I use purple degreaser mixed with hot water in a bucket and a brush.How do you get all the dirt and grime off without scratching them up or hurting electrical system and parts? What is the basic cleaning up method?
If you don't clean them you don't have the opportunity to identify things that might not otherwise be noticed. Mine get dirty... If I don't clean them you can see some maintenance items....Tractors are made for workin' not cleanin'. They sit outside, not in a curio cabinet in the family room.
Exactly, I hate working on my stuff if I need to fix something when its dirty.I worked in heavt eqpt fleets for 20 yrs. We kept our eqpt clean. Nothing worse than wrenching on something with crud falling on you or into the engine.
Air compressor or blower after every use works great.I just spray mine off using an air compressor after I mow.
Who me? It's a 2003 Cub Cadet series 2000 shaft drive 2166 with a 16hp single cyl. Kohler that ran like crap today trying to mow our 2 acres. I knew I shouldn't have washed/wax it the other day....:sidelaughWhat did you say the tractor is you have? I know you told me but forgot.
That's great, but where I live it snows....a lot. Maybe I am lazy, but I don't like digging my tractor out of the snow before I use it to dig out the driveway. I have room so it sits in a shed. Same with the vehicles. My garage is for them, not for all the crap that I have amassed over the years. Also, maybe I am a bit OCD, but I can't stand for things to be dirty.Tractors are made for workin' not cleanin'. They sit outside, not in a curio cabinet in the family room.
There's a 42" cut in that mix for $3500. A 42"!!!Who me? It's a 2003 Cub Cadet series 2000 shaft drive 2166 with a 16hp single cyl. Kohler that ran like crap today trying to mow our 2 acres. I knew I shouldn't have washed/wax it the other day....:sidelaugh
I wonder if he was a dealer that quit carrying Cub or bought out one who did. There is no warranty transfer on Cub Cadets from owner to owner. If I wanted warranty on one of those I'd call Cub Cadet with a serial number in hand and ask them before buying one.Need to get you a new XT3. Some guy on Indiana Craig list has 6 new ones selling out of his yard. Can't figure it out. Real cheap.
