I hate laying on my back, too. So here's what I do:

Park the tractor in the middle of the lawn.
Dig a REALLY big hole under the mower deck.
Stand up under the mower with a hose and scraper to remove debris.
In the mean time, the hole has filled up with water.
This is really handy, because I then can swim out of the hole.
Wait for the water to evaporate.
Fill in hole.
Put tractor back in garage.
Plant new grass seed.
:trink40:.
Repeat frequently, as per Wheel Horse instruction on the dash board.

Nice machine elevator dean.

This time of year I'm still using standing puddles to clean the deck ...but it has to be done as soon as your done. Once the grass dries it's too late.

When it dries up I just take the deck off and scrape once you do that 5x or so it becomes a whole lot easier...especially if your laying on some comfortable cardboard.

Those are nice ramps you found there Toolin.

Because we mow so much I cut a little bit every day so it doesn't become a pita project... even soaking wet grass.


Every time I finish I flush it out with puddle water. Here a pic of my deck after cutting and flushing probably a dozen time or more. It was more or less perfectly clean except for the grass stuck to the grease that gets thrown out from the bearings. And that grass doesn't effect the good discharge needed if your gonna cut wet grass.

If you gonna try puddle cleaning for the 1st time all you want to do is shave off a 1/2 inch or less of water at full throttle.

Oh... I didn't find them. Just happened across that thread and thought Dean's method might help those other guys out too, or at least make them envious!
