Having a well-running and serviced drive system is vitally important as you enter the fall harvest season. During this webinar, Hughes is going to review the core areas to be aware of when it comes to gearboxes, motors and overall drive systems. Safety (lockout/tagout and housekeeping) is a critical component to be aware of, as these are very powerful systems and can be very dangerous. Hughes is also going to talk about the importance of comprehensive inspections and having a preventative maintenance schedule. He is also going to describe the approaches he would suggest for documentation of the work and results.
