    Has anyone ever found a coating that you put on the bottom of the deck that will help keep it clean???

    You can probably do a search and come up with a dozen pages to help you out, but i use WD-40 or non-stick cooking spray. The WD-40 seems to work a little better for me. I clean out the deck really well, then spray the WD-40 under there, and then every time I change the blades I check for build-up spots and re-apply as needed.

    WD-40, inexpensive and seems to last about a month.

    I could not get Fluid Film locally , but it was easy to order by phone. I get it by the case and , imo, it is superior for your application - and about anything else , for that matter.

    Fluid Film is the best ive used. it keeps the deck clean and keeps the mower going! and everything else has a coat of F.F on it too, from the truck bumber to the trailer gates!
