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.

    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
