I haven't yet used Kroil, but it's been recommended to me several times. I use PB Blaster because it's on the shelf at the local parts store and what I have on hand will last me for years.

Anyway, the same people that make Kroil have two other products that caught my attention:

One is called Dryphite, which I was thinking might be a good lube for the snocaster chute (the rotating part, not the inside of the chute itself) since it wont pick up grit and hold it like grease will.

The other is called Weatherpruf, which looks like it would be a good protectant for my plow & snocaster once they're repainted.

Anyone ever used these? Do you recommend them, or know of something better suited for these applications? If not, I'll be the guinea pig :wink:

I have a can of the aerokroil and have found it excellent, But pricey, A mixture of Acetone and non synthetic ATF works great for penetrating oil.

I'm thinking the dry graphite would work good on the blower. But I know shit about it. :sidelaugh:

Be the guinea pig and let us know your results.

Thanks

Re: Kano Labs (makers of Kroil)

I`ve only used Kroil /Silikroil/ Gear-rope from Kano.
ALL with outstanding results, I have no doubt that any of their products will perform as advertised

Re: Kano Labs (makers of Kroil)

I use PB Blaster and it works good.I also have used Rust Check, Pen, Krown,and WD40. Fluid Film is good stuff too,but not as good for a penetrating fluid.

I got a can of aerokroil many years ago in a box of freebies at a garage sale, the stuff worked great but once it was gone, I was never able to find it for sale anywhere since.

That was before the internet though, thanks for reminding me of the product, I think I will do some research and see where I can find it again.

Go to the link in my top post and you can get a free can of Kroil with the purchase of something else. Amazon has some of their products also.

I haven't seen any of their stuff locally :sad:

Just placed the order, purchased a can of Weatherpruf and got the can of Dryphite for free.

I'll let y'all know how it works.

As an aircraft mech I have used Aerokroil for 30+ years and I am very satisfied with Kano products. I've tried many other products and not had the results that I get with Aerokroil.

Years ago, my son sprayed Aerokroil all over my Case 446 without my knowledge.

I started it up, drove onto the lawn, engaged the deck and pushed the throttle all the way open. All seemed normal as the engine picked up speed. Then the tractor began to lift off the ground higher and higher. I backed off the throttle slowly to bring the wheels back to ground gently. My son came over in tears with the empty can of AeroKroil in his hands and confessed what he did. I made him power wash the tractor three times. That cured the problem. The 446 never went airborne after that. I never did buy that product again. I checked the warning labels and found nothing that would have alerted users of this danger.

True story.

So...be careful out there.

Kano labs stands behind their products. I had a can of Kroil lose its pressure with product remaining in the can. I called to order another can,mentioned the problem,and they sent one FREE.
This stuff just kicks butt and is so much better than PB

Hi Troops,
I've been using Kroil products from Kano for 35 years with great success. I buy it direct from Kano, but I have seen it in several local stores lately. Kroil and Aerokroil I feel are the best on the market having used all the others. It does contain acetone and base transmission fluid.

Last week I was in NAPA and, for the first time ever, I saw cases of Kroil on the counter. I wonder if they're going to go retail?

Yeah whats up with that I had a couple cans totally lose pressure and some that the pressure was pretty low and made it difficult to spray unless you could get the small red tube right on the object.

Resurrecting an old thread for an update.

The Dryphite wasn't very good for the snowcaster chute. I was hoping not to use grease because it collects and holds grit, but I've yet to find a dry product that lasts. Probably try SuperLube next, maybe by using less it won't hold as much sand as grease does.
I think I'm going to try the Dryphite on the hinges and spring of the oven door, it's supposed to be good at high temps and that squeak drives me crazy.

:thumbsup: The Weatherpruf is great. :thumbsup: Going into my 3rd winter with it and everything I've sprayed still looks new, including the zinc finished hardware. Also, spraying it on a high gloss paint gives it a satin finish. Perfect for my frame.
