Washing with power

After each job, we clean up the machines with an air compressor and leaf blower, then take it to its next station to be washed. Liz and I were the lucky ones to have washed this time. It really is an icky job. There is no possible way to keep clean. What do you expect when working with power? Washing sure sounds like an easy job, but you really have to wash the machine twice. First time around, you wash all of the nooks and crannies, including the grain tank and engine compartment. Then the second time around, you wash the outside, scrubbing your way around. By the end of the job, your arms feel like jelly and your joints and muscles want to give out. Washing the big, green machines is hard work! Thankfully it is a cool job in this Oklahoma heat.

    You girls are workers and a lot of guys could not keep up with you.
    Glad you are all doing ok.
    We have had a lot of rain here in south central Ks. south of Wichita 60 miles. Every week we have had some rain. Usually just few hours one day and then quit for rest of week. My Brother has some hay to get cut and baled,but just about the time it is dry enough another rain hits. That is life on the farm. Well stay safe . Thanks for keeping everyone knowing how you are doing. Sharon Drake

    I understand why you have to clean your machines after each farm, to keep from spreading weeds and diseases. That’s got to be why ya,ll are always having bearing troubles. Great following your blogs through wheat harvest, sitting here in Tennessee.
