I regularly knock off the big clay balls from plows with water, rinse off grass, dirt etc after mowing/baling etc. Not so much to have a clean & waxed appearance, but so I don't have all that mess in the barn where the tractor & implements are kept. Even with a dirt floor, all that mud/clay/grass etc can start mounding up to a point I wouldn't be able to store everything. Plus the grass attracts hornets - which I really don't enjoy.I've never understood washing a tractor. Sure, it's nice to keep the bonnet free of dust. The seat and instrument panel should be "presentable", But unless you are planning some maintenance or repair work, dirt just soaks up the grease and leaking fluids that are an inevitable part of tractor operation.
Wipe off the parts you need too. (grease fittings, dip sticks and filler ports etc.) then, maybe once in the spring, Wash the tractor with soap, brush, and a hose pipe. Power washers push water into places it shouldn't go!
