As the fall harvest season continues, professionals in the agriculture industry are geared up for one of the busiest times of the year. During this critical period, equipment downtime can be costly and disrupt operations. Here at Papé Machinery, we understand the importance of maximizing your uptime. We want to share specific equipment tips on how to ensure their productivity this season and beyond.
Maximizing Productivity of Key Equipment
1. Combine Harvesters: These powerful machines are at the heart of efficient crop harvesting. To ensure peak productivity, Papé Machinery suggests cleaning and inspecting the cutting and threshing components. With proper maintenance, you can increase your productivity with minimal downtime during harvest. We offer comprehensive service and replacement parts to keep your combine harvester in optimal condition.
2. Balers: Balers are a crucial step in harvesting for bundling and packaging hay and straw efficiently. With all the action they get during the season, critical components should be checked for wear and tear frequently. Being well lubricated ensures they run smoothly without delays or clogging during operation.
3. Tillage Equipment: Some farms perform tillage operations immediately after harvest to prepare the soil for the next planting season. Papé Machinery’s top suggestion is to calibrate equipment to ensure it operates at the desired depth and angle for optimal tillage results. After, adjust settings for soil conditions, taking into account factors like soil moisture and texture.
4. Tractors: Tractors perform multiple tasks on the farm from tillage to planting the seed and bringing in the harvest. Operators should prioritize oil changes, filter replacements, and tire inspections, specific to your tractor type. If a breakdown does occur, on-site maintenance is an option with Papé Machinery’s service trucks company-wide.
