'Gun'grease can dry out over time.I use "Soft plow coating' in an aerosol can from My John Deere dealer.Scours off completely in one round.Tryed something different(from here-YT)this spring....Place several chuncks of asfault in some gasoline,let 'soak'for a little while.Apply the 'soup' with a paintbrush.The gas will evaporite leaving the 'tar'.Seems to last well.

Plow coat paint lasts about 2 years, in this climate. Sold by the gallon, TSC, maybe Agrisupply.com. It is a creosote looking soft tar or wax coating that scours off real easy.

I paint mine with a cheap flat-black paint that I buy from my local Fleet-Farm store. It lasts for years even if the plow is stored outside. I once had a 3-14 plow that was stored outside for several years and it scoured right off once put in the ground. Al

Best stuff I've seen used is old "rubbery" wagon wheel grease. Rain didn't even seem to wash it off. Dad used the last of it over 30 yrs ago. In the more recent past I used plow kote and since have gravitated to just cheap black spray paint from the hardware store with satisfactory results.

A coating of used engine oil, then a coat of cheap Black Enamel paint lasts all season and rubs right off..

I used the soft black spray-in-a-can stuff from JD. After the second can spraying all over me as I sprayed/painted I had enough and went back to good old implement grease..just 20 pumps per bottom and a pair of old cloth gloves. I don't attempt to cover the plow shares all the way down. However, I store my plows undercover, as it keeps the trip mechanisms and pivots from rusting/seizing up and deteriorating. And keeping ultraviolet rays off the tail wheel keeps the rubber in good shape for many years.

Years back guys used 00 track roller grease, just a few inches in the pail and a wide paint brush with short bristles, just wipe it on every night to keep rust from starting. It would last over a season if the cows did not lick it off. Now I use graphite paint.

Have always used gun grease never had a problem. Have used, used motor oil but might wash off in the rain if stored outside. Cheap spray paint if stored outside for more then one season.

I agree with Diydave. I have the best luck with TSC plow coat. When you are going to use it the next season all you do is drop the plow in the ground and go. If you want to make it a little easier spray wd40 on the plow before starting.
