Only you can prevent combine fires

Spending a little time maintaining the combine before harvest and before you go to the field each day this fall will decrease your chances of going up in smoke!

When it comes to preventing combine fires, there are just two key points to remember: prevention and preparation.

Prevention

Preparation

So as you are getting ready for the 2011 harvest, take the right steps to prevent a combine fire, but be prepared just in case.
