Using the right lubricant for your agricultural machinery helps prevent wear and tear, extends equipment life and minimises spend on spare parts

Reaping the benefits of using the right lubricant

Ensuring farm vehicles are well maintained is essential to running an efficient farm, especially during the busy periods. However, a study by Shell Lubricants revealed that only 29% of farmers surveyed understand how the protection lubrication offers against wear and tear can lead to cost savings.

Another key consideration, which often gets forgotten about is what happens when the season finishes and combine harvesters go into storage for the winter? Farm equipment needs to be protected when it’s not in use for extended periods of time as if it is left unprotected during the cold, wet, winter months, metal surfaces can become corroded and the resulting rust can affect the functionality of equipment. This results in costly repairs or replacement of expensive parts and components to get machinery up and running again. Using lubricants to prepare machinery for storage helps to extend the lifetime of your assets.
