Get Your Tractor Ready for Winter with All States Ag Parts

Check out some weatherization tips. Battery Care:
A high cranking amp battery is best for cold weather.

Battery Care
A high cranking amp battery is best for cold weather. At least 800 to 1000 cold cranking amps (CCA). Check battery connections. Prior to cold weather setting in, check all of your battery terminals and grounds. A battery heater can help keep your battery cranking power at its maximum during cold winter weather.

Tire chains
Four wheel drive and ag tires do wonders in the dirt but on snow and ice they quickly lose their traction. Add rear tire chains and, if needed, front ones (4x4 only). All States Ag Parts carries a complete line of tractor tire chains, as well as skid steer chains.

Engine Oil
Synthetic oil can help your engine turn better on those really cold days. Synthetic oil does not thicken as quickly as conventional oil when cold. In addition, use an engine heater to warm oil and maintain proper oil viscosity.

Hydraulic oil
Just like engine oil, cold hydraulic oil can become very thick and take time to warm up. You can help reduce the time by using ATF or synthetic hydraulic oil. Use a tank heater to keep hydraulic oil from thickening.

Keep Yourself Warm
Check your blower motors or add auxiliary heaters to keep your cab warm. All States Ag Parts has a great selection of vinyl heater cabs that will keep you warm in your tractor. We also have enclosures for skid steers.
