Win­ter ready farm equip­ment

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

Win­ter of­fi­cially starts to­day, al­though we’ve al­ready been dosed with howl­ing souther­lies, early snow­falls, and plung­ing tem­per­a­tures. Once crutch­ing is done, farm equip­ment main­te­nance and ’win­ter­ing-over’ tasks need at­ten­tion.

Farm ve­hi­cles are in high de­mand dur­ing win­ter. There’s stock feed to get out, fenc­ing ma­te­ri­als to trans­port, and fer­tiliser as­sess­ments to be com­pleted and reme­died. Once in op­er­a­tion, farm equip­ment that then breaks down will be detri­men­tal and costly. Me­chan­ics could be a day away, pos­si­bly more, and farm­ers can­not af­ford that down­time with bro­ken ma­chin­ery sitting idle.

RD Pe­tro­leum (RDP) is highly re­spected by farm­ing cus­tomers for sup­ply­ing es­sen­tial prod­ucts that pre­pare and main­tain farm ma­chin­ery to en­sure pro­duc­tiv­ity is kept at the high­est lev­els, de­spite win­try con­di­tions.

Chang­ing fuel fil­ters be­fore the win­ter sched­ule kicks into gear is good farm ma­chin­ery main­te­nance prac­tice. It’s now time to turn prac­tice into ac­tion.

ROXDIESEL presents a so­lu­tion. Stock­ing up on diesel fuel to main­tain farm pro­duc­tiv­ity over win­ter may be only half of the needed equa­tion; keep­ing that fuel warm enough to be poured in ex­treme weathers may be the crit­i­cal, and es­sen­tial, fi­nal half. ROXDIESEL could be just what the ’win­ter fuel doc­tor’ would or­der.
