Just wanted to see how others maintain there equipment such as how often do u wash your mowers,trimmers, blowers, etc. I usually wash my equipment depending on how much usage it got during the previous week. I usually take off air filter cover it up with a plastic sheet and spray some degreaser all over the engine then wash it off...what do u guys do?

We change the mowers oil every 25 hours.As we<br>bought the Kubota for one big subdivision job<br>we wash it after every visit.Tractor/slasher<br>and truck get serviced every 200 hours and<br>washed when it rains.

Our mower get &quot;detailed&quot; at least once a month. I scrub the tires, degrease everything, change the oil after 50-60 hrs. My truck gets washed at least every week, sometimes more. I picked the wrong color(Maroon) I can't keep the thing clean! I don't try to keep the trimmers too clean, just wiped off. <p>I think having a clean appearance tells the customer you are concerned and trying to make an impression. I see some around here that have literally never washed their mowers, you can tell by their work that they don't care either. Maybe one thing follows another.<p>Homer
