    Hey, I am looking at a 95 f350 with a flatbed, spreader, and western plow. plow is rusty so I would paint. Just finished rebuilding a couple 250r fourwheelers and I got the frames powdercoated pretty reasonably, so I wondered if anyone had ever tried it on a plow?? thanks in advance.

    That would be a good idea i think Chris. I am buying a new plow this year so i might wait a year to do that, but i think that rhino lining or speedliner would be great for a plow. I had my bed of my truck sprayed with speedliner they said speedliner is suppose to be better than rhino, but i dont know. That defin, is a good idea i am thinking of that myself for next year.

    If I am not mistaken, most of the plow manufactures do POWDER COAT their plows??? I could be very wrong, but I know BLIZZARD PLOWS are powder coated. Just my thought.

    I hope I was of help.

    I should have mentioned that I was also wondering about rhino lining one, anyone tried it yet?? I got the inside of the deck of one of my mowers done and it's held up great and doesn't let grass build up in there.

    You will lose a lot of the rolling action with powder coating. You want a smooth surface to prevent snow from sticking. I have found it best to blast them and then just use regular primer and paint. Holds up for a couple of years and easier touchup.

    I would think that coating a blade with rhinolining would add too much weight to the blade. This could be especially detrimental when pushing heavy wet snow that tends to stick to the blade.

    The RhinoLining and Line-X and such products, I agree that they will be heavy... they are also textured so THAT is where you will lose the rolling effect and have snow sticking. Powder coating, if done properly, is smooth just like paint.

    The texturing portion can be eliminated by changing the spray pattern. I used to work in a shop that sprayed Line X and it is a 2 step process. The fiest step is a smooth thick coat. The second step is applied just before the first coat tacks up and that is the textured portion.

    it is actually pretty cost effective, around $350 for the blade and sector/a-frame
