    How often does everyone get down and scrape their mower deck?
    And tips or tricks?

    I am paranoid about wet grass...I can't stand it even for a day!

    That's about when I do it. I just didn't think I was doing it often enough. Do you guys spray on anything? Is it worth it?

    I will scrape deck as needed....no set time period. Usually when you start to see a poor cut......looks alot like when the blades are dull.

    I change blades daily( almost allways) and scrape then. I tried mow ease, wd-40 and they didn't seem to make a difference.
    Though there was a thread last week with lots of replys on deck coating suggestions.
