Most of us have had our first taste of winter — some of us already have had a bellyful. Regardless, we know there are likely more, bigger bites to come. Is your farm ready for whatever blows in this winter?
Don’t feel bad. You’re not alone if you pushed your equipment harder and stretched maintenance schedules through the long harvest season. It’s now time to get back on track.
Whether you’re running one combine or 10, two tractors or 20, you’ve got a fleet, and you count on it to keep you productive. It’s much more than equipment; it’s an asset. Like any asset, it requires management to achieve an optimal return.
During the long days of this fall’s harvest, your mind likely wandered — maybe even daydreamed a bit — thinking about next year and the needs of your operation. If you decided it’s time to add, replace or upgrade tractors, how will you decide between tracks and wheels? The good news is, now you can choose either or both.
