Deck and Fence refinishing

Is your wood deck weatherd and grey and you'd like to restore it with minimum effort and expense. Of course you can go to your local home improvement center and spend $$ for cleaning solutions which require a lot of elbow grease to use properly or you can follow this simple, yet very effective procedure.

  • Purchase a few gallons of regular fousehold bleach
  • Useing a soft bristle push broom brush bleach over deck surface. Almost immediately you'll see the weathering disappear.
  • When done hose off surface with garden hose and allow wood to dry completely.
  • Apply your new deck stain and behold a deck that looks almost new.
NOTE: You can use a deck sprayer in place of the broom...just be sure to wear old clothing as the bleach will ruin the clothing.

I have a Cub Cadet RZT with a 50 Inch mower deck. When I engage the PTO the blades barely spin. If I disconnect the mower deck and engage the PTO the Clutch is spinning at high speed. When they are connected the clutch appears to spin at low speed. The blades themselves are spinning at a much lower speed than necessary to cut grass. Any ideas?

Of course.
Someone will need to completely dismantle the mower deck and find the problem.
That problem should be a binding shaft due to lack of lubrication or due to being full of foreign matter ( grass clippings, sticks, etc.).
These decks need a minimum of yearly maintenance, and the more they are used, the more often they will need attention.
That means daily use could mean weekly servicing.
God bless your efforts.
