The winter season is a time for maintenance for farm equipment that went through a very difficult harvest. CHS Lubricants Marketing Manager Erin Wroge says the equipment needs a thorough examination. “We had a super challenging harvest with wet conditions so you always want to start by checking those fluids and change oils as recommended by your OEM or if there is any kind of wear.” The hydraulic fluids also need to be topped off. “Make sure you minimize the air space and the opportunity for condensation in your hydraulic fluid.” Wroge says a high quality grease is also recommended so the equipment is ready to go for spring planting.
