As the end of the harvest season nears, it’s time to take stock of your agricultural trucks and fertilizer trucks. Purchased a new truck this year and you want to take stock of how well it performed? Have a well-loved truck that needs some attention? After all the stress of the harvest season, it’s time to take a look at your agricultural trucks.
During planting and harvest season, your agricultural truck will get very dirty and dusty. It’s extremely important to wash, clean, and take care of regular maintenance on your truck after the season is over. Give your agricultural truck a deep clean. Get all the mud, muck, and dusty out of your wheels and tires, body, and off your windows. This dirt can build up over time and even cause problems for your engine. An engine free of debris will always run best. Don’t risk a problem with your engine just because you haven’t cleaned up your truck.
Additionally, make sure that you are giving your truck regular maintenance. Whether this means an oil change or replacing parts that are going bad, it’s critical to the health of your tank or truck. After harvest season, service your truck by using a checklist. First, change your oil and check all your other fluids. Replace any broken parts and fill in chips/cracks so that they do not rust. Vacuum out the interior of your truck and shake out any mats inside. Interior is just as important as outside. Next, before storage, fill up your tires a bit more than you would usually so that they do not go flat over the winter season while not in use. However, make sure to fill them up to the right level before using your agricultural truck again so that you prevent field compaction. Clean out your tank and clean up the outside. Store your truck in a safe and secure place away from pests and the elements.
