If you missed it in early fall, take advantage of it now. Continue reading

Tech Tip: Protect Your Snow Equipment with Fluid Film

Rusty Skid Steer Loader Foot Pedals

Don’t let winter do this to your machine.

We use Fluid Film on our rental equipment. Sometimes our machines go out for a full season and we’ll get a machine back that doesn’t look so good. That’s why we use rust protection, which we apply to areas on a machine that get a lot of exposure – areas like the undercarriage and the wheels and axles. What we found out was that the time it takes to add Fluid Film to a machine does pay off. Snow removal is hard on our equipment and this helps keep it looking new and protected from damage. We use the stuff, our Parts Department sells the stuff, and our shop can apply the stuff if you need a hand.  If you’re more of a DIY-er check out our “How To” video, starring one of our very own technicians:
