Has anyone had any issues with the pressure relief valve on the fuel .
Ours has done 300 hours and it just stopped no codes nothing
Found out it split the high pressure relief valve and it now runs like a bag of s**t .

No, was a bit thirsty though but put that down to being new. Alterntor burnt out at 200 hours. New wiring harness at 220 hours, steering seized solid at 250 hours and various other issues. Same tractor before i had it went at 5000 hours without a spanner on it

No dealer has it there was a hair line crack in the middle of it.The tractor just stopped dead ploughing at 7 kph.
They replaced it and now it runs like a bag of spanner’s bonnet vibrates at tick over, they are trying to blame the fuel !!!!

Are your other tractors running OK on the same fuel?? I'm assuming it's reputable good clean fresh fuel etc??
Out of curiosity what work was it doing when it stopped?? 🤔🚜

Watch the engine mounts.. due to 3 mounts not four they drop and the engine harness can give issues on them after that.

Seems like constant fuel problems with my new 215r. Filters only do 200 hours max, had 2 new electric fuel pumps. Sucking air in so had to put in a non return valve. All other machines on the farm (mostly JD) have no fuel problems. It also doesn’t run as smooth as it did when new.
