We got some heavy rain this morning so I took the time to scrape off my deck and put some fresh blades on.

I knew the grass was going to be wet so I decided to try PAM spray on the bottom of the deck. Ive heard some good things about it and thought I would give it a shot.

It worked great! The bottom of my deck stayed clean and there was less clumping with the wet grass.

If anyone hasnt tried it yet I HIGHLY reccomend it.

Not that I noticed but if it gets warm enough you can flip the mower and make a grilled cheese.

I used about a quarter of a can. Gave the whole bottom deck about 2 coats.

I also heard that if you spray it on your trimmer line after you re-spool, your line won't jam up as much when you go to bump tap to feed line. I haven't tried it yet.

Was that the butter flavor or the regular?

Yeap it works great thats why I been telling ya'll that for two years on here. You don't even need PAM name brand, the $1 store brands work just as well. Also on he trimmer line I have never tried it as we use a shot of WD40 on that and have no welding issues.

Well hot-dog! I was gonna order up some Mo-Deck this evening. Instead I'll pick up some non-stick spray at the local Safeway. Im back in business :waving: .

I get around 6-8 coatings on 52-60" decks out of a can. I like the cheap house brand at Costco or BJ's. Anybody try graphite paint?

How long does a good coating last?

I tried the cooking spray and it worked pretty good. I was out of it last weekend and tried one of my free sample fluid film cans. Fluid film works way better than cooking spray, you don't need to use as much and it lasts longer.

Fluid film works great and it has so many other uses. After trying my free sample on all sorts of rusted and prone to rust items, I was sold. I bought a case because unfortunately it's not readily available in the area at a reasonable price.

Even cheaper - get one of those re-usable self pump cooking oil sprayers - fill it half way with regular canola or corn oil (about $1 per gal), pump it up and have at it -john.
