Seasonal Maintenance: Preparing Your Equipment for Summer

As we approach the warmer months, it's crucial to prepare your equipment for the busy season ahead. Regular maintenance is key to ensuring the longevity and reliability of your machinery. Specifically, the P2 Pickers are designed for years of dependable service, but their performance hinges on a consistent care routine. Here's how you can keep your P2 Pickers in prime condition this summer.

Daily Maintenance Routine

Every day, your equipment faces various challenges that can affect its performance. To ensure your P2 Pickers remain in top shape, start with these daily maintenance tasks:

  • Inspect for Damage: Regularly check your picker for any physical damage. Loose hardware can lead to bigger problems if not addressed promptly, so tighten anything that seems out of place.
  • Check Disc and Ball Comb Placement: The interaction between the discs and ball comb is vital for efficient picking. Make sure the fingers are not touching the discs; if they are, adjust the securing bolts to correct the placement and then retighten.
  • Remove Debris: During operation, it's common for objects like broken golf balls, pine cones, and rocks to get trapped between the discs. Clear these obstructions to prevent damage and maintain picking efficiency.

Monthly Maintenance Checks

To prevent long-term wear and tear, give your P2 Pickers a thorough check-up each month:

  • Clean Baskets and Discs: Use a hose to wash away accumulated dirt, grass clippings, and fertilizer. These substances can cause rust and corrosion if not removed regularly.
  • Inspect and Replace Discs: Look out for broken or loose discs. Any damaged discs should be replaced immediately to avoid impacting the picker's performance. For replacements, contact our support at 1-844-682-2354 or visit our online store.
  • Tighten and Lubricate: Ensure all discs are securely fastened. If you notice any movement side-to-side, it indicates loosening that needs attention. Also, apply lubricant to hinge points and zerk locations to facilitate smooth operation.

Seasonal Storage and Preparation

At the start of the season, and before storing your equipment, perform these steps to ensure your P2 Pickers are ready for work:

  • Thorough Cleaning: Wash, clean, and dry your picker meticulously to remove any remnants from previous use.
  • Lubrication and Replacement: Apply lubricant to all nuts, bolts, and movable parts. Any component showing rust or damage should be replaced to prevent future failures.
  • Proper Storage: When not in use, store your equipment in a sheltered or covered area to protect it from extreme weather conditions and environmental factors.


Maintaining your P2 Pickers is essential for optimal performance and durability, especially during the summer's demanding conditions. By following this regular inspection and maintenance schedule, you can discover and rectify any malfunctions early, preventing breakdowns and ensuring efficient ball picking.
