    yeah, i am gonna rack a hella big bill if i dont watch out, screw cocaine , i need FLUID FILM! that was a joke by the way.

    i am gonna try it, and see what gives, you are spot on about cost vs usefulness. i will let everyone know, and it wont take long to know either i am sure. i hope this spring is wet vs our fall and winter. we are in the el nino dry spell again. could be bad if spring is dry too

    Not to cause trouble... But I've tried FF under my mower deck, in the blower tube when it's wet out and things are clogging up. I frankly saw no change at all. At least no change that I could measure. It wasn't like one day it was clog city, then I cleaned everything, applied FF that evening and the next day (same wet as hell conditions) and everything was perfect. That never happened at all. I was still unclogging, mower deck was dumping piles when I'd kill the blades... I tried it a number of times. Frankly I felt like I was just wasting the product. It's rather pricey. I also treat my slow blowers, snow and ice still sticks.

    It's just a film, an "oily" film that does wash off/wear off in a pretty short amount of time. If it DOES help the effects wear off quickly enough that I don't even notice if it actually helped or not.

    I like the product, as a lubricant for some things (get your minds out of the gutter, lol) but it's not perfect... I still prefer to use the proper lube type for the application.

    what would you put under the deck, if anything?

    i found several things to actually help, WD-40 actually wasnt too bad for about a day, day and a half.

    i tried a cheap graphite paint,(maybe my friend recommended slip plate brand would be better.) those tests where on wright standers and kubota ztrs. the toro deck is known to clog way less so i am already ahead!
