 Kubota orange paint substitute

I have found a near perfect paint to match the Kubota orange. The advantage of this is that it is readily available, can be brushed on, and is inexpensive.
The paint is Ace Hardware Machine and Implement Enamel, Allis Chalmers Orange. About $6.00 per quart.
I hope you find this as useful as I have.

Another good match is Rustoleum's hardhat industrial enamel,
"safety orange". I have used it many times to paint implements ect. I just made a 3pt Reese receiver and painted
it with this spray and it looks great. Cost is about $4.50 for a 15oz can and it covers great.

I agree, AC orange is closer than the Kubota stuff.

This may be a mute point, but Kabota did change the color of their orange. I recently puchased a 7800 and was surprised when purchasing a can of touch up that there is a Kabota Orange II for newer models. The Kabota Orange from Tractor Supply is not a good match for Kabota Orange II.

 Kubota orange paint substitute

I read these posts earlier in the year and found the info very useful. I bought a can of Kubota paint from the dealer for my bx22 a couple of years ago for well over 10 dollars and still am getting over feeling ripped off. Any way I went to my local TSC store and was closely looking at the Kubota and AC orange they had on the shelf in their tractor and implement line of paint when I noticed on the chart half way between the two colors was another orange called JI case red flambeau. It really through me off at first because of the red in the name. Long story short I took it home and either I am color blind or it is damn near identical to my tractor. I keep my tractor in a barn and clean it regularly. There is a slight fade to it because of use but still cleans and shines up nicely. When I paint only parts of the tractor it is not easy to see where the new paint is applied, only more of the new shine, but blends in nicely. Not bad for 4.15 a can and available in quarts and gallons brush on, which I will be using to dress up my numerous implements.

What is the best alternative paint for the BX2200 line of tractors.

We've messed around with a couple alternatives, but Kubota seems to have done a good job at being original. Your best bet is to get the Orange II from a Kubota dealer.

I bought Duplicolor Chevy Engine Enamel (full size spray can) at Walmart for about $3.XX per spray can. I painted some brackets and attached them to my B7610 and cannot tell the original from the newly painted parts, and I am about as fussy as you can get.

All the BX tractors are the same in color. Going with Kubota is fine if you don't mind paying three times the price. I can't see the enabling of there prices. Tractor supply JI case red flambeau is the way to go.
