About half the water I sprayed was blasting right back into my face. A large amount of that spray carried leaves, grease, blobs of mud, sticks, mice nests, about everything. My vision was not as clear through my grease covered Oakleys as I would have preferred. I got to working on this stubborn batch of dirt and twigs which was later revealed to actually be a rather expensive Cannon SLR...

Um what is that rack hanging below the battery? Is that a ladder that used to help you climb?

The utility compartment cleaned up nicely. It also houses the air filter.

I sealed the rusty floor, then added back the rubber matt

Just a foot step to help you climb up to preflight the engine prior to using, and to refuel the thing. It came prebent, so I didn't need to! ;-))

Luckily for you if it hadn’t then you probably have just torn it off altogether. I mean why do things half way?  :popcorn:

Everything else came out pretty nice, ridding the thing of a decade or two of junk! I'm leaving most of the insides unpainted (I think) And will concentrate on all the dented panels and missing paint and rust everywhere else.

There is a reason

CARREP: Apparently, and I checked my Cannon owners manual, but the camera is not designed for pressure washing it would appear.

Picked up the new line, $155 for a 50" piece of hose with ends, but all in all, I'd say that's OK. I plan to cut the bad end off that separated from what looks like a fairly recent Gates hose that failed. Maybe it was just a bad crimp job, but the hose was pulling out of the fitting, and had not failed at all, just a bad crimp job.

The lines going outward on top of the boom are all crooked and twisted, just poor repair work at some time. I think I'll disconnect all that and put it together correctly.

As you can see most of the lines are in good condition. When these machines are living in production by multiple operators, no one really cares and goes about slamming the booms and dipper-sticks and buckets into everything often resulting in torn off lines. I have babied the thing and will continue to do so as time is not money with me. I think a heavy duty machine like this one can live indefinitely in a low use farm setting like mine. Anyway, I'll do my part and keep it serviced and hope for full usage even into my son's time after I leave the earth.
