    I just got the plow out of storage and it is making an awful screeching sound when angling from left to right. What should I use to grease up the angle cylinders?

    Spray some Fluid Film on them. And it may take a few in and outs but the noise should go away.

    Spray the whole plow with FF. Will protect the plow and prevent rust.

    i use red grease.
    Not sure if its the best thing but it works for me.
    comes in a tube at most autoparts stores and fairly cheap.

    Red grease extreme pressure and heat ...Holds up longer...

    I use the red grease but in a spray can.Really good stuff,you can even stick the small tube in the lube holes of your V plow.Much better than the white lube in a can.

    We put grease on all our cylinders before storage, it works better then FF and we have plows that are over 20 years old with original seals.
