    Why does that matter. It will only get dirty again the first time you use it. Just blow off xs grass and keep the head greased.

    I'd agree at not bothering to clean it. When I grease them I wire brush around the nuts so as to not accidentally push any dirt in. If you really want to make them spotless all the time I'd try wonder wipes.

    I brush under the guard and around the head after use to dislodge the grass to stop it from drying and sticking inside ,   It speaks volumes though , pride in your tools equals pride in your work , great attitude .

    Thanks John and Robbie. I bought it new a few weeks ago and would like to keep it looking nice. I am doing regular oil changes and check it over. It's got to last.

      Just be aware that too much cleaning of machinery can be worse than not. particularly if using a pressure washer as water can be forced into bearings etc and grease pushed out. I've never washed my Sthil strimmer and it's still going strong after 12 years.

        This. Make sure you run it up after washing or the clutch will seize. Been there, done that. As much as I appreciate my guys taking pride in their tools I've had to ask them to stop cleaning the strimmers- they get filthy again in five minutes use anyway!

    Curiosity got the better of me... Wonder wipes get all the dried on grass (my strimmer is a kombi strimmer from 2007) off perfectly well.
