Hey Toro Owners. Hoping someone knows off-hand what a close match to Toro Red would be? Rustoleum/Brand Color #1234 for example....

you can get toro touch up paint from toro, there are actually two different shades so be sure to get the right one for your machine

I got a spray can from my dealer, not cheap by the time it arrived it was $14.xx Canadian, kind of hits the beer fund hard.

I've already sanded/ painted the inside of my chute with gloss black for less friction in throwing snow. Thought I would hit the inside of the Auger area while I'm on a roll. So I don't think the color match needs to be perfect. Just want to hit the gizmo that actually throws the snow. With El-Nino, I'm expecting heavier/wetter snow for my area of the northeast, if we get anything. Been petty warm around here into December. Hoping the glossy finish will help reduce clogging.

Toro p/n 361-1 is "Apple Red" (old Toro red)
Toro p/n 361-10 is "New Red" (new Toro red)

Some have used Rust-oleum Sunrise Red for "New".
POR-15 makes an engine enamel called "Chevrolet Red" thats almost a dead ringer for Toro's apple red and is extremely durable stuff.
New Holland Red is another one that's been used but I can't tell if it's "New" or "Old".


Might be a good thing that it does impact the beer fund as having ample beer and painting don't always mix !!

I always think it's best to add racing stripes when sober and masking never hurts :icon_whistling::icon_whistling:

Thanks for sharing that information.

Any idea how we can know if our Toro uses the "New Red" vs the "Apple Red?"

Compare the color of the cap on a rattle can to your machine. I don't know the year they changed. Maybe Todd (PowerShift93) does :icon_smile_big:

Return what you don't use or return them both once you figure out which is the closest and pick up a quart to use in your own sprayer.

Might want to try the Rustoleum High Performance Enamel "Bright Red" too as Werring suggested.

Great info. Is there a page with color listings on it, or could we start a new one? Seems as there are a lot of handy people on this site.
I think you will have to start 1. I have been here 2 years now. and I still have no clue what goes on around here.:smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009::smiley-confused009:

Rustoleum (Farm and Implement) (International Harvest Red) , looks like the perfect match for my 2005 Toro Zmaster Commercial 60". I believe that my model has the "old" paint on it. I have spent too many hours trying to figure out which paint I have and tracking down a match for it without spending the crazy money they want for the Toro cans. I was told by Toro customer service that the paint part # for my model is 361-12 and that they did not have it anymore. I'd like to think this post may save others the time I had to invest. Take care , Brandon
