2002 Super Surfer w/52" deck: I have rust coming through the paint at the welds of the frame for the front casters, under the pivots for the deck chains, and on the deck between vertical and horizontal pieces. Machine is stored in garage and is meticulously kept clean!!! The paint is now flaking off at above positions. Power washer has not been used for cleaning--just hand washing. Did Great Dane fail to clean welds prior to coating? Dissappointed Great Dane owner!! My last two John Deere units (455 & 4100)never had rust problems like the SS. At this rate of deterioration the machine is not going to last long enough.
