    Getting back into the "snow" business after about 6 yrs. off.

    Economy and lack of work force this for our company.

    We are going to be plowing and "spraying" Mag this winter.

    I hear horror stories about Mag eating up everything.

    What can I do to prevent the inevitable?

    I need something to protect my equipment as I understand Mag will not wash off.

    I've read the FF threads,sounds interesting.

    I've also found a product called Mag - bloc,that is supposed to remove Mag from my equipment.I understand that a pressure washer will not do.

    Also supposed to protect from the corrosion.

    Anybody heard of this product ?

    Any recommendations on others?

    I really want to do everything to protect and prevent.

    Thanks !! BTW 1st post so :drinkup: on me.:waving:

    We use a product from Rhomar Industries that neutralizes the salt residue at the end of the season on our salt spreaders, trucks & plows. Seems to work very well on the chains. Our v-boxes are stainless. We also use a encapsulent product from them that we spray our chains down.

    You only use it at the end of the season?

    Not after every use?
