Are you ready for winter

Cold weather is coming, are you prepared?

Some equipment sits through the winter, while others have to keep working. Either way, the cold will affect your equipment's performance and longevity. Be sure to prepare early and winterize when necessary.

Fuel Treatments and Filters - For diesel equipment be sure to treat your fuel with every fillup once the weather shows any sign at all of turning cold. Do this whether you need your machine in the winter or even if it will be sitting in a barn for 4 months. Fuel treatments will prevent diesel fuel from gelling and protect key components of your fuel system. It is also wise to change your fuel filter at least once a year right before the cold sets in. Even a slightly clogged filter can gel up and reduce the diesel flow to the engine. If your equipment has a settlement bowl be sure to check for any signs of water or other impurities in your fuel system regularly.

Antifreeze - Many people take their Antifreeze for granted in the winter. We are so used to just checking the fluid level and assuming we have good protection that we forget to make sure that the Antifreeze is still working. Purchase an antifreeze tester and test your fluid at least once a year to guarantee that your engine will not be harmed by below freezing temperatures.

Block Heaters, Glow Plugs and Grid Heaters - A lot of new equipment comes equipped with glow plugs or a grid heater. Be sure to read your operator's manual and familiarize yourself with these systems, also check to make sure they are in good working order so that you don't get stuck on a frosty morning. For older equipment or for machines not equipped with these systems, there is always the block heater. Some manufacturers, like CASE, provide block heaters that are designed specifically for your equipment's engine. If these are not available, or if you just need it a couple of times a year, a good magnetic heater should do the trick. If your equipment can be left plugged in over night a good heater will keep the fluids in the engine at a higher temperature allowing for easier starting.
