Get Your LS Ready for Springtime
It is almost springtime! The birds are chirping, the grass is growing, and the pollen is…coming. That also means you’ve got to get your tractor ready to conquer spring. Keep on reading for some tractor prepping tips, some common springtime projects, and which attachment you may need to accomplish them.
If your tractor has been sitting for those long winter months, you may want to check it out before you crank it up. Here are a few basic maintenance tips to remind you of what you need to keep that tractor running smoothly.
Check the Fluids
Just like any vehicle, it is important to check the fluids especially if it has been sitting during the cold winter months. Make sure you check the engine oil, coolant, and hydraulic transmission fluid. Top off those fluids if they look low and change if needed.
Check the Tires
Make sure all the tires have air in them and there aren’t any tears or leaks. You can always refer to your LS Operators manual for the appropriate tire pressure.
Check the Battery
If you have stored your battery somewhere else for the winter season, make sure to reconnect it. Before reconnecting, check to see if it has enough charge in it.
Lube up the Grease Points
If your tractor has been sitting for a while, adding an adequate amount of lube will help get it back into motion and will prevent long-term wear and tear. Look for the areas on your tractor that move or turn.
Don’t forget to let the engine run after the first initial start for at least 15 minutes before putting it to work. Now that your LS is all warmed up, you might be interested in adding some Spring-time attachments for those upcoming projects.
Rotary Cutter / Finishing Mower
If you have some tough grass that needs taming, an LS Rotary Cutter can cut through the thickest grass. For a smoother appearance, consider our Finishing mower to keep your lawn in tip top shape.
A tiller is ideal for getting those garden beds ready for spring season. If gardening or food plots are on your spring to-do list, grab an LS Tractor tiller and get ready to turn some dirt.
Is leveling land a task you have been dreading? Dread no further, grab yourself an LS Box Blade and allow the tool to do the work for you.
While we don’t have a way to combat the pollen, we do have the right tool to make your project a one-man job. Get ready to sit back and enjoy Springtime because LS has your back this season!
