Common Tractor Issues

A tractor is very heavy farm machinery that requires care and caution when using any other equipment. For the performance of a tractor to be perfect, you must ensure it can work efficiently. A tractor in good condition works efficiently and fast. Some of the common tractor issues are as follows.

Dull blades

Tractors accomplish tasks best when their blades are sharp. However, they do not remain strong forever; over time, the edges wear down and dull; therefore, they cannot keep performing the tasks at hand.

The solution to dull blades is ensuring you sharpen them about two times a year. For the small mowers, it is possible to remove edges and use a file in sharpening the blades. If you cannot take the blades off by yourself, you may visit a repair shop and get help.

The engine

Spark plugs are a common tractor issue related to the engine. Over time, they may result in low performance and fuel consumption and hard starts. Some of the problems that you may encounter with a malfunctioning machine are as follows.

·       The engine is failing to turn.

·       The engine is turning but not starting.

·       The engine is starting and then dying after a while.

·       The engine is over-heating.

The solution to these engine problems is replacing the faulty parts and watching out for maintenance. The manual has everything you need to know, especially on maintenance intervals. Be sure to check if the carburetor is clogged and unclog it to avoid interference with your tractor.

The fuel system

A faulty fuel system reduces the performance and effectiveness of a tractor. The fuel system leads to a low pressure on fuel leading to a power and effectiveness compromise. The engine's fuel control level also gets jammed and makes it difficult for energy to reach the engine.

The solution for a problematic fuel system is spraying lubricant or visiting a dealership.

Electrical issues

Most electrical problems result from drainage in battery charge. It happens, especially if the tractor has not been in use for a while.

The solution to this is inspecting cables and posts to see if they are still functional and make sure to charge your battery to bring it back to life. Be sure to also clean posts and get professional tractor repair.
