Just wondering how you all clean your gear. I'll clear out the bottom of the ztr mulch deck once a week with a plastic paint scraper to get rid of any hard build up, other than that my gear would be lucky to get a once over from the blower vac once a week. 2 years and haven't had a problem yet.
I saw one guy recently who was washing his equipment like a car, literally buckets of soap and sponge. I envy his dedication to keeping clean but surely its not worth the effort.
