Fueling large, off-road equipment isn’t a new idea and has been happening for many years. However, finding the right contractor to help work with can make the practice a lot more manageable. For farmers with massive tractors, harvesters, and other types of equipment that run on diesel fuel, onsite fuel offers a lot of key benefits. Read on to learn why fuel delivery makes so much sense as a farm owner!
Store Less Fuel on Your Farm
Fueling your farm equipment requires you to either have fuel deliveries regularly or to store the fuel you’ll use on the farm elsewhere. With a correctly implemented storage system, you are able to store enough to keep your operation running in between deliveries. However, storing fuel is not ideal and comes with a lot of challenges. Instead of storing fuel, you can have it delivered to your farm so you can fill up the machinery directly. This will reduce the cost of fuel loss. Although delivery requires planning to make sure you’ve got enough fuel until the next delivery day, methods like minimum tillage, GPS tracking, and using equipment that is the correct size for the tractor can reduce the amount of fuel you’ll use and help you plan how much you need to be delivered.
Reduce Safety Hazards on Your Farm
Anytime you are storing flammable liquids, you carry the risk of an explosion or fire. The requirements are very stringent for fuel storage on your farm’s property, and you might find it difficult to meet the requirements without spending a lot of money on a storage system for your fuel. Onsite fueling of your equipment reduces the risk of storing an enormous amount of fuel on your farm. If you can fill up the equipment at least once a week, fueling onsite will work for you, and you will not have to deal with a big tank sitting on the farm and the resulting dangers either.
