Heavy Equipment

 Heavy equipment is washed similarly to fleet washing: the difference being that there is a lot more mud and grease as well as hydraulic lines.

  • Make a mental not of how to approach the process of cleaning the equipment, where to park, where to begin and direction of the wind.
  • Set up equipment and supplies to minimize moving your vehicle and maximize hose usage.
  • Turn on detergent valve.
  • Use only a biodegradable detergent. “Biodegradable” refers to detergent that is not harmful to humans, vegetation, or pets. “Detergent” refers to a water based solution
  • Pre-soak entire machine.
  • Start with hydraulic lines and articulating joints.
  • Spray all grease and mud to outside of machine.
  • Then work body from top to bottom.
  • Wash every part of the machine that can be reached by kneeling and bending over
  • If you can see it – wash it!
  • Turn detergent valve off and rinse with clear water.
  • Concentrate on windows, removing excess detergent.
