Isn't this just a bucket on an axis?

With the cheap Chinese automatic washing machines available for $60 or so, why get one of these now? Or, why not just get a bucket from Home Depot?

A little cheaper on Amazon [amazon.com] ($38.99). There might be cheaper options, didn't look hard

That's an completely different product. Here's another. They are all just glorified buckets.

If you want a real washing machine where you can just put clothes into and turn on then walk away. Here's one for the same amount of money.

That's just a re-badged WonderWash, currently selling for $38.99 on Amazon https://smile.amazon.com/Laundry-Alternative-Wonderwash-Non-electric-Portable/dp/B002C8HR9A/ref=sr_1... [amazon.com]

The earlier version of the WonderWash had the old style screw top locking knob that OP's EcoWash uses, but has since gone with an upgraded (and much more convenient) cam lever locking mechanism.

I have the WonderWash. It actually is a bit more than just a sealable bucket that happens to spin around on a stand. The vessel becomes pressurized, which purportedly helps get clothes cleaner with less time/effort. And it does have a slick one way valve on the bottom for drainage.

I will say it does work but until you get the hang of it, expect to make a bit of a mess the first few times. And understand this is no substitute for a real washing machine. I can see this making sense in some sort of back country wilderness cabin type scenario, or maybe for a minimalist RV'er who doesn't want to bother with laundromats.

The real limiting factor is how/how quickly you can dry the clothes you wash with this thing.

Thanks for clarifying.
