 Keeping paint on FEL

A question for those who use their FEL with crushed rock and hard things like that: the paint gets scraped off with the stone and I don't want rust to set in. Should I clean and paint-spray the FEL just about every time I use it on gravel/crushed rock or just keeping it clean is OK and then painting it at the end of the season?

A smart alec reply I know but in my opinion if the FEL has paint on it you really do not need it.

After you figure out how to keep paint on your FEL maybe you can work on growing grass in the kids play yard under the swings. Smile

I wire brush mine every couple of years and then respray it flat black. I don't spend much time on redoing the inside but try to keep the outside looking nicer. If you use it more, it polishes or works off the rust build-up. If you do snow in the winter, tilt the bucket so the snow pack drops out and don't turn to water and rust.

 Keeping paint on FEL

If you keep tools in a dry place like my garage I have found that they don't seem to rust.

I like to have my tools so that they are not rusty, even spades that are bare metal stay rust free if kept in a dry garage and if possible allowed to dry in the sun before storing.

I get angry when my wife or kids use my stuff and leave it outside overnight for days without me knowing. Leaving stuff outside seems to be the quickest invite for rust. It may be psychological but rusty stuff seems harder to work with, duller spade, harder digging until it cleans up. At least with hand tools.

I have yet to paint the bucket on the loader, never seem to get around to it.
