CRC vs WD 40

Rate this topic

WD 40, for the fiftieth time, is NOT a lubricant. W stands for water, and D stands for displacement. The 40 is because it was the inventors 40th attempt.

It's made to chase water from an area, and then it dries up.

CRC makes many different products. I would not doubt that they make one that would do what you want.

All we use in my shop is "Deep Creep" made by Seafoam.  Have been using it for at least 30 years, give it a try...........................

You spray down your entire snowblower?  Why don't you wax it?

no.....just both sides of the auger at the housing, driveshaft  etc.

I use 100% silicone not oil based silicone sprays.  But what also helps is to let the blower cool down to outside temp for several minutes before blowing snow. My blower comes from a heated garage and if I start blowing before allowing it to adjust to outside temp snow melts then freezes then it's a PITA to clean off when done.

well,  CRC got back to me .....

 

Thank you for choosing CRC Products. For the chute and blades we would recommend a spray silicone. This will help prevent snow and ice buildup. For the All of the other moving parts that do not have grease fittings, you can use Powerlube or 3-36.
