Purchased it to use in the maintenance of the pruners and saws in daily use as a horticultural professional. The lubricant does what it claims it will do- lubricating parts and preventing rust. Excess is easily wiped away. Nothing noxious regarding its use. However, considering the cost for the small amount in that small can, the use of other products is much more cost effective. The one aspect that can be thought of to be said in favor of the Felco lube is the size of the can. It takes up little precious space in your tool bag on the road if you're willing to pay for that convenience. But WD-40 is sometimes found in the DIY stores in an extra small can, too.
