Getting a jump on the 2018 growing season starts with making sure your equipment is field-ready before you store it. And now, participating Case IH dealers can help make year-end maintenance even easier and more cost-effective during the Case IH Inspect & Protect Sales Event.
Whether you’re storing hay or the equipment that helped put it up, getting long-term storage right helps protect its value and longevity.
Whether you’re driving the combine, towing a grain cart, deep tilling or simply bringing lunch to the field, you’re running on rubber. Ensuring you’re rolling on the right tires and tracks — and properly caring for them — can help the season go more smoothly and efficiently.
For years, performance-matched heavy-duty engine oils from Case IH have helped save you time and money through even the most demanding conditions. Now, the most widely used engine oil in the agricultural industry has been certified CK-4-compliant by the American Petroleum Institute (API).
Seeding windows are tight for winter wheat — about three weeks in most regions. The same goes for cover crops or forages for late-season grazing. It’s a good idea to prepare your seeding equipment now before fall work inches up your priority list.
No one needs to remind you it’s time to get ready for harvest. But these reminders can help you be more efficient in your preparation and, ultimately, help your season go smoothly.
Filters and fluids may not be as flashy as new Case IH models or Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) technology, but when it comes to increasing productivity out in the field, they’re just as important. Quality filters and fluids can mean the difference between a successful and an inefficient harvest. Filters and fluids from your Case IH dealer are the only ones you need in your shed – and the lifeblood of your equipment. Their advanced design and durable construction are rigorously tested to ensure the best protection for your equipment.
We haven’t even lit Independence Day’s first firecracker. So, it’s understandable if putting your combine through its paces isn’t high on your to-do list. But between caring for your crops and preparing for the county fair, and between putting up hay and attending your kids’ ballgames, harvest time can sneak up on us.
With today’s margins, any hiccup, large or small, impacts your returns. Still, when it comes down to it, harvest is the true measure of success and a big determining factor of future successes. Kevin Hruska, who farms over 44,000 acres near Gerald, Saskatchewan, will tell you his high-efficiency harvest starts with the Axial-Flow® combine.
In many parts of the country, this planting season provided a great reminder about how easily windows for fieldwork open and close. If — rather than spending a day or two preparing your planter — you’d prefer to be in the field planting next spring, take the time now to properly store your planter.
