Preparing equipment for winter storage is top of mind as farmers finish harvest and fall tillage. New Holland Manager of Product Marketing Aaron Booth recommends creating a checklist, beginning with any repairs that need to be done. “This time of year, is a really good time to work with your local dealer on service specials and deals.” The check list should then shift to the normal winterizing procedures. Cleaning, fluid levels, anti-freeze levels, servicing… and don’t forget the batteries. “It’s a good idea to not take it out all-together. Make sure you put some kind of charge on it. We all have battery issues in the winter when the cold weather impacts them.”
