Nothing important really, but I drove down to the local walmart for a bath and ran into some agricultural discrimination. :lol:

That's not farm equipment, that's your lawn mower, isn't it?

Bet you could get away with it. You'd have trouble getting away quickly if they caught you though.

It may look like a tractor, but it's a low speed recreational vehicle.

My guess, the restrictions have to do with local, state, and or federal regulations on waste water discharge. 2nd guess, if this is a busy car wash, Walmart doesn't want to hire full time personnel to continuously clean the oil and debris separators.

Two in town car wash stations. You can wash all the equipment prohibited in the Walmart sign. There can be and usually is a lot of debris on dump trucks and construction equipment.
I have an excuse. CRS.

In a younger life I worked on a USAC dirt sprint car team. After every race the first thing you do is find the closest car wash to that track and get all the mud off the car. I could imagine the mess we made and plumbing issues we caused at those poor places. In retrospect, I'm probably part of the reason for the sign. :lol: Although I'm sure my tractor is cleaner than the cars we brought there, that sign doesn't say anything about race cars...

If you have never been around a car wash when it is being cleaned, most of the older ones have a large pit under each bay that collects the dirt and debris in the bottom and a drain near the top drains the water off to the storm drain or sewage drain system. Someone has to remove the grate and get down in there and shovel the mess out into a truck and haul it off. Not a fun job. I can understand if in a larger town or city not wanting that extra debris in there.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

It's all about meeting the EPA state permit for the used water.

Understandable. I've come across stalls after someone cleaned their 4x4 off after a day of mudding. At least mud will dissolve and go down the drain.

rejection or discrimination? Take two wheels off it's a motorcycle? Lol :worthy:

As a kid working in a gas station in the wash bay I had to clean the traps. Great job in the springtime when they washed the sand from there cars all winter. Never found any money.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
