Lubricating poles on portable

Recommended Posts

Does anyone lubricate the poles on their portable so they slide easier? If so what do you use?

I have been wondering the same thing. I am thinking of using some endust on them. Should not build up and can wipe mostly all of it off. If it stays as slick at the top of my dresser it should work out pretty good. Anyone tried that? How did it work? Thanks././Jimbo

I've used silicone spray, works like a champ. Petroleum products can thicken and/or trap dirt, graphite is very messy.

I take a small amount of steel wool and wipe down the poles. Then I wipe the poles down with a dry cloth. Then I spray a little silicone on the cloth reg and lightly wipe the poles down. This has served me well. I do it at the start of the ice season and about mid way through.

I wipe them down with cooking oil... seems to work well so far. I usually do this before my first time out with the house.

I use Hoppe's #9 dry lubricant (used on guns) works great doesnt attract dirt and also works great on my snaps for boat cover ,,Remington also makes a similar product

Try an old candle. Wax stays put and doesnt stain anything or stink up your fingers if you touch it

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
