One brush on the center pickup and the other on a driver. Then switch over for the other driver. Removed build up on two 30-year old loco's drivers.

    Wheel cleaner

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 29th 2018

    Pretty good if your just beginning. It does a good job getting all the dirt off but it does take a little bit to get the dirt off. This is not the best wheel cleaner out their but no the worst ether.

    Product Not Compatible with DCC

    Posted by Fredrick Scheer on Jun 29th 2018

    This is a good product that does its intended job subject to the fine print buried in the instructions.

    Unless you read this review, do not buy this driver cleaner sight-unseen or without first reading the instructions. Somehow.

    The issue? It works only on DC locomotives. If you still operate a stable of DC locomotives (or even just one), this is a tool to consider.

    However, it is NOT compatible with DCC.
