    Well, I finally stopped down to my local Deere dealer and picked up 2 cans of this stuff. First time I used it was a trial can last fall and have been on a hunt for the full size for the longest of time. Of course, who would have thought that the nearest dealer was 10 min. away from me (thank you FF dealer search!!). So far I did my trailer hitch on my truck, and the underside of my mower deck (w/ pic). I must say, the best stuff EVER!!

    Ok, so what exactly does Fluid Film do, and what can I use it on?

    How can I put it:

    "Fluid Film products offer powerful corrosion protection for all metals and superior lubrication for all moving parts. They are long lasting, thixotropic liquids and gels that have been used for over 55 years in the highly corrosive marine environment of ships and offshore drilling rigs. More recently they have been introduced and successfully utilized in the lawn & garden, aviation and automobile industries, as well as providing an eco friendly solution for home maintenance. Facilities where they are used include government, commercial fishing, gas companies, farming, salt, power, and industrial plants.

    Fluid Film is formulated from specially processed wool-wax, highly refined petroleum oils and selected agents to provide corrosion control, penetration, metal wetting and water displacement. These long lasting products contain no solvents, will not dry out and will penetrate to the base of all metals, providing corrosion protection from both natural and industrial atmospheres. Heavily corroded and/or frozen parts such as nuts, bolts, shafts, etc. that would normally be damaged during maintenance, can be salvaged by applying Fluid Film."

    If it is new and it moves and does not contain natural rubber Fluid Film will make it work better, longer and quieter.

    We no longer stock chain lube, LPS3, WD40 or cutting oil, FF as replaced them all

    It won't hurt the paint and stops the rust but the snow doesn't stick as well anymore:realmad::angry::rolleyes:

    I agree with what has been said. When I had my old car there was some very minor surface rust on the lower front edge of my driver door. I sprayed that spot and went through all of last winter without any more problems. I have to keep looking for the brush applicator can of it though. The JD dealer didn't have any :(

    I lubed the new weight distributing hitch bars for my camper this summer and it hasn't even worn the paint off yet where the spring bars slip into the hitch head. Unbelievable stuff!

    Fluid Film is also an excellent vehicle undercoating that will protect from road salts and moisture.
