Best degreaser I've found: 1/2 cup of Ammonia + 1/2 cup of Dawn in quart spray bottle topped with hot water. Used outside. Soak for 10 minutes. Brush if heavy layer. Rinses right off. Works for me.
Not responsible for misuse.

Looks like you did a good job cleaning. When washing/blasting a tractor where does all the grunge go? My dog eats everything, only wipe stuff with a rag, can't blast it or he might find it

but oldford you really gotta keep on top of it for that to be all that is needed. I have not had any of my units since new, the one I am working on now is 44 years old, but I have only had it about a month or so. All that is there, was left for me by past owners. and it is hard, caked on.

Wash parts on crete drive, witch flows down to the GRAVEL drive that soaks it all up, OR if big enough water flow, starts rolling down the paved hill road and disperses on the way. If I wash on gravel only, it splashes up all over the just cleaned areas and is never ending washing it off. When done on crete, can power wash it clean and down to gravel and DONE! I always get offers to pave this little stretch, but it is my dirty wash, thinners and cleaners dump of the world. AND, even the dirty sandblasting sand gets spread around there. No Environment issues here from ME!
