    This is a random thought, but what about the truck bed liner stuff? Not the non slip, but more like the rhino liner?

    There have been a lot of threads on this subject here, and some of the guys who posted in them have tried this idea along with about every conceivable idea you can imagine. It's like a sand blaster under a deck even in thick lush grass, not to mention the grass itself acts like a scouring pad, and nothing lasts for long under there. One of the guys who tried the lining stuff said (IIRC) he either did it twice a year, or at the start of every season and it was expensive, and the wet grass still stuck to it.

    I've thought about this to but just seems a waste of time and money. I don't think it would last even a couple of weeks.

    I've seen the ones about fluid film and all that jazz. Just haven't caught one regarding the actual liners.

    It was at least a couple years back. One of them may have been one that got deleted a while back for some reason. Probably two of the guys couldn't get along/agree on this subject and things got nasty or something.

    Honestly, it would be sick to polish it to a high shine and see how it performed. I know you would have to keep it polished, but can you imagine how slick that would throw grass?

    Some sort of polished industrial hard chrome like they use on firearms might work, but that would still get the sand blast treatment over a fairly short time.

    You would think with Rotary mowers reaching the 100 years of being in production we would have this problem fixed! Haha! All these seem like great ideas!
