Lots of people, myself included just use cheap cooking spray like generic Pam.
Been using it for years. Spray each time before use. I even spray it on my shovel.

Best part about using Pam for your snow blower is you can use the left over cans for your grill's grate in the summer .

I get wd-40 in bulk cans at Costco. Spray before use every time.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

You can buy a cheap Pam-alternate at W*mart, etc. I bought some Fluid Film. Have not tried it yet, but people seem to think it's pretty good stuff.

I can testify to fluid films effectiveness for snow blowers.

I use it on my lawn tractors snow blower and the Toro snow pups.

WD-40 works very well also
Mow Deck, is another but bulk WD-40 works well if you have no access to fluid film
you should also google clarences impeller kits for the snow blower impellers as
the modification works wonders on old and new snow blowers too.

I use cheap silicone tire shine products. It seems to last longer than WD40 because it's thicker.

The tire shine products would last much longer. That stuff is slick and slimy. I also thought about never wet from rustoleum. I am going to try the tire shine first and then might try the neverwet.

Generic brand cooking spray is probably way cheaper and you're going to have to spray each time anyway. But, whatever you choose is better than no spray at all.

The best is McLube Sailkote dry silicone lube. Once or twice a season will do it, so a can should last two seasons unless you find other uses. I find it's also great for zippers on coats and luggage and canvas covers, and other things you want to lube without leaving any oily residue (I've yet to have it stain any fabric).

BTW that's the secret weapon for sliding toys (skis, sleds, etc.). When my kids were young they'd go faster and farther than their friends. I used to bring a can to the hill because all the other kids would ask me to spray their sleds.
