Thank you so much for sharing your process. Sounds very do-able and your results are impressive. How long does it take two coats of the Rustoleum JD Green paint to dry enough to sand out the mask lines?

It's easy enough. It just takes time. It does help pass the long New England winters.
I try to give the paint a week or so to dry before sanding.

How stiff of a wire wheel did you use to clean up the deck? Medium?

Re: John Deere Push Mowers

I looked at the wheel but there wasn't a rating on it. I'd say it's medium to course.

Re: John Deere Push Mowers

Got rescue #3 running today. No restoration on this one just yet. It needs to go to work at my son's place. Maybe I'll get it back in the fall and go through it. For now it got an oil change, carb clean, new gas line and a blade sharpening. Like the other it started on the first pull. Everything works as it should. I'm into this one for just the purchase price $33.00
For a bunch of non running mowers in unknown condition, I really lucked out. I'm more than happy.

Re: John Deere Push Mowers

Please pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference between the tricycler silverdeck and the non tricycler silverdeck? I just trashpicked a 14SZ that had no issues whatsoever. Also, can I order aftermarket wheels cheaper than genuine Deere wheels? Thanks in advance.

Re: John Deere Push Mowers

Can't beat a trash pick on a JD mower.
Aftermarket wheels are available for less money than Deere originals.
Not sure of model differences. I'm sure others will chime in to help.
