Protect your profits through rain or shine, by prioritizing equipment maintenance.
Having the right plan and partner has saved Shell’s farming customers $2 million in recent years, as well as helping to meet their specialized equipment’s requirements.
Worldwide, rising equipment costs are adding to the pressures of an industry increasingly transformed by globalization.
In such a demanding environment, it’s crucial that valuable assets perform well – for as long as possible. If a large four-wheel-drive tractor and cab costs $75,000 to buy, and is used for 20 days a year, it needs to last 25 years to earn its keep.
When it comes to equipment that is used more frequently, and static machinery that runs daily, maintenance is even more crucial, because longevity and availability are key.
And yet, our research shows nearly half of all farmers don’t prioritize maintaining and protecting their current equipment.
To ensure their equipment can work as hard as they do, farmers need the right support, as well as access to high-quality lubrication solutions.
Our industry report, Powering Peak Performance in Agriculture, shows 86% of farmers have experienced equipment breakdowns in the past three years1.
Moving forward, to ensure their equipment can work as hard as they do, farmers need the right support and partnerships, as well as access to high-quality planned maintenance and lubricants.
On top of providing superior lubricants, transmission oils and greases, a valuable partner should have long-standing expertise in the agriculture sector. As well as a deep understanding of the trends likely to impact farmers’ businesses.
Whatever their goals, farmers who have worked with Shell Lubricant Solutions have saved close to $2 million in recent years – Now that’s a conversation worth having.
