    Do you guys spray/coat your plow equipment (and other parts of your ATV) with Fluid Film or similar? If so, how often? I heard someone else recommend it here or another forum.

    I spray down the blade and moving parts with Fluid Film. The blade doesn't stay coated for long but it last on everything else. I usually spray it after I wash the truck, I try to do that after every storm. Haven't really had a chance to do that this year.

    We use spray silicone $1.59 per can (cheap), maybe 3 times per season and it stays slippery.:D:D:D

    I spray all moving parts on the plow with FF twice a season on the first day of plowing and halfway through the season

    usualy it takes about a can a little less than one every time I spray it

    My dad use to coat the old metal snow shovel with wax. It actually made it kinda hard to throw the snow, as soon as you go to toss it, is slides off before you can get any momentum up to throw it. LOL It never stuck to the shovel though! :)
