    A few questions for you all:

    Would you consider having your snow removal equipment including

    1. salt spreader- fiberglass or metal.
    2. snow plow of any size
    3. snow blower-whether self propelled or tractor mounted

    lined with a slippery liner material to reduce friction and build ups of material?

    About snow blowers
    would you consider buying one if
    a self contained snowblower that
    could be mounted on:

    a. compact utility tractor
    b. utility tractor
    c. the front end loader of your compact utility tractor or utility tractor
    d. pick up truck plow mount
    e. skid steer loader

    connected in pairs to create a six foot blower or an eight foot blower system.

    And had all 5 of the mounting systems installed as standard equipment
    with thier own storage on the snow blower itself to avoid losing them for
    all five types of vehicles.

    Has an improved drive system with more available power for snow casting
    and a pneumatic caster wheel set up to aid in steering and added traction
    within the blower frame for single speed snow throwing.

    And could be used as self propelled blower using a proven track drive system
    that can be used to mow properties with the same track drive unit at high speeds
    with towed or mounted mowers using a mower deck or flail mowers.

    thanks much

    Where are you going with this Leon?

    We've never had any real issues making us look for something to prevent sticking.

    Other than snow in unheated boxes.

    I'll grab my popcorn early on this one. :laughing::popcorn:

    Would it also prevent the paint from wearing or rusting?
    Inside of my salt spreader....yes, Paid over $6,000 for it!

    I know it's not much but I took a candle and small torch. lightly heated the candle and smeared it all over the plow blade. The snow rolled off faster then I could imagine. I tried it on a shovel and I could barely pic up the shovel without the snow falling back off!
