Is anyone using a newer model tractor for scraping duties? (Of any brand) How are you finding it? We're looking at replacing our 30 year old very worn out scraper tractor with a new one. I just wonder if the DPF which they all have fitted now is going to be a pain with the tractor never doing any very hard work for a period of time to get everything right up to temperature? Or is it a case that the automatic cleaning cycles keep everything in check and it's a case of leaving it running to do its thing every few months? They only have a little 2.9l 3 cylinder engine so they shouldn't take too much warming up. We've got a DPF on one of the main tractors and it's never been a problem, the light just comes on every 6 months or so to say it's cleaning and you don't know anything else about it but that tractor always tends to be doing heavy work. Also has anyone got any experience of the little Indian built JD 5E series? We're looking at a 5058E. Look forward to hearing any views.
