    Hello. I am new to this site and i am sure there is an answer to my question somewhere in this site, but cant find it. Question: Are there any products that are useful to apply on blade to prevent snow sticking buildup?

    Thanks

    So Grandview, I guess I can purchase a Boss V Plow with FF to apply on my existing plow. How clever............................

    Sure why not!

    Or just drop the plow down to bang the snow off. That wet stuff likes to stick on the blade. FF or if you have to wax it.

    ya thats the point i was trying to get somebody to say. i just deal with it so my arm gets a little tired from cranking the wheel harder i need the work out.
     
  18. my poly helps but FF got me thru the wet stuff

    It has been tough to keep snow from freezing to the steel cutter -- and that
    holds the snow to the bottom of the board

    btw: I put the FF on with a brush or sponge and it lasts all day

    If I have the plow in the shop overnight and is warm to thaw out,
    I take it out side for the plow to get cold before I start plowing --and that seems to help, too.

    I have not had any snow stick all winter-- except on the cutter (usually frozen dirt)

    I have my blade sprayed with fluid film. Yes, this helps to keep most of the snow off but every now and then I'll have to drop the blade once or twice to clean it off if it gets loaded up. Sometimes though, I'll just get out and kick it off. Thats works well after being in the truck for a while. Nice to get out and stretch.

    Furniture polish works pretty good too.
