CLEAN, WINTERIZE FARM EQUIPMENT FOR EXTENDED LIFE
Winterization is the process of preparing for winter. Everything in our lives needs to be prepared for winters, even our bodies, and all other equipment in our house. Though most of the farmers are ready to park much of their farm equipment for a few months, they must remember that spring will be here quickly and the equipment must be ready to go and should be in usable condition. The care they provide to their machinery, such as proper cleaning, maintenance, and storage not only increases equipment reliability and performance, it can also improve resale value.
The following winter storage suggestions come from various resources:
Compressed air is a great way to clean hard to reach places and maybe a better choice than water. When water is needed to clean surfaces, use only moderate pressure and mild soap. Cleaning farm equipment with a power washer is good for removing dust and soil from farm equipment.
Repaint worn surfaces with spray paint to protect from corrosion. Proper battery storage can protect batteries from deterioration. Even a small current drain can eventually discharge batteries and cause them to freeze in cold weather. Clean all connections and coat terminals with a thin layer of grease to prevent corrosion.
All these measures will keep your farm equipment in a good and usable condition. And hence the farmers can use their equipment soon after the winter season without any problem. It will increase their life and also their resale value.
