    I would like to presure wash (1000-1800psi) my Lazer HP once a week. Is this safe? And, what type of engine/mower type cleaner do you recommend?

    HighGrass,

    We really don't like power washer. They very hard on connections and seals. But if you have to stay away from the console cutter housings and connectors.

    A mild soap is best. Always always run the unit after washing, 2-3 mins with the blades engaged. This spins and dries off the belts spindles and engine.

    Thanks, Fred.

    OK, how about Orange Blast (ligtly sprayed on) and a garden hose?

    HighGrass,

    Orange Blast???? I am guessing that this is citric cleaner. This should be ok. What you don't want is something that is harmful to rubber, plastic, the seals and electrical components. Most of this should be labeled on the bottle.

    You may want to put out a post on the commercial side and see what they use. You may want to first do a search.

    Thanks, Fred.
