Any farmer or person that earns their living in agriculture probably holds their tractor as their prized possession. A properly operating tractor can mean the difference between success and failure. A farmer’s tractor is their tireless workhorse that is capable of performing many different tasks necessary to have a successful season and feed their families while continuing to grow their business. Regular tractor care and maintenance is a must if you want to keep such a hardworking piece of equipment running for a decent amount of time. That means regular preventative maintenance like oil changes, hydraulic fluid replenishment, radiator clearing, and more. Some of these tasks have to be performed multiple times in a single working day to be effective and avoid costly repairs or even a total tractor replacement. However, tractor operation, care, and maintenance can be quite a difficult task without the right tools and accessories.

Greasing is a necessary evil for all heavy duty equipment and tractor users. If a tractor is not properly and regularly greased the essential mechanisms that allow it to function properly will ultimately fail. This means that expensive repairs are an inevitability if operators are not making greasing a priority. However, greasing can be a frustrating and difficult workday interruption. Fortunately, an innovative company called LockNLube has created a locking coupler that is guaranteed to lock in place around most grease fittings so that you can keep both hands free for greasing. This heavy-duty coupler is rated for up to 10,000 PSI and will not leak or pop off once properly secured to a fitting.
Wire Tight is an innovative product that makes tightening loose barbed wire fences a breeze. The Wire Tightbarbed wire fence tightener is a fantastic tool and accessory for any tractor operator because it can be used to rejuvenate barbed wire fences as you
come across problem areas in a small amount of time with very little effort. Storing your Wire Tight on your tractor while you go about your daily tasks eliminates the need for long and drawn out treks across your property just to refresh your fence line. Fix a fence line in minutes as you go! The unique design is specially calibrated to take up six whole inches of slack with each bite! Check it out in this video!
The Radiator Genie is a patented tool that can be easily used to clean out tough to reach spots on your tractor or other kinds of farming equipment. The kit comes with an air wand that hooks up to a compressor and can be used to blow out debris. There is also a water wand that can be easily hooked up to a common water hose. Each wand is
specially shaped to reach behind radiators to make sure every bit of grease and grime is removed and your radiator stays unclogged and you can keep on farming. I especially love the fact that the water wand eliminates the need to lug around a heavy (and many times hard to use) power washer every time I need to wash out my tractor’s radiator.
