    My mower deck is rusting!
    I’m considering using Gempler’s Rust Converter.


    Ever hear of such?


    ...considering it for my rusty trailer too...

    Seveal suppliers make the same type of product. I have used one with Eastwood's label and it dones fine.
    www.eastwoodcompany.com
    They offer several types of same product, liquid, paste, etc. Don't know about a price comparison.

    What Rustic Goat said....

    I have used rust coverter on the areas I could not get completly clean with pretty good results.


    There are many brands. You can find a selection at most auto parts stores.

    Good luck

    I use the Gempler rust converter where I work alot. Its good stuff. I've used it on farm implements, trailers and am in the process of painting a 30 yr old Cat 955 track loader. Follow the directions on the label and all will be ok.
