Tractor Time: How to Prepare for Spring and Summer
Spring is Here… Is Your Tractor Ready?
With the (late) arrival of spring, there’s a lot of outdoor chores to do! Make sure your compact tractor is properly maintained and ready to tackle your entire to do list!
Jason Duliban, from Duliban Insurance Brokers explains some of the springtime tasks that require a tractor:
- Grading the driveway;
- Digging post holes;
- Putting posts in the ground;
- The winter brush needs to be cleaned up;
- Cutting the grass almost bi weekly on my rural property is a must do;
- Moving rocks and other debris that nature misplaced.
Apart from starting your tractor, a thorough clean of the tractor and its engine is a great idea. At times bird nests can be constructed inside the tractor and could start a fire. It’s also recommended to sharpen blades and get the mower deck ready before that first cut. Like winter maintenance, it is a good idea to get all attachments ready before having to rely on them heavily.
