Here is the cutting deck on my new 61 inch Wildcat with the velocity plus deck. Mower has 11.2 hours on it since new and has cut dry and wet lawns, Crabgrass infested lawns and fescue lawns etc.... I have not scrapped the deck or sprayed any kind of anti stick spray under there. The deck has little build up at all, and I can tell you that no other mower I have used - besides the Everride I demoed - would have had this little amount of build up after cutting the 52 lawns I cut with it since I got it last tuesday. This deck is great, cuts great, could not be happier!!!!
