Chute lubricant?

Recommended Posts

What's the best chute lubricant to use on a SS blower? We are getting wet snow on warm ground and there is an inch or two of slush that is clogging my chute. Silicon spray on the auger and chute? What are you using to throw the wet stuff?

I use silicon spray on the auger and chute here in SE PA where we get a lot of wet snow.

It definitely helps, but if you bog down, you'll plug. Keep the RPM's up and you should be OK.

I use car wax or mo-deck/sno-jet lube spray. Also really key to have the paint smooth and fresh. Even if you can't repaint it in time, a wet sanding followed by heavy waxing makes a ton of difference.

Heat up some wax and slather it in the chute. I use old fashioned Carnauba wax on the leading edges and in the throat of my blower. It lasts all season. In the spring, I'll wax it up again when I do the maintenance before I put it away.

I have been using silicone spray but when you have that wet heavy slush it just does not stay on very long and you have to keep applying it.

Wax is likely to stay on longer.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
