Tractors and other farm equipment have many metal parts, bearings and oscillation points, and operate at a wide range of temperatures in less than ideal conditions. All this means that you need a reliable grease by your side to help prevent wear, corrosion, and failure.

What to Consider When Buying Farm Equipment & Tractor Grease
- Single Pack vs. Multi Pack
We recommend buying grease in multipacks for two reasons. The first is that, like anything, you will save more money when buying in bulk. But it’s also a good idea to buy in bulk because it’s always good to have some tractor grease at hand at all times.
We don’t need to tell you that when on the farm, it always seems to be those things that you need most which you have run out of. A bottle of grease can finish faster than you think, too.
- Waterproof, Rust and Oxidation Resistant
It goes without saying that any grease for your farm equipment that you buy should be waterproof and resistant to rust and oxidation. We’ve made sure to include only the best greases that have these properties.
- Ease of Application
Some greases come in bottles that are easier to apply than others. While not always necessary, it can be a good idea to buy a grease gun and coupler to make application as quick and easy as possible.
