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.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
