Get Ready for Sorghum Season by Replacing Worn Leaf Springs
Most farmers will find themselves in constant need of Sorghum to feed their cattle. In most areas of the United States that harvest this particular kind of wheat, some farmers might find themselves dealing with drier soils in the month of May when it’s time to plant. This is why it is important to make sure that farm vehicles are ready for excavation jobs such as this. One of the best ways to make sure your equipment is ready is to check your leaf springs for undue wear and replacing them before they break causing problems and delays during the planting season and harvest time.
The Signs of Worn Leaf Springs
With leaf springs it is in the deflection of the vehicle when it is sitting that you can look for wear. If the vehicle sits unevenly, or there is deflection of the front or rear of the vehicle, this can indicate a weakened leaf spring. This may be caused by damage or settling of the springs since they are made up of several steel strips that can rub against each other causing wear and fatigue.
