Here's a link to what I used on my blower several years ago. It was PPG AUE370 polyurethane w/ hardener. It's known as "DTM" (Direct To Metal). Nice part is that bare metal or good solid remnants of paint and no priming. Scroll down to Post #10:Valspar sells a perfect match Kubota II color!
Great paint......use some thinner, .....and definitely use hardner!
I am not a first time spray painter.I've been getting the Kubota orange from tractor supply. Color match is good and it covers well. Also it's a lot cheeper than paint at the dealer.
I suppose that would be in spray cans?A few years ago on this forum somebody suggested Rustoleum Chevrolet engine orange, I tried it and the match was spot on. Had trouble finding it but not since we got a Menards they have it all......
Agreed!Built a project in May for my Kubota and used Rustoleum Kubota orange paint on it. Here it is early October and the plow that sits outside is fading fast. Paint was also extreemly thick right out of the can.
Not impressed with the stuff.
Kubota certainly must use "machinery paint", because their factory paint seems to fade when you start looking at it.Most paints in a spray can have UV inhibitors in the formula. Spray cans are fine for small item spraying or touch-up work, but for overall refinishing, you need quality paint and a spray gun. I would use a single-stage automotive paint with a harder in it. I don't like machinery paint for the tractor that sees a lot of sun, because the paint will eventually fail. I once used a white machine paint on the roof of a car, and it started to turn yellow within a year. Had to sand it off completely, and repaint it with automotive paint. Machinery paint is good for inside use but doesn't hold up to the weather.
