    I spray the inside of mine with Fluid Film. cuts back on the clogs, as well as prevents rust. My snowblower is 12 years old, and still looks like it did the day I bought it.

    x2 with the fluid film. If you are going to clog......most likely nothing is going to stop it. I just like how fluid film protects from rust.

    clear silicone, ie garys it, castle silicone spray...i spray the entire machine to help keep it ice free. reapplication depends on how much you are using it. if coated properly it will throw slush

    fluid film will do the trick and protect the blower at the same time

    For the FF boys on here, do you just spray directly out of the can or do you spray and then rub in a la a car wax.

    There is a spray called Snow - Jet I think, its made by the same people who make Mow - Deck. I have not got to use it yet but have ordered it and waiting for it. You should be able to google Mow - Deck and find it on their site.

    I take a propane torch and a large candle and heat up the wax and rub it on as much of the chute area as possible. Snow doesn't stick at all and the wax lasts most of the winter. I do my plow and shovels the same way. It's WAY cheaper then FF.

    The product may be cheaper, but once you factor in your labor, the propane, and so on, I would bet it's a wash. Not to mention I haven't seen a candle company that is a sponsor here.

    We bolted on the Clarence 0-clearance kit this year. Will see if it helps with clogs. /smllengns.tripod.com

    Generally I WD-40 my blower on the inside and the chute. Thinking about Fluid Film though, I've used it before and was happy with it, just never got around to actually ordering some.
