“The basic thing a man should know is how to change a tire, and how to drive a tractor.”
– Timothy Olyphant
If your song playlist includes classics like Joe Diffie’s “John Deere Green,” Rodney Atkins’ “A Man on a Tractor” and “Friends with Tractors,” Craig Morgan’s “International Harvester,” Jason Aldean’s “Big Green Tractor,” and Kenny Chesney’s “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” … then this blog is for you! It has been said that a farm without a tractor is just a garden. Can you even be a farmer without a tractor? I suppose it’s possible, but it’d just be a whole lot more work.
“It’s no good kicking progress in the teeth – there’s nothing wrong with a tractor.”
– Murray Head
Tractors really are an integral part of the vast majority of U.S. farms. What can you do with a tractor? The better question is what can’t you do with a tractor! Tractors have been around for over 125 years, and they’ve become useful for all sorts of agricultural and residential applications. Modern tractors aren’t just for ploughing, tilling, planting, and harvesting fields; they also come in handy for routine lawn care, landscape maintenance, moving mulch, spreading fertilizer, clearing bushes, and more! John Deere, Ford, Massey Ferguson, Kubota, Case, Mahindra, and New Holland are the most popular tractor brands in America today. But regardless of brand, if you own a tractor, you understand. Those who don’t… well, they really can’t appreciate what it feels like to climb up into that seat, put your hands on that big steering wheel, and start getting some stuff done!
“That’s the great thing about a tractor. You really can’t hear the phone ring.”
– Jeff Foxworthy
Tractor life is an honest way of life, but your tractor won’t honestly be at its best if you don’t take some basic measures to protect it. Whether you work the land for your livelihood, for your personal family use, or just for pleasure, we at Carport Central appreciate you. We also understand that there are some unique challenges that go along with working the land at any level. In order to keep everything running smoothly, you need some reliable protection and storage – not just for your tractor, but for your other equipment and supplies, too. A metal farm building is really your best solution!
What’s better about a steel farm building? Pretty much everything! For starters, you won’t have any of the same moisture concerns you would with a wooden barn or building. Steel won’t rot like wood, and it offers more reliable protection from weather extremes. You won’t have the same worries about termites or pests, either. They aren’t attracted to steel as a food source, and they really can’t harm it. There are fewer fire concerns, too, since steel is inflammable.
There are more advantages with choosing a steel agricultural shelter, too. It’s a more flexible construction material than wood or aluminum. You can expand or adapt a steel structure with greater ease as your needs grow or change. And don’t forget about the differences in maintenance, either. Do you really want to have to fool with a barn or wooden building that needs repainting or restaining every few years? Steel buildings don’t need refinishing, and cleaning is a breeze. Just hose your structure out every so often, or use a pressure washer for an occasional deeper cleaning.
In order to keep your farm or agricultural business running smoothly, one of the best investments you can make is in a sturdy steel facility. Here are just a few popular applications and uses available to you:
