Buffed out my 55 this fall. I used Malco Rejuvenator and a foam pad on an electric buffer for the big areas and by hand on the spots the buffer wouldn't go. Rejuvenator is excellent for oxidized paint. I highly recommend it.

Jon, Any reason not to wax a combine? I was thinking about waxing the sheet metal on my 4420 until I saw your comment. Al

No reason not to, just a huge amount of work.

Compare the number of square feet that is on a combine to say a car, then figure in that it has probly never been waxed since new. I did a 7700 jd once. Took me and my 5 kids more than a day, but it was oxidized badly and hard to wax.

I've found a hand sprayer with diesel fuel and a little motor oil will brighten an old combine as well or better than wax with a lot less effort. With so many nooks and crannies on a combine a wax job gets monotonous in a hurry. Mike

Mike, My uncle from Hindman Kentucky taught me that trick about 40 years ago, I still call it Kentucky wax and it works great.

Would like to see a picture of it. First combine I ever run was 1954 JD 55 combine. As a 17 year old kid I was king of the hill when running that thing.
