    Can you high presure wash the inside of the grass hopper? I looked in the book and saw nothing on that.

    Want to make sure I don't damage anything like signal full switch in the hopper. Thanks

    I've pressure washed many times never had a prob. What I use to clean out the inside of box is westleys bleach white and then spray with clorox cleanup over the westleys may take a few times but I get mine like brand new. Hope this helps.

    Simple Green or Mean Green works good also. Spray with pressure washer.

    We just hire a steam guy to blast them every month. Inside and out. Hasn't hurt anything in 7 yrs. Great mower. It's hard to keep them looking like new when you work them 6 days a week.

    The GHS system on a Walker is surprisingly water tight. We use a hot water 2500 psi washer on all our customers equipment and haven't come across any issues with washing the Walkers. Heres a good tip, use the spray. I think it's called grass-off or something like that. It's the same stuff that they spray under mower decks to keep the grass from building up. Wash out your hopper once a week and reapply the spray. It keeps the inside like new. Has anyone tried the new Walker walkbehind mower yet?
