To maximize the life of your drive train and keep it operating trouble-free, drain water from the gearbox and center drive and make sure the gear lubricant is at the proper level.
Be sure to fill deep wheel tracks during the off-season to reduce stress on irrigation, tillage, and harvest equipment. To help prevent future tracking, consider changing to a different type of tire, adding a floatation device, or modifying the sprinkler package to reduce water application to the wheel tracks.
Damaged motor contactors can reduce the life of the drive unit motor, so be sure to inspect and replace worn contactors.
Tires are vital to the operation of irrigation equipment. Be sure to check tire pressure and tighten lug bolts, as well as evaluate the overall tire condition.
Sprinkler packages should be changed at least every 10,000 hours of operation. Regularly check for broken or worn sprinkler components and replace them as necessary. Also consider running a new sprinkler design that could maximize efficiency for soil and crop type.
