What does everyone do for washing their machines? What type of soap?
Just pressure washing, thats it.
For one, presure washing doesn't seem to be removing the stains,,,
and two, I was told you shouldn't presure wash mowers.
We wash off every day and we spray the underside with WD40 daily.
I wash mine off every day and once a week with a pressure washer
I use Dawn for my cleaning agent and then my pressure washer.
I wash mine twice a year and carefully at that.
I have a 26 EFI on the Walker and you have to be careful with the electronics.
The thing gets pressure washed in the safe areas only twice a year, no soap. Once in early summer and once before I store it for the winter.
I mostly use compressed air or just air from the backpack blower to clean it up. Water causes problems in certain places.
Wow? Every day? After workng 10,11,12 hours in the spring, I highly doubt my husband would even so much as think about washing a mower.
All mowers are carefully cleaned and washed when put away in the fall. That's it.
greased lightning will break up grass stains instantly
I use warm soapy water (dish washing detergent) and an old car washing mitt or scrub brush to thoroughly clean exposed painted surfaces on my equipment, the stains are stubborn but if you persist with scrubbing they can be removed. Schedule for this cleaning varies but is done usually on a monthly basis (rainy day) other cleanings are done daily with either the backpack (Echo 650) or compressed air. I do have a pressure washer (crapsman 3000 psi w/6.5 hp BnS) and it will remove the equipment decals but will only lighten the grass stains (not remove them) so it is setting in a corner of the shop. I do not like grungy a bit dirty is OK but I really like to see my equipments paint.
