When you’re in the thick of planting season the last thing you want is downtime from a disruption, be it from weather or equipment breakdown. With supply chain issues not slowing down and dealers having trouble stocking parts, having a back-up strategy for finding spares is critical to staying efficient.
Here are a few tips for finding a spare part if your local dealer doesn’t have it in stock:
>> Stock up an inventory of critical ‘wear parts’ like clips, seals, nozzles, gaskets, etc. These are often the last parts thought of but often the easiest to find.
>> Find the part number on your broken part and do an online search. A few good sources of parts include Bootheel, TVH, Sparex, RDO Equipment, or Wearparts.
>> Don’t be afraid to ask your neighbor! Chances are they might have just what you need.
