So once it's up in the air, do you just flood the front of the panel with open running hose without a nozzle, or blast it out with a nozzle under high pressure? And that really cleans it well? I end up in some nasty slop sometimes that is unavoidable. Hate cleaning out lbs. of mud from belly pans, but it needs to be done.The .5'' skids are great but they do add alot of weight to the machine. The best way to clean the skids is to stand the machine up. I use my skidsteer but a chain hoist or cumalong and a tree work too.
