    Hey guys, I have an old Bunton 36 inch walk behind its fairly old and I have been kicking around the idea of re painting the morwer what do you guys think would you just run it the way it is?? Would you paint it?? Or should I not care cause its going to get dirty anyways?? I like my equipment to look fairly nice when a client sees it. Help me out guys...

    I think you answered your own question. You last statement you said you like your equipment to look fairly nice.

    Paint it. Wash it off, or blow off the dust with an air compressor when you are done using it.
