The Most Hated Mower Job
Scraping off the half-decayed grass residue from the underside of the deck. I'll admit I have put my mowers away for the winter without doing this. So I did it today. Tip: get a pack of the small wood shims from the hardware store or home center. They are perfect for scraping this crud off without harming the deck, be it steel or aluminum. And you can split the shim to get narrower ones for detail work.
