I suggest getting a proper fire extinguisher before you have to learn another lesson. That water and sprayer won't work on a fuel leak that catches fire.

I have had a big fire extinguisher with me since day one but have had several people in our area with cotton pickers that have burnt say they just wasted time trying to use it on a fire like that.I have only had one or two small fires over the years and have always had good luck soaking it with water and then blowing it off the combine with air.

Dust fires caused by extreme heat are definitely better extinguished by water. Like someone else said, dry bean dust is highly flammable stuff, so removing it is prudent. The best scenario is to have access to both water and a chemical extinguisher, and take precautions so that fires don't start in the first place.
