    These are oldest machines. Our 721B and 821B they are 1995 and 1994 respectively.

    Those loaders are still looking good. I would assume that you keep them inside during the summer. My '97 TLB has had the paint peeling for a couple of years now (only on the plastic hood). I also noticed something interesting in the photos. According to what you posted the 821 is a '94 model, and the 721 is a '95 model. I found it a bit ironic that the older 821 has a Z-bar linkage, and the newer 721 still has the "throwback" parallel arms (unless, of course, it's a tool carrier...then it's not a throwback). Are these loaders exposed to salt or other de-icers? If so, what are you doing to keep the corrosion under control?

    Hi Everyone, Thankyou for all the compliments. Both these older machines have been painted twice in their lives. The 721 B XT has about 12000 hours on it as it was used for sewer and water work the first 7 years of its life and the 821B has 5800 hours on it. we used it the first few years of its life to load stone. Over the past 3 years we have rebuilt and restored both machines to as new condition. They have always plowed snow and are stored outside in the winter and summer. I forget this paint name but it also very special. It is the same paint that goes onto the machines when they go into the salt mines to work. It is supposed to last longer then regular paint and keep rust down. So far so good.

    We use 14ft High volume HD pushers on them. They have pushed over 30inch snow storms without any problems at all. big heavy machines do big things!! We love these machines...they are like the company pets now in the their twilight years!! :)

    Looking good Doug...are you referring to polyurethane paint?

    Not the poly paint. Its an old lead based paint that is usually only applied at the factory or in proper facility that can ventilate and spray this stuff. It is aparently somewhat toxic but is supposed to be best at resisting rust. Strongco charges allot to apply it and the usually only do it for the windsor/Canadian salt companies. It took some persuasion to get them to use this paint on our machines but that was 3 years ago...I think it might be worth it.

    You can see its different by how much deeper the colour is compared to standard paint.
