    What does everyone use to scrape their decks? Do you spray your decks? What do you use?

    I just use a putty knife and do it on a daily basis pretty much.

    every time I change/sharpen my blades I scrape the deck. which for me is usually daily.

    pressure washing will allow water to get into the spindles and shorten there life considerably.

    I throw my mulch plate and gators on and go mulch leaves (which works quite awesome I'm finding out, used to be from the bag everything only crowd, used to...) for like 2 weeks. The bottom of your deck will be polished clean.

    I scrape with a beehive tool and then spray with FluidFilm. I doesn't necessarily keep grass from sticking but makes it easier to scrape off next time.
