How to clean Agricultural Equipment

Most large agricultural equipment can be cleaned quickly with a high pH (alkaline) detergent, foamer to apply the chemical and a high pressure rinse.

Using a high pressure rinse to break up very large clumps of mud prior to cleaning is recommended. For best results, chemicals should be applied to a dry surface.

One-Step Touchless Cleaning:

  • Clean your ag equipment from front to back and in small vertical sections (8-10 feet wide)
  • Step 1: Apply a high pH (alkaline) detergent to the ag equipment surface using a Foam Maxx foamer
    • When applying the chemical, foam it on from the bottom of the ag equipment to the top of the ag equipment
  • Step 2: Allow for a short dwell time 45-60 seconds
    • If you are washing ag equipment outdoors, ensure you do not allow any chemical to dry on the surface of your ag equipment
  • Step 3: Use warm water (90°F – 100°F) for your high pressure rinse and rinse the ag equipment section from top to bottom
    • Maintain your high pressure nozzle within 18 inches of the surface and a spray angle of 15° – 45°
  • Repeat Steps 1-3 until your ag equipment is clean.
  • The best high pH product to use for one-step cleaning is HEL100 Hellcat or THU100 Thunderbolt
