    Nope, Spray it on and hose it off. You will have to re-grease all the fittings but I hose them down regularly

    Put a couple of rags over the spindles to help stop water getting into them.

    Not sure why people keep wanting to wash these machines. There are many parts that are not water proof. None of electrical connectors are water proof. Most of the operator panel can't take water. All of those sealed non greasable bearings can get water in them. And there are many pivot points that have no grease zerts. Just blow the unit off.
