 Dirty Tractor

Just got through brush hogging my two acres of waiste high weeds and grass with my TC 24. Weeds and grass were lots taller than in the past because of all the spring rains we had this year. Any way my tractor was just loaded with weed seed, cheat grass and other debris. I tried to get off all I could with shop vac but still some left in the hard to get places around the PTO shield, axle housing and and other areas. Blowing it out would be the ideal way of cleaning it out but I have no compressor. I was thinking about power washing it but wonder if I will do more harm than good?

Pressure wash will work good. Just be careful and do not aim the hi-pressure water at seals and pins that take grease. The hi pressure will push what you r trying to remove into those cavities.

A back or hand held leaf blower works as well or better than compressed air, I have tried both, and switch between them.

You could also try a shop vac.

As mentioned pressure washers can get water where you don't want it, and if you are not super careful they can remove paint/finish also. Just be gentle with it :--)

dk,

If you will look at a post from just a week or two back you will find where a person pressure washed their tractor and had problems with relay(s).

There is also the lower pressure garden hose and of course you can back away from it with the presssure washer.

Start with the garden hose.... you may just be happy with the results at that level.

Every time I point the pressure washer at the tractor I end up with globs of grease all over me and everything else. It gets tracked in the house and it is real hard to clean off your glasses and clothing.

I get fairly decent results with my leaf blower. I use it when I cannot use compressed air. I pressure wash mine occasionally but not real often. I am not real comfortable doing that with so many electrical components on the tractor.

Most auto supply places, or the auto. dept. of bigger stores, maybe Wally World even, have "no scrub" carwash soap.

It's the stuff that looks like coloured shaving cream that they use in those "no touch" car washes. The foam is very thick and has some chemical that traps the dirt in it.

All you do is wet the vehicle down with water, then switch over to spray this foam (it comes with a pistol-type spray dispenser) and let it sit for a few minutes, as the foam slides down the surface it takes all the dirt with it.

We use it all the time to keep our units looking shiny and new. It's great for us because all you need is water, it can even be from a creek or pond.

Best of luck.

I wouldn't worry too much about getting water in the grease joints. Just wash the tractor and clean up the extra grease and water around the joints with a rug, then give a few pumps with a grease gun and that should get the water out of the joints.

Now the electric panel is a whole different matter, see the thread that KT is referring to.

I've found a product I buy from Dollar General store or WalMart called Greased Lightning works great---just spray it on, let it sit for a minute and hose it off. You may need to wipe it while it's wet for nasty areas.

You gotta be careful with Greased Lightening. Great stuff to remove grease and such. But if left on paint, it can wreck the paint. We foudn taht out when we were racing. Greased Lightening rep went around and handed out cases of it to all the teams in the series. So we used as it's great for removing the annoying black marks on the nose of the car from the rubber marbles getting flung up. But, if you let it sit on the paint, the paint would bubble up. So we learned to be careful using it.
