    None so blind as those that won't see.

    Yes our Axion 840 did the same at 6500 hours. It's an unnecessarily expensive repair from a bad design fault in the earlier Axions which Claas don't help you out with - the sensor is on the outside of the bell housing in later Axions making it a simple & cheap repair
