    Is there anything I can put on the lexan to help roll the snow better? Ive noticed a little sticking just above the cutting edge near the middle os the blade and a little toward each end. Will Plexiglass cleaner I use on my Harley Windshield work? Or possibly car wax or Pam cooking spray?

    I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. It'll cost you more buying cooking spray and getting out and spraying it than it will just pushing snow. Try butcher's wax though. If it doesn't fog the lexan, it would probably wear better than the cooking spray.

    Snoway recommends cleaning with soap and water only. They make no recommendations on other coatings. I would check with GE, the makers of lexan on what can be used on their product with-out harmng it. They recommend no solvents, brakekleen, gum cutter, etc. be used. I've always used soap and water. you could call or email snoway tech, the link at the top will take you there.

    Give it a bath with soap and water, dry it, then apply a coat of carnuba paste wax. In a perfect world, wax before each storm.

    At the end of the season you can apply 3M plastic polish and finish with paste wax.
