It’s that time of the year when no matter how hard you try and how many hours you spend at the weekend cleaning the winter crud from your car; After one trip to work and a jaunt to the supermarket your back end will be filthy !

Post your dirty MK7 rear ends here:

Mine to start with :-

Around here they go straight on the road without cleaning the wheels. Any warning is normally right on top of the mud trail. Very focussing in a car but heart-stopping when travelling fast on two wheels

How do you think you’re supposed to clean that on the field?

Portable jet wash or tanker hose just before joining the road. Here in the UK it is an offence to leave mud/oil/debris on the road liable to cause an accident. I've often wondered how much a 'Have you had an accident not your fault?' lawyer would get out of them

 

Actually, a warning sign far enough up the road to  sensibly slow down and big enough to read would be nice

Same laws here but:
Long story short there are jobs that need you to drive in and out of the field every 15 or so minutes, to clean it decently takes roughly the same and about 0.2-0.5 ton of water. You expect tons of water on every field stashed with a jet wash? Not possible, so like you say a portable one, still needs a container with at least a ton of water and a car with a trailer and another driver to follow you around and refill water, which to do you need actual pump, so another nuisance. Yes, you could wash it with said pump and lose the jetwash but then again it’ll waste that ton in a single wash. Sure it’s possible if you got loads of cash (land) to spare. What if you’re a small farmer that only has one tractor and say only 20ha? You’ll get broke soon just cleaning your wheels.
Whatever you may come up with it’s been thought and tried, it’s just not feasible in real world conditions especially when farmers work only at time provided by weather.
What we do tho is that big brush sweeper thing that sweeps the road, but even then, noone is going to use that all the time, couple times a day or so and even then, only big farms that can afford it and again even those not always get it soo... you’re fighting for already lost cause. Earth is made of dirt, it sometimes gets on roads, deal with it.
