Would love a bigger pic of those agitators Lenn, can´t quite make out how they look underneath?

Anyway, "cool beans" would be a fitting term for that fine setup...

Will be lookin forward to the video 🙂

Here ya go Jan, this one has a flapper valve in the part i painted yellow i think the idea is they breath which helps make it work the valve is closed on the down stroke.



The bottom side.



The other one doesn`t have a valve and is different on the bottom, your guess is as good as mine on the actions of different models.

Thanks Lenn, never seen anything like those before, but some thought certainly has gone into their construction.
Will be looking forward to the test..so we might get a proper idea of their function...and perhaps even pick a winner 🙂

LOVE IT LENN !

Did any of the agitators turn out to be "the best one", when it comes to lifting the cloth up through the water?
Your white rubber on the wringer rolls looks brand new, how is that possible, have they been restored?

Anyway, so cool to see everything in action there, thanks for sharing 🙂
Cheers
