I'm relatively notorious for keeping my stuff clean, and habitually wash all of my equipment after each use because I hate putting anything away dirty - typically just a water hose / spray nozzle with some Simple Green to clean grimy spots and then towel dry the shiny parts. I may use some Griot's Speed Shine periodically to keep the plastics glossy but I don't use wax on the tractor or implements as simply removing the dirt quickly (and repairing scratches) tends to keep it looking good enough for my satisfaction.
Waxing of course has benefits beyond appearance, but it's not something I'm willing to take on with equipment that has to get dirty to perform its function. My equipment is also stored indoors, if it was not I would likely wax the tractor plastics at least annually.
I don't normally get the 1025R that dirty in what is most often mowing or pavement/concrete snowblowing use, if I was digging around moving dirt/ mud routinely I'm sure it would be much more time consuming to keep clean. I have a powerwasher for that type of cleaning of course, but it sits most of the time.
I can see how somebody that runs a tractor daily moving dirt would lean towards infrequent or interval based cleaning.
