Tips on Tractor Maintenance

Written by Worthington Ag Parts

Maintenance is important to maintain performance and prolong machinery life. All you need to do is regularly check the parts, apply or replenish oil on engine and bearings. Here are some tips on what you can do.


For tractors used every day, you should always check the level of oil in the engine and make sure its always replenished. Use the right grade of oil always. Check if the radiator has ample supply of water, refill it whenever needed.

Weekly routine checks should also cover the parts you check daily. At the end of the week, check the air pressure of your tractor tires. Most likely, it gets low after heavy workweeks, so make sure it’s in the right level. Next, you can check the fan belt elasticity. You’ll know you may need to change the belt after checking the elasticity with your thumb. You also need to check the oil filter and make sure to drain any traces of water on it. The water level of the battery should also be refilled weekly or whenever needed.

If you need to repair your tractor, used farm equipment and parts are available online. These stores come in very handy especially if you are looking for a specific model or brand. You can check first with the website for different brands like Ford tractor parts, John Deere tractors parts, and bargain deals to see if they’re available before going to the local store. Alternatively, you can just order them online and have the parts shipped to your address.
