Snow blower paint


Inspecting my snow blower I notice a lot of rust spots in the chute and auger area. Causing throwing distance to decrease .
I can see where it would be time consuming to dismantle the auger and sandblast this area but I think this is well worth the effort !
All I need is some advise on a good paint, some thing hard to with stand stone chipping ect. If you have used any types of this paint ( I would rather spray )
If possible, But willing to mix a two part epoxy . I figure if I'm going to do this job I want to do it right once.

My color now is Orange and cream ( Simplicity ) company snow blower.
I might add here It's about 18 years old and Has not failed in starting with more then two pulls. of course I do regular maintenance . oh, Ya I put a new set of wheel on it, this fall, You might say I wore the wheels off !!

That's a term I'm not familiar with.

I'd use some graphite-based paint. Brush on or spray on. Any paint on the inside of the impeller/auger area is going to get worn off anyway. Use paint that will make it more slick.

Farmers use this stuff all the time.

Hummm I never heard of this type of paint. I see they have a spray can also!
Thanks for the heads up It just so happens there is a Tractor supply at the end of my street and a Family Home Farm Store in town also.
It's snowing here again In Michigan, Time to Start the old blower up.

It's interesting stuff. Just keep in mind that it won't stay permanently.

But look at it this way: It's not going to destroy anything, and if you really don't like it, you can strip away the remainder of it (in the spring), then prime & paint with something else.
