Just curious as to how many of you keep your equipment clean. Give a vote here!
No matter how often you wash your equipment, don't do it right after use. As the spindle housings cool they will draw in water and ruin the bearings.
my truck trailor and mower get washed at least 3 times a week.
i may not have the newest around but its gonna look presentable
Frank... didn't know that ...thanks... now... we grease after each wash, so that should solve that problem right??
I wash mine when i have time, about once a year or so. do the truck every 2 weeks if i can.
after every rain storm or at the end of every week.
I feel lookin good is a big part of running your
own bussiess. Plus i'm not happy if my mowers are dirty.
I use simple green if the build up is bad. The front caster wheels are the toughest to clean, especially the side of the wheel with the grease zerk and the valve stem. A little armour all and it looks new, well kinda used.
While washing you can get up close and personal with the money maker. You will be able to identify any maintenance issues hopefully before a breakdown.
Wash it, pull off trailer, engage clutch, dirty again. No thanks. If you use your equipment everyday, then it is pointless. Not to mention, exmark recommends not running water on your machine. Blow it off. The bearings are a sealed system with no grease fittings. Water tends to find its way into the spindles.
I got stuck in a drainage ditch today. I will wash it this weekend.

lcos around here at the car wash regular.i just thought everybody
