Regular maintenance keeps your tractor running smoothly. Tractor maintenance enhances performance and extends machine life to 15–18 years. Maintaining a tractor requires some guidelines. Here are some tractor maintenance tips:
1. Read the manual:
Every brand includes an owner’s manual. So, get the owner’s manual and read it. An operating manual is included with a maintenance schedule.
2. Get all the maintenance tools
Getting maintenance tools for a tractor is different than for a car. So, get a wrench and other tools to repair your tractor.
3. Protection From Rain
Keep the tractor dry, especially the exhaust, seat, and gauges. Keep it covered or in a garage and protect it from rain.
4. Check Fluids Regularly
Regularly check tractor fluids to avoid costly injuries. Consult the owner’s manual. Also, check the battery electrolyte and engine oil.
5. Check tyre pressure:
Tire pressure varies by tractor. A tractor’s front and rear tyres may need different pressures. So keep an eye on that.
6. Check Brakes
Manual or automatic brakes? Just lubricate and service your brake system. If your brake system is damaged, act soon.
7. Watch The Filters
Dirt and dust can contaminate the system and cause component failure. Tractors have filters to protect the system. Regularly check the fuel and air filters. No cleaning, no use.
8. Must Be Well Lubricated
A well-lubricated tractor operates well. Check the oil level often and use heavy-duty lubricant. Avoid auto and light oils. Clean and lubricate the tractor’s working parts.
9. Don’t Overload
Use a recommended size attachment for whatever job you’re doing. Avoid overloading your tractor to prolong its life.
Maintaining your tractor extends its life. To get the most out of your tractor, follow the above tips. You can also contact AgroAsia Tractors via our contact form or any of our social media sites. We’ll respond as soon as possible.
