big fan of our case maxxum 145 but the active drive 8 gearbox is a problem area and one case know about but have been very slow to react. Third time it’s cut drive altogether 👎 away to sick bay again

Same gearbox in T6 ?

Not sure,brake to clutch probably a different name under blue paint 🤷‍♂️ 3rd time it likes to stop drive. Error codes that would drive you mad. Spool error codes since new on coming up 2 yrs.Great driving machine but there’s plenty other options to look at

just cuts out. Switch it off and start again and see how long it lasts, got to the point it was every few minutes. I’d need to go back through my messages but from new they’ve done it too some extent. Various different codes. Just been split, might get it back late in the week. Have you got electric spools in yours? They give constant bother cutting out individual spools.

No manual but mid mount electric for the loader and that chucks a code if you change the flow rate. Thats the only fault iv had with it so far. Touch wood. I know its mate that was ordered in at the same time has had a cab off job as it was constantly chucking codes

we’ve 2 that came together, one is slightly worse than the other but both never been good, quite a few software updates we’re always told will solve it (sometimes makes it worse)
