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.
