You don’t have to wait until the turkey cools and the dishes are done to start your holiday shopping. Best of all, you don’t have to fight the crowds or leave the comfort of your easy chair. You can do it all at shopcaseih.com. And you can take advantage of all kinds of great offers and deals while you’re at it.
Even though you might have parked your sprayer for the season weeks or even months ago, it’s important you spend a little more time with it before you park it for the winter. We sat down with Mark Burns, Case IH sprayer marketing manager, to pick his brain about the ins and outs of long-term sprayer storage. Here’s what we learned:
In the rush to button up bins, shelter grain carts and trucks and wrap up fall tillage, it can be easy to forget the combine you pulled into the shed after covering those last few acres. Set aside some time to prepare it for long-term storage. It’s good for your equipment, and you’ll be quicker to the field next year.
These days, fall tillage is as much a part of harvest as crisp, frosty mornings and meals served in the combine cab. It’s a critical step in maximizing returns from today’s top-yielding crop genetics. To get there, you must set up your tillage equipment to accomplish all it’s designed to do.
Ballasting means more than simply adding weight to your tractor. When you get it right, tractor ballasting can help you do more, spend less and reduce soil compaction. Before you launch your fall tillage program, make sure your tractors are properly ballasted. It can be a real moneymaker.
From the header on your combine to the service trailer behind your pickup and from the overhead wires across the end of your driveway to the soles on your work boots, nearly every aspect of harvest contributes to your safety. Make sure you give each detail the attention it deserves.
You can gain a lot of insight from the combine seat. It’s a good primer — and good balance — for what you learn from your office chair as you analyze the data. But first, you need to ensure you’re collecting accurate data.
No matter how well you prepare your equipment, harvest breakdowns happen. But when you control the factors you can control, you’ll minimize downtime — and your stress level. So make sure your shop is well-stocked and your MyShed™ mobile app is up to date before the first signs of trouble.
Properly used, the field data you gather this harvest season can positively impact decisions for years to come. But only if it’s properly gathered. Preharvest preparation is critical to helping ensure your combine is ready to collect accurate data.
Certainly, there are more pleasant places to spend a summer day than inside a grain bin. But replacing a bearing on an auger during the heat of harvest isn’t much fun either. Spending some time on maintenance now will help keep the grain moving this fall.
