Product test

Postby Dahlin » Sun Jan 01, 2012 11:55 am

I did a product test on my snow plow blade. I bought a product called "Dupont" teflon snow and ice repellant from our local farm store. I sprayed it on my blade, it is very dry and slippery feeling on the blade. I pushed snow this morning and the snow slid off easily-no sticking. It is a reasonably priced product and I feel it worked very well.

I picked up 2 cans at Lowe's tonight. I took one to my Dad for him to use on his snow blowers and one for me to try on my snow blade. I'll report how it works once I get a chance to use it. That will probably be tomorrow evening.

Another product that I was considering using is Slip Plate (see below) to coat my snow blade with. It goes on like a paint but is a dry film lubricant that, I would guess, you could get a couple of years out of a single application on the snow blade. NAPA carries it and it runs about $18.00 for a quart.

Chassis paint high gloss POR15 works great too. once cured nothing much will stick to it. good for underside of mower decks also. little pricy.

I finally got a chance to use the DuPont Teflon snow and ice repellent on Friday. We received about 10" of fresh snow Thursday night and Friday during the day. I got home from work on Friday and spent an hour or so pushing snow. I had previously liberally sprayed the blade a day or two earlier with the DuPont product. My hope was that with the blade angled and the snow and ice repellent on the blade, the windrows that usually come off of the blade on the "wrong side" would stop. However, I couldn't tell any difference at all.

Maybe it will stop the snow from sticking on a shovel but I don't operate a shovel any more than I have to. I gave a can to my Dad and he sprayed it on the chute of his snowblowers and since using it has not had a chute plug up, even with some wet heavy snow. Anyhow, my experience is that it is not worth $6 to spray on the snow blade, but seems to work well on a snowblower chute.
