When I started farming for a living, I realized that there were more than a few things I needed to work on. For starters, I needed to go through and think carefully about my schedule, and then I needed to read up on the biology of plants. I worked hard to understand agricultural topics, and before I knew it, my crop was thriving. It took a lot of work, but I was really pleased that I was able to get everything sorted out. This blog is here to help other people to understand agricultural problems and to address them efficiently in a timely manner.
Tractors are so helpful, but they're not always needed every week or month. It's not unusual for a tractor to sit in storage for a while. If you've bought a tractor that you tend not to use a lot, except at specific times of the year, you need to know how to maintain it properly so that its days and weeks of idleness don't leave a lasting mark. One issue you need to be aware of is changing the oil. Even if you don't use the tractor a lot, you'll still need to change the oil, as well as know how to make sure future oil changes will be on track and possible to begin with.
Months When You Don't Have Hours
Most of the time, you judge oil change schedules for tractors by hours, or hours of use. So after every 25 or 50 hours of use, you change the oil and filter. For tractors that aren't in use a lot, or that sit for a good portion of the year and see heavy use at other times, hours can be a difficult measurement to make during that downtime. Instead, you want to switch to using months. So for example, if you don't use your tractor much over six months or so, you still want to change the oil at least once, even if you don't think you topped the number of hours the manufacturer said were needed. The exact number of months varies by manufacturer, too, but it's often in the four- to six-month range.
Keep Track of the Change—on and off the Filter
One common piece of advice is to write the date and hours of the oil change on the filter's exterior so that you can see exactly when the last change was, right at the spot where you'd access the oil. That's good advice, and it's something you should do. However, keep a separate list of oil change dates and hours that doesn't stay with the tractor. If that tractor is going to sit for a while in a storage shed or even out in the elements, that writing on the filter could become obscured with dirt and debris. You'll want that extra record in case the writing becomes impossible to see. (It would actually be a good idea to keep separate maintenance records anyway, even if you use the tractor often, but it's especially important if you're not seeing and using the tractor daily.)
Store Tools With the Tractor
Sometimes the parts you need to remove to change the oil and filter can be very tough to move. If you find you need special tools to wrench a stuck drain plug off the tractor, for example, keep that tool with the tractor, wrapped up in plastic, if you can spare the tool. The next time you change the oil, you might find all the parts have become tough to remove again, and having the tools right there will make work a snap.
Whether you have a new Mahindra tractor or a vintage machine from decades ago, changing the oil and keeping the oil and filter in good condition are essential. Do what you can now to make the next oil change easier.
