    Default Cleaner?

    Any suggestions on a safe cleaner to remove white pine sap from hood, sides, fenders and loader arms? I know most cleaners will take this off, just a little concerned about plastic and paint.
    Thanks guys!

    Two cleaners I really like

    Honda cleaner - from any powersports store - this is awesome stuff.
    GooGone - to take off sticky/gooey adhesive messes

    Is Simple Green good on plastics ? I notice on their instructions is says not to use on automotive instrument panels and to "protect from overspray". Given the size of these tractors, controlling "overspray" at times is easier said then done [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Diesel Fuel may work to remove the pine tar, but be sure you get the fuel cleaned off as it will eat the paint over time, per JD manual

    I like orange cleaners. Ok, I almost like them they don't taste nearly as good as you'd think...
