I noticed tractor supply changed the paint they carry. I've been using the valspar forever so I'm sure it won't match. Has anyone used this kind? How is it?

Sorry you missed the thread that was about TS switching paint , it might have been a month or two ago . I went over after reading it and bought some of the old paint ( spray and qts ) at a discount . I havn't tried the new paint yet , Al

I got 3 cans of that in Ford Blue for my cart. It seemed to be much thinner, would run much easier. Color was real close to what I wanted. Using several light coats with a bit of drying time between, I got good coverage and a decent shine from it. I hadn't used the Valspar spray before, so can't say how it compares to that.

As usual I'm behind lol. I don't think I was an active member 2 months ago. Thin and runny...probably cheap. It's always about the cost.

I asked an employee about it, he said it "Had something to do with sustainable resources".
dingdingdingdingding Code words for "Green" paint. (and no, I don't mean the color)

From the 5 second conversation, it seems to be Soy based somehow. He did say they had gotten positive feedback so far.

I'll be interested to know if they make it gas resistant. The implement and restoration series were the only paints Valspar made that were (as per a conversation with a Valspar Customer service rep.)

I have to say it was thinner than I was expecting out of a can. After the initial goof, I figured out how to spray it and it did a good job. Not much of a cost savings, about $0.50 a can and many more miles to get it. If I am there for other things, I would get more for projects.

I bought some New Holland Yellow from the new display at TSC.
Thinner than Valspar, needed more coats...
Yes, it came out yellow, but not even close to correct match...
Like so many other things of late, same price -- NO quality... :(
Looking for new source for Valspar.

When I heard that TSC was dropping Valspar awhile back, I really stocked up on it (Bought about 15 or 20 cans). I have not tried that new stuff yet, but I would assume that it is cheaper in quality than Valspar.

Our local Home and Auto Store has carried Majic spray paint for many years. It was half the price of Rustoleum. It is okay for painting things that mostly stay inside. It worked great for desks, tool boxes, and file cabinets. I had poor luck with it when I painted my sons Broadmoor years ago. It stays out all the time and faded bad in a few months but, it still is keeping the metal from rusting after several years. I've got several tractors to paint so, I am going to try NAPA. I bought a new spray gun for $10 at Harbor Freight and hopefully I'll end up with a better job.

This may be a good place to add another bit of news. I was at our local Sears the other day and while I was talking to one of the salesmen, he mentioned that they're doing away with their paint department as well. They carried Valspar and Dutch Boy in rattle cans and the prices are marked at 50% off right now. I picked up all they had left of the semi-gloss black that I use to repaint my Brinly plow after use. I don't know if this will be a nationwide discontinuation, or if it's a local decision.

I never used any TSC paints on tractors. Too much color fade & color change for my tastes. Their spray can JD Green turns a hue of blue after just 2 or 3 years, but you don't notice how bad until you get your tractor next to a proper JD green. The change happens so slow over time that you won't notice it. Fred (Meangreen) showed me years ago what TSC paints did over time, so I avoided it completely. I either get the enamel at a tractor dealer, or go to an automotive paint shop for acrylic enamel. Yes, some higher, but lasts years & years with no fade or color changes.
