I've done this for the last 20 years or so which includes an Ariens self propelled (lasted 14 years) and a Honda HRX217 (lasted 9 years). I did run into a problem with a drive cam on the Honda that seemed to be caused by rusted wheel shaft assembly, and that could have certainly been attributed to water exposure over the years, but I typically start the mower afterwards, engage the blade to 'dry' the deck, and towel it down or hit it with the leaf blower or both to get any excess water off the engine areas and top deck areas.

Wondering what others have to say about this practice?
Don't wash them ever.....a lot of stuff connecti8ns bearingmare not water proof. Just no reason to wash a machine blow it off.

I recently bought a Timemaster and I think it has the high lift blades. I primarily mulch and from what I've read from others the low lift blades are better since they rob less power and less build up under the deck. I've looked at blades online and see part #20120 for replacement blades, are these the low or high lift version? If not what are the #'s I need to have?
