Farming is always full of jobs that you can feel you didn't "sign up for" including the seemingly constant turnover of purchasing new machinery and tools to keep your farm ticking over and functioning smoothly. However, taking time to first purchase quality tools and equipment and then take care of them, including regular maintenance checks will help ease that particular burden off your shoulders.If you want to check your fencing machines for wear and tear, there are several different things you should check. If these show significant disintegration, new parts or a new model should be purchased.- Check over all the couplings and clamps to ensure they fit firmly and are undamaged. If they are worn they will need to be replaced.- If any of the wires are frayed, broken or damaged they will need to be replaced. Sometimes the wire begins to be stretched a little and needs to be readjusted. It is good to lubricate the wire and retest it.- Examine the farm China wiper arm carefully for any hairline fractures or stress breaks. These can cause a dramatic problem if not attended to, including full breakdown and potential injury to the user. It is best to contact your supplier about resolving these with either a mend or full replacement.- Check all moving parts are well lubricated, particularly the hammer slide and mast to ensure it works smoothly and safely. Also pay attention to any pivot pins. If you have mended any areas in the past with welding, carefully check over your welding to ensure it is still holding.- Any pulleys on the machine need to be free spinning and working smoothly. If it's sticking at all or feels a little rough it's advisable to replace these parts.- Check the bolts to ensure they are all firm. Make sure they are all there and replace any you find are missing.- Check for leaks in the hydraulic hoses and couplings. If you find leaks, these need to be replaced.
