Since there are no PM's, I will ask here. I have heard of some spray on oil from Amsoil that takes the place of 90 weight gear oil. I am interested in this for chains on our Mustang Telehandler. Do you know what this is?

Synthetic Multi-Purpose Spray Grease, NLGI #2

The same great AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Purpose Grease in a convenient spray formulation. Ideal for greasing hard-to-reach equipment such as hinges, springs and other common applications.

Package sizes include:

10.5-oz. Spray Can

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

AMSOIL GLC multi-purpose, EP grease is qualified against the highest grease standards, NLGI GC (wheel bearing) and LB (chassis), and is designed for multiple use applications. This grease is composed of synthetic base oils and lithium complex thickeners that provide the film strength, shear resistance and mechanical stability required for good grease lubrication. This combination excels in high and low operating temperature ranges by providing excellent oxidation stability, high temperature dropping points, good low temperature torque values and good low temperature pumping capabilities. GLC Grease is compounded with an effective oil soluble extreme-pressure additive for heavy loads, plus oxidation and corrosion inhibitors that impart good oxidation stability and rust protection.

That is the only spray grease that i know of. I bought a can of it with my last order. It is a redish color and has a thicker consistency to it. Definately more of an oil, than the say the wd40 stuff. I can't say it is the 90 weight class, but it probably would do the trick for you.

The spray grease will work, but not my first choice. AMSOIL has a synthetic spray 'wax' that is the best chain lube I know of - works on all types of open chains from dirt bikes (motorcycles) to agricultural implements to the small chains in a lot of small equipment; slow speed and high speed. It penetrates then dries to a hard coat that dirt doesn't stick to. It lubricates the side rails, the pin to roller, and the sprocket to chain contact too. It works with o-ring chains and non-oring too. (It is a slow set - typically overnight to hard coat.) It comes in a 1 lb spray can that sugg. retial is $5.00

Product name: AMSOIL Heavy Duty Metal Protector. It also works as a spot undercoater, corrosion protection, battery terminal protectant. It is a heavy or thick-film coating, with a yellow to brown color.

    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!
