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,” said Booth. “They’re often running service specials, inspection deals and they’re trying to keep their mechanic service bays full through the winter so it’s a really good time to get that machine in.” The checklist should then shift to the normal winterizing procedures. The list would include clean-up, checking fluid levels, servicing and evaluating the battery.
