Has anybody used the product Mo-Deck? This is a polymer spray that is applied (spray can) to the underside of the mower deck and it should keep the grass from accumulating. Last year I started using diesel fuel/motor oil mixture sprayed on the deck and had good results. Thanks, Rich

Haven't seen or heard of that one, Rich, although I, too, use diesel (75%) and motor oil (25%) for that purpose.

Must be something new.
I have heard people useing Pam food spray before,but I use WD40 and seems to work fine.

Thomas, I thought WD-40 ought to work, too, but it didn't work very well for me. By the way, do you know where the name "WD-40" came from?

If I got this right, /w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif the name for WD40 means...<font color=blue>W<font color=blue><font color=black>ater Displacement was perfected on the <font color=black><font color=blue>40<font color=blue><font color=black>th try.

"WD-40 is (surprise, surprise) the 40th formulation of a Water-Displacement product created for use in missile silos at the request of Big Uncle. An enterprising engineer, finding how much of the stuff disappeared with co-workers, contacted the company that made it and persuaded them to package and sell it on the civilian market.

And you thought your tax dollars were spent foolishly!

Properly used, WD-40 penetrates and loosens stick parts, dissolves dried greases, and displaces water, reducing rusting. It works as a light lubricant for a time, but the lighter molecules evaporate, leaving a sticky residue which attracts dust and binds small parts.

It's great for "renewing" ammo cans, and will remove label
adhesive from anything, including computer floppy disks"

Yep, Thomas, that's what I'd heard about the origin of the name. And Dave, how did we ever get along without it?
