Sprayer pump overhauls
- Sprayer pumps are not covered by extended warranty as they are classed as wearing parts
- Due to the chemicals contained in them and a lengthy storage period, very often they deteriorate between seasons and can fail at the point of start-up, when you need them most!
- A sprayer pump overhaul can save you time and money – by having this done over winter you get a discount on the service and ensure a smooth start-up next season
- The overhaul includes:
- Our technician removing the pump and taking it back to the workshop
- Replacement of the diaphragm and valves
- System flush and oil change
- Refit to the machine and test
Air conditioning service
- Having an issue to see out of your cab when it gets colder?
- Cab not cooling during the summer?
- An air conditioning service will make your demist and cooling time quicker
- Our technicians will thoroughly check the system including filters, belts and clutch gap, replacing the receiver dryer and ‘O’ rings where necessary, before checking the system for leaks and recharging the gas
- This can be added onto any farm visit – just ask your service manager
- Over time machines lose power making them less efficient
- We can use our dyno to check for leaks, injection issues or problems with power delivery
- By measuring the torque directly it gives the most accurate picture of how much power your engine is producing
- This means we can enhance power delivery, improve your fuel economy and increase the lifetime of your engine
