The Situation

City and county road crews across the country use tractors and other equipment to maintain roads, parks, and other public areas. These crews perform numerous jobs including lawn and brush mowing, construction and routine maintenance.

Tractor cabs and canopies are a popular solution for maintenance departments to protect crews from damaging sun and debris. Because this equipment is operated in rugged areas such as ditches and heavily treed areas, the plastic canopies are often scratched or cracked from overhanging branches.

A city maintenance manager came to LINE-X looking for a solution to strengthen his tractor cabs and reduce his maintenance costs.

The Solution

LINE-X Spray-On Protective Coatings are specifically designed to handle a variety of diverse applications on a variety of different substrates, including the fiberglass or thick plastic used in tractor canopies. LINE-X is engineered to withstand cracking, peeling, and abrasion like scrapes and scratches from branches and construction hazards for agricultural applications.

LINE-X can also be colour coated to your tractor for the closest possible match – or sprayed in any colour of your choice. LINE-X provides a long-lasting protective coating that will keep your tractor cab looking professional and “like new.” LINE-X PREMIUM can provide a durable UV resistant coating that minimizes fading and sun damage.

The Results

The maintenance manager was amazed by the results. Minor contact with branches along the road is no longer a problem. The LINE-X application protects the tractors from damage during routine use which has resulted in lower repair and operating costs. A LINE-X coated cab roof adds value and may help extend the life of the tractor.

As a result, the city is spraying all existing plastic tractor roofs with LINE-X.
