    Being from Canada, the only place I found FF was at a local Canadian Tire Store, I have wanted to try the product for some time but was unable to find it..... Since I found it I thought I would buy 3 can at $15.00 per can so I could coat my plow, as I have huge issues with the snow sticking to the plow..

    More is better right, so I used all three can on one plow. Guess what SNOW STILL STICKS.

    Did I do something wrong ??? or did I just waist my time and money.

    I never tried it on the blade; figured just the abrasive action of snow would take pretty much everything off of anything. But I've found nothing better at undercoating the truck, winter proofing my mini-excavator, etc. The stuff is phenomenal!

    Last year I sprayed the little sample can onto my BOSS 8 2 V. I plowed 248 driveways and never had a problem with the snow sticking. November - March, one spraying of FF. I would say it does work.

    I just use it for rust proofing and it works really well. Never saw a purpose to spraying it on my moulboard all the time.

    couple things, what is the condition of your plow? is it rusty or super smooth? F.F. is not intended to keep snow off the blade, it just so happens that it can have that effect. Its best used as a rust inhibitor and lube.

    the reason I don't use it to lube the blade (I just wax it in the fall) is because it collects dirt and would make it look bad. but i use it everywhere else and it really lasts a long time.

    I knew you guys would come to my rescue! :drinkup:

    I generally like to stay out of these threads until some more feedback piles in. Grn Mtn has it right. Fluid Film was not formulated to keep snow from sticking to the plow. Its #1 function is to stop corrosion, and it does that better than any competitive product. Because of the nature of the product, however, it remains very slick and wet. That combination has proven effective in this industry to help keep snow from sticking to blades, in snow blower chutes, to headlights, as well as keep locks from freezing.

    In order to be fair on this subject, I am going to start a poll. We are not afraid of negative publicity. We always want the truth to be told about our products. Please be honest when speaking about Fluid Film's effectiveness in this area. I'll post it in the Fluid Film forum.
