    Everybody here swears by the Fluid Film

    There are alot of guys that I have met that have tried all sorts of things such a cooking sprays and such. They work but require repeated reapplication to remain functional...

    One thing I do is head to the loca do it yourself car wash. I put the sprayer on the wax application setting and spray my blade with that and don't rinse it....

    It works farely well and since I liove right down the road from one - it's not out of my way.

    I want to get some fluid film but the only guy that carries it in my AO is about 40 miles South of me. So I have to plan on getting some when I already find myself down there for another reason.......

    I have found that hockey stick wax works good for me. Have to reapply every few storms.

    Reviews on FF as a snow repellent are mixed. Best bet would be a heated blade.

    I would make the paint is in very good condition. Then I would wax the snot out of it. Follow up with some silicone spray before the storm.

    I have a contractor friend that uses release oil that is used on concreat forms. He brushes it on all his snow stuff, plows, pushers, buckets.

    You cna use anyhting thats designed to make a surface slick...FF, cooking spray, car wax...anything works. Problem is you have to reapply ALOT as the plow blade is subject to serious abrasion.

    Which is why car wax and Pam are used more than FF. Cheaper.

    They Teflon coat pistons, hmmmm. I wonder if they would do 2 blade halves.

    A Swain Tech Coated snow plow. Slick. (Haw...:laughing:)

    Perhaps should consider Mobil 1 or Equivalent. It helps at startup. Once the rag is soaked in it just store in plastic container and use as req'd I'll report back

    All 3 of my trucks have older meyer plows with a plastic "shield" cut & glued to front face of the blade. Made from the roll up snow sled poly material yellow in color. Sold in Northern tool & equipment catalog - $50. Works great, no waxing, always there. Makes plow face look like new. :nod:
