Investing is heavy duty or agricultural equipment is a big financial commitment, one which Douglas Lake Equipment wants to ensure you maintain in order to extend the life and productivity of the machinery, as well as help eliminate downtown in the spring and/or summer months when you are back in full swing. Which is why we want to explain ‘The Importance of Servicing Your Equipment During the Off-Season’!
Why End-Of-Season Equipment Maintenance Matters
There are many types of businesses and agricultural industries who purchase and/or lease our equipment that aren’t in operation 365 days a year, but rather have a season to their business or farm.
That being said, even though your equipment isn’t being put to use once you have wrapped things up for the year, it should still be put away properly to ensure that the following season finds it in optimal condition for your work season ahead.
Having your farming or heavy duty equipment fully serviced will prevent any unnecessary machinery repairs while in the midst of operations, and will also help to extend the lifespan of your equipment and maintain any warranties it may have.
Other Reasons for Equipment Servicing Includes:
- Idle equipment can leak hazardous fluids into your soul, so keeping that in check can prevent a costly cleanup
- Ensuring lube and viscosity levels are correct will prevent line freezing and future costly repairs
- End of season servicing also prevents premature replacement costs vs. maintenance costs by keeping your machinery in proper “put away” condition
At Douglas Lake Equipment, we’re here to help you with all your heavy duty and agricultural equipment needs: from rentals to purchases, as well as maintenance any season of the year. So feel free to give any one of our below offices a call, and help us help you stay optimally operational!
