It’s Equipment TLC Season!
Get a checkup before winter hits!
Most of us wouldn’t possibly think of skipping a six-month dental checkup. After all, we use our teeth every day, right? We want our teeth healthy and clean, and we want any issues identified early. When you use equipment all season and then neglect maintenance, it’s like skipping your dental checkup. That time of year is fast approaching when we think about putting equipment away for the winter. It can be REALLY tempting to simply park that mower, tractor, planter, or combine in the corner and let it hibernate until next year. But did you know that this is the most critical time for machine maintenance? Many issues in the spring start with improper or neglected postseason maintenance. Nagging issues or problems you identify all season while using your equipment are still fresh in your memory, so now is the time to get scheduled for an inspection or get those repairs done before you put it away for the winter. Your equipment performs day in and day out all season long, so it’s time to make sure that it continues to do that for many seasons to come. Another reason to handle it now is to avoid the springtime peak in the service departments. Getting your machine ready now before next season can help avoid any delays because our shops are swamped. KSR has a number of winter service specials for all types of equipment, from a D Series lawn tractor all the way up to an S Series combine. Contact us today and find out what’s available for you and get your appointment scheduled!
