Does anyone know of a rattle can paint that matches King Kutter yellow?
The folks at my local TSC, Rural King, and Orscheln's who sell them have no idea.
Another forum said Rustoleum Caterpillar yellow....wrong answer.

Your best bet to match it up, is to take something small off the machine, that has some original paint on it, in to a local body shop paint and supply store. They will take a device that scans the color off the piece into their computer software that will create them a paint code that they can then mix up the match that you need.

Just a couple of thoughts but what about Deere or New Holland yellow? Another is Tractor Supply Countyline yellow?

Hey Dave a search on the net for "king kutter yellow paint" turns up some choices but they are pricey.

Yeah Jim, I found the expensive paint that I would have to order.
I was looking for a cheaper alternative that I can buy locally.
R.J., the only removable parts are painted flat black.

We do not sell our paint but NEW Caterpillar Yellow is a very close match for touch up.

Sorry for your paint trouble Dave. I'd say you have exhausted all.the possible sources.. I would just have to go with an easily obtainable, closely matched,, and reasonably priced alterative I could find if I ran into.your problem.

If I were doing more than just touching up some spots I would have already painted it with Persian Orange II.
When in doubt contact the manufacturer. Apparently there is Old Caterpillar yellow, Caterpillar yellow, and New Caterpillar yellow.
From what I have learned from more research is that the Caterpillar yellow that I bought at Rural King doesn't match either original Caterpillar yellow. Old or New.

I was thinking about this and my conclusion is that if one takes KK at.its word, it's reasonable to believe that any of.the.paint available on.the net may not match as well.
