    Is this Modeck stuff as good as they claim? No problem keeping the topside blown off after use, but having trouble keeping the underside clean. What do you use to clean your deck with and how often? :confused: :confused:

    Gasket scraper. It's like a cross between a screwdriver and a putty knife... I could use a putty knife but sometimes the stuff is so packed tight that I'm not sure it would get through it as easily...

    I have used Mo-Deck and for me it did work pretty good. Cut the amount of grass under the deck down by alot. However i do not do as much mowing as most people on here, only mow contract houses. Before that i used a pressure washer to clean the underside of the deck.

    I havent honestly cleaned the underside of my deck...I dont touch it cuz within 2 lawns it will be just as dirty. If it wasent for changing blades I would never peak under the deck.

    The deck on my ZTR doesn't let grass build up. So I never have to scrape.
