If you work on a farm or spacious piece of land, chances are you use a tractor on a regular basis. Because this piece of machinery is so essential to your daily tasks, you will need to do everything you can to keep it in the best possible shape. The last thing you want is your tractor breaking down when you are trying to work.

Luckily, you will be able to preserve the quality of your tractor for an extended period of time if you follow some simple guidelines. Caring for your tractor does not have to be difficult, as long as you know what you are doing.

Here are a few tips to help you care for your tractor:

  • Check coolant levels: Just as you would with your car, you should know how much coolant is in your tractor. If there is not enough, this can cause the tractor to overheat and damage the engine. Be sure to check regularly, and fill it up when the levels are low.
  • Clear out the air screen: If this part of the tractor is covered with dirt or other debris, it could end up causing the engine to overheat. Just be sure to check this screen and clear away whatever might be clogging it up.
  • Keep the fuel fresh: You want to make sure that the gas in the tractor does not get too old, as this can result in black exhaust smoke and insufficient power for the machine's engine. Whenever possible, use fresh fuel in the tractor.
