 Storage of Hydraulic Arm

I don't yet have a place to store my tractor. The horses get the barn!I wanted to know if I should put anything on the smooth, unpainted tubing that is part of my hydraulic loader (I'm sorry I don't know what this is part called). It's not rusted or anything I just wondered if it could benefit from a layer of grease. It does not always get covered by my tarp and is exposed when the loader is lowered to the ground.

 Storage of Hydraulic Arm

Farmer Wannabe, if you're talking about the cylinder rods (only thing I can think of from your description), my manual mentions "storing" the loader and says to coat all exposed rods and pins with grease. I'm not sure how long you have to leave it to qualify as "storing."

Sounds like the cylinder rods to me. It would say it depends on your climate. That shiny surface is remarkably durable and rust resistent. Most tractors that get used regularly leave the loader exposed to the weather and they last a long time. On mine, when the weather looks like it will be a lot of rain or sand storms that month, I retract all the cylinders before I turn it off. That takes care of the problem.

There are sprays sold in ag supply stores that leave a light grease coating on parts. I don't think use of them is necessary for hydraulic cylinder shafts, but I use them anyway, sometimes. I use my loader around highway salt slush, and there isn't any corrosion on the shaft ends that aren't retracted into the cylinders. If highway salt doesn't corrode them, I'm not going to worry about it much.
