Well, "Fluid Film is a solvent free, lanolin based rust/corrosion preventive and lubricant that provides long term protection and lubrication for all metal ..."

So, basically you spray it on the bottom of the deck... And it prevents rust, and grass has trouble sticking to it... It prolongs the life of your mower (well, the deck and what not...) We dont use it, but we should...


It costs between $8-10 a can (aerosol)... Heres the web site...

http://www.fluid-film.com/

Heres is what the website says...
"Lawnmower Decks

Fluid Film prevents corrosion and eases in removal of grass build up. Apply to a clean deck. Fluid Film bulk applied with a paint brush works best for this application. "

Their are ppl from the company here... Heres their pages, if you want to know more..

Yeah the picture doesn't do justice to the cut. I really like the machine. I would recomend it to anyone. I am glad that i spent the extra to get the commercial grade mower.

Thanks again.
