Winterizing equipment saves time next spring

Neil Hoff

Farmers finished harvest early leaving time to winterize farm equipment before it gets cold. The goal of winterizing is to prepare equipment for the next time it’s used, whether that’s next month, next spring or next fall, says Neil Hoff with CHS. Among his tips to winterize farm equipment, Hoff tells Brownfield Ag News that taking the proper steps to care for equipment is one of the most important things a grower can do to protect the investment they have in equipment. Winterizing equipment that will sit idle for months or that will be used throughout winter will extend the life of equipment and save time the next time the equipment is used.
