Viscosity Oil

In recent years, there has been a debate about whether the additional protection provided by synthetic oil is worth the higher price tag. Read on to learn how synthetic oil is different from conventional oil and what benefits this offers you.

 

machines

Conventional lubricants are made from mineral base oils, which come directly from a natural source, mostly crude petroleum. Making these oils require less refining than synthetic oils which makes the end product less expensive. The downside to this more natural product is that the molecules in the oil are not uniform in size. This can create more friction and waste build up in the oil.

Synthetic oils also begin as crude petroleum but are highly refined to create a uniform molecular structure. This greatly increases lubrication performance providing extended protection in the most extreme conditions, increased fuel economy, and an extended service life.

Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil

What are the advantages of Synthetic oil?

Synthetic oils bring 5 main advantages over conventional oils:

  • Higher temperature resistance. Synthetic oils can safely handle higher operating temperatures without breaking down. Synthetic oils are thus recommended for the heavy-duty, turbocharged or hard-use applications seen in agricultural equipment.
  • Better low temperature performance, making easier cold starts. Synthetics flow freely at extremely low temperatures (-30 °/- 40° C)
  • Better engine protection. As oil moves through the engine, some of the additives can be sheared (cut in half) by high-speed engine parts, which thins the oil. Full synthetic motor oils resist shear under heavy loads better than conventional oils. This helps synthetic motor oil maintain its viscosity grade, which offers better engine protection and withstands more extreme engine conditions.
  • Lower oil consumption. Synthetic motor oils experience less "boil off" than conventional motor oils. A good synthetic will lose only about 4 % of its weight when run at 400 degrees for six hours, compared to a 30% loss for conventional petroleum based oil. The lower evaporation rate means less oil consumption between changes.
  • Cleaner engines. Synthetics don't break down or sludge up as fast as ordinary mineral based oils do. This means that all your equipment won't accumulate sludge in the engine as fast and lubrication efficiency will be maintained.

Donation to Hospitals of Regina Foundation

Donation to Hospitals of Regina Foundation towards a Transport Isolette for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Today at Agribition we were able to be part of the presentation of a donation to the Hospitals of Regina Foundation on behalf of Young’s Equipment, MacDon, Väderstad, and Farm Credit Canada. The combined donation of $300,000.00 between the four organizations will fund the purchase of a transport isolette for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This piece of equipment is used to transport babies born in hospitals and communities outside of Regina and who need care in the NICU to Regina to receive that care. This obviously fits well with the communities where we live and do business, and the opportunity to partner with MacDon, Väderstad, and FCC, who we have such strong relationships with, and to support an organization like the HRF, was exceptional.

"Each year, 500 babies need specialized care provided in our NICU in the Rawlco Centre for Mother Baby Care at Regina General Hospital. For babies born outside of Regina, it is critical that our teams have the specialized technology needed to transport these newborns to our NICU in order to survive. Thanks to a generous donation of $300,000 from Young's Equipment Inc. , MacDon Industries Ltd. and Vaderstad Canada, our NICU transport team has a new Transport Isolette, a mobile mini-NICU capable of delivering state-of-the-art, critical care to these fragile babies during their journey to Regina."

Take care of your sprayer now, and it will be ready to go next spring.

Timely application during those tight spray windows every year is a big reason to own your own spray equipment, and once it’s time to go next spring you want your sprayer to be ready to go. Before you tuck your piece of equipment away for the winter, some maintenance will serve you well. We suggest to not delay winterizing your sprayer in order to avoid potentially high costs and frustration about time consuming repairs next spring. The right maintenance now will protect your sprayer from damage caused by the freezing temperatures during late fall and winter to help improve its longevity and resale value.

Here are our tips and recommendations for long-term storage of your sprayer:

  • Clean and wash the entire sprayer to remove dirt, debris, oil, grease, chemicals and fertilizer. Once tanks have been cleaned, nozzles, screens and filters should be removed and cleaned separately in a bucket containing water and the recommended cleaning agent.
  • Always remember to read the product specimen label for the last product or chemical used and adhere to personal protective equipment requirements when cleaning.
  • Touch up any chips, scratches and rusted areas with the appropriate protective paint to reduce corrosion.
  • Lubricate exposed areas, such as hydraulic cylinder rods, to minimize corrosion.
  • Fill the fuel tank and add a conditioner. The conditioner will stabilize the fuel for extended storage periods, and a full tank minimizes condensation. Also, drain the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) tank, if applicable.
  • Change engine oil and other lubricants. Follow the operator’s manual guidelines for appropriate fluid and filter changes.
  • Clean the product system flow meter.
  • Remove spray tips and nozzle bodies from the nozzle body assemblies and store separately. Maintaining the sprayer’s nozzle is imperative to achieving the best spray performance, and the cost to do so is nominal compared with the cost of chemical used. Spray nozzle tips can wear over time, with dry chemicals in suspension causing higher rates of wear than liquid chemicals. That’s why it’s important to check the nozzle flow rates, look for potential problems and confirm the accuracy of the sprayer. After you have rinsed and cleaned your sprayer, look for mismatched and worn nozzles and damaged nozzle screens. Replace nozzles if needed and make sure to remove nozzle tips and nozzle bodies from the nozzle body assemblies. Check spray tips for wear and replace as necessary.
  • Winterize the product system plumbing. Thoroughly flush the entire system, including fence row nozzles and foam marker systems, if equipped. Run Young’s Equipment Sprayer Antifreeze through the system (1 litre per foot boom length) to eliminate the possibility of freezing. Do not use liquid fertilizer, which can cause corrosion.
  • Charge batteries and then remove and store them in a safe area.
  • Remove rate controllers and electronic displays. Cold weather storage can cause issues with display screens.
  • Properly inflate tires and check on them occasionally through the winter. A tire left flat for an extended period can be ruined.

If you need parts, fluids or filters to get this important task done, give your local Young’s Equipment branch a call. We stock everything to get you going.

If you prefer to leave these essential tasks to the experts, now is the right time to do it! Winterization is a vital part of the Young’s Equipment Winter Inspections program, you’ll find the benefits and pricing between our two inspection levels outlined in the tables below.

 

 

No matter how you choose to approach sprayer winterization, it’s important that you do it before bone-chilling temperatures settle in. Remember: If you take care of your application equipment, it will help you take care of your crops season after season.

mmmm….blizzards….mmmmiracles….

Miracle Treat Day usually has Dairy Queen donate a portion of their proceeds to local children’s hospitals, in Saskatchewan that’s Jim Pattison’s Children’s Hospital. This year the event has been posponed, so we decided to make our own our own Miracle Treat Day by ordering blizzards and making a separate donation from our staff’s funds to the foundation.

A donation of $500.00 has been made, on behalf of the Regina’s Social Committee and Regina staff to the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
