Chute lube

I have heard of people using WD40, Pam, Silicone, etc. But when my blower was delivered, they told me it was sprayed with a wax. What kind of wax would they have used? Is there a dry wax spray that can be used?

Thanks

I used Ski/ Snowboard wax in the past and it is formulated for snow at cold temps and is durable, lasts through the storm. Very very slippery. Get a small tin (like a shoe polish tin ) for short money and keep in on hand ! If your a skier, you probably already have some

The meltdown is under way ...

Thanks. Never skied before, do you put the wax on by hand and remove it like with car wax?

Yes , same as car wax. It's just that the wax is formulated for speed on snow and is more durable than car wax so it wears off slower.
