Advice for day-to-day self maintenance in winter:

  1. Use the correct, best quality lubricants for your machine: 
    • Check and if necessary, replace all fluids including the correct engine, hydraulic, transmission and drive lubricants for your exact machine. New Holland recommend that you use Petronas to get the most from your machinery.
  2. Check, maintain and, if necessary, replace all hydraulic hoses on your machine:
    • Visually check the exterior of the hydraulic hoses as they can crack when flexed in lower temperatures.
  3. Detach your implement parts and store them separately:
    • When your machine is not in use, it is best to detach any attachments and store them separately to avoid damage to hitches, hinges and joints.
  4. Correct tyre pressure:
    • Check the side of the tyre and/or machinery handbook and ensure your machinery’s tyres have the correct pressure for the load.
  5. Fuel protection:
    • Fuel tanks should be stored full, to prevent condensation inside the tank and along the fuel lines.
  6. Keep batteries fully charged and warm:
    • Cold weather requires your batteries to generate nearly two times more power to run your machine, so keep them charged and warm for an easy start.
  7. Conduct a visual inspection:
    • Visually check your electrical wiring, attachments, and hoses for wear before daily operation. Look for cracks, cuts and worn spots on all hydraulic hoses, belts and tyres.
