Beautiful pics! As usual, it brings a tear to my eye. I'm just too sentimental.

So what does fluid film do for the underside of your deck? Sorry for not knowing if I should. I thought it was a lube like silicone spray or something.

It keeps grass from sticking to it as well as keeping it from rusting. I highly recommend getting a sample can. You will not regret it.

Dano--get this guy a sample!:waving:

It does nothing for us down here in sandblast country. We don't need it for our mower decks. I use it on my hedge trimmers because it wont hurt the plants at all.

Sandblast country. That's funny. I remember the good old days of cutting grass in Florida! Except my one year in business down there was the year with the record amount of rain.

Be thankful you moved.... it's bad down here now. So many folks are in the lawn buis it's not even funny. You can't get any new buisness that pays anything all the new guys are working so cheap I don't see how they can pay the bills and help. I se so many new truck and trailer rigs I guess everyone lost there jobs and started cutting grass around here.

Yeah it was starting to get like that right before I moved. I was moving anyway, but that only helped concrete my decision. Best of luck to ya down there.

I agree, I have never seen as many new ones as we have this year. Ironic though I have picked up a few new ones that were tired of these overnight wonders and the sloppy work they were paying the cheap prices for. I have only lost two so far this year to the "will cut any size yard for 20 bucks or less" crowd.

I saw a truck today that had $15.00 lawns mowed painted all over the windows with shoe polish with a push mower in the back going down the road.

That is normal. Hopefully they are not your competition. I have no issue with those guys. They take care of the those that care little or not about how the job is done as long as it is done.

Across the street from a place I did a full renovation on, the family uses the flavor of the day company.

As far as I am concerned, BIG DEAL! They don't mean squat to me. I even will offer them iced cold water or gatorade while I am working across the street from them because you know they don't have any.

Smile and wave and know that your taking care of your customers so you have nothing to worry about.

Well put Tamadrummer! Any dip in the economy brings them out down here in Texas; but they never last when they realize how hot it gets here working 9hour days.

Dont get me wrong here, I love fluid film, and I buy it by the gallon, but its a waste on a mower deck. It does absolutely nothing, and I even power washed the deck first. It was spotless.
I think there's a thousand better uses than wasting it on the mower deck.

Its the same way here, however, I have picked up several new ones in the past week and I am nowhere near the cheapest around. I just try to sell myself and let my work do the talking. Clients come and clients go and believe me I get disgusted and want to throw the towel in sometime but I keep crawling back for one more round until I hear the bell ring. I ain't heard it ring just yet!
