    Okay, I need a little help here. I've been asked by an equipment manufacturer to provide some testimonials for Fluid Film's use on hedge trimmers. I've been looking through my files and while I have testimonials for just about every application imaginable, I can't seem to find specific ones for hedge trimmers.

    Any help you could provide would really be appreciated.

    i use it on mine. i don't have to worry about hurting the plants, it offers excellent lubricity, and offers excellent protection from corrosion. i spray mine down each time i finish using them.

    I use whatever is around, motor oil, WD-40, silicon spray whatever. I don't think it really matters, as long it doesn't hurt plants
