Anyone doing pre-season paint touch ups?

i just came into possession of a 2007 ST724. Been doing research, some cleaning and maintenance. decided to attempt some rust repair/repaint that most blowers have on their lower level, especially the buckets. kind of did a quick scrape, sand, clean, rust reformer, and several Allis Chalmers enamel coats.

going to need to let that sticky paint set for several days before putting the scraper and shoes back on.

It usually looks worse after I do this so I just apply fluid film or similar to halt the spread. Unless the entire component can be removed/painted easily (like an auger, chute or a wheel)

Nice job! I took it a little further and sent the parts which had some surface rust sandblasted and powdercoated.

thx.

i only had a few days to do this much. wanted to dress it up a little and try to arrest the surface rust/paint loss before winter. not even sure how much i will use it (i only use a shovel on several properties; am toying with the idea of getting a ramp hitch cargo carrier).

Angle grinder with a flap wheel to bare metal then prime and paint. Just make sure that it's warm enough for the paint to properly cure (did my touchups about 4 months ago . . .).

you beat me to it. when i get a new used machine i do this when i take the augers and impeller out to service them. if the bucket come off , change the impeller bearing , weld up cracks , flap disk. ( have 3 cheap angle grinders from Harbor with different grit disks ) and go to town. almost looks like i know what i'm doing......

on a side note I use these cheap grinders a lot and as of yet they haven't failed .

Interesting post. I never heard of Allis Chalmers enamel or fluid film. So let me understand. If you machine is in good shape, you just spray the Fluid Film? Also, is there a spray can (correct color) of Allis Chalmers enamel??


The things I learn here. Obviously it is winter in NY. Can Fluid film be sprayed in the winter? I usually wax and spray with BOESHIELD T-9 Rust & Corrosion Protection/Inhibitor and Waterproof Lubrication.
