    Default Orange NH ????

    Drove past the local rental place today and saw an Orange CUT with black letering "New Holland", whats up with that ? Didn't know there was such an animal.

    Could it have been one that was previously used for highway maintenance?? Sometimes fleet purchases require specific colors for vehicles.

    Actually, I saw a brand new New Holland in "Virginia Dept of Transporation"-orange last week near Bealeton,VA. Almost all the VDOT vehicles are this color.

    In NJ, DOT paints EVERYTHING slime green, you know the kind that glows in the dark, Ford, JD, Case, CAT you name it any color, as long as it is SLIME GREEN, guess they say you can see it better... NOT!

    I think NY DOT paints everything Orange. So it could be one of those used machines with a million hours on them, or a new unit ready to go out, hard to say.

    Hey just thought of a new Post, what does your state paint it's highway equipment???

    VA DOT better watch out, I understand kubota is suing Kioti over ( among other things) Kioti's orange paint

    Some time ago we heard about a CUT that was stolen, moved a few miles and painted to disguise it. I think it was a Deere or NH and got painted kubota orange so people would not check it out thinking it was a Kubota. They recovered it and I don't know what happened to it, but the guy didn't seem too happy that his new tractor had a fresh coat of off brand paint.

    It is not uncommon for Tractor companies to paint tractors a different color. If a company or locality is buying a fleet of tractors they can have them painted whatever color they want.
