    Whats the deal with Fluid Film?

    I finally have a blade thats worth something, and I want to protect it. In the past, I've always just given the blade a healthy dose of WD40. Is there a big benifit to FF? Whats it cost? Is it worth it? What do you guys think about it?

    Thanks

    There is no comparison at all hardly between the 2 products.Wd-40 is a ''rust-buster'' type product while FF is a ''rust preventer'' type,besides ALSO being a great lubricant.The WD40 will wash off almost immediately while FF will stay on a very long time.I just got a fantastic deal for a case from McMasters for app.$5 a can with shipping.

    Good to know.
    Whats the process, just clean the blade, and spray everything?

    I usually apply fluid film 3 times a year- Start with a clean, dry blade. Before the start of every season I spray the whole blade(s) and headgear, get all the nooks and crannies and electrical connections. Usually during the January thaw I'll hit them again, and then a wash and coat before they go to sleep in the garage for the summer. I also coat both my trucks front to back underneath, special attention paid to usual rust prone areas; wheelwells, rockers, bottom of doors etc. The stuff works great.

    Even if Fluid Film wasnt good, no one on here would admit it, there a PlowSite sponsor :D!

    "another example of moron-at-keyboard syndrome. Learn to capitalize and punctuate your sentences! "

    LOL, he was calling you a moron! :laughing:

    Fluid Film does seem like it will stick around for a long time. Its alot thicker and heavier base than wd-40.

    But you could keep a few cans of WD with you and spray/wipe the blade down before and after every storm if you wanted to for under 2 bux a storm....

    WD would stick around for a while in spots besides the blade... NOTHING is going to stick to the blade during use.... ... Not even the powder coat.

    The other thing to think about is anything wet/sticky will attract dust and satl and grime.... Wax will not.

    Great service for sending a free sample... try it out.
