The number of visitors seems to be quite high, but very few are registering. Obviously, that will help, but I was hoping that my question might get some of them to register and answer it.I think its mainly because there's not a lot of people on the forums yet. People are just starting to register. You also have to remember people who have not registered yet can view threads but not post anything. As far as fluid film goes I personally have no previous experience with it. But I also haven't heard about this product before. How big of a difference do you see in the velocity of the snow when you started using Fluid Film?
I think you pretty well summed up what the fans of Fluid Film are saying.Winter is coming up pretty soon so I'll try this out and try to take some before and after videos. So essentially the Fluid Film is a lot like WD-40 but just coats the metals better and stays on longer?
It's a little different story for meBeen around a few snowblower forums. have never heard of anyone applying lubricant to the inside of the discharge chute, however, many owners apply several good coats of automotive wax to this area and say it helps.
So basically reapply prior to using the snow blower. Someone mentioned applying car wax on the chute. I might actually try that too. Since I wax my cars before winter starts and I park them on the driveway and the snow doesn't stick to the car. I can just brush the snow off very easily off my car and it still shines like it did. I wonder if it would have the same effects on the chute?anything, WD40, Pam, FluidFilm, ect. needs to be applied before every use as it does "wear" off from the snow blowing across it.
WD-40 was, in fact, originally developed to be a water-dispersing (thus the "WD") free-it-up lubricant. It was actually the 40th formula tried before they got one to work satisfactorily (thus the "40"!).. . .In my experience, the WD-40 lubricates for a very short time. I would not use it where I needed lasting lubrication. With all the solvents in it, it does seem to do some cleaning.
I don't have need of a water dispersant product, but that seems to be the true strong point and intended use of WD-40.
I'm a firm believer in the product and my new snowblower will be getting a good coating of Fluid Film.Hi,
New member here, but not new to snow.
For those that use Fluid Film in the discharge chute:
1. How often do you apply it?
2. Do you apply it immediately prior to use, a day/week/month ahead?
Ps. I did do a search.
