    Does anyone use any spray or liquids to keep the grass from building up under the mower deck? I've seen a spay on ebay and I've heard of people using lighter fluid. The lighter fluid seems a little dangerous too me. I usually just scrape off the grass with a puddy knife when I change the blades. Just wondering if their is an easier way.

    I've heard of people using Pam and also spraying bed liner. I am trying pam this weekend to see if it works.

    I use pam on my decks. It works fairly well. I coat the crap out of them though otherwise it does not work as good.

    They don't cal WD-40 the Wonder Drug for nothing. I use WD-40 on my deck and never have to clean it. Just re-apply a coating once a week or so.

    As I have posted many times on here Cooking Spray such as PAM works great. I actually use the store brand that is even cheaper and spray everytime we change blades.

    Just mow some thin bahia lawns and all that gunk will get sandblasted off.

    I spray WD-40 on the deck every time I change the blades. any grass that does get stuck, just comes right off.
