Why should you use Genuine Lindsay Parts?
“When critical parts fail, the pivot stops.” said John Elder, director of Aftermarket Sales at Lindsay Corporation. “When it’s hot and dry, even a few hours of downtime can damage your crop.”
Elder said the parts most likely to fail during the growing season include center drives, wheel gearboxes, couplers and electronic components.
“Pivots operate in dirty, hot, dusty and wet environments. You need parts that have been specifically designed for the machines and thoroughly tested in those environments. That’s what you get with Genuine Lindsay Parts,” said Elder. “You might save a little money with off-brand parts, but you’ll probably be testing them in the field. In the heart of the season, when the pivot is working as hard as it can, that’s risky.”
Elder added that trained Zimmatic technicians can service any brand of pivot.
“Our Zimmatic dealers do more than just sell parts,” he said. “We stand behind our products, and we have trained technicians that will support all of your pivot needs.”
He also suggests that you make note of performance issues you’re noticing now, so you can make needed repairs in the fall.
“If you’re noticing gearbox leaks or other signs of potential problems, make sure you address them as soon as the growing season is over,” he said. “No matter what brand of pivots you have in your field, proper maintenance provides better dependability, longer life and more productive growing seasons.”
