    Default Washed/waxed my 3130 today...

    If you've never washed under the "floor mat," I would highly recommend doing so. Couldn't believe all the dirt and stuff under there. Probably wouldn't be a good sight if you've spread a lot of fertilizer or salt. Now it's all clean and I'm ready to get it dirty!

    I should do the same thing with my B3030. A new coat of wax wouldn't hurt. You should take a pic before it gets all dirty again.

    BTW welcome to TBN

    Gotta leave a little dirt on,or the Mrs. might start thinking your not useing the investment enough....which may lead to less attachments.

    Another place where dirt etc.. collects motor and frame...you be surpirse.

    How hard was it to pull up the floor mat? Could you use the plastic attachment
    buttons over again?

    My floor mat has been frozen to the metal since November and will stay that way till May. On the plus side, ice keeps the dirt out.

    Wax a tractor? I suppose, if it's in the sun all the time.

    I waxed it too - part of my annual ritual. Did take a little ribbing about that from my wife.

    The plastic tabs are reusable just use a firm steady pull to remove them. You could also probably push a little from the bottom if needed. I put a little armour all on them before putting them back on.

    While yous are waxing and washing down there in Dixie us Northerners are hoping ours will start in the sub zero and very deep snow conditions so we can get down our driveways and get to work. Seasons are great though. {As you get older the heat of the south sounds better to me though!}
