    Has anybody tried applying a "plastic" coat to a clean painted blade ? Like what is used on wheels. It can be used on painted surfaces, and might keep the paint lasting longer without getting scratched.

    I apply some silicone based stuff that I get at an ATV shop. It's good for about 2 or 3 storms and then I apply it again.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a 'permanent" coating. You would use a hardener with it.

    i think he means something that is painted or sprayed on. like a teflon surface. i have tried waxing my plow, and it did seem to help but i am not sure how much. sure felt stupid putting 3 layers of way on my plow though. :)

    Try painting it with the stuff farmers use for there gravity wagons etc. Its called slip-coat. The stuff works great and stays on for a couple seasons.
    The draw back is it only comes in an ugly grey color. If you decide to use it put 2-3 coats on, it looks and acts like teflon.
