Armorall & Lawn Tractors Do NOT mix!!!

I just did a quick test drive on a customer's lawn tractor. I had to do little sidehilling. This customer had Armoralled the seat, the tires (including the tread). The tires slid sideways , had no traction at all, and I wound up sliding off the seat while side hilling. Grass was dry. I do know for sure that the seat switch works.

Had a buddy that did that on a M/C seat...it was pretty funny when he did a fast takeoff the first time....slid right off the back and went down in a heap with the bike on top.

Doesn't armorall along with it's competitors have some fine print about not using it on seats, pedals, steering wheels and tire tread?

Indy, will we get to see you on one of those funny video shows

I made that mistake on a riding mower and a wave runner, the results were not pretty in either case, yes it was applied to both at the same time or I would have learned. Have a good one. Geo

Thanks for the heads up on this. Might save someone form having an "exciting" ride.

my brother did that to the seat of his CBX back in 79 and found out that a 100plus hp bike and a slippery seat do not go together LOL

murphy was an optimist
