As planting season approaches, now is the time to make sure your machinery is running smoothly. Choosing the right lubricant can minimize the wear and tear on your tractors and other equipment, which means you can stay in the field longer and finish planting quicker. This is especially important because, as we’ve seen in recent years, that planting window can be very small if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Kevin Meyer, Cenex tech services, said they have several options for a variety of needs.

While we wait for the snow to melt, Meyer said this is a great opportunity to do some maintenance, and premium lubricants can play a big role in that.

Meyer said a premium option is a much better investment in the long run because it means your machinery will be running smooth for a much longer period.

These products aren’t just useful for planting season, though. Meyer said using lubricants for preventative maintenance is important throughout the entire crop season.

Meyer added that synthetics are continuing to become a better option for lubricants.
