"Got Snow" Ariens Chute Spray

I recently bought some "Got Snow" for my Ariens blower. Yesterday I was changing oil and cleaning up my John Deere JS36 Lawnmower for the winter, and the can of Got Snow was sitting on my bench. I looked at it and wondered about using it under my mower, to keep it from clogging as it would for a snowblower . Because of my long work hours, I don't always get to cut lawn when it is optimal....many times it is wet or damp at best, and my mower does clog up fairly often in these circumstances. Does anyone have any idea's or recommendations regarding this idea?

Life is short, so if you don't have the strength to laugh at yourself,
call me.....I'll laugh at you!

Is Got Snow the same thing as Sno-Jet spray?

I believe that it is the same type of spray. I just thought that if it stopped snow from clogging, maybe it would be the same for damp grass clippings under the mower.

I used the Sno-Jet and it is a very slick coating. It seems to build up a bit. I donít see why it wouldnít help. I also bought DuPont snow and ice repellent to try out this season on the snowblower. Too bad they donít coat mower decks with non stick Teflon like used on a pan. That would really clean up easy!

Look forward to the comparison.

As far as teflon undercoating a mower deck. Issue is sand abraids the finish, and would quickly wear it off. I run some comercial mowers, and the paint is gone in many spots in one summer.

OVERPOWERED is usually Adequate

I've always sprayed whatever oily spray I happened to have handy inside the chute and auger housing and on the auger. I never noticed much difference compared to those times I've forgotten. I've rarely had chute clogs with or without the spray, and I've never measured the throw distance because all I can really tell is that the machine throws the snow into the woods and hits the trees from wherever I use it.

This year I'm trying Fluid Film, more for rust prevention than for any other reason. I haven't used the blower yet, so I can't really comment on how it works nor if it will make any difference at all.

I also sprayed the Fluid Film under the mower deck. The manufacturer says it works well there, but I have my doubts. I think it's going to collect the grass clippings and cause them to stick to the deck. But we'll see.

Thanks for the post Richard. I gave the under deck of my mower one coat, and when I pull it out in Spring, I think I will give it a couple more.It'll be awhile, but I'll try to remember to make mention on here. I can't see it hurting anything, even if all it does is rust protection. In theory, it should make a difference, but then, I've seen many problems that came from theory, and never worked.
