As most farmers will tell you, agricultural machinery and equipment is extremely expensive. The cost of a combine in 2014 ranged anywhere from $330,000 to $500,000. Obviously, with prices like those, it behooves you to use the best available protective machinery coatings. Choosing the right paint can add years to your equipment’s lifespan.
The farm is, perhaps, the most destructive place for machinery to weather. Farm equipment is used regularly though all conditions, from driving, dusty winds and blazing sun to unexpected hail storms, the elements takes a severe toll on your paint. Unfortunately, once your paint begins to chip and scratch, the metal beneath becomes susceptible to rust. And rust is a machinery killer. Oxidation will weaken your equipment which requires you to either repair or replace it. This costs money; money you could be spending elsewhere.
If you want the maximum return on your significant investment, you must not only protect the engine by changing the oil and other liquids, you must also protect the body and undercarriage as well as the engine. Choosing the right agricultural and machinery coatings is crucial. Not only does it keep you machinery looking great (which can be important if you’re considering reselling your agricultural machinery sometime down the line) it also keeps it performing optimally.
