Winter Weather and Maple Equipment
Cool weather is approaching. It is a good time to weather-proof and animal-proof syrup equipment and buildings. Look for entrance holes into buildings for small and large animals and close them appropriately. Protect your equipment from snow and ice damage over the winter months. Evaporators, flue pans, pumps, tanks and other equipment stored outside can be damaged from freezing rain, snow and ice and may need costly repairs if not ready for cold weather.
