The Cenex Total Protection Plan has been in place for over 50 years. Mark Severance, Herman MN farmer, has been adding his eligible equipment to the program since 2001, around the time when the co-op in Herman began offering the program to its patrons.

Having enrolled nineteen pieces of equipment in the warranty program over the years, Severance is quick to say the program is well worth it.  “We’ve added every piece of equipment that we can [to the program],” says Severance, and over the years he’s filed a few claims.  In April 2019, Cenex Total Protection Program again proved its worth to Severance, when he was awarded a check for over $23,000 to cover the repair expense for the front planetary on one of his tractors. 

The Cenex Total Protection Plan provides peace of mind for farmers, especially during the busiest times of the year.  By using Cenex Ruby Fieldmaster Premium Diesel Fuels and Cenex lubricants, users can get up to 10 years or 10,000 hours of engine and transmission coverage for new equipment (8 years or 8,000 hours on used equipment) as an extension of the original equipment manufacturers’ warranties.  LubeScan® oil analysis fluid sample reports taken regularly through the program also identify internal equipment condition issues early to stay ahead of potential downtime. 

Enrollment in the program is simple, and at $299 for new equipment ($399 for used), the upfront cost is a small price to pay for the value the program provides.  Contact a member of the CHS Energy Department for additional information on this program and how to enroll today.
