Handy Tool for Cleaning Mowers
by Charlie Nardozzi
One way of extending the life of your lawn mower deck is to clean out the dead grass that accumulates underneath after each mowing. Using a screwdriver or putty knife to clean out the grass can work, but its difficult to get into all the nooks and crannies. Now a new tool makes this job a little easier.
The Mower Grassbuster was specifically designed to remove caked-on grass from under the deck. The 2-inch-wide by 5-inch-long stainless steel blade is tapered and flexible. The tool conforms to the underside of a mower and the blade corners are curved to prevent scratching the metal.
