    What kind of paint do you use on the underside of the mower decks? The toughest stuff I have found is polyurathane (sp?). Is there any other kind of product besides this that is stronger?

    Thanks, Rich

    you can get 2 part epoxy paint from sherwin williams. It's for painting bridges. But rocks and dirt will still eat it up after a while.

    my local engine repairman painted a very old reel mower yellow and green. the engine and wheels(iron wheels) were yellow, and the mower was green. it looks cool!!
