Tractors operate to their full potential when they are properly lubricated. For this reason, AgSpares advises New Zealand farmers to prioritise grease points during their regular tractor maintenance checks. Keeping grease points clean, sealed, and at capacity will go a long way toward keeping a tractor in peak condition for as long as possible.

Grease points can be found in several locations on any tractor. When conducting a routine tractor maintenance check, be sure to check grease points along the master brake linkage shaft and kingpins, the steering cylinder ball joints (both left and right), steering components, ball joints, bearings, clutch linkages, three-point hitch pivot points, and tie rod ends (both left and right). These grease points should be cleaned before use to avoid forcing dirt and debris through the zerks and inside the seal. AgSpares offers both pistol grip and lever grip grease guns, depending on preference. Replacement grease nipples are also available in a number of angles to ensure that every grease point is also accessible.

AgSpares is regularly adding new parts and accessories to their wide range of new and used tractor parts for sale and undertaking new late-model tractor dismantling projects every month. Established in 1983 and still a family business, AgSpares has helped thousands of customers in New Zealand, Australia, and around the world find the tractor parts they need. With aftermarket products available from respected brands like Vapormatic and Bepco, AgSpares are now the preferred supplier for Capricorn Coop.
