Primary Authors: Hanna, Mark; Petersen, Dana

Abstract: Machinery represents a significant portion of capital costs, second only to land in many farming operations. A well-kept fleet of machinery improves the ability to respond to changing field conditions and other seasonal needs. Past surveys of tractor owners indicate that most are aware of routine maintenance schedules and wish to follow them to protect their equipment investment. Machinery test data supports filter replacement and other general maintenance. When performed at intervals no greater than those listed in operation manuals, the fuel savings are measurable.
