pressure washer on lawnmower


Is it generally ok to use a pressure washer in light spray mode to clean the bottom of my lawnmower? Alot of grass, mulch, dirt, etc.....is caked on there and it's tough to get off.

Are you talking about the under-side of your deck? If so, the answer is absolutely YES. Just be aware of the fact that, when you tip it up on its side, you're probably going to be running gas and/or oil out onto the ground.

Just make sure you tip it w/ the air cleaner up not down or oil will saturate air filter and carb!

Worked out wonderfully. How often should I do this? Looks great! Mad I didn't do it more this past summer.

Now that it's clean, spray the underside of the deck with some non-stick cooking spray. Should clean up with a garden hose next time.
