Pressure Washers and Cleaning Farm Equipment

by Hotsy
on June 28, 2018

There are 35.7 million acres of land in Iowa and of that, over 30 million acres are covered in farmland. That’s around 30 million football fields! It takes a lot of farm equipment to tend to that land. When that equipment gets dirty and caked in mud, it can lead to downtime and problems. You have no time for that, so use your Hotsy Pressure washer when you’re cleaning farm equipment.

Maintaining Tractors with Power Washers

Our industrial-grade pressure washers have the power behind them to clean cultivators, plows, and other types of large farm equipment. They’re also rugged enough to survive life on a farm. With over 100 models to choose from, Hotsy’s industrial and commercial-grade pressure washers can tackle mud, grease, manure, and pretty much anything else that can get stuck on a tractor.

Increase Farm Equipment Performance

Not only can keeping your farming equipment clean help maintain it, it can increase performance. When caked-on dirt and manure is weighing down your machine, it can lead to bigger, more permanent problems. By clearing it away regularly with a blast of water, you could prolong the service life of the machine.

Hot vs. Cold Water Pressure Washers

At Hotsy, we offer both hot and cold water power washers for cleaning farm equipment. You can certainly cut through mud and dust with cold water when the pressure output is high. However, if you really want to slice through grease, a pressure washer that uses hot water is often your best bet. Because the heat can help penetrate grime faster, these pressure washers often end up being much more efficient when used on the farm.

Detect Machinery Problems Early

By keeping your machines clean, you can often learn about any potential issues earlier than you may have, had the equipment been covered in dirt. For instance, a leak could be hiding or partially protected by debris. Broken pieces of equipment may be underneath a large chunk of mud. These are things that can become problems when you’re in the middle of a field. It’s much easier to address these issues while in your barn or shed.

Regularly Maintaining Machines with Power Washing

The more frequently you’re washing your tractors and other farm equipment, the easier each wash will be. If you go months without addressing the cleanliness of your machines, once you need to clear off the gunk, it’s going to be more of a chore. Just like with anything you depend on to do your work, it’s important to stick to a regular maintenance schedule. It’ll make your life easier in the end.
