    New guy. I did a search and cant find what I was looking for, so...

    I'm in the process of installing my new poly plow. Ive owned a steel blade in the past, and put a coat of wax on it with my pre season check out.

    Can you wax the poly plows? Is there any reason not to? Any reason to wax or add another type of coating. I know the poly keeps the snow off, but can you make it better, last longer by waxing (or coating with ?)

    im a steel blade guy myself but i would think anything you can do to make the surface slick cant hurt

    go ahead and wax away. It probably wouldnt hurt to put a coat on before you put it away in the spring, if you leave it outside to help with color fade. I dont know of anybody that makes anything special to use.

    I'm assuming its Polyethylene and not lexan. Either way, one of the “amorall type” plastic UV protectants is what I’d use……….
