    My dealer recommended I spray the metal parts of my plow with fogging oil to protect them while in storage over the summer. Does anyone else do this? Should I spray the plow during the winter also?

    I use cooking spray on the moldboard, spray anything that moves with white grease, plus white grease on cylinders when off truck, I'll repaint come spring with oil base paint.

    I use a fogging / rust protective coating from Graingers. Only about $4 a can, CRC product I think. Also use it to protect bare metal parts for say an engine project. It is sticky and makes a nice protective coating. Probably overkill for the plow parts, but I had it for other reasons.

    1 gallon of diesel mixed with 1 Quart of motor oil in an old windex bottle works great and is cheap.

    We use a product called Fluid Film.It is a wax based product instead of petroleum based,and a lot easier on the ground\environment.
