Maybe I missed it, but it sure would be good, if they touched on these issues

before someone gets hurt.

The article you posted tells how to deal with it. Take it outside. What I want to know is how to get a mower deck in a plastic garbage can.

A really small deck and a really large garbage can.

A childs plastic swimming pool from wallys world might work of coarse throw it away when done or never let the kiddies use it.

I'd experiment with a simple wood frame and poly sheet.

 

I have no idea how long it would last, but, all things considered, it only has to last long enough.

I use this method and found that it works best if you start fresh with each item you clean, within reason.  Dump the water, clean the anodes good, and clean the tank, pail or container what ever size it may be.  I have tried to skim the top and add more soda but it don't work.  I use a 5 gl. pail for small items and 30 gal mineral tub for large items.  For a mower deck, better get you an old fuel barrel and cut it in half.  Your chemical cost is 0

I use a 42" X 42" X 42" liquid tote, hold 300 GA. with the top cut out of it for my really big stuff. It will hold a complete John Deere 200-300 series fender pan and do it in one shot. I lined mine with expanded metal sheets, pieces I had left over from jobs and it works well for my anode. The tote also has a 1" ball valve drain built into the bottom of it to drain the water out.

I used to get a speciality chemical in 275 gallon totes and the chemical manufacture didn't want them back...too much trouble to ship back  and re-use, so I gave them away.....Other-wise they cost around $300.

 

Check with a water or waste-water utility or a plating business. They use LOTS of chemicals and maybe have a tote to get rid of!

When they build concrete roads the wet concrete is coated with wax which comes in these containers.   Some companies give the containers away.

I get mine from a company that gets liquid smoke in them. They don't charge me for them.
