My 595 with a c13 cat motor runs on the hotter side as a rule. Maybe check the thermostat Then verify that the gauge is correct. Mine is just a number of bars on a screen but it’s not much for telling the actual temperature. is the fan belt worn and slipping at high speed,maybe check the tensioner is doing it’s job. Air filter?? wrong engine oil ? Rad semi plugged inside. Have you changed the coolant recently and have an air pocket. has this started sudden or been getting worse as time passes.

Any ideas on a lexion 750 running hot all the time have blown radiators out got an angled nozzle and check all holes were clean? Running hot all the time and can’t think what else to try?
Join the club! Myself and @Northdowns Martin have Lexion 750s, both of them are prone to overheating. The radiator is just not big enough. Only seems to be an issue on that model, ours is a 2012.
Blowing it out never seems to get everything clean, it helps but it is only temporary. To have a trouble free run, it appears that the only answer is to jet wash it out. Ideally you want to do it out of season when you've got time to get all the ancilliary parts out of the way. We did ours yesterday .... hopefully it will get us to the end of harvest without needing anymore than the airline!

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
