    My tractor gets waxed every spring with mothers automotive wax. I wax everything that's painted with exception of 3 point hitch, engine, etc. I like my tractor to look good but the main reason for my yearly wax is to keep everything slick in effort to make weeds, briars, etc etc slide on the painted surfaces without scratching as bad. I may be wasting my time with the preventive scratch efforts but it appears to help.

    I wax mine every spring and anytime I want to make my wife upset. She can't stand it she thinks it crazy and a waste of time. Says I should be waxing my car but I point out I get a different car every five years where my 420 is a 92 I had since new until 8/16 then I got my 1025 and my 420 went to stay at my sons. I use a wax called ICE easy on and off.

    I don't wax or soap wash any equipment. I rinse off the dust and debris once in a while and pressure wash before servicing or when I've been in the mud. I'm not against washing and waxing, it's just not something I want to do and equipment that looks less than new doesn't bother me a bit.

    I use Turtle Wax Ice. It's not the longest lasting wax out there but it was originally recommended because you can wipe it on the plastic and rubber parts and it cleans right off and doesn't leave any white residue.

    I wax my tractor every spring and give it a few gentle washings during the year as needed. I do not use a pressure washer. I just use a regular hose set on gentle spray. For any grimy build up I give it a squirt of Fantastik and then rinse off.

    I know it's just a tractor but it doesn't take much effort to keep it looking good so why not. I do the same thing with the lawn tractor.

    I agree hard to pay that much money for something and not keep it looking good

    Exactly. It is also worth it to me to help keep the trade/resell value as high as possible.

    Guess I’m just a Tractorholic can’t put my 1023 e away without wash and touch up McGuires quick detailer in between waxing . I use all McGuires products every 4 months it gets a full wax including the rims, loader and mower. Purchase last spring and use 2-3 time a week at least and it looks like it came out of the showroom. Love Green!
