Craftsmand GT5000 Spring Deck Cleaning

This did get me to thinking though about how a powder coated deck might perform with keeping the grass off the underside? I know it would hold up great and the couple of parts that I have ever had powder coated were nice and click when finished. I know it is a little costly but I may have to experiment and do a deck once.

I was wondering the same thing. When I finally have the space (hopefully this summer) and the courage to tear into my 'project', I think I'll investigate the power coating idea on the deck. See if a friend of mine can get me a discount through the place he works. :)

Mowed pretty good, but the grass isn't thick yet. I was trying to even it all up and cut down the wild onions.

the price goes up if you want a primer or a clear coat
I dont think the price is to bad you get an almost brand new product out of it that should last 15x longer than any form of wet paint

TSC carries a great product called "EZ Slide". A teflon based stuff we put on our grain/silage truck beds. Really helps stuff slide out & I put it on an Allis 416 deck. Really helped a lot from grass sticking. Before mounting, it'd be the perfect time to apply a coat of the stuff should you choose.
Dan, How do you think this stuff will work on rust pitted plow moldboards? The Plow Moldbroards I am finding all have some degree of pitting. They clean up well in your electrocution tank idea. Made mine 55 gallon and it works great and cleaned the pits out well so I think Something will stick.
