    i guess if you just use it on stuff your storing i could see it working good, but if your spraying it on stuff your using all day its not gonna last. such as the plow, the undercarrage of the trucks ect, i just see it all washing off, or getting gunked up with sand and coming off.

    IMO, its a waste to spray the underside of your truck...thats what undercoating, por15, etc, etc is for. As for any moving parts/hinges, elec. connections, and many other things I feel it's the best thing there is. BTW, I paint my plows with it at the beginning of the season and just have to spot touch them between washings through the winter, works good for me.

    When you spray Fluid Film on a surface and it rains, much of the product does indeed wash away. However, since the product embeds into the pores of the metal, enough remains to protect for significant periods of time. Just because you can't feel it doesn't mean it isn't still protecting. If there is a shine to the surface, Fluid Film is still doing its job.

    Both John Deere and Caterpillar use Fluid Film on their heavy equipment before shipment. It sits out in full exposure to salt air, salt water, and rain, and the product continues to work for them.

    i love the stuff but i am a sucker for stuff like this
    but it actually works pretty well for me
    where im at snow comes when it wants or maybe not at all and ff stays on my meyer even after use. If you want something to stay forever powder coat it and then you will be happy. I say the product does what it says and keeps my spreader and plow rust free and clean. I use it on my mowers in the winter and it kept them crisp. I personally wish it was less oily and washed off as long as it is doing its job but some people need to see a product to think it is working. If you have some spray on something that is getting rusty and give it a test if u dont like send it to me and I am sure there r a hundred other products out there that promise the same results I have too little time to find them so im sticking with it
