Deere says they use a powdered paint process, not sure if they say what size decks get that treatment. Powder still won't hold up underneath, it will hold up better up top, than paint would.So, are you saying that my X360 mower deck(48 inch) underneath, is powder coated?
And we are very glad that you don't buy one.than people like me could see why they cost so much...
Underneath as well as ontop. The whole deck, wheels, and frame are powder coated. Thanks to the EPA, most production processess have switched over to powder paint. Most factory car wheels are powder coated. Even the clear coat on car wheels uses a powder paint application.So, are you saying that my X360 mower deck(48 inch) underneath, is powder coated?
The dirt and debris picked up by your blades will eventually remove the powdercoat from the bottom of your deck. The deck will last a life time as long as you keep it maintained and stop rust before it can get out of hand.Brett, thanks for the clarification on the paint thing.
I don't have any sand in my yard/grass, and my paint is holding up like new.
The grass has made it very dirty/stained, but no paint is missing from the underside of my deck.

No way Jose. Powder paint is far superior to liquid paint for any commercial application hands down. The value is in the prep work. A sub strait that is properly sandblasted is the best foundation for powder paint. The trick to powder coating is not putting it on to thick and allowing for the right amount of cure time in the oven.From what I understand from reading various sources on the internet and talking to a few different paint shops, "powder coat" isn't much different than liquid spray on paint
