Deere lubricants keep farm running

Deere lubricants are helping one farmer make the most of his machinery on his mixed-enterprise farm

Mixed-enterprise Burrumbuttock farmer Justin Burns has confidence he is maximising his John Deere fleet’s uptime and saving money by investing in the quality and customisation of the original equipment manufacturer’s genuine lubricant product range, including Plus-50 II Premium engine oil and Hy-Gard hydraulic and transmission oil.

"I always think, when it comes to lubricants, a quality oil is much cheaper than having to buy replacement parts," Burns says.

"John Deere’s oils are designed specifically for John Deere equipment, which gives me peace of mind I won’t have any issues that are oil-related, and that I will be getting the most out of my equipment."

Another plus for the third-generation farmer is that the lubricants are formulated to perform under extreme loads and dusty, dirty conditions, like those in which his 855D Gator, 7430, 615R, 8120 and 9420 John Deere tractors, and a new S780 combine harvester operate.

Burns’ farm ‘Boxwood’, in the central southern Riverina region of NSW, is also home to his wife Lisa and children Austin (12), Mason (10), Lucy (7) and Jack (2).

The family also operates across Glencraig and Hardwicke and, in total, have 70 per cent of their land growing canola, wheat, barley and oats, with the balance used for sheep production across the trio of properties.

As a producer of a diverse range of commodities, Burns says another key attraction of the John Deere lubricant range is its ready availability.

"It’s always on the shelf at my dealership, Hutcheon and Pearce, but most of the time they will deliver it out to me," Burns says.

"It’s a terrific service. Albury is about 40 minutes away from here so it saves me time and means I can keep all of our machines operating in the paddock. When it’s the peak season and we are really busy, they will be out here about once a week, bringing the parts, oils and anything else we require."
