    Hey guys Im buying a Dixie this week and before I put it to use I wanted to undercoat the deck with something to help it from caking up and to protect it, any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't know if this will help you since you are up north but down here we have a lot of sand that will eat everything up. To help slow this down some guys will spray the rubber undercoating that you spray in wheel wells on the bottom of the deck, then the sand will have to go through this first. Just keep touching it up when it wears out. I really don't think you need to spray anything on, it should be ok from the factory.

    Try spraying some Pam, or anything of that sort underneath the deck. You will have to re- apply, but it works pretty good. DOnt know if this was what you were looking for, but it might help
     
  4. From the thread title was thinking "blades".

    Some guys use Pam and some use Mo-Deck sold in our very own Lawnsite store.

    I use nothing.

    pam may attract insects to your deck while it's not in use

    But they sure would leave in a hurry when you started using that deck!

    Double blades is the best thing to avoid caking under the deck. When that happens down here I just look for a stick to run over...........knocks it right out!
