 Paint question

Power washed the Cub today and noticed that paint on foor rests, front axle and loader has some spots that could use touching up. My question is has anyone touched up tractor with the spray can paint you can buy at most farm stores. Is it a close match? Am I better to try and touch up paint or just leave well enough alone. Tractor doesn't look bad mind you, but seeing some metal in spots. ThanksPJ Drew

 Paint question

PJ: My experience has been limited to JD green, yellow, and generic satin finish black; and to Massey red. I have had no great disappointments with color matching, although the JD green seems to match better on an older JD tractor than on a newer one. If there is time in the fall before the weather gets too cold to paint, I always try to touch up any major dings. I don't know if it does any good long term, but it makes me feel better. This may sound nuts, but I always try to repaint and then wax the inside of my loader bucket. I think it makes even slushy wet snow slide out real nice. (When I tell anybody "I waxed my loader bucket yesterday afternoon" they think I'm crazy.)

The better part of the paint job is the surface preparation and then masking off areas that will catch overspray. If you do a good job with that part of it, even a slight color mismatch is not that bad. I would suggest going to the dealer for the spray paint, your chances are a bit better for an exact match.

Bernie;

Don't feel lonely, I have been known to wax my snowplow blade a time or two. It does help with the wet snow.

David

Bernie,
Thanks, I think I will try it before the snow flies. I live in Minnesota, so I use the loader a lot for snow removal and I think I'll try the paint and wax treatment to bucket too. Makes sense to me. SO far its been great weather and not a snow flake to be seen.
PJ Drew

 Paint question

PJ & dsg: I'm not the kind of guy who likes to spend time doing something just to appear "eccentric," but I have two tractors with loaders - one older; one newer - and I'm totally convinced that a painted, waxed loader bucket (the newer one) will shed a load of snow much better than an unpainted, not waxed, smooth metal but not rusty loader bucket (the older one). It's not 100% foolproof, but there have been times when after dumping a load, the older bucket would have more snow/slush stuck inside it than had just fallen out. Not very efficient. Under the same conditions, the waxed bucket might have a scoop-shovel-full stuck in the corners. I hope nobody waxes their loader bucket and then at the end of the winter looks back and feels like they wasted their time. But since the weather is being so nice here in Wisconsin right now, I'm going to "waste" another half hour of my time and wax my snow blade like dsg does. I'm convinced.
