    anyone found any product that will neutralize the effects of salt on equipment. I've looked at several products but have not tried any yet.

    FLUID FILM. Coat everything before you start for the season, and you should be good all season.

    See, now it's that magic word "again" that creates the problem. :D

    We've got a big shipment of brush cans heading out to John Deere tomorrow. It's in their system and will be on their shelves soon. :drinkup:

    See DANO I have learned a thing or two. 1) how to protect my equipment. 2) how to suck up and try to score some free Fluid Film stuff, lol.

    I'll be honest spray your stuff down with good ol household vinegar, hose down your equipment, and it will remove all the salt and most of the rust that was starting to form. Then hit it with fluid film to protect it from there.

    Fluid Film.................sprayed on all trucks, spreaders, plows etc. It works great. And after washing the equipment 5 times so far this season, still repells and beads.

    I use this stuff at work all the time. Chlor-rid works great on un-painted parts. For vehicles and equipment use their Chlor-wash. It is like a car wash soap, except it neutralizes and removes the salt deposits as well.

    Does anyone know if you need to cut fluid film with something to put it through a hand sprayer ?

    If so what is compatible ?

    I purchased a gallon and intended to put it on with a brush , would work on my plows but after looking under my truck I would like to pressure wash and then spray with fluid film .

    MDOT is spraying liquid and salting all state roads now , undercarriage is taking a real beating will fluid film aid in stopping corrosiion that has started .... surface level ?

    Buy a duplicolor bedliner spray gun, it works very well for spraying out of the gallon cans. Can be had at a local parts store i would think.

    Used motor oil. Just spray away, especially great for undercarriages. Might be problematic for the front of plows though.
