How to keep grass from sticking to a lawn mower deck


“I’ve got a great one for you to figure out. Without removing our mower decks from our tractors every other week to clean them out, what can we use (REALLY) that will work to keep the grass from packing underneath it all the time. I know I,m not the only one looking for an answer to this, what seems like unsolvable problem. Put on your thinking caps and give this a go.”

So Kip wants to know what he can do about all that grass sticking to the bottom of his deck.

Trust me when I tell you that he is not alone.

I’ve written an article entitled How to clean a lawn mower deck. 

In that article we talk about why no one likes a crusty lawn mower deck and how to clean them.

But, it occurs to me that we have the greatest source of information available to us at the click of a button… you.

The question has been posed…What do you do to keep all that grass from sticking to the underside of your mower deck?

As Kip so elegantly put it, “Put on your thinking caps and give this a go.”

Here are some solutions we have tried.

  • Pam.  (Yeah, the stuff that is probably sitting in your pantry.)
  • Mo-Deck no stick
  • Gunk no stick.

From our tests PAM is the most budget friendly solution to grass sticking to a lawn mower deck.
