    First and foremost, I really want to thank everyone here for their help. I finally have most of my operation up and running. Like I have said before I am not a new dog, but when you move somewhere new and you dont know a soul in the buisness, you need all the help you can get.

    On my bobcat where the hydro hosing comes through the back grease fitting on the back upper arm, I have a lot of grease that has come off the fitting and is now sitting on the hose. I can only take off so much grease. Is there any other way to get this grease off?

    Brake cleaner is hard on rubber hoses it will dry the rubber out your better off using dish soap or even car wash soap. WD-40 will clean off most of the grease as it takes oil to clean oil.

    Try Spray-9 and a soft bristle brush with a light mist of water

    cold presure washer works for us. we used to use a steam system but in just smeared grease all over. the cold cuts it and it will fall off
