Clean your machine after each use. Dirt, dust, rain, and crop residue can be damaging when mixed with grease and oil on your equipment. Storing your machinery inside when it is not being used will also help keep it clean and dry. Be sure to wash your machine daily, weekly, monthly etc depending on what type of material you're working with. It will add to the life of your machine and help cut down on costly repairs! Corrosive chemicals such as fertilizer and pesticides should be washed off as soon as possible. Pressure washing with hot soapy water and then rinsing is best!
