 Beware of kubota-orange Woods attachments

That paint seems to bleach real bad. I was picking out my mowers in the dealer's lot and he pointed that out by showing me a couple of Woods field mowers painted "kubota orange" and man, were they bleached. The dealer said he just got them last season. At another lot, I saw another brand-new "kubota orange" mower with rust bleading through the welding seams, just doesn't feel like good quality paint job. In comparison, the regular yellow/tan woods mowers looked just fine. Just thought I'd throw that out there before someone gets stuck with an ugly bleached-out attachment.

Some of the OEM (Kubota's own) paint does that too.

For instance the paint on the hyd. cylinders on my FEL have faded & oxidized very badly.

Best of luck.

I agree with Kubota's paint not being a job to brag on. I notice it more on the gray.

Most of the Kubota products are powder coated, the cylinders aren't. Sorry Murf!

Orange and red fade more easily due to the fact that they absorb light in the blue, near the Ultraviolet. Red and Orange are more difficult to stablize. Heavy metal pigments were more stable than organics, but most companies are moving away from heavy metal pigments to organic pigments.

Art,

Most of the Kubota products are powder coated,

Either they started this after I bought mine, or I don't know what powder coated looks like and does or it does not hold up on my Kubotas either. I do think paint job is a weakness of Kubota.

Are there any preventive measures one could take to prolong the life-span of a paint job? Waxing maybe? wax will absorb UV and shed water..

I believe that there is an alternative paint that is available that resembles Kubota's pigment. Key word is resembles, not matches it. It was told to me as being not as good quality wise, as the Kubota paint. (dunno)

What Peters points out, about the color spectrum I agree with. Certain colors are more prone to absorbtion of UV interference than others, hence the changing or altering of their appearance.

I keep my oranges always washed and waxed (I know... Pathetic isn't it) - and they have retained their original shine and luster.
As far as the blue/gray areas go, a little wd40 on a rag will not only clean and restore the oxidation issue, however will be a rust inhibitor as well.

Willie,

hit what I was not clear on, I have a problem with rust on seams and bolts with Kubota. Also their paint will flake (gray paint)off. Have little problem with fading. Have not seen such easy metal to rust on Case or old true Ford.

I do wash them after any use that could cause rust, and a certain amount of oiling is done.

Like you skin it is the UV light that has the power to break down materials. The red and orange absorb more therefore break down faster.
It makes no difference if the paint is applied as a powder coat or an organic to the break down. Only that you have more material in a single coat and you be able to polish off the oxidation.
Car companies today utilize a clear coat on the top of the color. The clear is loaded up with UV inhibitors, like your sun screen, therefore the colors last longer.
Some waxes also have UV inhibitors or absorb some UV light and will help with the fading.
TiO2 white pigment is the least likely to fade or oxidize. This is why most boats have white hulls.
