There are plenty of factors out of our control as we dig into harvest season. Don’t let a failure to prepare be one of them. As farmers, you know the work never stops, which means your equipment shouldn’t either. Gear up and get ready with maintenance options that fit your schedule and equipment needs.
Get Precise With Upgrades
Early summer is the perfect time to make upgrades to prepare for the season ahead, from installing new precision technology to upgrading your combine’s functionality. Take advantage of innovative precision systems offered by your Case IH Dealer, like Raven displays and auto-guidance to maximize yield and efficiency with accurate, even passes through the field.
Your Case IH Dealer can also perform simple upgrades to your combine that make a significant difference to performance, like Mud Hog rear-wheel assist axle kits that take you from 2WD to 4WD to handle tough terrain. Dealer-installed harvest kits can also provide an all-in-one solution to replace common wear parts or unlock new capabilities, like our rotor cage kits and cutterbar rebuild kits. Finally, don’t forget lighting and camera upgrades that provide round-the-clock safety for your operation. These upgrades can enhance harvest quality, optimize yield potential and improve overall performance. By investing in advanced technology and components, you set the foundation for a successful harvest season.
For personalized guidance, early summer is a great time to stop by a Case IH combine clinic. These clinics provide valuable opportunities to learn more about your combines, discuss strategies and make necessary adjustments. You can interact with local dealers, Case IH representatives and fellow producers, exchanging insights and gaining knowledge that can significantly impact your harvest’s success.
As mid-to-late summer approaches, it’s time to focus on specific preparations to ensure your combine is operating at its best. Calibrate your equipment’s precision technology before heading out to the field to make sure your auto-steer, GPS, yield monitors and more are in perfect alignment. Stay sharp with new cutting parts, and replace any worn guards, pins or other wear parts. Replace worn or damaged parts with genuine Case IH components to maintain optimal performance and prevent downtime during harvest. Additionally, ensure regular maintenance is performed, including changing filters, lubricating critical components and changing hydraulic fluids, engine oil and coolant with genuine lubricants. Ensure peak performance and protection with the only lubricants and filters engineered for Case IH equipment. This proactive approach minimizes the risk of costly and time-consuming maintenance in-season and maximizes efficiency.
