had to teach my dealer what to use ff for

i have been buying the spray cans of ff for several years now. This year i i am going to use a gallon with a brush to see how well it works. So i had my dealer order a gallon. He goes what do you use that stuff for any. i reply mower decks, plows , blowers, hedge trimmer, wax, sticky hinges, trailer gates plus about 2 million other things. I just couldnt believe they didnt know any of this. maybe i wouldnt be the only one buying the stuff there if they informed people about its uses.

I wish i had a camera with yesterday. i sprayed my hd 60'' blower on my 1445 with it. 2 coats. we had upper 30s for temps so the snow was sticky as heck, it kept most of it from sticking and plugging. My personal drive is a 1/2 mile long and every windy day we get over 10mph the drive fills in.

Nice! I wish you had a camera too, lol. Yes, we do need to put something together that would better inform dealers as to the wonders of the product. The problem is that since we are the manufacturer, we don't have much interaction at that level.

You could always tell them to contact us if they'd like flyers or other marketing materials.

if we get some warmer days i will have to spray half with ff and show the difference.
last week i ran out of ff and plugged the blower several times in wet stuff. when its cold it never bothers.

the problem for dealers is the marketing materials do not really tell everything it does. I still like the idea of a snake oil ad making light of the fact that people use it for everything. Advertising your products sucks till the guy tries it... then it wants it by the case.

any sprayer that you can use latex paint in will work prviding the tip size is correct. the other good option is an automotive undercoating gun
