    Anyone tried spraying water into the deck while mowing to reduce dust? You probably wouldn't have to spray water in constantly, (maybe have an on/off valve for the dusty spots) but I'm hoping it would help. I think I still have dust in my lungs tonight. Maybe one of those Meuthwash devises would work?

    back when mercedes still raced lemans (flying car) the brakes were cooled by heated water from the engine, cold water would have made the rotor more suspectable to fracturing.

    my fact for your day

    seriuosly, good idea though

    One use of the back pack blowers with a misting (sprayer) attachment is to knock down the dust when blowing in partially enclosed areas such as parking garages. I didn't see the results but the people using the blowers were very pleased with the results. They claimed they could cut down on most of the dust and still clean the garage.
