Barrette's Small Engines Inc. - FAQ's

Why is the paint underneath the mower deck wearing away?
CAUTION: Before performing maintenance on any unit, always disconnect and ground the spark plug wire.

Clippings and other debris can buildup on the underside of a deck. After this debris is dried, it has been mistaken for paint chips as it will flake off. Make sure clear these clippings from time to time as this can affect operation.

The abrasion caused by soil, sand, grass clippings and other debris circulating at very high speeds underneath a cutting deck can wear any finish. This abrasive environment underneath a cutting deck is considered normal and should not cause any operational issues.

In some cases where excessive fertilizer or high volumes of salt and moisture are present in the air, rust may begin to form on this surface.

If rust appears to be forming, clean the area and use a wire brush or sandpaper to remove the rust and re-finish. For further assistance with this procedure, please contact us by e-mail, so that we can guide you with the proper procedures.
