Tractor Protect 101: Year Round ProtectionAug 18th, 2023
A tractor is a major investment, and to protect their tractors, owners practice preventative maintenance routines, such as checking fluids, maintaining the right air pressure in the tires, lubricating moving parts, changing fuel filters, washing the exterior, and more. Even older model tractors can operate smoothly when kept in good condition. If your tractor runs well, you can use it for all kinds of tasks around the farm.
How Tractor Owners Use Their Tractors Throughout the Year
If you own a tractor for your personal use, you can put it to work all year long. For instance, your tractor can haul wagons, transport firewood, and be your workhorse as you build fences. If you have a lot of brush on your property that you want removed, you can use your tractor to pull a brush cutter, efficiently and powerfully clearing the land.
Do you have animals on your property? Use your tractor bucket or bale spear to move hay bales, straw bales, and more to keep your animals fed and bedded. If you are building a new shed, house, or other building on your property, a tractor is an invaluable source of power for many construction tasks.
A small tractor hooked up to a mower is excellent for mowing large grassy areas and ditches. You can also use your tractor to work up a garden spot or clean up the garden after harvest time is done. Many rural homeowners rely on tractors to operate their PTO-powered generators when their local power goes out.
Whether you own a hobby farm with a little bit of everything or a little cabin in the woods, your tractor will soon be your best friend as you complete the chores that need to be completed every day.
Winter Uses for Tractors
When winter rolls around, many rural property owners put away their equipment in sheds and garages, preparing them for months of inactivity. This is not necessarily true of tractors, though. A tractor is just as useful in the winter as it is the rest of the year. For instance, with a tractor, you can clear snow off your driveway efficiently and relocate snow into piles and not on both sides of your driveway. If you get a big snowstorm, and your truck can’t out, you can always rely on your tractor to get through the drifts.
Firewood is especially important in the winter, and if you have a wooded area on your property, you’re probably going to need a tractor to haul the logs to your woodpile. With chains on the tires, winter-grade fuel in the tank, and some extra time to warm up the engine, you and your tractor can be winter-ready no matter how much cold, snow and ice come your way.
