1. Overview

  • The correct servicing and maintenance of agricultural machinery is vital, considering the conditions under which they operate.
  • Keep up to date with the latest developments and new implements and new technology (more bearings fail, for example, from over greasing than under greasing).
  • Keep work shops clean and dust free. Remove chain from implements during off-season and lubricate
