Looks nice, alot better than my Prestiges. They are currently colored in earth tones..bathed in mud.  A growing percentage of my mowing is now perpetually under water.Several section cant even be driven over.

I actually was stuck in mud up the the deck on my mower. ...had to break out the ATV to push the mower out of the mud....what a mess.

Am I the only person who gives his toys a pseudo regular bath? I give the machines a liberal dose of Purple Power, open a beer and let them soak a while, then hose them off. If you leave full strength Purple Power on too long, it will etch or completely remove the paint. Someone learned that the hard way a long time ago... My old customers like the idea of bringing their toys to me to work on. I hate working in slime, so I wash before doing anything else. Their toys come back looking nearly new.

Good looking tractor wash job! The machine is happier when it is clean.

Been using an aluminum deck push mower more this year than the last 25 years combined. Makes you sleep well. Ground felt squishy yesterday, I wear 50 year old HS football shoes to aerate!

While they sure look purtty after a bath, I can't get myself to hose tractors down much for fear of getting water in the electrical system and various bearings. Good blow-off with an air nozzle works for me.

problem is--cant blow off mud or muddy water. ibow and wipe everything right after

and elevate the tractor for runoff. usually not rinsed under the hood area.
