yup, time to get some cages on my trailer with some locks. Talked to the guy I used to work for and he had 3 brand new backpacks stolen in Mission Hills 2 weeks ago. Last week he had a complete truck and trailer stolen down at Kemper Arena. They found it 2 hours later in Raytown with nothing missing.

I kinda find this ironic since i have 2 lawns near 75th & Holmes and nothings happened yet? but I've locked up my enclosed whenever I'm in a back yard or when I'm not around, where in mission hills was it? I have a nice upscale account I want to be careful and not end up losing one of my machines.

Not to sure. He takes care of 30 or 40 yards down there.

Try Fluid Film or spray cooking oil. It keep the grass from sticking to the bottom of the deck.

I clean mine off every night when I sharpen. Clean decks keep the grass moving. I also hose them off so diseases are not transfered from one lawn to the next.

PAM works well but I suggest getting the fluid film. Its also a rush inhibitor. Its like WD-40 on steroids.
