Between the big three (Dupont/PPG/BASF) it is th Chevy/Ford/Dodge thing you elude to but each also has their sub models and it is more important that you use a very knowlegable supplier to make sure you are in fact comparing apples to apples as far as the actual system and the technology behind it. Is it industrial urethane , urethane , acrylic urethane , acrylic enamel , acrylic modified enamel , synthetic enamel and then single stage or base cote clear cote. Then is it two part epoxy primer , two part acrylic urethane primer , self etching primer and what exactly are they specifying for respirator? Now that you are thoroughly confused you can see why it is paramount that you get a very knowlegable supplier and NOT just the best "salesman". Keep asking questions and getting opinions until you are completely satisfied that you have what is right for your tractor and priorities you have for it's appearance and intended use. I use PPG because they were ahead of everyone back in 1985 when base/ clears and pearl cote paints came out and also because even now that everyone has cought up , I still have the same guy running the store as back then. He knows what he's talkin about and he knows I am fussy! It works for me. By the way, "industrial" doesn't always mean better looking OR longer lasting. Sometimes just means a compromise paint that fits the volume and price constraints of a high volume factory. They usually don't have the DOI (distinctness of image) or flat shine of automotive paint. Machinery needs "orange peel" to hide metal/welding and warping flaws and mill flaws in metal and resist runs from less than skilled painters and therefore will not flow out flat as good as non-industrial paint. Clear as a mud, right???
