Preparing your farm for harvest season

One of the busiest times of the year for crop farmers is Harvest season. Don’t wait until the crop is ready to start thinking about combine maintenance, be prepared before the season starts!

Preparing your farming machinery for harvest

Prepping your machinery is one of the most important parts of getting ready for harvest and its best to start early to avoid delays in the field. The first step should be to give your combine harvester a thorough check over to ensure everything is in working condition. Remember to check the combine knives and guards, gain platforms, corn heads, and belts. Its also a good idea to think back to the last time the machine was used. Were there any outstanding issues that haven’t been resolved?

Getting your faming machinery ready for harvest allows more time for replacement parts to be ordered or time to book in with a mechanic if you need help. You can also get ahead of the game and beat the harvest season rush of farmers quickly trying to book into garages or order new parts.

Agricultural oils and lubricants

Bulk ordering consumables such as agricultural oils and lubricants before the season starts is a good habit to get into. Not only will you always have them on hand when you need to top up, you could also get bulk-buy discounts and save money.
