    I've never figured out how to keep the grass from sticking so much to the inside of my Walker GHS boxes. Does anyone have any ACTUAL experience with using Fluid Film for that?

    Yes. I use it in the hopper and it works great. Gotta reapply a little more than not. But it definitely does help. I even use it on the small bagger for my walkbehind and the grass slips out easier and keeps the rust under control too.

    Thanks, DLAWNS. I'm glad someone replied that actually used it. I haven't used Fluid Film at all, yet. I am planning to get some for this season. I wasn't sure how it would work on the poly plastic of the Walker hopper.
    Spray it on or brush it for this use?

    Just so you know, when I respond to threads like these, I am using words given me by actual users. I don't want to send anybody erroneous information.

    I usually use the spray cans or more often than not the undercoating gun. I'm sure the brush would work just as well.

    Now Bill, You know that if you bought a real catcher (Accelerator :cough: Accelerator :cough: lol) you wouldn't have to worry about rust ever.

    I know I don't need to keep it from rusting, but I do spray mine with a coat of FF. It makes it a heck of a lot easier to clean out, I can literally peel the grass off of the inside.

    Haha yeah. I think mine's a grass gobbler, that accelerator catcher is serious though.

    to say you haven't used fluid film is like saying you've never breathed! fluid film is every bit as important to survival as oxygen, food and, water:cool2:

    Looking at this forum, FF sure has its devotees.
    Strangely, I know of no landscaper in my area that uses it although the local John Deere implement dealer stocks it -- must be the farmers that use it.
