    Does anybody know of any good ways to keep the bottom of my deck from getting clogged with grass? does anybody make any kind of coating or anything that would help the grass not stick underneath? I got a 36" hustler and the deck is shallow so it holds a lot of grass and i gotta clean it out all the time. any suggestions that'll actually work?

    There is probably some sort of paint you could coat it with that would help. I also wonder if that silicone stuff they use for keeping snow from sticking on plows would work also...but I don't know I am a rookie.

    Ive been using floor wax on my decks for years you get the stuff that is kind of milky looking clean the deck and use a spray bottle to put it on i do it every couple of weeks or when needed

    does the floor wax really do a decent job?

    Mo Deck works good but has to be re -applied often. Try Fluid Film also.

    Both products have websites.

    Hope this helps!!

    Fluid Film works good and its good to have around the shop too, good penetrate oil and a good lubricating spray

    Fluid Film or Pam Cooking Oil. Spray it on daily. Both of them work great.

    I think Peco makes something like what you are talking about, but I can't find a link to it online.

    Or you could just buy a Scag with their V+ deck. I've seen them cut through grass with the heaviest dew on it in the morning, no clumping or anything. Just a nice cut and a solid dispersal.
