Keep it clean

A little plastic strip between the tyre and mudguard reduces the amount of spray coming off the wheels and blown on to both the windscreen and bonnet. It’s said to be surprisingly effective.

Operators who take a bit of pride in keeping their tractors clean may be interested in this simple idea. The John Deere driver noticed that when driving along wet roads the spray picked up by the front wheels would soon dirty his clean tractor. To reduce the problem he bolted a curtain to the underside of the front mudguard, using the existing brackets to hold the 5mm thick strip of plastic in place. With just a few mm of clearance it acts like a scraper and reduces the amount of spray coming off the wheels.
