CropsYou rely on your grain truck to harvest your Kansas grain and transport it from the field to the elevator. The last thing you need is a headache from the broken down truck. Maintain your grain truck, though, and you won't have to pay $4,500 to buy a used truck that's 25 years old, corroded and banged up or shell out $25K to $40K for a new truck. Maximize your harvest and save money and time when you keep your grain truck in tip-top shape all season.
  • Tires: Inspect the tread for even wear and rotate or replace the tires if necessary. Secure the lug nuts, too.
  • Brakes: Ensure you can stop with a full load when you inspect the brake pads. Change them if you notice excessive wear.
  • Fluids: When the brake, transmission, coolant and windshield washer fluids are all topped off, your truck's engine operates properly. Stock extra fluids behind the seat or in the shop to top off fluids as needed.
  • Hoses: Replace them if they are worn or have holes.
  • Wipers: Improve your visibility when you make sure the windshield wipers remove dust evenly and completely.
  • Lighting: From turn signals to interior lights, test the electrical system and bulbs.
  • Bed: Repair any holes or rust spots, and clean the bed so it's ready to haul your harvest. Don't forget to check the sidewalls, too.
  • Tarp: After repairing any holes or frays, check that the fasteners stay secure.
  • Doors: Inspect the hinges and apply grease so that the doors open and close with ease. The latch must work properly, as well.
  • Steps: Clean them and reapply slip-proof material if they need it.
Grain harvesting season is busy enough without worrying about buying a new or used grain truck. So, spend a few minutes inspecting and maintaining your grain truck before the season starts. Check that your insurance policy is updated, too. The entire process doesn't take long, and the effort will reduce headaches and help your harvesting season be a success.
