Cleaning Mower Deck, What's easy?
I own a Craftsman 42" cut yard tractor mower and was wondering if any of you have a special way to keep the mower deck clean after big cuts? For years now I've just raised the deck high to notch #6 and get on my hands and knees with a hand trowel and scrape away the thatch from under both blade sides, a real pain the older one gets. The water hose attachment seems like a joke to me if a pre-scraping isn't done first. Cleaning the deck is a must when using a grass catcher. Any ideas to share is greatly appreciated, Thanks!
