Stocking up on spare parts on your farm equipment

Let’s face it, we live in a finite world that’s bound by the laws of gravity and inertia. What this means is that the products that we use are eventually going to break down and malfunction. Farming equipment, just like any other product, is not exempt from these laws. Being a farmer, it would be prudent as well as reasonable for you to have spare parts for all the equipment that you use in your farm. It could be used combine partsor used tractor parts, or just about any other spare part that you would need. Sure, it may be expensive to have them lying around, but do you honestly have to wait for your equipment to break down before you go out to buy replacement parts? That does not sound like a good idea, and rightly so because it really isn’t a good idea. Imagine the amount of time you stand to lose if your equipment breaks down and you don’t have the parts to replace the busted ones. Your harvest could be delayed by a few hours to a couple of days depending on the availability of the equipment you’re planning on buying. That’s literally hundreds and thousands of dollars lost due to machine breakdown. So let’s see, having spare parts at the ready where you can have repairs done in minutes or hours, or having to buy spare parts when your equipment breaks down which could take days. What do you think is the better choice?
