What's this warming light?

Not aimed at the OP, but this just highlights where we're generally at with steering wheel jockeys with a total naivety of the mechanics under their numb ass. Drive it til it stops brigade, no f**ks given cos dad / boss will pick up the likely £1000+ bill.

In the modern and wider world sadly many (even basic) workshop skills seem to have been separated from the driving job. I doubt many lorry drivers touch very much under their bonnet.....the lorry probably just goes through the workshop on a regular basis for checks.

My vacuum cleaner has a similar warning light and when you press the special button it vibrates the hell out of the filter so you can keep going a bit longer.
Maybe they need to introduce the same function on tractors.

If you can get hold of a circuit diagram for these Bosch ELCs let me know. I like to be ready to fix things after Armageddon!

I do remember getting a light like that come on on a previous combine and not being sure what it actually meant. We didn't have a manual for that one.

I did stop and try to work out what it was at least. Unfortunately it was in about the furthest field from the yard and my first guess was something to do with the hydraulics. It took quite a bit longer than needed to find the cause and then only a few minutes to tap out the air filter.

I'll say it'll take more than a shake to clear it. Just to confuse the problem,on our Manitou the french pr!cks thought it would be clever to use that warning light for the hydraulic return filter aswell as the the air
looking at it 2 across is the hydraulic filter warning light. on the dash
I'd go with air filter blocked it takes a fair bit before they come on tho so a simple tap out might not. fix it
 

Claas joins the autonomous tractor club

Claas has taken a minority shareholding in the Dutch autonomous tractor startup company, AgXeed B.V.

The new company has developed a tractor designed to be autonomous from the ground up, rather than try to adapt existing machines, or create smaller robots dedicated to a limited range of tasks.

AgXeed’s pilot machine is a diesel hybrid powered unit on tracks which uses a suite of software which, the company claims, is easily scalable.

Like many small technology start-ups seeking to gain a foothold in the machinery market, the company also points to the product as being part of a larger system rather than just another way of performing standard tasks
