The Midwest weather can change from one extreme to the next. Freezing cold, hail, relentless rain, and scorching dry spells can not only impact the land but it can have lasting effects on your farming equipment that can lead to permanent damage. These effects can bring your farming business to a screeching halt and usually at the worst time.
Shell Industrial Business Development Manager Jeremy Strausbaugh explains how weather and environment can impact bearings on your farm equipment, which can lead to equipment failure and downtime.
The longer your grease lasts, the longer your components last, and the less lubrication maintenance for your farming equipment. With a full product range of Shell Gadus greases, Shell Lubricants can help you select the grease to best meet your needs.
High-quality planned maintenance and lubricants that keep equipment in peak operating condition is the best way to get the highest possible performance out of your farming equipment. The right combination of these factors can significantly reduce wear-and-tear and prevent corrosion, which in turn can save a farm from a broken-down vehicle and lost time and money.
When it comes to equipment that is used more frequently, and static machinery that runs daily, maintenance is even more crucial. For farming equipment that is customized to fit into specific building types or serve a specific purpose - replacing these assets can lead to enormous expense. In short, farmers need agricultural machinery that runs effectively and efficiently on any terrain, come rain or shine. Longevity is critical, as is availability.
