    ya like others mentioned, it should not take anywhere near an hour to clean the deck out, and change out blades, maybe 10-15 minutes maximum

    my paint is long gone under the deck. it's not from water though it's from the sand in the soil here. :laugh:

    Clean it and put some Graphite coating on it to save it man.

    I just got done with all my jobs today usually would of been 1:30 to 2:30 with old mower knocked them out in 3hrs and 45mins with the new deere WOWSERS

    5 in 1 tool to clean. Sand will do that to blades.

    not worried about the deck really. the mower will be useless by the time the deck wears out. :laugh:

    Well it can help save the deck and also make it easier to clean with graphite on

    I think that the weather this year is about 3/4 of my problem.

    I have never had such a problem in the past. I typically pressure wash the decks every other week and inspect the blades. This year, every other day I am pressure washing out the deck.

    I do have to say that we are having a lot more rain in North Dakota then we have had in the past.

    Thanks to everyone for the advise! I do know that I need to spend more time doing repairs and keeping the mowers clean.

    The best answer is buy a Walker. Flip two levers and the deck tilts up 90 deg. to be easily cleaned.
