I wish Home Depot would carry this in store. It's hard to sell a product when it's buried behind mower accessories on a shelf. That being said when I put this on it worked great. Follow the instruction on the can. If you are using this on a old mower you will have to get the entire deck free of grass clippings. My mower was new out of the box. I put three coats on the deck letting it dry before I applied each time. I've had me mower for three years and the deck is spotless. Yes you will have to reapply every year but after you clean a deck that's not treated with this stuff you'll wish you had this spray. I've seen grass buildup so bad that a metal scrapper wouldn't take it off. Buy this and you'll thank yourself later or you can pass and curse yourself later.
Snow finally came to WNY on Friday! Our snow thrower was treated with Armoteck during late fall and one snow shovel was also treated. The snow thrower is top rated by a leading consumer magazine and for the most part worked very well during the 2015 Snovember storm. The thrower had been treated with WD 40 Silicon spray but the spray had to be reapplied every other event. Armortek states that this will give long lasting non stick application to mower decks as well as snow throwers. Based upon this, decided to give it a try!
The recent snow fall was water laden and under any condition, would be difficult to remove. However, our snow thrower did do this previously with some effort. Initially, used the snow shovel to clear minor snow accumulation in front of the garage door. What was noticed was that that the snow did not slide off but stuck to the shovel. Caught me by surprise and wound up banging the shovel againt the brick to spring the snow loose.
Upon using the snow thrower which has a width of 33", the snow stuck to everything and readily plugged up the thrower chute and auger. And this occurred after about 10 ft of driveway one pass cleaning of about 6" of snow. Normally, the thrower would buzz right through with minor if any snow clogs even with the heavier snow. Because the snow stuck to everything where the spray was attached, this caused sub snow throwing performance. What would normally take about 15 minutes to clear the driveway took at least 45 minutes with the driveway having snow tracks left behind! The snow only stuck to the areas where the Armortek was present and not on the small areas that did not have the spray.
Had to resort using the WD 40 with Silicon spray to continue on. This was my first time with Armortek material and it was not good! As for mower deck application, my John Deere came equipped with a water clean out system that keeps the deck free and clear as long as the deck is washed after each mowing.
Based upon the experience with the snow thrower application, cannot recommend product!
Tried it on an ATV snow plow, snow stayed on the blade as though nothing was applied. Didn't notice any difference when using this for snow plowing. Windshield anti-freeze spray works better than this for 1/3 the cost.
Sprayed under carriage of lawn mower twice. Even let it set 2 days prior to first use. Still same result, stuck grass clippings. Only thing I can say positive was that it was easier to get the grass removed.
I've alway had trouble with grass buildup under my mower. When I bought my Honda mower last year I stumbled across this spray. I put 2 coats under the mower let it dry. Las fall when I drained the oil in the mower I was blown away by how clean it was underneath. Home Depot does not stok this in store for se strange reason but this does work. In fact I used it on my snow blower and ice did not build up. I bought a second can this year to put another coat on. I would rather do this every year than spend 2 hours scraping off hard grass build up any day. I believe that I put 3 coats on las year and I let it dry before using.
I used this on my snow blower to hopefully lessen clogs when blowing wet snow. The spray was easy to apply. It is glossy black when first applied and then turns to a flat or matt black finish when dry. Do this only in a well ventilated location away from any open flames as the vapors from the spray are quite potent. As can be seen in the video I coated all portions of my snow blower chute and auger. I did this in 30 degree weather, so the non-stick spray does come out of the can and dry in cold weather. I cannot comment yet on whether it works as it has not snowed yet. Cover areas that you do not want the spray to get on as it is hard to get off.
