Re: What is the best way to clean tractors?
I like to remove caked mud, especially from pockets in the frame, loader and bucket, since it holds moisture for longer than if the metal were clean. I use a gas pressure washer with a 10 or 25° tip on a dry, sunny day, keeping away from the dash/engine area. Then I blow the pockets out with compressed air. The cleaning only takes a few minutes, plus setting the washer up (usually this is done when the washer is already setup for something else, though).
