    X2 on FF and keeping them off the ground. All the salt residue will eat your cutting edges in no time!

    Any Plowsite member that hasn't tried FLUID FILM and lives in the US can PM me for a free sample can. Not only does it stop corrosion caused by salts and fertilizers, but it also stops atmospheric corrosion, works excellent as a vehicle undercoating, and is an excellent lubricant in sub-zero temperatures, keeping locks from freezing and snow and ice from sticking to metals and plastic.
